Those blank fire guns you see for sale are guns designed from the ground up as non guns (they're called BFONG) Blank Fire Only Non Gun. It takes a good bit of clever engineering (like having the rounds load in backwards and the front flash is the back flash from a round firing in the wrong direction) in order for ATF to NOT consider those to be guns. Those are NOT usually used in movies. The vast majority of what we use are blank adapted LIVE guns. They're more reliable, they put out the big fireball in front, and they're better made and don't use overly soft metals in their constructions.
