I don’t recall in any of my Law Enforcement use-of-force incidents thinking, “Man…if I only had some laser guided Tabasco sauce, I could end this thing now without risking contamination to myself or uninvolved citizens.” But with as many times as I’ve had to decontaminate myself after having incidental contact with pepper sprayed subjects I wonder why I didn’t envision a solution to the over spray problem. Well, for you forward thinkers who have dreamed about the usefulness of a device capable of delivering a surgically precise squirt of that liquid compliance we professionally refer to as OC spray, you need not dream about it any longer. The JPX pepper gun now brings mechanical precision and limited cross contamination to the world of cayenne pepper fruit weaponization.
What makes the JPX different is the way in which the cayenne pepper oil is delivered to the target. All other delivery systems make use of a propellant to aerosolize the pepper to move it from the can to the face of an aggressor, leaving much of the pepper crop dusted – floating in the air – like spray paint. The JPX however moves just the pepper oil itself in the form of a liquid projectile keeping it from affecting anyone but the end user.
The ‘JP’ in JPX is short for ‘Jet Protector’ the ‘X’ stands for irritant, and the ‘O’, which is not an official designation for the JPX but if it was would stand for, “Oh what I would give for a time machine to go back and comply with this officers polite and reasonable request.”
