Hello all!
how do i get a gun/prop to be unattached from a character and drop to the ground at a particular time in the timeline?...or how do I activate physics on that gun/prop when needed and make this happen in the scene?

Instead of attaching, use "link", you can unlink at the moment you want to drop it.
A bit tricky to make the "drop" look good, make sure to set a keyframe in transform before unlinking.
Then you will have to look how fast your endkey (prop bottom) comes, maybe use "end in a bounce" transition key...
