What Got You There with Sean DeLaney

Aug 28, 2017

Today on What Got You There Sean talks with Taran Butler. Taran  is an American sport shooter and world champion born in California. Growing up Taran was encouraged by his mother to learn shooting and began his shooting career in 1994 after winning a bowling pin match at a local indoor range in the Los Angeles Valley where his love for the sport began. He went on to become the first Glock Grand Master shooter in the history of the sport and has won many other competitions and titles in his career.

In 2011, Butler appeared as a trainer in the second and third season of History Channel’s marksmen competition show, Top Shot. Butler is one of the handful of shooters that appears on Shooting USA's Impossible Shots Butler has also served as a technical adviser on films like Michael Mann’s Public Enemies. Butler currently runs Taran Tactical Innovations. Butler occasionally shoots with wrestler Stone Cold Steve Austin, film director James Cameron and actors Johnny Depp and Keanu Reeves.

Buckle your seat belts because Taran doesn’t hold anything back in this episode. He tells about the crazy competitions he’s won, friends he’s made a long the way and what it’s like working with A listers in Hollywood. Taran uses a ton of profanity so if you have kids in the car you may want to cover their ears.
