Clint Eastwood and 10,000 guns in Cobb County

Clint Eastwood is in Atlanta directing “The 15:17 to Paris,” about the Americans who thwarted a terrorist attack on a train bound for Paris in 2015. It’s based on the nonfiction book by the same title by Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos and Spencer Stone.

The three Americans — a college student and two servicemen —  were later awarded the French Legion of Honor medal for their heroics, the AJC reported at the time. [See photos from the ceremony here]

When he had a minute of free time Eastwood stopped in Adventure Outdoors, an 80,000 square foot Smyrna store with 10,000 guns on display, according to its site. Check out the great photo he posed for!
