Glock already makes training pistols that can not fire live ammo. The slide will cycle creating a ‘real’ appearance and feel. Would have to add sound in post. I’m suprised these aren’t used. eu.glock.com/en/world-of-glo…

Not at all. She’s explaining the mechanics of what happened with pictures and facts. Same as the newspapers.

Any explanation as to why a prop gun was used towards directors, not another actor?

Word is that the gun was used to hunt and the person who had it left a round in the chamber.

Hunt what? Some sob killing things in his spare time? Again, hunt what? Somebody's dog? There are homes approx 3 miles from that white gate they're showing (the entrance to the "movie set" part of the ranch.
