“The s1 Pepper Spray Gun was designed to offer the trusted, non-lethal protection of pepper spray and tear gas AND the long-range protection of a traditional firearm,” saltsupply.com‘s website proclaims (demo video below), “but without the drawbacks of either.” I guess the company considers the need to shoot a firearm accurately a drawback . . .
“Accuracy not required – even an imperfect shot will trigger the defense cloud – and create a barrier between you and harm’s way.” That would be a “5’ toxic defense cloud that can cause temporary blindness and difficulty breathing.” Can cause? Hmmm.
Speaking of distance, let’s go the tape [measure]!
Wow! A pepper spray gun that can hit a target 180 feet/60 yards away! I’m not quite sure why your average citizen would need that kind of range, or what the bullet drop curve would look like (I’m imagining a rainbow), or how much of the bullet’s “force of a 50mph fastball” would be sustained over that distance, but . . .
The s1 sure is BIG! Even for a dedicated home carry booster like myself, schlepping this massive weapon around the house seems a bit problematic. Still, better this than nothing, right? Yours for just $349.99! Only five left in stock!
