BuzzFeed Felt like they could Out Shoot Keanu Reeves

BuzzFeed Youtuber stumbles across a video of Taran Tactical training Keanu Reeves on tactical shooting. The course of fire was a typical 3 gun type. So BuzzFeed Blue wanted to see if they can take an ordinary person (gun newbies) and have them train to go through the course of fire, but be faster than Johnny Wick. Johnny Wick completed this course of fire in 19 seconds.

So BuzzFeed Blue crew narrator and Sharie Elle volunteered to take on this challenge. The training was done one day (all day) at Taran Butler of Taran Tactical Innovation. The same trainer that taught Keanue Reeves how to shoot tactically.

Taran Butler is considered the Michael Jordan of competitive shooting, he at one time had an 11 year winning streak.

BuzzFeed narrator and Sharie Elle will endure the same training that K Reeves went through and its basically “3 Gun” training, which consists of a shotgun, pistol and a rifle.(AR15)

So let’s see how they did.


Well they didn’t beat Keanu Reeves time but it looks like they sure learned a lot about guns.
The participants was intimidated and excited about the whole experience.

Watching gunfights in the movies is very entertaining and fun.
Though we know Hollywood is fame for its theatrics and cool gunfight choreographs. Keanu Reeves is one actor that does a great job of keeping it real with precision and speed.

For the upcoming movie of John Wick: Chapter 2, actor Keanu Reeves beefed up his training from Taran Butler of Taran Tactical Training. Keanu puts in some trigger time in a fast pace fashion. He dedicated himself to three times a week of practical gunfighting shooting similar to what you see in 3 Gun Nation. Perfection at its finest, for you 3GN fans is Keanu Reeves shooting worthy?, let us know below in the comment.

Taran Tactical Training

Taran: People want realism, they want the real deal, and that’s what’s happening with John Wick Chapter 2. [shooting]

It is setting the bar so far beyond any shootout stuff you’ll ever see in a movie. It’ll blow your mind.

JJ Perry: When I got a call from the director, saying ‘what can I do to make two better?’ I said, ‘well, we have to make Keyanu Reeves better’, and the only way to do that is to train him harder. As soon as I met Taran I saw him shoot and I was like, ‘this is our guy’.

Rochelle: When it comes to actors, Taran can deliberate his actions, when he can watch someone do one run, and he can pinpoint every problem that you have, and he can relate it so simply that it is ingrained quick.

JJ: We brought Keyanu out here three times a week, and his growth with gunplay, it was almost exponential. Every other time he would come here.

Taran: He got really good over a period of five or six training sessions, and he is hands-down the best weapons actor out there right now.

JJ: And I attribute that directly to Taran Butler’s skills as an instructor.

“Six nine two!”
