NOIR: Season 4 Episode 3

posted on October 13, 2015

The newest episode of NOIR takes us from a frightening (but funny) vision of the future to the exciting world of 3-gun, with plenty of hard-hitting dialogue along the way—Colion talks Department of Justice phone calls with Richard Ryan of FullMag Studios and delves into New Zealand’s gun regulations. We took a look at the episode and asked him a few questions that were on our minds. 

A1F Daily: You have a new, “distinguished” look in the intro to this episode. Did this translate into extra time in makeup before shoots?

Colion Noir: I think distinguished is a bit of an overstatement. I like to say, a little polished. I don’t spend any time in makeup unless a particular sketch calls for it, but that’s only happened once this season—and let’s just say it was a lot of makeup. 

A1F: How did your debate over beers with David (about guns in New Zealand versus guns in the U.S.) come about?

CN: Ironically, my debate with David resulted from a conversation he and I began having over pizza during a test shoot. We just started talking guns and we disagreed about quite a bit but agreed on some. We have a mutual respect for each other’s opinions, and no fear stating our positions while still being friendly. Several more conversations followed that first one, and I quickly realized he needed to be on the show. So we met up for drinks and recorded it. 

A1F: You have more of a focus on 3-gun in this episode. Do you have any recommendations for readers looking to break into the sport—say, decent shooters without much competitive experience?​

CN: YouTube is an underappreciated resource for learning about 3-gun. There are tons of videos providing information for beginners. 3-gun can become a money pit if you let it, so start with what you have and work your way up over time. A quick Google search can also show you local matches in your area.  

Episode 3 is available online over at NRA News. Watch it in its entirety here.

This is What Empowering Women Really Looks Like

With gun ownership on the rise throughout the nation, women are one huge demographic that has seen noticeable growth in this area. Such is why one NRA firearms instructor built a self-defense training company that caters exclusively to women.

When a circuit court judge imposed a permanent injunction against Oregon’s anti-freedom measure last week, it was just the latest skirmish in a year-long, up-and-down battle against the sweeping, poorly conceived law.
