Re: Safety!

I would guess that the insurance industry, if it's involved to any great extent on film production (you'd think so, but..), will have a strong say-so going forward.  In the Canadian Armed Forces, my only range of experience, we don't hand anyone a weapon unless the weapon is 'safe'.  By that, no magazine on the weapon if it bears one, and the action is held back to the rear with a safety detent.  This shows the recipient that the weapon has been thought about in terms of safety by the bearer, and that an accidental discharge is so unlikely as to be virtually impossible.  From there, the recipient either stores the weapon if that is his aim, or he loads it himself, safely, and points it down range thereafter to prevent harm if it should be accidentally discharged in the now-loaded state.
