A new less lethal round!
« on: February 05, 2015, 06:46:31 AM »
I guess we'll try this one until an officer shoots his hand off. Or instinctively double taps. In the heat of battle you merely install a golfball on the end of your pistol. Brilliant. Someone tell me I'm missing something.

When things escalate to me drawing a gun,it is LETHAL.
LEO's have TASER , Pepper spray  and bean bag or rubber 12 gauge rounds as non lethal choices.
An officer should not have options on his last line of defence to confuse training and use of his firearm.
A pool noodle makes a poor club.

So the LEO can't holster with the device attached, the LEO must possibly determine in a split second when/if to manually attach it with the free hand (hopefully they have a free hand), and the LEO only has one "less lethal" shot to make (any follow-up shots could result in a dead body)?

During a firefight, nobody ever wishes for smaller caliber or magazines..

I'm glad I'm not alone... I fail to see any benefit here. It sure seems like a "less lethal" that puts everyone at greater risk. Even if everything works right after the single shot you're still in a position pointing a pistol at someone with a finger on the trigger. Seems like a mistake to me.

My guess is that this idiotic device will be quietly forgotten within a year.

Unless, of course, some city-level politician gets wind of it and starts ordering the local PD to start using it.  In which case it will be long-remembered for the ensuing string of tragedies.

I look at it as you draw a gun and shoot at someone..... that is all that should happen. The gun should be separate from any other less than lethal devise.

I dont want a gun shaped pepper spray or anything else like that. I almost dont like tasers but they can be in a secondary spot and drawn with the none gun hand

Awww.........its a clown nose for bullets. 

 If it weren't a matter of officers' life and/or death it might be funny.
