How PepperBall Systems Work

PepperBall Systems are powered by high-pressure air to launch a frangible ball, which breaks upon impact and releases an extremely effective super irritant called PAVA pepper (Capsaicin II). These systems are contact safe, target accurate within 60 feet, and provide area saturation with PAVA within a 200-foot range.

PepperBall systems are not limited to classic standoff situations, and allows users to apply as many rounds as required to bring individual suspects, multiple suspects, or crowds into compliance. Users can also employ the system to deny access or bring suspects out of hiding, or can quickly load various specialized projectiles to break glass and disperse barricades, mark suspects for later round ups, or apply impact only as required. In this way PepperBall system provide versatility and effectiveness without serious injury to the subjects, while helping to keep users a safe distance from physical confrontation.

Why PepperBall Systems Work

PepperBall systems use Chemnetics technology to deliver a three-pronged, less-lethal response. Specifically, the following affects are combined to effectively achieve suspect compliance.

* Psychological shock:
the surprise from the being "shot"
* Kinetic impact:
PepperBall systems hit with 8-12 foot-pounds of force to stop subjects without causing permanent damage or serious injury.
* Chemical super irritant:
PAVA (capsaicin II) pepper powder causes coughing and burning sensations in the eyes, nose, throat and skin.

Operation of the System

There is more than one model of Pepperball launcher available. It is the users responsibility to familiarize him/ herself with whatever model he has purchased
Generally the arming process involves making sure that the:

* air/ gas cylinder is fully charged
* on / off switch on the air cylinder is in the on position.
* cocking lever has been racked to cock the launcher.
* safety is in the on or off position as required.
* Pepperballs are in the hopper and have unobstructed access into the breech.

Pepperball launcher valves have been modified to deliver higher velocities and must therefore not be used as Paintball markers in the sport of Paintball.

Use of paintballs in a Pepperball launcher can lead to paintball breakages in the launcher (due to increased operating pressures), which increases the potential of the system malfunctioning (old paint and pieces of paintballs gumming up the Launchers working parts). Use of paintballs in a Pepperball launcher will invalidate its warranty.
Tactical applications and limitations.

There are a number of factors a user will need to consider before using a Pepperball system or for that matter any form of defense in response to a potential threat to oneself, property or third party.

For purposes of deciding the intensity / level of your response the suspects body is zoned according to where the least (orange zones) to the most (red zones) possible injury can occur.

Red Zones = Head, eyes, groin, neck or spine
Orange Zones = body trunk, limbs, extremities,

Do not shoot directly for red zones unless the threat to you or a third party is extreme.

Remember that in cold and or raining weather conditions the suspect may be wearing bulky clothing that can lessen the Pepperballs impact and possibly even prevent the Pepperball from breaking open. Be prepared to withdraw or escalate your response if compliance is not immediately apparent.

It is possible to incapacitate a suspect by saturation shooting the area into which he is moving. i.e. he is running towards a door therefore shoot a number of Pepperballs against the wall around the door thereby creating a pepper cloud into which he will run. There will be no direct impact on the suspect. NOTE: be sure to avoid the saturated area yourself.
Benelli Nova (Italy)

Type: pump-action
Gauge: 12
Chamber: 3 1/2 inch (89 mm)
Length: 1025 mm (with 470 mm barrel)
Barrel length: 470 mm (18.5 inch) or 500 mm (20 inch)
Weight: 3.05 kg empty, with 470mm barrel
Capacity: 4 3-inch rounds in underbarrel tube magazine (6 3-inch rounds with extended magazine)

The Nova shotgun is the latest development in the pump shotguns from famous Italian company Benelli Armi. It has been developed in the late 1990s and incorporates the latest in firearms design. Nova tactical / Special Purpose shotgun is built to use most powerful 3 and 3 1/2 inch magnum shotshells yet to be reliable, light and comfortable to operate.

Nova uses patented design of the receiver and buttstock made as a single piece from polymer and reinforced with steel inserts. The buttstock could be equipped with optional internal recoil reducer, which is an essential feature for such a light gun firing most powerful ammunition. Butt is also fitted with rubber recoil pad, which also helps to tame the recoil. Long and very comfortable sliding forearm also is made from polymer. Benelli Nova uses the rotating bolt with two lugs to lock the barrel . Tubular underbarrel magazine can hold up to 4 3-inch shotshells in the standard version and up to 6 3-inch shotshells with magazine extension installed (it can hold even more if you will use shorter shells). Nova Tactical is available with rifle type open or ghost ring (diopter) sights, and with optional accessory rail that mounts at the top of the receiver. This rail allows to mount various scopes, such as red dot or night vision devices. Manual safety is of cross-bolt, push-button type, and located at the forward part of the triggerguard. There's also internal firing pin safety. The gun has a weather-resistant finish on all metallic parts, and the stock is already weather-resistant, so Nova tactical is well suited as a carry / patrol gun for those who walks on their own feets. It also makes the Nova an excellent hunting gun with proper barrel installed.

In general. Nova is a high quality, light weight and hard-hitting weapon, with the only drawback being the unavailability of the folding butt version (which, obviously, will require a different receiver).

This is lesslethal shotgun only loaded with beanbag rounds.
HK69 40mm grenade launcher (Germany)

Caliber: 40mm (40x46)
Overall length: 683 mm with stock extended; 463 mm with stock retracted
Weight: 2.76 kg unloaded
Effective range: up to 150 meters point target, up to 350 meters area targets

The HK69 grenade launcher has been developed by the famous company Heckler-Koch from Germany. This launcher has been adopted by the Bundeswehr (German army) in 1974 as the "Granatpistole 40 mm", or "GraPi 40mm" in short. This weapon is also offered for export under its original name, the HK69.

HK69 is a single shot, breech-loading weapon with rifled barrel. The barrel is made of steel, and is hinged to the receiver to be tipped up at the rear for loading and unloading. The single-action firing mechanism has an exposed hammer and ambidextrous manual safety, located above the trigger. The barrel latch, which unlocks the barrel for reloading, is located next to the hammer but operates independently, so the launcher could be safely reloaded with the hammer down, and the hammer can be cocked later at necessary moment. The launcher is fitted with polymer pistol grip and with retractable shoulder stock with rubber buttpad. The sights consist of a front blade and a folding-down ladder sight, graduated from 50 to 400 meters in 50m increments, with additional "short-range" flip up rear sight, graduated for 50 and 100 meters range. The HK69 can fire all types of 40mm low-velocity ammunition, including the HE-FRAG, HE-DP, smoke, illuminating and various less-lethal (tear gas canister, rubber baton) rounds.

Advanced Air Taser® or Tazer

Model 44002 ADVANCED TASER M18 with 2 Air Cartridges


The ADVANCED TASER® brand non-lethal weapon is a conducted energy weapon that utilizes compressed nitrogen to shoot two small probes up to 15 feet. These probes are connected to the weapon by high-voltage insulated wire. When the probes make contact with the target, the ADVANCED TASER brand non lethal weapon transmits powerful electrical pulses along the wires and into the body of the target through up to two inches of clothing.
The new Advanced Taser M-18 has almost 100% effectiveness rating. It combines the injury reducing benefits of traditional stun technology with a quantum leap in stopping power via new Electro-Muscular Disruption (EMD) technology. In police studies, the new Advanced Tazer has a higher instant incapacitation rate than a 9mm hand gun. The Advanced Tazer shoots out 2 darts attached to 15 feet of wire. 50,000 volts travels over the wires and over-rides the central nervous system providing incredible takedown power.

NEW Electro-Muscular Disruption (EMD) Technology
There are two categories of energy weapons: Stun weapons and EMD weapons.

STUN WEAPONS: Traditional stun technology weapons operate in a 7-14 Watt range and interfere with the communication signals within the nervous system of the target. These stun systems primarily effect the sensory nervous system. Like static on the communication lines between the brain and the body, stun systems interfere with the human command and control systems. However, a small percentage of people with a very high tolerance for electrical stimulation can fight through the effect of these 7-14 Watt systems.

EMD WEAPONS: EMD weapons use a more powerful 18 to 26 Watt electrical signal to completely override the central nervous system and directly control the skeletal muscles. This EMD effect causes an uncontrollable contraction of the muscle tissue, allowing the M-Series to physically debilitate a target regardless of pain tolerance or mental focus. The ADVANCED TASER M-Series are EMD weapons -- specifically designed to stop even the most elite, aggressive, focused combatants. Rather than simply interfering with communication between the brain and muscles, the ADVANCED TAZER EMD systems directly tell the muscles what to do: contract until the target is in the fetal position on the ground. The ADVANCED TAZER provides for maximum safety for both the officer and the subject by bringing dangerous situations quickly under control before force escalates to lethal levels.

Product Information for the M18 Advanced Taser

The M18 Advanced Taser shoots out 2 darts attached to 15 feet of wire. 50,000 volts travel over the wires and override the central nervous system providing incredible takedown power.

SAFE

With TASER devices, you can safely stop a threat from up to 15-feet or 4.5 meters. Or, you can use the TASER as a contact stun device a powerful backup capability. In field uses by law enforcement against dangerous suspects, TASER technology has among the lowest injury rates of any force option. Medical studies and field results indicate that the effects from TASER devices leave no lasting aftereffects as attested by over 100,000 police volunteers and in over 55,000 actual field uses.

EFFECTIVE

A hit anywhere on the body can be effective with the TASER, making it easier to use and more reliable under stress.

TASER energy weapons are field proven as 95% effective in actual police use the highest of any non-lethal device. TASER International makes the only non-lethal device that can truly incapacitate people under the influence of PCP and other dan gerous drugs. Further, a hit anywhere on the body can be effective, making it easy to use and more reliable under stress.

EASY TO USE

# 95% effective
# No aftereffects or contamination
# 15-foot or 4.5 meter range
# Reload in less than 2 seconds
# Contact stun capability

TASER technology has been available to citizens concerned with self-defense for over a decade. Unlike conventional weapons, TASER is effective with a hit anywhere on the body. To be effective for self-defense, bullets risk more lethal consequences, striking the head or vital organs. Similarly, chemical or pepper sprays must hit an assailant in the face a much less reliable alternative in fast moving confrontations. And, in a windy environment, sprays can be blown back onto the user.

The TASER can be used more effectively and safely with less training than other self-defense technologies.
