I know how to use the flashes for the actual gun but I want to know how to do another flash. Watch this clip at 3:09 and you'll know what I'm talking about. Can someone tell me how to do that?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Lxk0PiYSqc

It's called dynamic lighting and can be done by simply turning on a strong light below the camera. Does that answer your question?

Yes it answers my question a little. I guess what I ment is how can I do it in Effects Lab?

Its far better not to do it in post, but rather while filming on set. Its easier, more realistic, and faster.
If you want to do it in EffectsLab, you would create a light, position it where you want, probably centered out of frame, and keyframe it to flash. Then you might want to add a mask or two to limit the areas illuminated by the flash to foreground objects.
