I've always stayed away from even being close to this, but since eventually it may become a problem.. is it possible to start a fire just from firing a combustion gun, without the use of accelerants on any of the objects(like grass, cardboard, wood, etc)? I'd just rather be safe than sorry.

you'd have to aim it at something very close to the end or have it laying on the ground when fired for it to catch dead grass on fire. It would probably get blown out at the same time by the wind that comes with the explosion anyways, but maybe not, don't try it. If you aren't shooting something that's on fire, the flames are only right outside the end of your gun for a split second. It'd be really hard, but manageable if you try hard enough.
