So I want to get a long gun tomorrow (black powder rifle). I want to shoot myself in the mouth pointing at the brain stem but it might be really hard to pull that off just because of how long it is. I don't think one of my arms is as long as a black powder rifle so I'm wondering if anyone has any tips on how to do it? My state has strict gun laws so even a private dealer requires a background check so that's not an option. And I am still under 21 so a black powder revolver is out of the question. I want to make sure I am right.

Should I maybe use my foot to pull the trigger?
I was planning on using my foot with the rifle that I have. Someone on my thread that I made about this recommended not to do it that way but I don’t really see the issue. Just put your big toe on the trigger and boom.

Please don't do this.
There are other ways that don't involve such risk as you can't even aim the gun properly with your foot.

I feel like you could aim it properly as long as you have the bottom of the gun on the floor while sitting in a chair and have it at the correct angle while holding on tight with your hands before putting your toe near the trigger. Maybe I’m wrong but that’s just how I visualize it.

Might be able to rig something like paracord around the trigger and pull on it or something to make it pull the trigger.

Just saw off your shotgun ! Shorter barrel, much easier to aim ! I just sawed off mine to a 40cms barrel, tried dryfiring, looked at the mirror to see how I was aiming, looked good, a few more rehearsals and I’m ready !

Just out of curiosity what did you use to cut the barrel? Just a hack saw?

One of those - you can get special discs for cutting metal. Well I must admit I'm not very gifted with DIY stuff, I managed to completely ruin the first disk, it blew up and the bits thrown around by the machine cut holes into my belly....nearly did a pre-CTB ! :pfff: But then I inserted the second disk cocrrectly and it went fine. Perfect length now to aim correctly and still be able to reach the trigger. Also it's a double-barrelled shotgun so it's be two bullets instead of just one and I can fire them simultaneously with the double trigger....nice !
