Movies from comedy to drama to your favorite Hollyweird Star.

Not a dumb question at all

I think the answer is two fold. It's not easy to mimic gun action without that kind of explosive force. Could it be done? I think it could. But I think we are talking about a pretty expensive prop.Not just for the internal mechanisms but for the authentic exterior as well. And there are a lot of different kinds of guns needed for movies.

That leads to the second issue. The market. Given the cost of building such a gun how many would such a prop maker be able to sell?

Not a dumb question and IMO a good idea. Might not be a good business venture though. But...there might be a future for it. Essentially that was the idea behind blanks. But that was a relatively cheap and fast solution.
