    My first thought is none, but if I had to choose... Firing squad definitely. Isn't firing squad being phased out as an option though?

    The options go state by state. The only state that still has the firing squad IIRC is Utah... I think. But I'd want to be gassed... depending on what gas is being used.

    actually about a month ago someone was executed by firing squad (I saw it on the news).

    I believe there is more than just Utah that still has it.

    The firing squad is an automated process now. Its a box with a firing system in it, and they position the person to sit with their heart in the center of the bullets trajectory. Button gets pressed, and the machine fires at a random time interval. Saw it on History Channel.

    The guy who was executed by firing squad last month was by 5 volunteer police officers, 4 guns with live rounds and 1 loaded with a blank. If im not wrong, I think all states have abolished the use of death by firing squad, replaced with lethal injection, including Utah in 2004. However those who received the death sentence before the law was passed can still opt for it in Utah.

    Sauce: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-504083_162-20008133-504083.html

    The executioners were all police officers who volunteered for the task and remain anonymous. They stood about 25 feet from Gardner, behind a wall cut with a gunport, and were armed with a matching set of .30-caliber Winchester rifles. One was loaded with a blank so no one knows who fired the fatal shot. Sandbags stacked behind Gardner's chair kept the bullets from ricocheting around the cinderblock room.
