Blank firing pistols are hand guns that do not fire anything out of the barrel so are thus useless for target shooting or practice in that extent, but they do operate in EXACTLY the same way as the real thing does This makes them ideal for training in weapon handling techniques, loading and cocking. and when you pull the trigger thay make a really loud bang. This type of firearm is used in training ie how to disarm an armed enemy etc. Blank firing guns are also used for starting races or in filmmaking and re-enactment. None of our Blank Firing Guns can shoot real ammunition and they cannot be made to do so. All of the blank pistols are top or side venting and incorporate permanent barrel formations to block any efforts to tamper with their true function. Do not try to load or fire real ammo. Striving to alter this blank gun to take real ammunition is prohibited in the law. Make sure you and anyone near you wear eye and hearing protection when firing. These are NOT toys, they should be treated as real firearms and as such it must always be ASSUMED that they are loaded. You must NEVER look down the barrel or point the weapon at anyone, if something gets wedged down the barrel EVEN WITH the barrel blocked, if there was any form of hole in the blocking mechanism then it might discharge with enough force to seriously injure someone. also never carry a Blank firing gun in public only carry in a gun slip or case ect.
