My local newspaper ran a front-page story this weekend about a 20-year-old local resident who shot himself in the head with a very small, toy-like pistol. He's in critical condition. I wish him a complete recovery.

The man is an employee of the local Goodwill store. According the paper, he was in the "lock-up" room of the store: a room where donated items that might be dangerous or, I'm guessing, of substantial value are locked away.

Police aren't sure if the man attempted suicide or it was an accidental shooting. At this point, they're also not sure if the gun, which they describe as a miniature, "toy-like," weapon, was a donation or the man brought it into the store with him. READ MORE?

First off...best wishes for a full recovery for this guy...secondly..you're so completely right, you don't need to have the lastest, greatest and spendiest equipment on the market to get good shots. I'm in no means a pro, far from it, and most take outdoors and some wildlife photos. I've seen guys with more money wrapped up in one lens then I have with everything put togather and they still can't take many good shots. Learning how to use what you have to work with and what you can afford is far more important than how much you can spend. What good is spending up to if not more than $3k on a camera and $2k or more on a lens if you don't know how to use them. I kinda find it funny seeing people with money like that spent on gear and only using auto mode and here I am, just out taking pics 'cause I enjoy doing so, with under $2k total invested in full manual mode getting better shots.
