I love watching newbies discover guns. Chances are if they’re open-minded, intelligent and fun-loving they’ll walk away from the experience with a real appreciation and enthusiasm for exercising their 2A rights.
Case in point, the video above from Buzzfeed features two of its contributors learning the basics of 3 Gun in an effort to shoot like John Wick, the fictional character played by (IMO, one of the most underrated action stars of our time) Keanu Reeves.
Both of the contributors seemed to walk away from the training with indelible smiles on their faces.
“I think I did better than I thought I would at this point, so I’m feeling pumped right now,” said the girl.
“This experience was intimidating yet exciting,” she added. “It really does get your blood pumping, it’s kind of out of body.”
The guy meanwhile offered this assessment, “Easily one of the coolest things I have ever gotten to do.”
This video really illustrates how easy it is for us to win hearts and minds. A day at the range, some cool guns, some awesome instructors, and a great course is pretty much all you need to convert the uninitiated.
Oh, for those that don’t know, Buzzfeed is a quasi-news, quasi-entertainment destination with all sorts of click-bait-type content. It’s a millennial magnet. So, hopefully, more youngsters see this and take the plunge either by reaching out to a friend that owns guns or by visiting their local range.
