Interesting use for a Tippmann TPX

It looks like the UK has found another use of for the Tippmann TPX. I like the orange color myself.

So does that mean they carry a pistol, taser and TPX? I think somebody is gonna grab the wrong weapon one day...

Cool idea though, would be cooler if it was a tracking device.

I thought they just have a club and whistle . . . I'd never be a cop in the UK.

So... they are shooting DNA at people.

Mar...... oh MAAAR!

Does their mayo penetrate clothes? Other wise, couldn't the perp just take off the piece of clothing that was shot?

If he touches it with his skin or gets any marsplatter, he marked.

I know in Iraq paintballs were mixed with pepperballs to mark robed figures for pickup, I guess this would be good for a riot at Mardi Gras in Rio...

This is a direct quote:

"A British security company has launched a new device that deploys a non-lethal pellet that marks its target for several weeks."

Did tippmann sell them the design or are we looking at blatant infringement?

And what happens the first time they put one into someone's eye? Perp or bystander.

i could see someone shooting a 350 FPS shot at a perp and missing, but hitting a bystander. ouch.

Worse. They're not allowed to carry tasers due to the chance of a perp having a heart condition apparently - special circumstance only. Same with firearms, Firearms Division only.

This actually reminds me of the FNH Less Lethal pistol which is basically a modified and rebranded T8.1: FNH USA - Distinct Advantage :: 303P
Interestingly, FNH also have a T8.1 on their website for training purposes.
