The Society of American Fight Directors is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting safety and fostering excellence in the art of directing staged combat/theatrical violence.

Armor and helmets are always difficult to find, and when made of metal are prohibitively expensive. Take a look at Costume Armour Inc for an excellent selection of all types of armor made of tough Kydex [better than Vacuform]. Both sales and rentals.
Theatre House They carry a bunch of really inexpensive plastic swords and wooden guns as well as a few steel swords and blank guns. They are not realistic or fight-worthy weapons by any stretch, but if you just need to get some items up there at the very lowest sales price, this is the way to go.
For movie-quality modern firearms, try calling Centre Firearms in New York (212 / 244-4040) or Independent Studio Services (818 / 951-5600) in California. They both carry wonderful items, but remember that real guns, even if made to fire only blanks or even if non-firing, must still go through all federal and state waiting periods and paperwork. They are also very expensive.
Looking for blanks that we don't carry? Try Cheaper than Dirt. They carry a wide assortment.
