`Macho` Russell Brand buys a gun!

Los Angeles: British comedian Russell Brand has bought a gun for himself after shifting here.

"I`ve been learning to fire guns. My mother said, `Don`t learn to fire guns, Russell`. Well, I`ve learnt and now I`ve got one. I mean, me, own a gun? I shouldn`t really have access to hair gel but I can fire a gun if I need to," thesun.co.uk quoted Brand, 37, as saying.

"To be honest, guns are fun. When I was learning I was firing all over the place, obviously not at people but I was hitting all these targets. I felt like John Wayne," he added.
