    So I sat through the Longest Yard remake with Adam Sandler. In the movie there was a fight in the cafeteria so one of the guards throws a riot control grenade into the crowd. The grenade basically blows up and shoots rubber balls all over the place. The directors commentary says they're actually used in prisons?!?! Any one comment? I find it hard to believe that you'd throw something like that into a crowd and risk maiming and injuring folks, even if they're prisoners.

    We used them in the jail I used to work at. They're called 'Stingballs'. They use a relatively small explosive charge to hurl rubber pellets all over the inside of a tank. They're very effective and are considered non-lethal.

    We tested them. Trust me. There is no where you can be in a tank where you will not get pelted. They are fantastic.

    Thats really cool. Was going to ask if anyone could buy them, but then actually went to the website and saw that they incorporate flashbang aspects.

    These things are pretty neat, too.

    Stingball grenades. Also comes in 12-gauge and 37mm versions.

    You can also get a version of the stingball grenade that contains powdered capsicum along with the rubber balls.

    We had a couple of those too.

    Also...my personal favorite...Jaycor Tactical Systems .68 caliber 'Pepperballs'. Imagine a paintball, only with a hard shell and powdered oleoresin capsicum inside.

    Not really meant for shooting at people, but rather say, at a doorjamb just ouside a cell.

    Nasty little buggers.

    I have no problem with using sting nades on rioting prisoners. We
    need a version that will work in mk19 grenade launchers. In fact,
    I'd have no problem using them the next time people are running
    around looting businesses and setting private homes on fire.

    We dont have or use them at my unit, but ADC does use them.
    I believe to purchase it has to be on letterhead with a intent of use letter filed with the feebs. Don't take my word for it though, just seems to be what I was told.

    And boy do they work! Inmates HATE grenades, whether stingball, CS, or OC. One of our tactical team got zapped with a stingball accidentally in training - he said it felt like someone punched him HARD in the back.

    I much prefer the M26 or M67's.
    Much more effective and less expensive too.

    I work in a Maximim Security Juvenile Correctional Facility, I need to get one of those for when the little A** grabbers get into one of their all out cell block brawls. However, since the department of child services are such advocates for child safty, we dont even get batons or any self defence tools. Granted they are childeren but they are children that murder and rape women,ect. So I say treat them like the big boys even if they are just 15years old.
