Did you see the video of Keanu Reeves tearing through a 3-gun course as he trained for filming John Wick 2? After seeing that video many people took interest in competitive shooting. If Keanu can learn to shoot in real life, maybe it’s something we’d all like to learn. Keanu did have an advantage. He was trained by one of the best in the business of competitive shooting.
Keanu was trained by Taran Butler, a 10-time California 3-Gun Champion (and numerous other championships and wins). Simply put, Butler is one of the best shooters and shooting instructors out there. After watching the video of Keanu running through the 3-gun course, BuzzFeed decided they wanted to train like Keanu, so they went out and trained with Butler (tarantacticalinnovations.com).
This video shows the side of guns and gun competitions we all know, but many people don’t. Since it came from such an unlikely source, we wanted to share it with our readers. Appropriately, the most important thing they stressed was safety. Guns aren’t dangerous, if they’re handled with respect. This video shows the sport of competitive shooting in a positive way, a nice change from how firearms are often portrayed by media outlets such as Buzzfeed.
