the air-squib
The air-squib is a portable unit that will simulate a bloody ”hit” in the clothes of an actor. No explosives are used - only air and batteries. Safe!

The unit is radio controlled and is easily set off by a technician by simply pushing a button.

The result looks very convincing and is suitable for theatre, film and television...

The Air Squib, is a pneumatic squib or air powered bullet hit simulator that is mainly used for film, television or theatre productions to create the illusion of an actor being hit by a bullet. It is intended to be used behind clothing - and will not work on bare skin.

The Air Squib consists of three parts - the radio control transmitter, the portable, radio-controlled air ejector - hidden on the belt, or similar, and the special nozzle - placed on the inside of the shirt, where you want the  bloody hit to appear.
