O22 Weapons Specs.

by D Davies Thursday, Oct. 26, 2000 at 12:50 PM

Gun nuts will go ga-ga over these nifty specs on what was being shot at the people. The LAPD needs to learn to follow instructions! Do not fire directly at people!

After Los Angeles Street was reopened on 10/22 the following were recovered

from the street in front of Parker Center (LAPD Headquarter):



spent projectiles:



A. black, grape-sized hard rubber bullets



B. black dense-foam column discs with a hole through the center



C. black, hard-plastic cylinder (closed at the front end & with bull-nosed,

blue-rubber covered end



spent casings:



A. Defense Technologies No. 20F 37/38mm Multiple Baton Foam Rounds

(silver metal with black lettering)



B. Defense Technologies No. 28B 37/3mm Stingers

(black plastic with white lettering)



C. Defense Technologies No. 1006 40mm eXact iMpact (silver with black

lettering)



The names "Multiple Baton", "Stinger" & "eXact iMpact" might lead you to

believe these are intended for human targets. However, the "WARNING" on 20F

says:



"Do not fire directly at person(s) as serious injury or death could result"



The 28B casing reads:



1. Not intended to be fired directly at persons



2. Use only in accordance with manufacturer's instructions, and after

receiving proper training.



3. Misuse could result in serious physical injury or death.



The casings also all state "To be used only by law enforcement and

corrections personnel trained in riot control tactics" (No.1006 substitutes

"military" for "corrections").



Defense Technologies (a division of Armored Holding) is in Casper, Wyoming,

82602. The phone # is: 1(307) 235-6900 . Defense Technologies' Customer

Service Dept. is in Jacksonville, Florida. That toll-free number is:

1(800)428-0588. They send out weapons spec sheets on request.
