Press Release

LAKE FOREST, Ill. — PepperBall® proudly announces features its latest innovations in non-lethal response tools – the PepperBall BLAST and its advanced variation, the BLAST-GB with a glass-breaking tip. These breakthrough products offer unparalleled advantages in close-range engagement and control, marking a significant leap forward in law enforcement and correctional capabilities. Both versions of the BLAST will be on display at the PepperBall SHOT Show booth 72205, Las Vegas, NV, Jan 23-26, 2024.

Unmatched Close-Range Effectiveness: PepperBall BLAST

Designed for close-range situations, the PepperBall BLAST sets a new standard for non-lethal response. Compact and easily carried in a holster on the vest or hip, or by its convenient clip, it’s a dependable option for officers requiring an immediate response solution. The one-handed operation of the BLAST is a game-changer, allowing officers to maintain a free hand for defense or to manage their environment, while simultaneously deploying a powerful burst of LIVE-X PAVA powder.

With an effective range of up to 10 feet, the BLAST is ideal for various scenarios, from daily patrol to cell extractions and CERT team operations. Powered by a 1.8g N2 cartridge, each reloadable BLAST delivers up to three projectiles worth of PAVA or inert powder, ensuring readiness in any situation.

Innovative Features for Optimal Performance

The BLAST™ incorporates state-of-the-art features:

  • A glass-filled nylon body for durability.
  • A convenient metal clip for easy carry.
  • A quick flip safety ensuring secure handling.
  • An effective range of up to 10 feet, ideal for close-quarter engagements.

Introducing the PepperBall BLAST-GB: Enhanced Glass-Breaking Option

Building on the foundation of the BLAST, the BLAST-GB introduces a crucial addition – a tungsten carbide glass-breaking tip. This additional feature enhances the tool’s utility in situations where breaking through glass barriers is essential, without compromising the non-lethal nature of the device.

Commitment to Non-Lethal Effectiveness

Both BLAST products are designed with the dual goal of maximizing effectiveness while minimizing the risk of serious injury. This commitment to non-lethal solutions aligns with the needs of modern law enforcement and corrections, providing tools that are both safe and effective for a range of scenarios.
