      actually, reading their website, it's worse. It IS Canada legal, which means the bouncy balls it fire have less than SIX JOULES of energy. You might as well throw them.

        don't have tons of experience with the range of less-lethal products that are available but i've used the byrna and it was better than other pepperball shit i've tried. all the threads on these are (a) people saying it's good for what it is and (b) people objecting to the usefulness of pepper-ball products in general.

        T4E is .43 cal though, not sure if pepperballs available in that size. They sell paint, chalk dust and solid rubber.

          Quick search shows .43 cal pepper are easily found on Amazon. Even a small family company advertising adjustable potency up to 90% on ebay.
          So the Byrna is a ripoff except for their catridge piercing feature

            $100 umarex marker does the same thing. you tap your "magwell" that holds the canister, and it gets punctured. it has an internal mag. i think it's a .50

    i know which one i would rather have. the point of these pepper guns isn't to be fancy pepper spray, the kinetic aspect means that far more material is taken into the lungs than simple pepper spray. people know to close their eyes and hold their breath when they get sprayed, which buys a couple seconds. being effectively gut punched and sprayed at the same time makes that damn near impossible.

        if i were shilling for byrna i wouldn't have used the generalized term "pepper gun". there are a few other companies making these, namely umarex and sabre. i think the byrna is basically the same function but at double markup and slightly smaller, which isn't really worth it. if you can conceal a G19 you can conceal most pepper guns.

        the idea is cool. the function is proven, many police forces use both pepper spray and guns in riot situations for the reasons i listed. if you don't like byrna, fine, but don't shit on the idea of pepper balls or pepper guns because they do work.

          no. you are a moron. if you have to punch someone's ticket in a defensive scenario, accept no substitutes for a compact 9mm or other sensible handgun cartridge. if you need a "get the frick off me" tool, these pepper guns are better than spray simply by distance and accuracy, but are still nonlethal. if you need something else for up close, stun guns are still viable and always will be - maybe even more so than a knife due to method of action.

          a paintball filled with potassium cyanide is far slower to kill than a CNS hit with a handgun, poses extreme risk to yourself and innocents, and almost guarantees that you die too when the guy you painted with poison keeps atracking you. it's stupid.

    Discharging a non-lethal weapon to a home invader = felony

    If you’re in fear for your life why didn’t you use a deadly weapon?

    Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, op didn’t use a gun because op didn’t think his life was in any danger, he just wanted to assault Jamal Jackson, with his pepper ball gun, jamal was merely breaking into people’s houses in search for a come up… can any of you say you haven’t done the same?

        he's talking out of his ass to make a point. some states have duty to retreat, some are castle doctrine, i can't think of a law that dictates nonlethal force to be a felony in a home invasion. I'm not entirely sure, so don't quote me on it, but i haven't seen the law.

          You can’t assault someone just because they’re trespassing in your home, intent to steal or not , intent to harm you or not it’s still assault.

          You can only use lethal force if they’re endangering your life and you can prove without a reasonable doubt that you were in fear for your life.

          Some black dude kicked down my door so I get to dump a mag in him is some youtuber bullshit

          What if he kicked down my door because he needed to dial 911 because he was overdosing… you’d be the one going to jail

          But if he’s kicking the door and going I’m going to fricking kill you with this here knife I’m brandishing then yeah you can shoot him

            which is why you use nonlethal force to stop someone committing a felony.

            i can't imagine anyone ruling against a person who had his home broken into, when the plaintiff very luckily didn't get killed. if you break into someone's home and walk out of it in cuffs after being pepper sprayed, count your blessings

            Assaulting an unknown person to remove them from your home is justifiable use of force. A reasonable person would have no idea what they intended. Do you really think a jury would convict someone of aasault for that? No, which is why it'd never even go to trial.

            You can't do it if it's *not* an unknown person, like say you see a repairman, it's proven in court you KNOW he's a repairman and you attack him.

              Well you never really have a good idea of what anyone intends at any time, do you? You're not a mind reader. But you can't shoot a random passerby on the street just because their intentions are unknown to you.

              For all intents and purposes shooting them with a non-lethal pepper ball is basically like hitting them with a baseball bat.

              >assaulting someone to get them out of your home is justified

              Is it?

              Some guy walks into your your house and you just start beating him with a baseball bad because his intentions are unknown to you, he is a stranger and happens to be trespassing?

              Or shooting him with lethal weapons being justified?

                he's an unknown person to you. unless he has "SALESMAN" written across his shirt, front and back, and has sales paraphernalia like flyers and samples, and it's light enough for you to unmistakably see all of this, then you are probably going to be found in the right if you use nonlethal options.

        Assault is a felony offense. It just depends on whether or not they consider your defensive action to be criminal, and what particular crime it constitutes.

          if it's gone to trial you're already half fricked. if the police rule it defensive all you usually face is a civil suit. pepper spraying someone because they broke into your home is pretty cut and dry.

      in your home you should be using lethal force whenever justified. outside the home, it's different. people get way more pissy over shootings in the street when some unarmed/syringe wielding crackhead attacks. a little pepper spray/balls is not only nonlethal, which iirc would more closely match the force used by your attacker, but is legal to carry anywhere. this may surprise you, but not everyone actually wants to carry a gun, and not everyone wants to put up with the training and legal knowledge required to effectively use a firearm. and most people just don't want to kill anyone, even in defense.

    I was looking at those Umarex .50 HDPE revolvers compared to their regular bb guns, and looks like you get about 10% of the muzzle velocity of a 9mm compared to 1% for a 4.5mm BB. Pretty sure if you hit someone in the head with a steel .50 ball they're not gonna get back up, even the BB's shoot through cans easily and still take a bite out of the concrete wall behind them.

    I've never understood the concept of "non lethal protection" for the average citizen. I mean for your drunken brawl type situation you don't want or need a weapon usually. For any legitimate threats the last thing in the world I would want is a "non lethal" (aka not effective) option, if I'm fearing for my life you better believe I'm going to use the real steel.
