"Kill Deer" or "Stun Bunny"--Your Choice


A gun that fires variable speed bullets and which can be set to kill, wound or just inflict a bruise is being built by a US toy manufacturer. The weapon is based on technology used to propel toy rockets.

...The new weapon, called the Variable Velocity Weapon System or VWS, lets the soldier to use the same rifle for crowd control and combat, by altering the muzzle velocity. It could be loaded with "rubber bullets" designed only to deliver blunt impacts on a person, full-speed lethal rounds or projectiles somewhere between the two.

Send a warning or send "good-bye."

I'm pretty sure hillbillies hold the patent on Variable Weapons Systems, having ingeniously swapped the buckshot from their shotgun shells with rock salt for shootin' revenoors in a non-lethal manner.

Ah, the good ol' days...

This is way cooler than that. This is like a push-to-pass system. Just add a little bit to cut through the brush, so to speak.
