The Pepperball Ammo is the most potent on the market, combining kinetic impact, psychological shock, and sensory incapacitation to irritate and gain compliance. The pepperball is filled with a capsaicin preparation.
Kinetic impact refers to the impact of a projectile as a result of the force with which it is fired. Gas guns have a greater muzzle velocity to project the pepperball, and offer a longer-range, more user-friendly way to disperse the pepperballs. This also ensures that the pepperball hits – and stops – a target in his tracks.
The psychological shock of hearing shots fired, combined with the kinetic impact of the pepperball projectiles, contributes to the effect of the pepperballs.
By infiltrating the sensory system of an assailant, the capsaicin powder incapacitates an assailant for up to 20 minutes. For that period, an assailant’s lung capacity, breathing, and sight are severely compromised.
The pepperball is also an irritant to the skin, nose and eyes. The physiological impact on an assailant includes coughing uncontrollably, an intense burning sensation in the eyes and on the skin, and, in some instances, vomiting.
The combination of these three – kinetic impact, psychological shock and sensory incapacitation – effectively immobilises a suspect, allowing adequate time for the suspect to be apprehended.
