Die Water! Die!

Here’s a YouTube clip featuring the same Hatsan shotgun used by Miles “the Crazy Texan” Slade (Ian Somerhalder) in The Tournament (reviewed by our own Robert Fure). Quick aside: doesn’t ANYONE shoulder this bad boy (Die Forest! Die!). Actually, it may not be the exact same gun (Robert?). Hatsan Arms Company makes 14 Escort semi-auto models and 10 pump-action versions. Another interesting connection. If I’m not mistaken, ArmaLite CEO Mark Westrom was checking out Hatsan for a pal interested in becoming their U.S. distributor when Westrom came across the Sarsilmaz Silah Sanayi gun factory in Istambul. Which led to Westrom’s decision to re-engineer and import the AR 24. Small world.
