"Non Guns" are a brand name of prop weapons that are manufactured and rented by Independent Studio Services (ISS) and frequently used for scenes in movies or television shows in which the use of real weapons firing blanks is deemed unsafe for the actors or stuntmen. They are electronically-operated and discharge small explosive squibs that make a flash and produce smoke, but they do not eject shell casings or have any moving parts besides the trigger. The discharge of the squib can be loud or quiet depending on set noise regulations. This makes Non Guns safer and quieter than real weapons firing blanks, which means that they can be used on filming locations with noise ordinances or up close to other actors (which is a real concern with actual blank firing live guns).

While they have many advantages for film crews, most Non Guns bear only a loose resemblance to their live-firing counterparts, and thus stand out as fake to audiences who know what to look for. However, some film directors evidently do not take this in mind, and thus, it is plainly obvious in some movies or TV shows when Non Guns are being used. Some directors even film them up-close. Examples of such productions are seen below.

Note to IMFDB editors: If you see a Non Gun in a movie or TV show, you don't necessarily need to make a separate entry for the Non Gun on that page; it can be included under the entry for the gun it replicates. If a Beretta Non Gun appears in a movie along with its real counterpart, for instance, just include it under the Beretta 92F entry for the page.

The following are some of the Non Guns available from ISS, as well as the films and TV shows in which they have appeared.
