The Terminal List” author and former Navy SEAL Jack Carr is as good with a gun as he is with a pen.

In a viral video, the tough-guy novelist wearing a dark suit and open collar moves through a gun range, switching firearms and taking out targets with the kind of skill that would make his beloved character James Reece proud.

“Had to stop by TaranTactical on Book Tour to run the course before my event at the Reagan Library,” Carr tweeted on August 1. “I went right from the range to the stage with seconds to spare. Great day!”

Watch the former special forces operator shoot like the characters he writes:

The Simi Valley gun range bill itself as “the Ultimate Weapons & Accessories for Competition, Military, Law Enforcement, and Hollywood.”

Carr spent 20 years in the Navy, going from SEAL sniper to a junior officer who led teams in Iraq and Afghanistan before commanding a Special Operations Task Unit during the drawdown of U.S. forces in Iraq.

Since leaving the military, he has authored five novels, including “The Terminal List,” which was a wildly successful series on Amazon Prime last month and starred Chris Pratt in the role of Reece.

Liberal critics panned “The Terminal List,” with one calling it an “unhinged Right-wing revenge fantasy.” But fans loved it, giving it a 95% average audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.

“Shocked at the harsh reviews from critics,” one viewer wrote on Rotten Tomatoes. “This series was highly enjoyable. Full of twists and suspense and Chris Pratt was great.”

“Chris Pratt is excellent, this is really a different character for him and he plays it so well!” another viewer wrote. “I don’t get why the critics don’t rate this highly, is it because he’s conservative and/or Christian? Their rating is a complete mystery to me because this, to me, is better than the Jack Reacher series, and I LOVED that one too!”

Carr dismissed the critics.

“We did not make THE TERMINAL LIST for film critics,” Carr scoffed in a tweet. “We made it for those in the arena. Enjoy the ride!”
