The XREP punctures the target with multiple probes, and then unspools to dangle from the unfortunate belligerent's body, all the while applying Taser's infamous rapid-fire electrical pulses. As an added bonus, any helpful passerby trying to yank the XREP out of the target before the 20-second discharge cycle is finished will also get zapped, thanks to a "hand-trap wire" that's nestled in among the other hanging cables

Haha, I don't know. I'd be scared if someone put this into a semi auto with an extension barrel for 9 +1 with all of these loaded. It would be like a jellyfish in the ocean shocking people. :chris:

I would think thats impossible due to the fact they probably put little powder in these things so it wouldn't be enough pressure to cycle.

I read somewhere thats why Benellis are both pump and semi because the specialty rounds people use in them. Bean Bag, Door Breaker, Etc.

I want some bird bomb shots :D

They are like shooting m80s :D

Specialty shotgun shells are sort of in a gray area. Less lethal things should be shot/used from less lethal delivery systems (spray can/ plastic taser pistol).

You get to go to court over possible firearms charges rather than a scenario where you defensively hosed down a deranged street person with mace. I do have a few rubber buckshot shells, but only keep them at home.

Cause little taser loads are much scarier than 1oz high velocity slugs or 000 buckshot?

YAY! FINALLY!


All of the fun of shotgun self-defense, but none of the guilt.

As a civilian.. I would figure that the only reason you would fire any kind of weapon at another person would be to kill rather than to incapacitate. It's really an all or nothing deal as far as legalities are concerned.
