If the object that is created is of the type ammo, then it will created on all clients (tested only on VBS2).

Indeed the type of Ammo is transfered to ALL clients, but apparently also the muzzle effects (firing sound, light, etc.); this includes muzzles from Horns (Truck or Car Horn, Bicycle bells, etc.) as well as any other weapon. Tested on Arma 1 - Arma 2 OA (latest patch).
