More often than people think. The human body is resilient, and most people aren't that good with anatomy.

Also, we have the issue that suicides and suicide attempts in general are mislabeled as accidents due to 1) insurance issues 2) social acceptance.

Ok that's a hell of a corner case you linked to though, from 34 years ago, I cannot imagine that being representative, it reminds me of people "ODing" on non-lethal medications in "suicide attempts" that were never going to work out. It's easier to get a useful firearm in than it is to Jerry rig something gun like once, and that person did it twice.
