Today, there are many stray animals on the streets, which attack and cause many problems to innocent people every year. For self-defense against dogs, for example, gas alarm pistols are very effective. They can drive away an animal with their suffocating smell and sound effects. What are these weapons and do they cause damage to animals and people?
What is a gas alarm pistol
This is a short-barreled weapon and in appearance strongly resembles its combat counterpart. It has a suitable magazine, the capacity of which depends on the model. In the best case, you can use up to 15 cartridges, which are automatically loaded one by one in the chamber, and you just need to press the trigger. The length of the barrel of the pistol in this case does not matter, as it lacks striking abilities, but the caliber is important in terms of range. For example, 7.62 mm or 8 mm has a range of up to 2-3 m, and 5.6 or 6 mm - the range of action is up to 1.5 m.
Can this pistol kill
You cannot kill with a gas pistol, but if you shoot from a distance of 10-20 cm, you will cause serious burns and even inability to breath of the person or animal. After the shot, a gas cloud is formed, which suffocates and stings the eyes. This can stress and neutralize the aggressor for a short time, so you can move away to a safe distance. However, in case there is a contrary wind, you can also be gassed.
There is belief that the gas alarm pistol cannot be used indoors. If blank cartridges are loaded in it, you have the opportunity to fire a shot without releasing gas, in order to stress and distract the aggressor, which gives you more time to react.
What do the different colors of the cartridges mean
Nowadays there are different types of cartridges for gas alarm pistols on the market, which differ in the different colors of their plugs at the bottom. For example:
- Green - denote blank cartridges;
- Blue - full of tear gas CN
- Yellow - have suffocating CS gas;
- Brown - full of hot PV gas.
The latter types of cartridges are most effective in self-defense against dogs or drunk people.
