San Jose, CA (PressExposure) April 28, 2009 -- The RAP4 Less Lethal Projectiles are hard plastic spheres built to burst on impact. They contain a very fine Capsaicin II (chili-pepper) dust-like powder. RAP4 Less Lethal Projectiles are filled with enough Capsaicin powder to irritate a suspect's eyes, nose and throat.
The RAP4 Less Lethal System is a high pressure system with enough kinetic force to get the suspect's attention, unleashing a cloud of Capsaicin powder into the face (eyes, nose and throat) of the aggressor. The RAP4 Less Lethal System offers effective tools for achieving suspect compliance. Because the projectiles break upon impact, they do not penetrate skin or pose ricochet hazards, making the RAP4 Less Lethal System safe even at contact range. As they burst on impact and fill the vicinity with the irritant powder, using the RAP4 Less Lethal System officers don't have to hit their target to subdue the suspect. By shooting in the vicinity, the suspect will be overwhelmed by a cloud of irritation powder.
Even when the suspect is running away, the officer can shoot into a wall or object in front of the suspect, leaving the suspect running into a barely visible cloud of irritation powder.
For training without the irritant effect, RAP4 Less Lethal Training Rounds are also available. These rounds contain harmless white powder to demonstrate the effect of the RAP4 Less Lethal Projectiles; they have the same performance, without the painful effect of the "real thing."
