    Someone should really come out with a shotgun shell that shoots a bag full of beans to stun their target...

    Just another version of a 12ga "beanbag" round that is already common in LE.

    I find the best way to stop the target is to shoot it with real ammo. That "less than lethal" stuff is BS.

    You know what would work even better? To make the projectile out of some kind of metal, that way it actually goes INTO the bad guy. I bet that would stop them better.

    Oh wait....

    When I was in college years ago and was less than the 'pillar of society' I am now, my buddies and I were exfilling from a situation when the University police showed up and used the 'bean bags'. Three of us got hit with them in mid-sprint at about 15M. We three didn't miss a beat and successfully navigated an urban obstacle course en route to our BOL six blocks away. :rofl:

    Less than lethal = laughable.

    Why would want to tie policeman's hands when they are facing deadly enemies? Enemies who are trying to kill them, and you want to throw bean bags at them? You can't be serious.

    So why don't they make less-than-lethal ammo only available to civilians and lethal to LEO?

    Stick to regular ammunition known for it's stopping power. Develop less lethal criminals.......... Good luck with that.

    Libs don't want to "hurt" the criminals until they themselves are being threatened, then "shoot them". Hypocrites

    Less-lethal devices are not for use when lethal force is reasonable. They are for when you need a baton or Taser but the suspect is beyond their reach. That's it - a longer-range baton. The 40mm foam baton rounds are better than beanbags. They like a 115 MPH fastball.

    When I read this, I thought to add, "all", as in all of them.
    Then I read this and the thought continued. All of them, as in, the occupiers or the clowns that chain themselves together and block the trucks, coming out of the Ports.
    Figure out the non-lethal amount of current that could be applied to the first or last clown, in the chain and hit him with it, causing ALL the clowns to get a jolt. Alternate, power on, power off, ask "do you guys want to come out of the street, now?", repeat, repeat.....until they freely stand up and walk to the side of the road. I really like that idea!
