I HAVE NOT SEEN FIREARMS EVER CLEARED AND HANDLED PROPERLY ON SET…. EVER.

So Im going to keep it real regarding what needs to happen with set procedures regarding fireams.

It starts with the Armorer. Unboxing the firearm the Armor MUST clear the firearm regardless of it coming out of its storage container or bag. This is not a visual inspection. This is clearing the firearm with a bore rush and ram rod. This insures no residue or obstructions like a squib is in the barrel.

When handing the firearm over to an actor/stunt performer the firearm should he cleared again with a ram rod.

Ammunition is carried separately from the firearms in a secure container labeled with ammo type. In this case BLANK ROUNDS. The ammo container need to be sealed and time/date stamped.

Ammunition is loaded in front of the actor/stunt performer who sees the loading process. Insuring that said ammo is blank ammunition.

Armor maintains weapon next to the actor/stunt performer and loads said weapon right before filming the scene.

Filming completed the firearm is cleared of the magazine, visual inspection of the barrel and you ram rod the barrel….AGAIN.

Any time that fiream enters and leaves set it has to be cleared visualy and physically… with a ram rod.

Any time a weapon is loaded it has to be loaded in the presence of the Armor, actor/stunt performer as well as any combination of 1AD/stunt coordinator/safety coordinator.

When filming is finished firearm is cleared visually and cleared with a bore brush. Packed and time/date stamped. Unspent Ammunition is visually inspected and time/date stamped.

When the ACTOR/STUNT PERFORMER FINISHES USING THE FIREARM THE ACTOR/STUNT PERFORMER MUST WASH HANDS. Gun powder residue is POISON!!!! Stop rat f**king crafty lunch with poisoned hands.

We do this in the MILITARY. Every time we go to a range that weapon and ammo is checked/inspected 4/5 times over prior to shooting. WHY IN THE HELL IS THE SAME THING NOT BEING DONE IN FILM.

What happened on Rust with Alec Baldwin was not an accident. It was NEGLIGENCE.

People are calling it an accidental discharge. No it was not.

A accidental discharge is mechanical failure of the firearm that causes the firearm to fire without the operator. The weapon failure causes the firearm to fire. This is extremely extremely rare. In 29 years of firearm handling Ive seen it happen ONCE.

A NEGLIGENT DISCHARGE is what happened. NEGLIGENCE with proper firearm/ammunition handling/clearing/inspecting.

I have trained hundreds of soldiers and never had an negligent discharge. WHY? I followed strict firearm procedures.

I will conduct another firearm and tactical handing class later this year.
