What is a pepper pistol?

A pepper pistol is normally a replica of a real pistol. It’s a less lethal alternative to a proper firearm. It works with cartridges, but does not shoot an actual projectile. It shoots blanks and / or flares, as well as peppers that enable you to fight off an attacker.

What effect does a pepper round have?

Pepper blinds the perpetrator temporarily. It also gives the attacker a burning sensation of the skin, which could last up to an hour. The perp will also experience upper body spasms, forcing him to bend forward. It could also cause uncontrollable coughing, making it difficult to breathe or speak for up to 15 minutes. Pepper causes temporary discomfort and burning of the lungs, which causes shortness of breath.
