PROP MASTER (FIREARMS)
CERT. Prop Gun HANDLER/Wrangler
On-Set Prop Gun Usage and safety expert
A Prop Gun Handler/Wrangler is the Prop Master for all Prop Firearms on set. A PGW helps maintain the proper usage, trade craft, compliance and safety on your film or video production set. Small production friendly, required insurance and permit consulting available.
I offer a curated selection of air powered hand gun props, Blank Firing Hand Gun Props and non-firing replicas for use on set, stage and location. I am also licenced to rent any prop guns from any prop house in california. EFP#12-950
A production may not need a functional shot of a gun firing but safety on set is very important when these props are on set.
When safety or other concerns prevent using Blank Firing Guns, Air Powered Prop Guns help with the realism when filming; with their working slides that "blowback" when fired giving the actor a sense of the "shooting" while maintaining an added level of safety. A simple Visual Effect for the muzzle blast and a good sound effect bring these prop guns to life on screen. Ask me for a VFX Pro referral.
