Green Beret and friend of the program Terry Schappert dropped by CBS Sports Radio’s Gio and Jones on Friday to discuss his new show, Hollywood Weapons: Fact or Fiction?
“It’s about TV and film and guns,” Schappert said. “This one is perfect because it’s a boy’s dream. I get to be an actor, I get to dress up and act like Clint Eastwood, and then I get to fire those guns, shoot those guns, the real-period guns (that people used). So I get to do that.”
In each episode, Schappert – the author of A Guide to Improvised Weaponry: How to Protect Yourself with WHATEVER You’ve Got – takes a weapon that was used in a TV show or movie and tests it in real-world conditions.
“It’s been a lot of fun,” Schappert said. “If you’re a movie geek, you’ll dig this show. If you’re a gun person, you’ll dig it. If you like to see Terry Schappert be an idiot – and who doesn’t – you’ll like this show.”
The series airs on Outdoor Channel on Mondays at 9 p.m. ET.
