On Saturday, February 24th at 7:30 p.m. EST, hosts Larry Zanoff and Terry Schappert kick off the new season of Hollywood Weapons premiering on the Outdoor Channel. The two expert gun handlers use each episode of their show to walk through movie scenes and separate reality from Hollywood legend, dissecting the most popular action movie sequences ever produced.
In the first episode of 2018, Larry and Terry take on two pivotal parts from one of my childhood favorite movies, Quigley Down Under. The first test involves the ‘famous bucket at range’ shot that Quigley used to prove his answer to the ad to shoot dingos in Australia. The second scene tested in this year’s opening act of Hollywood Weapons is the amount of penetration of a .45-110 bullet passing through two men from a large distance away.
The results? You’ll just have to tune in on Saturday to find out.
