Getting Gun Props

Of all the props you may need to get your hands on to do a productions, guns are probably one of the most difficult to get for several reasons.  First, real guns are expensive and you shouldn’t use them because they are also unsafe.  Next, very realistic replicas that shoot actual blanks are expensive, probably too expensive for most low budget productions, and finally, many prop or toy guns look too fake to use however they are also the cheapest.  So as the video above explains, you can find some good looking toy/prop/replica guns on Amazon, paint and modify them so they look real and digitally add the muzzle flash and sound effects you need to make the scenes look real (enough).
