A little while back, a video surfaced showing actor Keanu Reeves doing some serious 3 gun training in preparation for the filming of “John Wick: Chapter 2” (which turned out to be awesome, by the way). It was great footage. So great, in fact, that the folks over at BuzzFeed decided to try and duplicate it by sending actors Josh Davis and Sherial McKinney down to Simi Valley to train under Taran Butler of Taran Tactical, the same guy who taught Keanu how to hit 19 targets in 19 seconds in that viral video.

The goal was to beat Keanu’s time going through the same course, and with only a day to prepare, the pressure was on.
“First we had to work on our stance, and then our draw. The draw is important because he had to make sure we do it quickly, but also safely,” said Davis. “Once we got that down and we felt comfortable with it, we got into shooting live ammo. We would do it over and over and over and over and over and over until we had it down. Seems like it wouldn’t be hard but you are learning all these steps individually that you then have to put together to be one solid fluid action.”
So, how’d they do? Watch the video above to find out.
