This is a myth. There are no 'prop' guns on a movie set. They are real guns, with blank ammunition.

What should be looked at is why a gun on a movie set had live ammo at all. Seems the safest way to do these stunts is to ensure real bullets are never on the set.

With all the techy innovation that has been developed why not use 3D printed weapons? Create the bang bang boom features afterwards.


I think the reason is 'cost'. Special effects are expensive. Bullets are cheap.

It's not so much the special effects with a fire ball, that's easy and cheap to do. Literally paste the same asset on each shot. It's the fact that without blanks, the gun won't cycle or have any kick back, or do... anything. That's really hard to fake via acting or special effects.

You’d think that would be possible in this day and age.

Oh please... with the millions we hear about reported that they make off some movies they can't afford it?

The value of a life cannot be calculated.

Gun safety. You don't need props IF you have the proper respect for the firearm. You get handed a weapon it is still your responsibility to check to see if a round is in the chamber. NEVER point a gun at someone unless you intend to use it. Finger OFF the trigger. Basic stuff.
