The Aegis Industries radical new less-than-lethal device, the MK63 Trident, is designed with the intended purpose to give the user several different self-defense options within one package. The Trident offers users an electronic restraint device, an impact device much like a baton and an OC pepper spray device all in one easy-to-use piece of equipment that is safe and effective. The thumb activated handle will disperse OC pepper spray out to 25 feet, and if that isn’t enough, the Trident has a built-in electronic restraint device that works much like a stun gun. This device also incorporates an LED light with a blinding output of 320 lumens and has an optional laser or white light option.
ASP’s (Armament Systems and Procedures) new Agent Baton is small, lightweight, easy to grip, discreet and extremely effective. Made from aluminum and high grade carbon steel, this baton has a striking surface rating of 240,000 PSI tensile strength, which in layman’s terms translates into a devastatingly low profile baton that packs a punch. When fully retracted, the baton measures 7.75 inches but rapidly extends to become a 16-inch LeverLoc less-than-lethal device. It also comes with a snap lock clip, which enables it to be carried in a range of positions. Because the ASP Agent Baton is lightweight and small, it is easily hidden in a pocket or waistband making it an ideal “off-duty” baton.
Designed for the law enforcement and private security industries, the Street Defender is machined from high-strength aerospace industry standard aluminum. An O-ring sealing and injection-molded positive safety feature protect against accidental discharges. The active inserts contain 30 one-half second bursts of potent, 2 million heat units-rated oleoresin capsicum, a proven irritant/deterrent. The training inserts hold an inert, lightly scented aerosol. The effective range is 10 feet. Each device is performance-tested for function and individually date-coded for reliability. MSRP $44.
The Talon is Armament Systems and Procedures’ new offering this year. The DiscLoc, button-release baton, like all the company’s expandable batons, can be deployed with a sharp, sweeping action. However, with a push of the button the Talon can also be pulled out with the opposite hand, which allows for easy deployment in confined spaces. This is made possible through the use of two opposing discs on the inside of the baton that secure each section of the shaft in place. To retract the baton, simply push the button again and either press on the end or place the Talon in the included sheath. MSRP $175.
Brite-Strike Technologies’ rolling, illuminated distraction and disorientation device is a small, lightweight, water-resistant and concentrically designed sphere that is weighted to land light side up eventually to illuminate an area or subject. Tactical Balls are not strobes, nor are they exceptionally dazzling. They are simply designed to distract bad guys and then provide illumination for officer entry. Also available in an infrared configuration that is highly effective when used with today’s modern night vision goggles. MSRP $60.
Brownells’ new Low Force Trainer Kit brings incredible realism to your department’s less lethal, force-on-force training for less than 25 cents consumables cost per round. Designed for use with 37- or 40-mm launchers, LFT projectiles closely match the short-range flight characteristics of most 37- or 40-mm less-lethal ammunition, and the felt impact on participants is less significant than that of Simunition® or Airsoft rounds. The kit includes six reusable cartridges, one loading/decapping rod, a priming cap and 12 silicone/plastic reusable projectiles, propelled by readily available 209-shot shell primers (sold separately). The innovative LFT is available exclusively at www.policestore.com.
