Bad guys carry guns too. If your life is being threatened, you’ll more than likely loose if you are depended on a device such as this.


The halls of history are littered with “good inventions.” And there are reasons for that.


Hi Roy – thanks for the comment – it reminds us everyday we have risk running a new business. Its not easy to take an idea like this through design prototypes and production, then through distribution. The financial cost is a considerable investment. We really run our business based on our mission to save lives and bring products to the market that people will catch on to. So far we are making a difference. Reach out to us – we need more smart people that care about the non-lethal space. David


If a crowd of a hundred “peaceful protestors” tries to pull you out of your car and introduce you to the joy of skateboarding, I wouldn’t want to bet my life on this. I think I’ll stick to the real deal.


Mike11c – We are in full support of both lethal protection and non-lethal. We know there are instances where non-lethal will not be a perfect solution, but we believe that having a solution (like non-lethal) is better and more effective than having nothing at all. We are focused on creating a way for people to learn and carry. Its important to us, and our customers. Maybe you would consider connecting with us and providing some more feedback when you practice with our products? We would like that.


You may as well shoot an attacker with a firearm as shoot them with this thing. In most states, the penalties for illegal use are the same.


(nobodyyuknow) Great name ! We observe the states that restrict pepper spray, the state restrictions for non-lethal carry are on our home page and our ordering page restricts a few states – but in almost all states Pepper Spray is legal with some restrictions – like age, volume of Pepper, felons can not carry, sold only by a reseller. I think there are 10 states that have some of these restrictions , it varies. I spend a lot of time at the range – and can tell you I’d rather pull one of these non-lethals out – where it meets… Read more »

MSRP ~$290-330, Refills ~$15.


Dave in Fairfax – Hello and thank you for posting!
We are a small business- new manufacturing company and have a lot to learn in this industry and building relationships with media groups. Ammoland is a highly respected group and that why we are following up with you and your loyal fans.

Our established retail is $289.00. We often offer coupons and monthly give aways and sometimes free add ons.

I’d like to offer our services and products for a deeper non-lethal insight – let me / us know where we can help.



Looks like a poorly thought out copy of the $49.95 Kimber pepper blaster.
Is shouldn’t be long before Kimber files for patent infringement. I wouldn’t buy as support will probably be nonexistent.


Thanks for the feedback about our Hero2020 non-lethal, I think we need to do a better job at getting our story out, as we have worked really hard for over 2 1/2 years on our own product patents, engineering every part and piece of these new and different products. We have built these products to save lives and provide personal confidence in maintaining our active life styles. Its easy online to beat up new products – and we need this community to give us a fair opportunity to let customers review our products , share their opinion and personal stories.… Read more »
