Trainer of the stars and dubbed one of the most versatile competitive shooters in the world, Hollywood’s Taran Butler is a no-nonsense, get-it-done-now guy. You might know him as one of Benelli’s 3-Gun pros, and he has collected multiple championships, including the Rocky Mountain World 3-Gun Tactical Championship and SMM 3-Gun Tactical Championship. Recently, Butler once again trained Keanu Reeves for the actor's role in John Wick: Chapter 2.

During the height of a previous competitive season, Butler took time to reveal what he carries in his trusty range bag, made by Green Mountain. “I have been using the Green Mountain bag since 1996, and it’s awesome—not overly big or too small, and it can handle brutal baggage handlers. It’s by far the ultimate bag,” said Butler. For 3-Gun matches, Butler shoots a custom TR-1 Ultimate AR15, TTI Glock 34, TTI Ultimate Benelli M2 and a custom Infinity 1911.
