These three air squibs look very similar, but they create drastically different effects. The first unit is a classic air squib, safely simulating a 9 mm bloody hit in an actor. The second unit gives an 18 mm diameter hit on the actor – and the final, third one, simulated six simultaneous bullet hit effects (like an “execution”) in the garments of the actor. All units are radio-controlled, making it easier for the actor to focus on acting, and helping to act surprised after the hit, and not before.
