We at SRI are strong supporters of the 2nd amendment. However, we believe it is time for law-abiding Americans to have a safe, effective and non-lethal choice for defending themselves. We strongly believe that the best answer to "gun control" is to give people non-lethal options.
Americans should continue to have the right to own and carry lethal arms for hunting and self-defense. They should also have the right to own and carry non-lethal weapons.
Tasers®, stun guns, and pepper spray are generally safe, and can be effective under certain situations, but many citizens are looking for a better solution with sufficient stopping power to disable an assailant. We believe that smart, non-lethal, hand-held weapons such as SmartRounds™ offer that solution, and will give them a better choice.
The SmartRounds™ pistol launcher (SP18) under development is a patent-pending semi-automatic, aluminum and polymer body 18mm pistol. The pistol holds two smart bullets. Because it uses a small amount of gunpowder to fire the light-weight rounds the recoil is very low and the sound relatively quiet. It is specifically for firing only our smart rounds. It is the perfect self-defense weapon for students, teachers, office workers, and homeowners, and it is small enough to conceal carry.
