September 2014 – Somerset West Cape Town
This was officially the first time I got to handle and fire a gun. Milspec Armoury offered a day course on how to handle firearms on set. They’ve worked on some of the top films and series shot in South Africa – Lance Peters was an amazing instructor and the team was great to work with.

So I definitely jumped onto this oppotunity! The day was filled with arming and disarming various guns, the correct way to handle them on set and how to move with them. I got to fire some blanks as well as live rounds -really have so much respect for guns after this experience.
Milspec offer various different courses and this was just the introductory one, but it definitely got me interested in guns and left me wanting more!
