Hollywood hardman Vinnie Jones is teaching Madonna to shoot.
The footballer turned actor appeared in many scenes in Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels (1998) bearing firearms.
He is now instructing Madonna, the wife of Lock Stock director Guy Ritchie, in the art of shooting.
Vinnie is using his real life skills to pass on tips to the superstar at her UK country home.
He told The Sun: "I've been giving her regular lessons.
She wants to get good and I'm helping her out.
"She's very good as she is actually."
Madonna's stately home, Ashcombe House, set on the beautiful Wiltshire-Dorset border cost her £9m.
She uses it every weekend to perfect her hunting skills.
Madonna has splashed out £20,000 on two top-of-the-range Purdey shotguns.
