Well, I found a little bit using the search feature, but "gun" is one of those three letter words it doesn't recognize, and "fire" "shot" and "shoot" didn't come up with much. So I created this thread with the words "gunshot" and "gunfire" as one word for the search feature. For our musical this fall, there is a scene where there are 8-10 gunshots. What do you use to make this noise? The director wants the noise to come from stage - not from the sound system. Obviously, a gun is a safety no-no, they are thinking a starter pistol, but even this I personally am leery of. We've also thought about cap gun caps and a hammer, as six year olds do this. What is the best sounding (and safest) way to do a gunshot?
