TFB tries their hand at Out Shooting Keanu Reeves
A while back BuzzFeed Youtuber stumbled across a video of Taran Tactical training Keanu Reeves on tactical shooting for the movie role John Wick.
Buzzfeed tried their hands on gun shooting, they did ok (you can read about it below).
Fast Forward to Now
The Firearm Blog had heard what the Buzzfeed guys did so TFB decides, why not us?, But the differences is that TFB also wanted to create some shooting tips segments from Da Man himself "Taran Butler".
So TFB flew down to L.A. to meet with Taran Butler and have him train TFB. (which is James Reeves)
Taran quoted that he can train TFB (James Reeves) to fire 2 rounds at two targets in 2 seconds. James was skeptical but went with it anyway. (Hey, free training!) Something that stands out about this training is the fundamental that Taran advocates over and over, as these are the building blocks for whether youre into 3 Gun shoot or for self-defense. Here's some short takes on that training, but obviously, watch the video, its an eye opener:
-Drawing from the holster - Taran is very articulate about economy of motion from the draw to target acquisition.
-Reloading again its about economy of motion and doing things less, its all about saving time and being fast.
These two basics are the building blocks which leads to doing more advanced shooting as Taran describes. Read and see the footage of shoot like John Wick.
John Wick killed three men with a pencil!
“John Wick killed three men with a pencil!”
“A F*$king Pencil! Who does that?”
John Wick 2 looked mostly CGI to me...
Thanks for that chuckle!
At the range, he’s fine.
On film, it’s over-stylized nonsense.
It’s been said here before, look to Tom Cruise’s “Collateral” character for accurate, efficient gun work.
I've done that in half the time, one handed, while moving. Seriesly, it's not that hard.
A F*$king Pencil! Who does that?
G. Gordon Liddy. That’s probably where they got it from.
Now that's a quick draw!
“He’s the man you send to kill the Boogeyman...”
He was still slinging “lead”.
“Tom Cruises Collateral
The most amazing shooting ever captured on film.
Simply amazing for those who pay attention.
Of course, nobody is that good. Right?
I’d rather shoot like Jerry Miculek.
I'd rather shoot like Stephen Curry......
I hate you.
