#AlexOLoughlin on the Mainland during the week

Alex visited a shooting range in California during the past week. They posted some pictures with him and also added a video of him doing some target shooting and ‘promoting’ their guns.

PS. From the comments it looks like Alex did a good job with his shooting. Just a pity they decided to spel Alex’s surname incorrectly on the video post . 😦

    Hhm. Well. Alex has to pay his bills, too.

    • Not exactly sure what paying Alex’s bills has got to do with this post?
      I am kind of sure Alex paid to be there and do some target shooting, much rather than them paying him to be there.

        That’s what I meant. He advertises weapons.

        • This little clip that they posted on their own Facebook page can hardly been seen as advertising weapons, or that they would paid Alex to do it and say those few words about it – from there my doubt that he would be paying any bills with what he did here …..

        • Lots of businesses use the fact that a celebrity visited their business, as a kind of promotion, without paying that celeb for it. Most of the time the actor would pay to be there, or they might give him that service for free while posting footage of him doing it. But I hardly doubt that he would be paid for doing it – Unless they use that footage in a large scale advertising campaign.
          The way I wrote it (‘promoting’), was not meant to say that Alex made an ad for them, but that he just said a few good words about the weapon. And if you watch the clip you would understand how I meant it.

            It doesn’t matter anyway. His thing.

            • It matters to me, if my words are twisted to make it sound like something that it was not meant to be.
              As a site owner I have a couple of choices about comments that are made here – I can either answer them, ignore them or delete them if I do not agree with it. I chose to answer it this time, because in my opinion it was not the truth and I wanted to correct it. More for clarity to other people who read things here, than to get into an disagreement with you and what you said.

    • What surprises me is not the way you interpreted FOYeur’s (for me crystal clear) words, but that your comment is only issued to judge, without knowing all the facts, the motive behind Alex’s decision to spend some time in a shooting range. You have nothing else to say, really?

      It doesn’t matter if he payed or they gave him a pass for the adverstment. He is on vacation. What man dreams of playing with big guns with a side dish of cleavage?

    I’m impressed with his shooting! Thanks for posting this.

    Maybe the simple answer is that AOL wanted to perfect his shooting stance so he could give more authenticity to the role of Steve McGarrett and these are the people who helped him to do it. (kind of like working with someone to help learn a dialect for a role.)

    Or maybe he had some extra time, just felt like trying it and so he did.

    • For me this is just like somebody who sold Alex a bike or a new car, would put it on their page or site to tell people that some celeb bought something from them. We have had many of these type of posts over the years
      Same with Alex diving with Trident, of training with Egan, or visiting a training centre in LA. These people all post pictures of him (and many celebs) to promote their service or product without paying these people for it. A type of free advertising.
      Nothing different in my opinion to it, just because it is a shooting range – whatever his reason might have been for going there.

    Thank you for the video. Maybe Alex is going to write more SEAL stories for season 10 & wanted to brush up on his shooting to make it more authentic.
    I think the character is a Navy SEAL sniper?

    Wow, Alex is a crack shot! He’s amazing. I’m impressed by his skills. He hit almost every target. He’s fine tuning his already amazing talent that he’s worked diligently to perfect over the past nine years. Alex is a perfectionist who wants to do everything at the highest possible level of skill.

  8. This amazing man can do so many things and do them well! Next we’ll hear he can make the best cheese soufflés this side of the Milky Way or that he has been dancing a charleston with a kangaroo and we’ll find it normal. And no, I’m not idealizing him 🤣🤣🤣!

    I liked seeing him display another skill set.
    He handled himself quite well and I’m not surprised by that. He also looks amazing and I’m not surprised by that either.😘

    Thanks much for the post.😊😊

    Hi Foyeur, I agree with you. Don’t think Alex was endorsing the establishment. As others said, he is a perfectionist, and probably using the practice, for his role on set.
    He looks great. Wish they wouldn’t dye his hair. It was so dark on last night’s episode. So what, if he has grey hair? He should have the beard, on the show!

    Loved Hawaii 5-O since first episode. Have to agree with Sue about the hair color. Nothing wrong with gray hair. Look at Mark Harmon or George Clooney who never dyed once went gray. Just am so happy they are entering 10 season

    I have such admiration for this man. Even when he’s trying to get away from everything for a bit he still has the grace to smile and wave and be kind. I hope he can get away somewhere with the family and just really rest and relax.
