This Self Defense Gun Uses Chemical-Filled Rounds and Compressed Air

The 'SALT Self Defense Gun' is a non-lethal method of personal protection that gives you the extended range of a traditional firearm without the harmful side effects.

This self defense gun shoots rounds that are filled with a powdered chemical that explodes and disperses upon impact. The chemical mixture instantly incapacitates a threat much like pepper spray would by causing temporary blindness, lung constriction and irritation. A single round produces a cloud of chemicals approximately four to five feet in diameter, which means you don't actually need to directly strike your target.

This non-lethal self defense tool also shoots quickly and effectively despite not using any actual gun powder. The gun is designed for those who may be uncomfortable with the loud noise associated with traditional firearms, and uses compressed air to shoot pellets that travel with the force of a 50 mile per hour fastball.
