KIMBER PEPPER BLASTER 2

KIMBER PEPPER BLASTER 2

Piexon is a defense company that specializes in advanced pepper spray self defense solutions. They are the same company that have produced the JPX and JPX4 for both law enforcement and consumer less lethal defense use. However the JPX and JPX4 both retail in the $300- $500 range. However they do have a more cost effective solution called the Pepper Blaster which utilizes the same Piexol OC solution that the JPX and JPX4 cartridges use. The Pepper Blaster is currently being marketed by Kimber Firearms as a less lethal solution as an additional carry for firearm users who wish to have multiple force options available. The Pepper Blaster 2 is a two shot unit meant to be discarded after it's been used. It features a semiautomatic firing mechanism and fires the two shots via pyrotechnic discharge much like traditional firearms but is not considered a firearm. It's effective reach is not as far as the JPX or JPX4, but it...

Why less lethal?

Why less lethal?

Why less lethal? This a question asked by many, but consider the following. Above is a graph used by many law enforcement and security professionals when learning about use of force options and levels. Deadly force should always be a last resort. In many instances a firm and confident voice and posture will be enough to deescalate a potentially hazardous and violent situation. But when this fails "soft techniques" and "hard techniques" may be suitable to hinder further aggression and violence. Tools such as pepper spray and kubatons can be used in a less harmful manner in order to force compliance and stop an unwanted action. If this approach fails the next level of force may be warranted and authorized prior to the final stage of lethal use of force. Tools and weapons such as impact launchers both in compressed air format and pyrotechnic discharge can be enough to stop attackers and violent aggressors. In many parts of America and throughout...

JPX4

JPX4

From the Switzerland based company Piexon comes their latest solution in less lethal OC firepower called the JPX4. Piexon revolutionized the consumer defense market several years ago when they first unveiled their JPX Jet Protector; a two-shot semi automatic pistol that fired blasts of OC gel at distances previously unseen from compact platforms. Their system uses a pyrotechnic charge, just like a traditional firearm to deliver a payload down range, but instead of a lethal round the device fires a hot blast of OC. The JPX systems use their own proprietary OC called Piexol which is rated a 400kS, which will cause extreme burning to the eyes, skin, and difficulty breathing to any exposed target. The JPX4 is the newer four-shot variant of the original system, but the newer platform uses an open breach reload for the cartridges rather than a replaceable barrel system found on the original JPX platform. The firing mechanism is mechanical and delivers the OC down...

Walther PDP

Walther PDP

There is a new less lethal self defense product out on the consumer market that is being manufactured by UMAREX in partnership with Walther firearms. Their new less lethal platform is called the Walther PDP (personal defense pistol). It is not a firearm, but a pepper spray device similar to that of the MACE Pepper Gun. It works off of an aerosol OC canister that is inserted into the main body of the weapon where the muzzle and slide would be located on a traditional firearm. The Walther PDP has an effective range of six meters or 19 feet. The device comes in various colors such as black, white, and pink so the user has the option to carry a weapon that is easily distinguishable from a standard firearm. There are three different cartridges for the device which include; the Walther Pepper Cartridge, Walther Pepper Gel Cartridge, and Walther Training Cartridge. The Walther PDP features the same ergonomic grips as...

MACE Pepper Spray Gun

MACE Pepper Spray Gun

MACE is a company that specializes in personal defense and security products. Their products range from personal alarms, stun guns, and self defense sprays in various forms. One of their items is the MACE Pepper Spray Gun which is a compact device in which the user inserts a 28 gram OC (Oleoresin Capsicum) can into the muzzle and activates it by pulling the trigger. Unlike some other device out there on the market the OC is delivered via compressed air instead of a pyrotechnic charge like the Defenzia or JPX. The OC is 10% formula which is on the lower spectrum of law enforcement strength. The formula also contains UV dye which can help law enforcement officials identify suspects after a hostile and potentially dangerous encounter. The device offers a maximum range of 20 feet and between 6-7 prays per can. There is also an external safety located where the hammer spur on a traditional firearm would be. Some models...

JPX Jet Projector

JPX Jet Projector

The JPX Jet Projector is a relatively new device which is available to both the consumer market and law enforcement agencies. It was a compact weapon system that has the ability to deploy two highly concentrated OC (oleoresin capsicum) shots with a range of approximately twenty five feet towards a target at 405 mph. This provides enough force for the OC to wrap around sunglasses and penetrate ski masks. The cartridge is inserted on top of the pistol frame and meant to be replaced after deployment. The system comes in two different varieties; a fixed blade sight version and a laser sighted version. The laser sighted version has a switch under the trigger guard that activates the laser sight. The weapon system is setup in a side by side configuration much like a double barrel shotgun. The cartridge can be quickly replaced by depressing an ambidextrous lever located close to the pistol grip. The JPX Jet Projector is available in...
