Desperately want to tase someone until they lose control of their bowels, but too lazy to get within a couple feet of them? Or ever thought “Hey, I sure like tasing people, but wish I could also knock them over with the force of a shotgun blast to the chest?”
Well, that’s the idea behind Metal Storm’s new MAUL taser shotgun.Yep, it’s a 12-gauge shotgun that fires up to five “TASER eXtended Range Electronic Projectile Cartridges” or “XREPs,” which is a very fancy way of saying it can shoots self-contained TASERs into people 100 feet away.
Metal Storm’s brochure describes the shells as using “Neuro Muscular Incapacitation” to “temporarily overide the command and control systems of the body to impair muscular control,” which is a really fancy way of saying targets fall on the ground and crap themselves. The shotgun’s designed to be used on it’s own or slung under a combat rifle like a regular shotgun.
So, to sum up, the only thing cooler than a TASER is five TASERS… that you can shoot directly into people’s faces.
