Alec Baldwin���s ���Rust��� Co Star Jensen Ackles Spoke About Gun Training Days Before Tragedy

Alec Baldwin’s Rust co-star Jensen Ackles spoke about the gun training he received for the film just days before the set was rocked by a fatal shooting.

Baldwin was filming the Western movie in New Mexico when he discharged a prop gun, killing director of photography Halyna Hutchins and wounding director Joel Souza.

The weekend prior, Ackles had described how he’d been taught to handle his firearm on the Rust set at a convention for his hit show Supernatural in Denver.

“I’ve got a 6am call tomorrow to have a big shoot-out. They had me pick my gun … The armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘A little,’” Ackles told fans in a u">>video posted to YouTube.

“She was like, ‘This is how you load it, check it’s safe. Do you want it hip-drawn or cross-drawn? I’ll just put some blanks in there and just fire a couple of rounds towards the hill … Just make sure you pull the hammer all the way back and aim at your target.’”

It wasn’t immediately clear if the armorer Ackles referred to is the same one who is presumed to have given the prop gun to Baldwin prior to Thursday’s shooting.

A witness to the shooting told u">>Showbiz411 Baldwin fired a single shot that passed through Ms Hutchins’ body and went on to hit Mr Souza in the clavicle.
