It seems almost impossible that Leo Firebrand's pistol creation is actually made out of paper. It looks so realistic that no one would be ridiculed if they ducked for cover if Leo Firebrand himself decided to brandish it in public. Of course, he would probably be apprehended by police for causing a disturbance to peace.
That said, Leo Firebrand's paper pistol is a replica of Malcolm Reynolds' gun. Clearly, the founder of Firebrand Creations is a big fan of the sci-fi TV show 'Firefly' and the movie 'Serenity.'
To make this gun, Leo Firebrand had to stretch dampened paper over carved floral foam to get the shape. From there, he painted it to give it a really realistic look.
