I suspect you'd find it very different. Its not just the effect of muzzle flash and smoke, its also the action of the gun. A gun firing 'nothing' would present no recoil, no weight or realism. It'd look terrible in my opinion. A lady has lost her life and that's tragic, but we don't need to overreact, this accident would have been caused by a safefy process breaking down and those responsible I'm sure will have to suffer the consequences.There's no reason why all guns on movies shouldn't be non-firing replicas. With all the special effects available nowadays, surely the impression of a gun firing can be edited in afterwards?
