So me and a few friends were thinking about making some funny youtube videos. These aren't gun related videos, BTW, just general comedy. One of them would require use of a gun as a prop. I know you can buy guns that are made for this, but as budget would be restrictive, we could always use a real one. Trouble is, it would involve pointing a gun at the other person. But we don't really want to break 2 of the cardinal gun rules about it "always being loaded" and "never point it at anything you don't want to destroy."
Most likely what we'd wind up using would be one of my replica BB guns, unloaded (both BB and CO2 cartridge). So that should be somewhat better than using an unloaded 9mm or such.
But it just got me to thinking about the situation. If I didn't have the replica BB guns, is there anything that a person might do to a real gun to make it more acceptable to use in this type of scenario?
