Non-Lethal Shotgun. Huh?

Military Intelligence. Service Station. Efficient Government. Honest Politician. Non-Lethal Shotgun. What’s wrong with this picture? I’m not sure why anybody would want a non-lethal shotgun. When I point a gun at somebody (if I ever have to) it will be with the intent to stop them, i.e. kill them. Terminate them with extreme prejudice. Help them to assume room temperature.

Pepper Spray Meets Rocky Raccoon. And Not a Moment Too Soon.

Funny story. My ex took a self-defense course, and learned all about the right way to use pepper spray. She bought a keychain unit, and took it home to practice. She followed the instructions. What she didn’t figure on was A) it’s always windy in Amarillo, and B) the wind tends to shift directions. Suddenly. And without warning.

Suffice it to say that she now knows, up close and personal-like, exactly what it means to be sprayed.

Coulda been worse. The newest thing in pepper spray (shown above) is a combination pepper spray/staining ink arrangement, where you can brand your assailant like Rocky Raccoon for at least a couple of days.

New Ammo Promises to Render Targets Unconscious, Not Kill

German ammunition manufacturer Scheiße AG has announced the availability of a “revolutionary” cartridge designed to wound – but not fatally injure – a human target. Designated the Scheiße Ich Lüge, the bullet itself is designed to break the skin, but not penetrate through muscle tissue, organs, or bone, dissipating the kinetic energy throughout the body to render the target unconscious.
