John Wick 2. I sure hope he wasn't wearing one of those bracelets at the Oscars.

I'm coming around on him. In his younger days, I couldn't stand him. (ie.. Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure) But John Wick was a pretty awesome movie. :shock:

In the last few seconds of that, the woman's back you see is Dana Workman. She's the proud owner of a Taran Butler custom Glock, and she and Keanu shoot regularly and train with Butler often.

A year ago, I never would have guessed about Reeves. He was never one of my favorite actors. But once I got the low-down from Workman that, indeed, he really is a gun guy--owns a bunch a shoots regularly--his movies jumped way up my will-watch list.

The guys and gals who make all their money in action movies and then spew incessantly about gun control...they can do without my viewership.

interesting, i would have guessed the training was just for his films.
When you see him in non standard interviews (not promoting a movie) he really seems quite like a good guy and he's also heavily into motorcycles owns his own company.

If you need even another reason to like him, the rumor is he gave a substantial part of his earnings from the Matrix movies (something ridiculous like 80%) to the special effects/CGI engineers working behind the scenes. He seems like a stand-up guy.

Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure was awesome. Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey was not. I was 10 when it came out so cut me some slack. :biggrinjester: About his only other movie I liked was John Wick. Maybe it's because there was not much dialogue. :fire :fire :fire :fire

You fellers notice the speed-load of a single shotgun-shell from the match-saver just ahead of the port at around the 25-sec mark? Nice to see someone do that.

Yes, I've seen that before. That was a quick reload too. He did a great job. He's been at that for a while. Good vid Andy! Thanks for posting. :tiphat:

Not mine, I'm just pointing out something I noticed which nobody mentioned so I figured 'Just in case folks missed it....'

Yeppers. Further evidence that this isn't just a publicity stunt. He's spent time behind a trigger.

Wonder how he'd do with an 870, though. ;-)
