Has anyone reached out to Chris/Bunni yet? If not, I'm happy to do so. I haven't talked to Chris in a while (years now), but I know he's still around.

For what it's worth, the same thing happened...

That's really going to depend on the production, and how much the director and/or the actors care about proper firearms training. On most big-budget productions nowadays, though, the armorers just...
