I was part of a short film where two character came head to head in a gunfight, they both had their weapons pointed at each other, they both pull the trigger, only to find out that both their guns our out of ammo, it was a dark short film, but we needed to make a handful of gunshot sounds and this is one of them. I cant remember what recorder I used for this, but it was probably recorded with the zoom h4n (possibly with the internal mics, possibly with a AT875r shotgun mic)

This sound effect is part of the filmmakers archive


The archive is my current hobby, I hope to bring a collection of free creative commons sound FX and Music to creators like myself for their own projects. check it out if you need some FX or music for more projects in the future (as a note most of the sound FX in the archive can be found here on free sound, the music of course not so much)

    Really nice, perfect for what I'm doing - used in a shooting scene in sci-fi podcast To The Manor Borne By Robots

    Quite clean and not overly truncated (something that tends to plague allot of sounds in this same vain).

    I'm a bit torn on the reverb though, on one hand it gives the sound more body, on the other it makes it less versatile.

    For the application you used it for however, it's a very good fit.

    Perfect! I intend to use it with credit for my WWII FPS.

    Thank you,
