  •  Blanks Can Still Be Dangerous (0+ / 0-)

    I have a cousin who use to do stage shows at Old Tuscon.  They were taught to never ever even point let alone fire the gun directly at somebody. A blank fired at close range is like a tiny bomb going off and it can cause injury. Everything was carefully staged so that the guns were fired at specifically chosen points. A stunt person was actually injured once when a blank was fired too close to him.
