Meet Byrna – Probably the Best Less-Lethal Weapons
Byrna Gun has been around for almost 20 years now. And it managed to prove its efficiency: the Byrna self defense gun makes the top 10 among non-lethal pistols and rifles. This pepper ball launcher stops, deters and disorients potential attackers while proving to remain accurate up to 80 feet. Sounds too good to be true? But it is. Let’s learn more about Byrna products.
What is Byrna pepper gun? This less lethal weapon combines features of a pepper spray can and a powerful BB gun. A Byrna launcher fires with special projectiles – polymer balls filled with Oleoresin Capsicum, highly irritating substance that causes coughing, wheezing, gasping and other effects similar to those of a pepper spray. But unlike sprays, Byrna gun’s range is 60-80 feet, which makes it far safer to use posing much less risk of self harm. Plus, it also does physical kinetic damage to an attacker.
The Byrna launcher operates on compressed CO2, but unlike other similar pneumatic weapons Byrna gun punctures the CO2 canister only when you pull the trigger for the first time, so the canister doesn’t bleed air as long as you do not use the gun, and retains all the pressure required for energetic and accurate shots when you need them most.
Byrna Pepper Ball
Byrna pepperball is a small water-soluble polymer sphere filled with chemical irritants such as OC, tear gas (CS) or both. Upon hitting the target, the pepper ball immediately breaks producing a cloud of its components large enough to guarantee inhaling by the aggressor. Exposure to the irritant is the main adverse factor that stops the attacker, disorients and immobilizes him, and even repels him away.
Byrna offers a range of products to choose from and many of them are available in our catalog above.
Byrna launchers. Pistols, rifles, compact launchers. Devices are different, but their purpose is the same: shoot a round of Byrna balls and stop the attacker, intruder or a violent person who menaces you.
