|Me (Naibe Reynoso) Shooting a real Gun!|
|Zoe Saldana shooting a machine gun in "Colombiana"|
In the new movie "Colombiana" out in theatres today, Latina actress, Zoe Saldana plays a cold-blooded assassin bent on avenging the murder of her parents. As part of the movies promotion, a select group of Journalists were invited to the Burro Canyon Shooting Range in Azusa so we could learn safety and shooting instruction.
In short, I was going to learn how to shoot a real gun including a .22 magnum, 9 mm revolver, .44 magnum, and even a Glock!
I have to admit, at first I was a little scared. What if I misfired? What if I accidentally shot off my big toe because everyone who knows me, knows Im a big klutz. I decided leave to "bite the proverbial bullet", face the adrenaline rushing through my veins and muster up the courage to do it. Just like anything in life, my first round of shots were lousy. I barely even hit the Orange Circle! But as the lesson progressed and I got more comfortable with the guns and with a little more practice, I was actually shooting pretty good. I even got a bullseye!
Move over Schwarzenegger there's a new Action Hero in town, and her name is Zoe Saldana. And wait, before I shot my very last bullet, and in the spirit of Movies, I couldn't resist, and said out loud, "Say Hello to my little friend" ... Tony Montana "Scarface"
