It's my understanding that a prop gun is a real gun that's supposed to be loaded with blanks. Blanks are made up of real brass cases, real primers, real gun powder & instead of a bullet, wadded-up paper, wax, or some other material to hold the powder in the case. When the material leaves the barrel, it spreads out & won't cause injury at a safe distance, but at the guns muzzle, the pressure is enough to cause injury or death. The only way a blank can cause injury or death is if the gun is held very close to someone when fired - as in this case:That's bizarre. How do you shoot and kill someone with a "prop gun?" Did someone switch out the prop gun for a real gun?
Don't know what happened here yet.How does a prop gun kill one and injure another?

I must say I would be a mess if I had done something like this. I really feel for those involved. Even Alex and I know he has a temper. What tragedy.

Different scenario in Brandon Lee's case involving improperly-loaded "Homemade" blanks.
If that was the case, an important rule was violated - having real ammo in the vicinity of a firearm that was intended to be loaded with blanks.One article out today said that somebody mistakenly put real bullets in the "prop gun" instead of blanks. Ooops.
