As a gun owner, you are likely tired of the many movie tropes surrounding guns. Action stars are often blessed with accuracy that defies physics, unlimited ammo, silent suppressors, and .50 caliber handguns that somehow have zero recoil. Of course, not all of Hollywood falls victim to these tropes and if you saw the first John Wick movie you know that it offered something a bit different. Now, Keanu Reeves is back for John Wick 2 and it looks like he is better than ever.
Shooting with Taran Tactical
Yes, that is Keanu Reeves in the video. And yes, that is an impressive performance. Apparently, he is taking his role as John Wick very seriously, demonstrating a real interest in learning proper firearm handling. This is just a taste of the work he has been putting in with Taran Butler to get himself ready for the new movie.
Making John Wick 2 Realistic
Leading up to the production of John Wick 2, Reeves is spending a lot of time training for the role. Apparently, this is just one of the many drills he has been doing in preparation for the movie. In addition to tactical firearm drills, he has also spent no shortage of time training to get his hand-to-hand fighting skills up to snuff. So, if you like checking out more realistic action movies, John Wick 2 could be a great option to explore.
About John Wick
The first John Wick movie was released back in 2016. Staring Keanu Reeves, the story centered around an ex-hitman who comes out of retirement to track down a group of gangsters. It is action-packed and, as far as Hollywood movies go, remains a bit more realistic in its portrayal of firearms. Sure, everything tends to go his way, but you don’t see most of the usual gun tropes.
In the second movie, viewers get to return to John Wick on his continued adventures. Leading up to release, there is still some speculation about what this plot might entail. Judging by this video of Reeves practicing at the Taran Tactical range, it should include some more exciting firearm scenes and without the usual Hollywood stereotypes.
Shooting a Taran Tactical
Of course, Keanu couldn’t ask for better instructions than he is getting from Taran Tactical. Known for its custom, competitive-ready models, Taran Tactical produces some of the finest performance firearms on the market today. This is to be expected with a company run by competitive shooting champion Taran Butler. After his competitive career started in 1994, Butler achieved a plethora of impressive victories. Wanting to produce weapons that could serve the competitive champion like himself, he started Taran Tactical. Today, he not only produces these high-performance weapons, but also offers personal instruction to those who are willing to pay for it.
