People like us are usually the ones who appreciate firearms the most – whether we’re using them for professional or recreational purposes, those of us here at Tactical Distributors share a mutual love for all things gun-related. But what might come as a surprise is that many of your favorite celebrities are also tactical gear enthusiasts. Not only do these celebrities have very impressive collections of firearms, but they’ve also all expressed their enjoyment of recreational shooting. In this post, we’ll be showcasing four celebrities who share the same love for firearms that we do. Our list includes celebs who work in a variety of professions, from musicians and actors to podcasters and martial artists. Just trust us when we say that these guys have great taste!
  1. Post Malone
    Our first celebrity firearm enthusiast is Post Malone, an American rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer. He’s most known for his genre-bending music, since he’s created his own unique sound by combining hip-hop, R&B, pop, and trap music characteristics. Post Malone has a huge arsenal of firearms, with his collection including a wide variety of firearms for various purposes. Post Malone’s collection includes an M14 (the gun Navy SEALs use), a Walther PPK (James Bond’s gun), a .44 Desert Eagle hand cannon, and two gold-plated Glocks. One of his favorite firearms is his Cobalt AR-15, which is modified to pass California regulations. Other notable additions are his pump-action Mossberg shotgun – which he purchased for self-defense purposes – and a Glock 19. This is only a small look into Post Malone’s impressive arsenal!

  2. Joe Rogan
    This next celebrity is pretty vocal about his love for firearms, and that’s the mega podcaster, Joe Rogan. Originally a stand-up comedian in the 80s and 90s, Rogan went on to work in sitcoms and television shows before becoming the popular podcaster he is today. Many years spent working hard have provided him with a luxurious life, and he spends a portion of his multi-million dollar fortune on his prized collection of firearms. Rogan’s firearm collection is worth thousands of dollars, and you can usually see some of his favorites on display in the background of his podcast segments. One of the guns in his collection is an FN 509 Compact, which costs upwards of $1,000 in itself. The celeb frequently speaks to his podcast guests about gun rights and has even been gifted firearms on his show, so it’s no surprise that he’s a firearm enthusiast.

  3. Chris Pratt
    Actor Chris Pratt is no stranger to the world of firearms, as he’s known for his countless gunfight scenes on the big screen, specifically in his roles in the sci-fi film “Guardians of the Galaxy” and the hit new Amazon Prime series “The Terminal List.” He’s spent countless hours in training in preparation for wielding a gun in character and has often been praised for the impressive tactical skills that he’s developed over time. But off-screen, Pratt is open about his love for firearms – he’s shared that he has an impressive arsenal of around 30-40 guns that make up his private collection. In his personal life, Pratt mostly uses his firearms for predator hunting purposes, stating that he’s often hunting different varmints and coyotes on farms.

  4. Jon Jones
    The last celebrity firearm enthusiast we’d like to mention is Jon Jones, an American mixed martial artist who is currently signed to the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Not only that, but he’s also the current UFC Heavyweight Champion! Outside of the ring, Jones is known for his love of firearms – he appreciates the way they’re able to be customized and explains that they’re one of his only hobbies that he makes time for in his busy schedule. He owns a variety of assault rifles, but not for protection. Instead, he shares that using firearms is another outlet for his competitive and creative nature. Working with and customizing the firearms allows him to keep his brain sharp, as he’s always brainstorming and planning. This is a unique approach to the firearm conversation, and we appreciate how Jones shows another side to gun ownership.
