Taser shotgun

Engadget is reporting that Taser will be releasing a shotgun model of their popular non-lethal arsenal.  Apparently the shotgun will be effective to a 30 meter range and the projectiles will not be tethered to the unit as they are in the handgun model.

I’m guessing that Taser is introducing this size weapon to compete with the current arsenal of shotgun-size non-lethal weapons that fire beanbags and rubber balls or pellets.

I’ve seen people shot by Taser weapons and it’s certainly not an experience that I would want to have, though I bet that it’s better than being shot with a bullet.
