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.
Here's the link to the story:

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.

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.
