Phantom Services utilizes the FlashLauncher as a key tool in its non-lethal arsenal for Maritime and Personal Security.
FlashLauncher system combines a flashlight and a pepperball launcher
into one product. Its bright 100 lumen flashlight will illuminate your
immediate surroundings (such as the inside of your vessel or your
weather decks), and allows identification of man-size objects at target
accurate range (10 m/30 feet).
I plan on training with one of
these systems in the near future, and will write a more in-depth review.
From an initial glance, it looks like it may be an answer to keeping
attackers from a contact distance, enhancing your survivability. This
particular system may also satisfy those who do not care for firearms
