For the blank guns the ammunition that uses are difference of authenticates it. The main difference is that the blank ammunition does not have a metallic projectile, but this does not mean that these ammunition do not inflict injury, although this it will depend on the caliber and the type.
In spite of not have projectile to equal the all ammunition it gives off energy, will be fire, elements given off through the tube by the combustion, sound and and displaced air through the tube reason why at the moment at which we loaded it must maintain the same precautions that if it took the standard ammunition.
