Five or six times? Accidentally?

Panama City - A man is in critical condition after shooting himself in the head five or six times at a Panama City gun range.
The Bay County sheriff's office says the shooting was self-inflicted but doesn't know yet if it was accidental or on purpose.
The man walked into Jays Guns and Accessories on Highway 390 near the old airport to use the range just before one o clock. First responders got the call half an hour later that someone had been shot multiple times in the head.
Paramedic's rushed the man to Bay Medical.
Jays Guns and Accessories is divided into a gun shop and a shooting range. Major Tommy Ford of the Bay County Sheriff’s Department told NewsChannel 7 no one was in the range with the man at the time.
"The employee of the shop was watching from the shop side separated by the wall. There were no other customers in the store and no other subjects shooting in the range area at the time."
Authorities haven't released much information about the man yet, but we do know he is in his mid twenties and carried an out-of-state driver's license.

Six times and he survived? Always use enough gun, folks. Always. You just can't trust those 9mms to get the job done - ask Jared Loughner and Gabby Giffords......
No, I don't know that it was a 9mm that the wanna-be dead guy used but I couldn't resist the jab.

That was my first thought too. Why use a 9mm? He could have grazed his head with one .45 hyrashok, enough said.

"The employee of the shop was watching from the shop side separated by the wall." So officals couldn't tell from eyewitness statements or the fact it was 5 or 6 shots? Ask the FBI,maybe it was done by a loosly knit band of meth users with a history of violence.
