The Orion Flare Gun is a flare gun intended for civilian signaling in emergencies that is sold by Orion Safety Products. It uses 12 gauge flares, which lack the power to penetrate flesh and can be fired from a standard 12 gauge shotgun. An Orion Flare Gun is incapable of chambering or firing standard 12 gauge ammo. While reduced length 12 gauge shells can be chambered in an Orion Flare Gun, doing so merely renders the flare gun a trigger accuated grenade since the plastic barrel is totally incapable of handling the pressures of real ammo. The "Sight & Sound Bear Deterrent" and "Pest Scare Safety Launcher" are alternate color variations that use blank cartridges to produce muzzle flash and sound for animal deterrence.

The Orion Flare Gun and variants can be seen in the following films, television series, video games, and anime used by the following actors:
