Home Defender – Less Than Lethal?

I don’t know about you guys, but if someone breaks into my house when I’m home I want them DEAD, not tickled by a cute soft ball with tentacles on it.

From the packaging:

“This may be the most intelligent way to defend your family against home intruders.”

Intelligent how?  It’s smart to let some scumbag that wants to steal your stuff and/or hurt or intimidate your family survive to do it again another day?  Interesting.

I could see its use in Law enforcement for crowd control.  But the home defense thing is just laughable in my opinion.  The only clear advantage I can see is that you wouldn’t have any collateral damage with this (because there would be NO damage) if 100% of your shot didn’t hit the bad guy.

Then again, the perp might die of embarrassment when his jail buddies learn he was neutralized by by a Skoosh.

heheh yea. That would probably be his jail nickname too!

I know of a few people who have a nonlethal shell loaded before the real shell. Tell the intruder the next ones real. If they don’t listen the second will get the job done. Given the choice I’d rather not have someone dead by my own hands even if it is an intruder.

That’s precisely what I was thinking. One warning, and if they want to risk it, then adios.

That koosh ball would be much cooler….

if it were made of steel.

This is the European answer to self defense, which is to say little if any defense or the nanny-state version of it. I am with you, if you enter my home, I don’t want to worry about the batteries or where is my watch so I can use my gun. Or the fact the little squshy balls aren’t going to stop them, just tick them off even more.

No, I am going to stop them,and that will result in the bad guy feeling some real pain and bleeding some real blood, which might result in them dying.

I believe it was the Italian political strategist Niccolo Machiavelli who stated something to the effect that only a suicidal fool would seek to inflict a minor wound upon a deadly adversary.
In my humble opinion, only a fool would waste money on something like this.

But they’re sooo cuuute!

Anyway, everyone, clearly the koosh-gun needed some work so I spent the year perfecting the idea. I made a modified potato cannon that fires kittens! That’s right they’re cute AND pointy. Problem solved.
