Handgun Attachment Makes Bullet Non-Lethal

/ 4 years ago


A company based in California, titled Alternative Ballistics, specialises in (surprise surprise) creating alternatives to traditional firearms. Their latest creation is used in conjunction with your everyday gun, however, and it turns your fatal round to something a little more friendly.

Titled ‘The Alternative’, the small device clips onto the front of your firearm, and when fired catches the propelled bullet along with the metal ball at 80% less force than the bullet was originally fired at. As shown in the animation below, the bullet is effectively caught by the metal ball before carrying on its path. When it finally reaches its destination the ball shape increases the impact area so much so that the chance of it actually piercing flesh is minimal while still hitting its target with enough force to knock a person down, in a similar fashion to a bean bag round.

This Clip-on Handgun Attachment Makes Bullets Non-Lethal

Due to it being a simple attachment to the muzzle, the one-time device can be equipped alongside flashlights and sights with no impact on the guns normal use. The orange plastic ejects after firing meaning that you’re free to continue use without adjustment mid-operation.

With its simple to use nature and easy installation Alternative Ballistics hopes that police forces around the world could soon adopt ‘The Alternative’ as a quick way to incapacitate targets which can be carried around and ready for use at a moment notice.

    And why not use plastic bullets?

      Two resons come to mind
      Plastic would most likely shatter if fired from a gun unless they used an expensive composit.

      This is an addon to a current weapon with the idea of increasing the surface area (making penetration a lot harder)
