    Sorry to lump two topics into one. Due to recent gun tragedies, I am leary to have even a fake gun in my HH, but I want my guide to take out a zombie before it eats my TOTs, ala the Walking Dead. I will definitey have the orange tip to make sure people know it's fake, and I will post it on our web page, but long story short, I am looking for a cap gun that makes a loud enough pop to seem real-ish.

    Topic 2: Doing a twisted version of Wizard of Oz. I want to add a wind element to go with the tornado theme, but I don't want it to be super loud, and hoping to have a strong current.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Check out B-Air fans, they sell inflatable fans and those are probably the best wind/sound ratio you'll get.

    I'm not touching the gun subject with a fifty foot pole. Lol

    You know, they also use knives and a crossbow on The Walking Dead. Just saying.

    Two years ago we had a scene for our Swamp where one of the "Inbreds" came bursting from behind a curtain yelling about getting off his property - he would then fire his "Gun", we used one of the Pow Sticks from Frightprops and it worked great for a scare...it's loud and makes a nice flash.

    I think if your worried about your guests thinking you have a real gun, maybe post at the beginning that your using "Simulated Gun Fire" or something to that effect.

    Dont do it, even you think its a bad idea. And you are castrating your actor by having the orange tip on it. Find another way.

    Thanks, Guys. Yeah, maybe it's not the best idea.
