New from Jaycor Tactical Systems is the PepperBall™ System, which combines kinetic impact with Oleoresin Capsicum (OC) powder to provide law enforcement officers with a safe, effective, easy-to-use, less-lethal weapon. Using .68-caliber, high-pressure air and compressed-gas launchers, the PepperBall System can shoot hard, frangible projectiles, filled with OC powder, up to 30 feet. The projectiles are said to hit with enough force to produce temporary bruises or welts, and cause a psychological impression of being shot, not to mention the physical irritation of the OC powder. Launchers are available in several pistol and rifle configurations.
