Scott Rasmussen has been working as an armorer since the 1980s.

He has worked with Hollywood stars like Sam Elliot and John Travolta.

He was reportedly asked to work on the Western film “Rust.”

However, he had safety concerns after reading the script.

They wanted him to be both the armorer and the prop master.

Given the amount of guns on set, he said he wanted to only focus on armorer duties.

Production reportedly said that was okay, but then he never heard back.

Instead, they hired Hannah Gutierrez-Reed to be both armorer and prop master.

“They decided to save a few pennies here and there and we, unfortunately, had a bad accident happen,” he said.
