Net Gun To Safely Capture Criminals

Intended for animals:

Hopefully they come out with a cartridge to fire gas (a la Darkwing duck).  As long as it’s gluten free, no GMO gas though.. wouldn’t want to hurt the criminal in the short or long-term.  This is a catch / rehabilitate / release type thing we’re doing remember?  Try and keep up guys. ;)

I always wanted to fire a net out of a gun at something… oh and a grappling hook!  I bet climbing up walls looks easier than it actually is though.

Net gun pricing starts at $1400 over at the Wildlife Capture website.   Aaaaaccckkkkkkk bullets are so much cheaper!  Also with a decently placed shot from a gun you’re completely avoiding potential net gun problems like dealing with a lawsuit when the criminal you captured takes you to court seeking damages for the net burn and emotional trauma. Mo’ net mo’ problems.

The “rapid assembly” demo looks a bit sped up.

Didn’t they have something like this in the movie, The Running Man, with Arnold getting netted on an airport tarmac?

Solid premise, but limited application. I see this useful for runners, but you’d have to be able to draw your incredibly oversized Maglite, aim, and fire in less time than it takes them to run 20 meters. Considering the Teuller Drill, that sounds easier said than done. And you still have to walk around with it hanging off your belt all day.

And let’s not forget how great our police force’s accuracy is. NYPD, looking in your general direction.

Still better than a tazer for the law enforcement trigger-happiness caused by less-than-lethal options. Not as effective a solution as, say, a foam rubber slug to the calf, in my opinion, but being physical harm-neutral is a plus for liability. Ugh, I can’t believe I just typed that.

As far as the engineering, i figured it was going to be something the size of a crossbow. I’m impressed they got it as small as they did, and it looks like it works.
