I don't think you can buy those, like said.

However you can buy pre-made paintball halves and fill them with whatever you want. They are then sealed together without any really special equipment.

Expensive though. The 'halves' cost something like 50 cents each and you have to buy a hundred. Or something...been a while since I saw them.

why would they use water as a fill? who do they think they are brass eagle? :dodgy:
You got to think, they are used for law enforcement, or training. The water ones could be used for training or as a less extreme choice for repelling people than the pepper spray ones.

"PepperBall Launchers fire projectiles at a muzzle velocity of 350 to 380 feet per second." ~pepperball.com

WTF?! ouch! ok, so lets imagine this... a kid is at your local field, shooting way high, and then shoots you three times...

then imagine it's got pepperball fills...

here's what i'm thinking... they dont need those pepperball fills for taking people down... just shoot them a couple times at that speed and they'll give up real quick..

Most normal people, yes, but what about ridiculously desperate people/people on drugs? Getting shot by paintballs going 380 would hurt like a ***** but it probably wouldn't incapicitate someone.

that's true.

but for the most part, it's for riot patrol - which is usually just a bunch of drunk people... not people on drugs - but i definitly see where you're coming from.

i think they would indeed qualify under group of 'ridiculously desperate people!' lol.

I saw a show on either the Discovery Channel or some other channel about all these special types of weapons the law enforcment and military used, and could be the future of some stuff.

They showed the Pepperballs and yeah when they said shooting over 300 fps i was like what? No way. But they said they dont use the Pepperballs a whole not anymore becuase sometimes officers would miss when fighting riots and hit people in the face, eyes, bla bla bla and they would get seriously hurt or die which they dont want.

They did test the pepperballs on eachother and you have to hit people right in the chest for them to get the fumes in their face without shooting them in the face. They were also standing like 20 feet away with only basicly saftey glasses to protect their face lol.

I got sprayed with mace the other day and god that stuff is no joke. It cleared my sinus's out for me though.
About two years ago I was on the internet in my dad's room, and reached on the floor and found this thing. I thought it was a lighter, and it had a button, so I pulled it. I ended up shooting myself right in the face with pepper spray, and I freaked out, good on the floor and puked, and then passed out. And then my dad came up, and the pepper spray was still around, and it got in his throat too, and he started getting sick. So my mom came home a few hours later to find me and my dad passed out on her bedroom floor.

She called 9-11.

My dad and I were both OK, and I was grouned for a month afterwards :hug:

Yep, everyone remember this one?

It must have been on every paintball forum I've seen.
