RE: Not a dumb question at all

they didn't. What happened was the armorer left the guns unattended. Members of the crew took the guns, went out in the desert and shot cans with live rounds. They returned the guns and left a live round in the one gun. The armorer was not present when the scene was being shot. The first AD who is a notorious A-hole brazenly grabbed the gun in haste to move things along, claimed it was cold without checking and... you know the rest.

It was a perfect storm of idiocy, incompetence and arogance. BUT a fake gun that simulates the action of a real gun would have prevented this from the start.

Definitely not a dumb question. I suspect there may be a push to eliminate the use of any actual guns on movie sets.
