Looking for prop guns that are in or can ship to Canada.

Hey Guys,

I'm new to the forum. I'm a small time filmmaker in Toronto, Canada and need some help finding some blank firing or prop guns for sale, That can ship or is in Canada. I've checked into all rental companies and the rentals cost about 100 per gun a week with a minimum of a week rental. I'm looking for anything prop gun related (Leaning towards a Beretta Chrome) but anything will do.

Thanks,

Just be careful if you do find them: even blank-firers can be dangerous... particularly when you hand them to actors :).

I remember one actor on a shoot I worked on was rather glad that he only suffered a little singing when he stuffed a loaded blank-firing gun down the waistband of his pants with his finger still on the trigger...

I'm looking for the same thing, and I'm in Toronto, too. Maybe we could help each other out somehow.

There is a great company called "airsoft" which makes very realistic looking gas powered gun which shoot BB's, and have realistic recoil.

They are at:
http://www.airsoftadventure.co.uk

But, unfortunately, they wont ship to Canada. You have to buy them second hand through ebay.

I also found this link to an arms rental place in TO
www.moviearms.com

But their website isn't up yet.

Where did you get a 100 per gun per week quote from??
Yeah, chrome berettas are cool. This one is VERY cool.

Perhaps we can share info.

Send me your email or a website link so we can keep in touch.

I would like to reiterate concerns made in the second post. Make sure you have a arms master that has a great respect and knowledge of weapons. Even if you are using air guns, they are still very dangerous.

Put one person in charge and make sure they check the guns after every single shot. Barrels, breaches, safetys, etc. Everything should be checked and cleared after every single shot.

"Real" prop guns have killed numerous actors, and only because the weapons master was not diligent in his duties. Airsoft guns are still very dangerous (I know being on the receiving end of them many times playing games.), and even though death is a small possibility, it's still very easy to be maimed permanently by them.

Yeah, true: even airsoft guns can cause permanent damage to eyes or other sensitive parts of the body.

Also, if you let the actors look after the guns they're using they have a tendency to go wandering around the location with a realistic-looking gun in their hand in order to 'get into character'. Not a good idea when someone sees them and call the police.

So, yeah, better to be safe than sorry and have someone you can trust in charge of the guns any time you're not actively shooting.
 
Hey guys,
