Sometimes you have to create a smoke screen to gain control. The Defense Technology Spede-Heat Pyrotechnic Grenade, Continuous Discharge has not one, not two, not three, but four ports through which pelletized chemical agents are discharged, and that’s just from the top. There are three more ports on the side and another on the bottom. The grenade is specifically intended for outdoor use with a wind advantage. MSRP $34.60.
Less Lethal Over Longer Distances
The 40 mm eXact iMpact Extended Range Round from Defense Technology, part of the Safariland brand, is designed for the company’s 40 mm Launcher and offers increased velocity for greater accuracy over longer distances. This lightweight, high-speed projectile incorporates a plastic body and a foam nose that is stabilized by the rifling inside the launcher barrel. Just as in a rifle or pistol, rifling dramatically increases the accuracy potential of a fired projectile. Additionally, smokeless powder allows for very consistent velocities (another plus for consistent accuracy). The Extended Range Round is most effective for incapacitation when used within the optimal energy range of 10 to 70 meters. MSRP $26.99.
The 40 mm launcher from Defense Technology, part of the Safariland brand, is designed to fire any of the company’s 37 mm or 40 mm less-lethal munitions. The barrel of the launcher is equipped with both a ghost ring sight and a full Picatinny rail for the addition of other sight types or accessories. In addition, the barrel is also fully rifled, which increases the accuracy potential of the less-lethal round. A triple-latch system provides the additional strength necessary when using the “hotter” extended-range rounds. MSRP $1,100.
