Oops. It is too easy to get too comfortable with a firearm. It becomes second nature, and that can lead to a lack of judgment. It is a bummer that he shot himself, but I bet he will never put his finger in the trigger bar before he is ready to shoot again.

He might still have a job, but he did just get fired.

Another example of why one should never become complacent with a firearm no matter how long you have been handling them.
