Cool idea though, would be cooler if it was a tracking device.
only our armed units can carry firearms, most forces have only a few firearm officers for citys and towns, tasers are rare items mostly in firearm squads or the odd officer even then i have seen only one officer with a taser where i live and the rest have been in citys that have higher crime rates

so i wouldn't be surprised if these are only issued to riot squads and officers who carry a taser i.e. late night high crime areas or our firearm squads

also our police are very careful about use of force so i can just see this tpx idea being rather intersting if an innocent person is arrested over this or somebody is harmed (guilty or not) by a pellet

I bet this is just for the news media. In a real riot situation, they'll probably use speedball markers and walk that trigger to mark as many people as possible so they can round them up later.

I was waiting for chadders to chime in and clear up some UK SOP.

It is so different in the US. My work used to have a resource police officer in building, carrying both a firearm and a taser. And this is just a small town high school. A few students have been tased...

I'm still not getting the DNA tagging concept. Are they going door to door after the riots with test kits? How is this admissible in a UK court? All it proves is that some officer shot the guy. How does that become a criminal charge? "Well, we know you did SOMEthing, so off to gaol for ten years, chap."

I think they should use LSD rather than DNA. It'd be more fun for everyone involved and behavior might indicate who's who.

Seriously though this seems a step down from FN303 projectiles, it has 'bad idea' written all over it. If your shooting perps in public then the most accurate projectile is the one to use, I'm sure the fill is compatible. Imagine a DNA ball hooking into some toddler's eye socket.

Regarding arming police I think it's reasonable for the constabulary to bear whatever arms a citizen is entitled to carry. One would hope a candidate selected for the constabulary would be fit enough and well trained to carry out their duties without a smart-bomb equivalent.

Yeah sorry lol ><. The amount of times that I actually see people say that and just sound like they're jumping on the "Oh no my sport" bandwagon is a pet peeve I guess. But to contribute further for those interested in something similar to this as far as color goes, or loosely similar maybe, I bring you this!

haha, its all good. People can get a bit antsy about things that wont actually harm the sport at all.


Those kits look pretty great for the price. If I can say one good thing about ANS its that they carry alot of color options for different items (they are the only place I know of that has so many freak barrel color options)
