- What are these pinaballs? A form of nonlethal projectile? Some…
i think you mean piñaballs
It's kind of one of these, but with a bullet. The pinball is partially hollowed and "catches" the bullet. Since you now have a lot more mass flying through the air, it's moving a lot slower. Since it's got a bigger surface area and is travelling slower, it's much less likely to penetrate the skin and do lethal damage. Instead of putting a hole through the guy, you're hitting him with a hammer.
The idea is that your first shot will be more of a warning or disabling shot than a lethal one
can certainly still be lethal if it hits you in the right place, of course
It's not a very good idea. If you don't need lethal force, you shouldn't be using a gun. If you do, you want every shot to count. It also causes aiming issues because the balance of your gun changes dramatically following the first shot. Bad aim is the most dangerous part of a gun. There's also the issue of it potentially coming loose and your "nonlethal" shot becomes lethal because the thing fell off as you unholstered.
Seems cool but I disagree with your "if you don't need lethal force" statement. Self-defense is important but just because you don't want to kill someone doesn't mean you shouldn't be allowed to have a gun for self-defense. I'd rather shoot someone with this and hurt the fuck out of them so they get the message and only resort to killing if they continue to try whatever they were doing. This actually seems like a great thing. Ranged self-defense shouldn't be strictly lethal force, and this gives you the option to have non-lethal ranged defense.
If you don't need lethal force, you shouldn't be using a gun. There are far less dangerous tools that are just as/more effective than this.
Far less dangerous and also far less effective and again, the whole point of this accessory is to make the first round non-lethal, which is, you guessed it, making it far less dangerous.
Less effective? Have you ever seen someone tazed or pepper-sprayed? They are plenty effective. You can't continue fighting when you are completely unable to see. You can't continue fighting when you're having muscle spasms on the floor.
This device is basically hitting someone with a hammer. Very painful, but not actually physically incapacitating. Unless of course it scores a hit on the head or neck. Then it's quite possibly lethal.
This invention is bad at physically incapacitating an aggressor, and the chances of this invention killing you are several orders of magnitude higher than a tazer or pepperspray.
There are a ton of things that could go wrong with it that would cause your gun to be lethal, such as fragmentation of the steel bearing or improper alignment. This device can easily be lethal even when used correctly. Even if everything goes right and it's non-lethal, there's a very high likelyhood of inflicting permanent disability.
Rule 1 of gun safety is that you never point it at anything (or anyone) you are not ready to destroy. This device causes you to break the first rule of gun safety. This device is not a good non-lethal tool. If you do not require lethal force, you should not be using a gun. Ever.
Traditional devices are both safer and more effective. This system is quite simply an inferior product.
There's no aiming and balance issues following the first shot. It's completely gone afterwards; the whole attachment. It's also not attached to the gun at all times. You draw the gun to react to a potential threat, and if you have additional time, you can choose to use a less than lethal option.
I'm aware of that. The problem is that after the first shot, you've removed a good chunk of weight from the weapon. If you return the gun to position according to muscle memory, you'll be aiming high since the barrel isn't weighed down any more.
Alternatively, someone normally trains their draw/fire without the device. Then with it, they'd aim low.
This can certainly be compensated for with extensive training with both non-lethal and lethal followup shots, but it's likely cost prohibitive.
Any time you fire a projectile and it doesn't go exactly where you intend it to... That's unsafe.
And carrying this around unattached to the weapon defeats the purpose IMO. If you have the time to make the mental decision to draw it, attach it, and re-aim your weapon... You could have just as easily pulled out your tazer with your off-hand.
Attaching this device also offers a small opportunity for an aggressor where you will be unable to safely fire your firearm while you manipulate it.
Drawing the tazer in your offhand means you can holster your weapon after your non-lethal option is already ready.

You don't remember either of the songs?
I fucking heard those everywhere.
Nope, not at all. I didn't do much on the internet when I was a youngster, though. I think the first time I actually made an account and subscribed to anyone, it was when Shane Dawson was getting popular. Then about 2 months after that I got sick of him. Regardless, there's nothing worth remembering about Fred.
