Fire away, Spencer Pratt! On Monday, Feb. 18, the Hills villain and his wife, Heidi Montag, showed off their extensive gun collection during the British Channel 5 documentary, Speidi: Scandal, Secrets and Surgery.
"I want to share something with you that you cannot possess in your amazing country," Pratt said, addressing the cameras. "I will let you have a glimpse of the amazing laws in America. You can never have enough guns in your house."
"I like to have Christmas color cartridges," the 29-year-old MTV star added.
Montag, 26, got emotional while holding a huge machine gun. "I love it," she said of her dangerous hobby. "Going shooting is one of my favorite activities and gives me a new sense of self. It makes me feel, like, proud to be an American. I think it's one of the greatest rights to be an American."
The aspiring singer continued, "I didn't feel safe especially with crazed fans out there and stalkers, and if somebody broke into our home, I think this is the only thing that would actually save my life."
The couple's love of weaponry is nothing new, as the reality stars practiced their shooting skills during a photo shoot in L.A. in July 2008. In addition to bringing their own arsenal, Montag and Pratt also rented several weapons, including an M16 semi-automatic rifle, a .44-caliber Ruger revolver and a .45mm-Glock pistol.
