Yes, just wanted to add that I've read somewhere that George
Reeves did practice some sort of mock suicide ritual with his hand gun using blanks. Being careful to hold it a distance. However, the wounds found were contact wounds to his temple. So, if George Reeves was attemting another mock suicide, then the theory of an accidental discharge wouldn't follow. Unless, of course, he was attempting, as you say, to pick up his gun for some unknown purpose, which caused an accidental discharge. But doesn't this still ignore the fact that his wounds were contact wounds?
