    As someone who has shot with him on several occasions, he is the real deal when it comes to shooting skills. While many may take issue with what has recently come to light, his shooting accomplishments are genuine.

    I stand corrected. Based opinions off of his YouTube videos, which haven’t been very impressive compared to top USPSA and Steel shooters.

    Well you would be way wrong. Taran is a lifetime 100% Grand Master in USPSA and has been in the top 20 USPSA shooters in Open and Limited for decades. I have witnessed him stomp top USPSA Hosers, even after unrecoverable death jams. Now to be fair, that was some years ago. He is the real deal, I have shot with him since SWCPL. Now, you either like his goofy vids or you don't, but that has nothing to with his shooting skills.

    seeks, do you shoot USPSA or 3 gun? 3 gun is 6 times as hard as USPSA, so maybe you don't

    I share my opinion of his shooting skills based on what I’ve seen him teach to others and videos I’ve watched as well

    After seeing the video of his interaction with a woman who I guess was 18, and who he allegedly worked with starting when she was underage, and who was also an employee or contractor; I don’t see how he continues to stay in business in California in the entertainment industry. Regardless of her consent, or lack of concern over the issue, his coaching her as a child and talking this way to her when she was a subordinate would end your career in most occupations.

    Look at the problems James Franco has encountered with allegations from women older than this young lady. There are more serious allegations with Franco but there’s no video of Franco’s actions.

    Butler’s former social media manager must have been pretty upset to release this timed with Shot. Probably no big deal in the long run in the shooting community, nobody will refuse to buy Glock geegaws from him, but studios may view him as a liability. The inappropriate racial comments about an African American actor he was hired to train are also kryptonite.

    I too have squadded [on one occasion] with Taran, and he’s without a doubt one of the best action shooters in the world.

    But that doesn’t excuse this type of behavior.

    well ...... this thread is cooked.
    Glad I was IBTL

    Very disappointed in the overt glee some of you have shown.

    I hope the individual who stole private property and released it with the malicious intent to injure two individuals and a thriving business is jailed and sued for damages.

    Taran [and his company] will suffer major financial consequences because of this.

    Will he be able to stay above water once this plays out?

    Only time will tell.

    ^^^^ Notice Keanu's hands? He's aware that he needs to protect his brand.

    Yeah you think he’s going to sue someone and have to testify under oath about hiring a girl just out of high school and asking to film down her pants? Regardless of the invasion of privacy once this stuff is out it doesn’t matter how many bridges you built. I’m sure the police won’t be interested either.
