I figured Ron Perlman was a shooter :D

2004 Hollywood Celebrity Shoot Heads To Las Vegas Area

Star-studded annual event moves to new venue and continues efforts to preserve shooting and hunting rights for America

LOS ANGELES, CA -- The Hollywood Celebrity Shoot, the largest celebrity charity shooting event in the country, returns for its eighth year with a two-day event October 1st and 2nd. The event, which benefits the Celebrity Youth Sporting Trust, an organization dedicated to firearm education and safety for our youths, will be held for the first time at the Desert Lake Country Club in Boulder City, Nevada.

"We had seven very successful years in the Los Angeles area and we felt that it was time to take our very unique event and its very important messages about education and safety to another key mecca of entertainment, Las Vegas," said event founder John Laughlin. "The Desert Lake Country Club is a first class professional shooting venue and tremendous supporter of our event. Its proximity to Las Vegas made it an ideal site for this year's event.

"The purpose of the Hollywood Celebrity Shoot is to preserve the shooting and hunting traditions of America for our children and generations to come by creating awareness and providing safety and training education," added Laughlin. "Through this event we hope to steer popular public opinion to a better understanding of the positive aspects of responsible firearms use, including recreational shooting."

The Hollywood Celebrity Shoot features more than 100 actors, directors, producers, Hollywood insiders and stars from the professional sports world participating in team trap, sporting clay, handgun and rifle events. What makes the Hollywood Celebrity Shoot such a unique experience is that anyone can participate and compete alongside the celebrities. "You can arrive as a spectator and leave having been a competitor," said Laughlin.

To name a few, Delta Burke, Leslie Easterbrook, Erik Estrada, Thomas Jane, Louise Mandrell, Joe Mantegna, Gerald McRaney, Ron Perlman, Marty Kove, Joe Penny and Lee Purcell are among the more than 60 celebrities already confirmed for this year's event.

Past celebrity participants have included Priscilla Barnes, Dennis Franz, Lou Ferrigno, Erin Gray, Lee Horsley, Geoffrey Lewis, Anne Lockhart, John Milius, Jameson Parker, John Ratzenberger and Robert Stack.

"The 2003 Hollywood Celebrity Shoot attracted a total attendance of more than 1000 spectators and participants hailing from 30 U.S. states and 15 foreign countries," said Laughlin. "That represents a 20 percent increase from 2002 and a more than 50 percent increase from 2001. Those numbers stand as a testament to the strength of this event and the passion people have for its cause on an international level."

Among Laughlin's primary goals when producing the event was to use the proceeds to create and support a youth camp. The Hollywood Celebrity Shoot Kid's Camp offers children ages 7-14 hands-on shooting instruction by certified instructors who focus on teaching them how to safely and productively use firearms to enjoy shooting sports. The camp also exposes children to classes on wildlife management, conservation and safety. In 2003, the camp played host to more than 70 children along with many of their parents. The free camp was held on seven consecutive Sundays leading up to the celebrity event.

"Much like any other activity, we need to cultivate new generations of outdoor sports and shooting enthusiasts to ensure the preservation of the sport," said Laughlin. "The HCS Kid's Camp is an ideal way to teach children the joy of recreational shooting and the responsibilities that go along with it. Our safety and educational programs are geared to do exactly that."

The 2004 Hollywood Celebrity Shoot will also benefit the newly formed Celebrity Youth Sporting Trust, an organization dedicated to firearm education and safety for our youths. The Trust will provide extensive educational programming, an introduction to the shooting sports and the preservation of our shooting and hunting traditions through wildlife management and conservation courses. With its newly established Board of Trustees, the Celebrity Youth Sporting Trust will establish grants to be awarded to existing organizations and begin implementing educational camps nationwide in 2005.

Laughlin has lofty goals for the 2004 installment of the Hollywood Celebrity Shoot. He views it as a pivotal year in the event's long-term growth.

"We've made some amazing strides over the past two years and we plan on using that momentum to take us to a whole new level this year in terms of more sponsors, more celebrities and more spectators," said Laughlin. "In 2003, we estimate that more than 80 million people learned about our event via the 21 magazine articles and 4 television programs that covered us.

"With shooting sports getting international attention via the Summer Olympic Games in Athens, we hope to be the beneficiary of that attention when our event takes center stage in October. Moving the event to a post-Olympic time period and relocating it to Las Vegas were moves that we feel will help us to hit even bigger numbers in 2004."

They should have a stage where they use "assault weapons".

July 2, 2004, 01:36 PM
I wonder if we could get Arnie to try AR-15s akimbo? I think even he would have a hard time holding those up while firing... or even aiming....

July 2, 2004, 01:40 PM
Cool is right.
This has to raise some hairs on the back of some folks neck.

I wonder if Mr. Barrett will show up and let folks use a .50 ? :D

July 2, 2004, 02:01 PM
Oh, I misunderstood the title. The celebrities are doing the shooting.:evil:
Well that's good too. Hopefully it helps squelch gun-fears and at least some anti-gun rhetoric there in Hollywood.

July 2, 2004, 02:08 PM
Thought it was open season on celebrities? :D LOL!

Sorry... I should have been more descriptive. ;)

July 2, 2004, 02:09 PM
:D LOL! Burt Reynolds!

That sounds pretty cool. What would be great is live event coverage, like the PGA. "Over to the trap field, where Erik Estrada is setting up..." :)

OTOH, what other reasons could there be for moving the event outside LA? :scrutiny:

July 2, 2004, 03:10 PM
Not to slight the event, but it would be nice to see a few newer/bigger names in there. A Brad Pitt or Charlize Theron (only picked because she's my favorite ;) ) would help things a bit.

Harrison Ford shoots but doesn't want that to get out. Thanks Harry. What good does that do the RKBA??? Stand up a bit.

July 2, 2004, 03:20 PM
Well, it's good to know who the cool celebs are. Ron Perlman and John Milius have always kicked major @ss.

I wonder if we could get Arnie to try AR-15s akimbo?

Too bad he's an anti.

or Charlize Theron (only picked because she's my favorite ) would help things a bit.

I believe she's an anti too. :(

Ron Perlman also played in the movie Blade2...He plays a character that is a neonazi...Yup, you read that right...a 6'4" Jew playing a Nazi!:D

Totally dig the guy, and I cant wait for Hellboy2...Makes my heart sing that he is on our side..

July 2, 2004, 04:58 PM
"City of the Lost Children" is my favorite Perlman movie. Very cool movie!

I noticed that Tom Selleck's name was absent from the list.

July 2, 2004, 05:47 PM
This is mostly a Sporting Clays (shotgun) event. It cost's $500 to shoot in it. I'll post some pictures when I get back from it.

July 2, 2004, 06:43 PM
How many of these celebrities use their fame to support and protect our gunrights?

Very few according to the list.

July 2, 2004, 07:46 PM
Past celebrity participants have included Priscilla Barnes, Dennis Franz, Lou Ferrigno, Erin Gray, Lee Horsley, Geoffrey Lewis, Anne Lockhart, John Milius, Jameson Parker, John Ratzenberger and Robert Stack.

Anne Lockhart!!!...from Battlestar Galactica. I used to have a crush on her.

July 3, 2004, 12:39 AM
How about Laura Prepon? I hear she's a shooter, and damn attractive to boot.

Anyone got a picture of her with her Mini-14?

July 3, 2004, 12:54 AM
I don't understand the need for posting a long list of movies an actor was in, but Robert Stack of 'The Untouchables' TV fame was an Olympic class trap shooter long before he was an actor.
feedthehogs, has a point. However, there are some exceptions. Jameson Parker, Gerald McRaney and Louise Mandrell and her sisters are all well known as shooters. Parker and Mandrell have both hosted shooting shows.

hellboy is what i recognized the name from. thanks.

I saw an interview with Charlize Theron when she broke down in tears. She was asked about the night she watched her mother shoot her father. She insists her mother acted in self-defense, but admits for years she lied about dad's death. When she was 15, her father attacked her mother, and her mother shot her father in self-defense. Her father died, and her mother was not charged in the incident. She is fluent in Afrikaans and from South Africa. Her father was french, her mother German. Theron is an Afrikaans name and is pronounced Te-ron, as apposed to Ther-on. She loves to eat steak, gamble and smoke Marboros.

Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.

July 3, 2004, 02:33 PM
Somehow, I always figured Ron Perlman was a shooter. He just seemed too cool not to be:D.

Whats really surprising for me is that Thomas Jane is a shooter. For those not in the know, he played The Punisher in the new movie. From all the interviews I have seen him do he seemed like a cool, level headed guy; I just never really pictured him as pro-RKBA. Just makes me like him even more I guess.

Sorry Sunray , just trying to help.:o

July 3, 2004, 04:41 PM
Huh, I hadn't known any of that beside that she was from South Africa. Thanks for the info.

I just thought she was purdy ;)


July 3, 2004, 05:18 PM
Anyone remember Eric in those tight outfits on "Buck Rogers"? Whooooo

July 3, 2004, 05:40 PM
You might want to check your spelling of Erin! and yes, I do remember those pants!

July 3, 2004, 07:04 PM
bigger celebs required. I probably recognized 3 of those names. And more 'action/practical' events...sporting clays is foofy.
