"Rocketshoes!... As I said, he's the fastest thing I've ever seen, but he's humble - not an ass- he has no attitude, and we got along brilliantly.
- Actor Josh Brolin
HOLLYWOOD GUN COACH
There are few in the business of making poetry with gun handling and fewer who can teach it well. The way an actor or actress handles a gun is an important extension of his or her character and says volumes. 44 year old Joey Dillon has been handling guns for 30 years, (many of those years as a stage performer), has won three world championships in the field of cowboy "gunslinging," (yes there are actual competitions for this), and has combined 10,000 hours of practice with a God given talent to bring his skill to a level unrivaled in the industry. Safety is paramount and taught first. Beyond that the sky is the limit. A variety of quick draw methods, holstering methods, fancy spins, juggles, trick shooting, etc. etc. is all available to teach. These tricks can be incorporated with most any gun, even modern firearms. Rifle tricks are available as well as tomahawk throwing and some trick roping. Beyond these arts Joey builds props, modifies guns, and has been called on as a technical advisor, historian, and armorer. Please see RESUME.
Besides the trick and entertaining ways to use weapons, basic understanding and basic firing can be offered with all modern firearms for all normal applications and films.
