How To Safely Fire a Front Firing Blank Gun

How To Safely Fire a Front Firing Blank Gun

Front firing blank guns have become popular in recent years, as they provide a realistic experience with many of the features of a real gun. However, although blank guns are not capable of firing out a bullet, they are still incredibly dangerous and should be used with caution. In this blog, we will go over the steps involved in properly and safely using a front firing blank gun.

The Basics

There are several key points to keep in mind when using a front firing blank gun. First, it should always be assumed that the gun is loaded, even if it is not. It is also important to keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to fire, as accidental discharge can occur with blank guns. The barrel should also be checked for obstructions before firing, as debris or other blockage may lead to a dangerous situation.


When firing a front firing blank gun, it is important to take proper safety precautions. Ear protection should be worn, as the sound of the blast is still very loud. Eye protection should also be worn, as the discharge of the gun can result in hot gas or particles being released. 

Additionally, it is important to keep the gun pointed away from any people or objects, as a loose material  from a blank round  or hot gasses may still vent from the barrel and this could cause injury and even death. Furthermore, the user should be aware of any background objects, as they may absorb the hot particles released, leading to a fire hazard.


Regular maintenance should be performed on blank guns to ensure their proper functioning. The barrel should be thoroughly cleaned to remove any debris that may have built up from previous use. Additionally, the gun should be lubricated to prevent it from rusting or seizing up. The magazine should also be inspected to make sure it is properly feeding blank rounds.

Keep Safety In Mind

By following the steps outlined above, you can ensure that you are using the gun in the safest way possible. Always remember the basics of gun safety, and take the necessary safety precautions to ensure that you and those around you remain safe.
