Usually, when it’s a prop on a movie set, the likelihood of it being pointed at cast or crew and accidentally discharging are much higher. So a loaded gun that’s a prop should generally be a big deal. 

By the way, a postwar Polish film used loaded guns on the set and they actually fired real bullets. See:


I enjoyed the film and recommend it, though I like the directors later film Sewer (1957) better.
