John Wick's Trainer

We see John Wick expertly and efficiently 'eliminate' all foes with lightning speed and accuracy on the screen. Ever wonder how Keanu Reeves got his apparent skill?

Dillon Precision puts out their monthy "Blue Press" magazine to all who purchase their excellent progressive loaders. This months issue has an in-depth article on Taran Butler, John Wick's Gun Coach. The article goes on to explain that Reeves is one of a few "A List" guys in movies that actually HAS the real skill, earned with many hours of training.

Taran Butler holds more gun championships than any human I'm aware of, and has trained other Hollywood types that actually seek real weapon handling skills. We all know most movies have more bogus gun handling than we'd like, and it's refreshing to see a few of those guys getting REAL training from REAL experts so as to not insult those of us who have been around guns all their lives.

It's a good read if you have access to the magazine. John Wick 3 is in the works now. Hang on!

I also enjoy the Wicks quite a bit. Also, Taran Butler is probably the most badass tubby little guy out there, and his +2 base plates are great too.

Taran Butler's company, TTI (Taran Tactical Innovations) has a website that features all the weapons custom built for the Wick series, in addition to his excellent handgun, rifle and shotguns and accessories.

Badass may be an understatement for this fellow!

I really enjoyed the first 2 John Wick movies and can't wait to see John Wick #3. It will be out on May 17, 2019.
