If you are looking to incapacitate an assailant without a fatal outcome the new Jet Protector is a perfect solution to keep you and your loved ones safe. It is a non-lethal weapon and should only be used for self defense.
The handling of the Jet Protector JPX is similar to a handgun, but for most it is much easier to use. The device is operated by pulling the trigger. If you pull the trigger, the internal mechanism then cocks the striker which will be released after passing the trigger point.
The inflammatory agent fired from the Jet Protector JPX is Oleoresin Capsicum (OC) or what is commonly known as pepper spray. When fired, the Protector's pepper spray is immediately effective upon contact with the face of the aggressor. The high velocity of the liquid jet as well as the inflammatory effects of the pepper spray will instantly stop or at the very least, interrupt forward movement.
Each cartridge (two per magazine) fires the exceptionally potent pepper spray at 270 mph with a distance of over 20 feet, but be warned the minimum safe discharge distance is 5 feet from the tip of the magazine to the target. Each magazine contains two charges with a much larger payload than the PepperBlaster, and quickly snaps on the frame of the gun
Pepper Spray (OC) is an extract of the cayenne pepper plant. Pepper spray is believed to be the most effective inflammatory agent available today and is successfully used by law enforcement professionals around the world.
The cartridge of the Jet Protector magazine contains 10% pepper spray. The agent is toxic when inhaled, swallowed, or put within contact with the skin or eyes.
Once the aggressor is shot in the eyes with the Jet Protector, his eyes will immediately shut. The high velocity of the jet ensures that the agent will make its way behind glasses, through cloth masks, and other masks with eye openings. The pepper spray should cause temporary blindness which could last up to 30 minutes. Symptoms should then begin to disappear, usually with no after-effects.
If the pepper spray makes contact with your eyes, flush with cold water for 15 minutes. If the irritation or discomfort persists for more than 60 minutes then seek medical attention.
The makers of the Jet Protector JPX say the power of each payload combined with reloading makes the JPX extremely effective for crowd control, as the conventional double action only trigger automatically resets to fire the other charge.
The Jet Protector is water resistant and both light weight and compact. The gun is just over 7 inches in length and under 4 inches in height. Orange or black gun frames are available, plus an integral laser sight is optional. There is also a black holster available.
The magazines are sold separate from the gun frame and there is a training magazine available that is filled with blue food grade marker dye. There are two charges per magazine. In addition, the Jet Protector JPX comes with a one year operating mechanism warranty.
The Jet Protector JPX is one of the most functional and powerful hand-held pepper spray delivery system available today. If you are interested in this self-defense mechanism please visit the Home Security Store.
