We have another clip of Keanu Reeves shredding a 3-Gun course while training for the smash action hit John Wick: Chapter 2, now on Blu-Ray, DVD, and OD. It’s further proof that he’s not just another actor who poses with a blank-shooting gun for a movie role. He really puts the work in to get it right.
In the minute-long clip, we see Reeves perform quick-draw hip shots with a pistol (the same TTI custom Glock he uses in the film) followed by a series of seven blinding shots on steel silhouettes and a final point-blank shot on a cardboard target.
Next is some rifle work while moving on a series of targets including a jug of water just for variety—followed by some semi-auto shotgun work with the Benelli M4.
Then it’s some more pistol work, followed by a transition to an AR and engaging a series of targets with 45-degree offset iron sights.
Last we see Reeves tackle a long string of steel targets from multiple stations with a pistol-caliber AR rifle topped with a red dot sight. Once he’s finished, another shooter, who looks a lot like Jade Victoria Struck, exclaims that his time was 10.92.
The video’s description reveals the actor met the legendary competition shooter and trainer Taran Butler exactly two years ago, June 27. “Two years ago today, Taran met the man, the myth, the legend.”
And if you had any doubts, John Wick 3 is very much in the works, and should tie up the open-ended sequel, which grossed about twice as much as the sleeper hit original.
