I've also read covid is to blame, due to restrictions on the number of people allowed on set or in the armory at one time. They claim that is why the guns were left unsupervised outside of the armory on a cart. This NY Post article is one of the more detailed I've seen. It's also where my question in another thread of what Baldwin would have done if the script called for him to put the gun to his temple and pull the trigger came from.
Multiple sources now confirm the reports you saw.
The armorer and AD cleared the gun and it was handed to Baldwin for staging/blocking...but the cast/crew then broke for lunch and some crew members WENT PLINKING WITH THE GUNS!
Armorer, AD, and Baldwin obviously didn't clear the gun prior to resuming things, and Baldwin shot the girl.
WTS my Smith & Wesson M&P 2.0 Compact 9mm Semi-Automatic Pistol. Has 2 NJ compliant 10 round magazines. Pistol is in like new condition (see photos). Bought new right before the pandemic and never got to shoot it...now moving to NYC so need to move it. Will also include a pistol wire lock. Asking $350, buyer pays FFL fees. Asking to meet and sell it by this Friday 10/26
Must have matching FID and photo ID. Looking to go through Long Shot Pistol and Rifle FFL in Secaucus, but open to other nearby FFLs.
Payment MUST be made prior to or at deposit of gun with FFL.
Is the Black Aces Tactical S Max NJ legal with the birds head grip on it? Barrel is 18.5" but not sure what the OAL is with the birds head grip. It's 39" with the stock. Their Pro S with 14" barrel (non-nfa not a shotgun) is 26.5", so guessing it would be 31" OAL.
