I am a new member to this forum and have learned a great deal since joining.
My company is in the development / R&D phase of a 40mm weapon for home defense. It would be similar to the weapon that the police and swat teams currently use for riot and crowd control. The round would have a rubberized tip and would allow for the user to take down an enemy and take control of the situation without major long term injury. It also would be an option for those who do not feel comfortable having a loaded weapon around the house.
This is a link to a video of a soldier getting hit with a 40mm round.
Our prototype does exactly the same thing to an assailant allowing for time to gain control over the situation.
Our weapon would be considered a less lethal weapon. I would like some input or feedback on if this weapon would be a viable option for home defense. The weapon, according to our lawyers is completely non regulated and could be available in all states. I respectfully look forward to your feedback -
