Sabre designs movie gun familiarisation courses for agencies, film schools and productions that will deal with the basics of 'Theatrical Ordnance'.


A course will help actors to better understand Theatrical Ordnance, more credibly handle movie guns and appear more stage and screen accurate for their characters with a range of commonly used movie guns.

NOTE: This is not a scheduled public course, these are run on demand for organised groups from film schools, agencies or productions.

NOTE: Courses are for on-set / stage use of Theatrical Ordnance and not live fire weapons training.
