PepperBall Technologies Introduces New Consumer Pepper Spray Gun and Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary

New Pocket-Sized Pepper Powder Gun Available to the Public

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- With the mark of its 10-year anniversary, PepperBall Technologies Incorporated (PTI) has taken its first venture into the consumer market with the introduction of the HotShot - a pocket-sized personal protection device. PTI has a long history of producing non-lethal weapons for military, government, corrections, and major agencies, but the HotShot is the company's first product available to the public.

The HotShot is a lightweight, portable, and compact weapon that instantly bursts a large, visible cloud of powder irritate (up to 12 feet), which works immediately and overwhelmingly. It is unlike other pepper-based spray products that can take several minutes to properly administer and require accurate aiming. The HotShot is also hotter and more effective than pepper spray with its super hot capsaicin II pepper powder. Weighing only 3.4 ounces, the HotShot can easily be concealed and placed in a pocket, purse or backpack, making it ideal for college students and females when safety is threatened.

Since PTI's inception in 1999, the company has shown very steady growth and consequently felt there was a need and opportunity to create a personal protection product. According to PTI COO, Conrad Sun, "We have always done well in the institutional markets, but with petty crime on the rise around the country, we felt there was a real need for a consumer product that was easy to use, effective, and affordable, so we created HotShot." The HotShot is the next generation of personal protection products.

PTI has a full line of system launchers and projectiles for a variety of less-lethal applications. With over 15 million projectiles and 16,500 launchers sold since its inception, PTI personal defense systems have been proven to be highly effective and safe with no reported serious injuries. PTI supplies thousands of users and major agencies including the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the United States Border Patrol, police and sheriff departments, as well as private entities, security services and bail enforcement agencies around the world. For more information about PepperBall Technologies or how to purchase the HotShot, available as part of an introductory offer of $49.99, call 1-877-887-3773 or visit www.HotShotDefense.com.
