My question really refers specificaly to stage guns, but i figured why not give it a broad title. We currently have generic long barrel guns that are made of conduit for the barrel, a carved block of wood for the handle part, and some sort of cheep metal to fake a trigger. This has been okay in our auditorium since the audiance is far away and they can't really see how crummy it is. Were wanna use them in a closer proximity space... but obviously these guns will not work. I wonder if anyone here has made some guns that look more realistic? If not, anyone know a good place to buy them? while these are not going to have to be "stage functional" (they dont have to appear to fire), has anyone ever used any that do appear to fire? I have used some that were stage functional for movies, but with the increasing fear of pyro on stage.... i posted in the fake explosian thread the idea of making a gun that expels some rye flour powered by CO2 thoughts?
