Description: Hornet's Nest, .45cal. Rubber Projectile, 37/40 mm A direct fire 37/40 mm round which fires approximately 69 each, 14 grain, 80 durometer rubber projectiles. This round produces a painful and powerful blunt impact and was designed for single or multiple target engagement allowing escalation of force from a safe distance prior to use of lethal means. The HORNETS NEST was developed to overcome the shortcomings of conventional rubber ball ammunition. Most rubber ammunition is designed to be skipped off the ground into the target. This form of firing can be adversely affected by snow, mud, and soft grassy terrain. The HORNETS NEST is designed as a direct fire, behavior modification round which is fired using conventional target acquisition techniques. The HORNETS NEST can also be skip fired in close proximity situations. Potential Targets/Applications: Individual Targets, Suspect Apprehension, Prison/Civil Rioters, And Animal Control/Conditioning Primary Users: Law Enforcement, Military Incapacitation Mechanism/Technology: The HORNETS NEST launches approximately 69 each, 14 grain rubber projectiles, producing excruciating pain. The stinging effect caused is designed to result in behavior modifications or retreat away from officers or immediate response to issued commands. Physical Data: A.

Effect on target: Incapacitation caused by loss of breath, psychological effect, and/or pain and extreme discomfort. B. Time to Effect: Instantaneous C. Duration of Effect: Seconds to Minutes based on power factor, distance and location of strike. D. Effective Range: 10 yards to 17 yards Delivery Means: 37 mm gas gun / M203 launcher Operational Strengths: Uses standard issue gas guns or M203 launchers. Easy to train officers. Operational Limitations: Countermeasures: A. Shields, heavy flora, natural or man-made cover or concealment B. Weather/Environment Limitations: Dense fog limits target acquisition C. Legal, fratricide, multi-shot/recycle time, number of shots, shot/long term human effects: Gas guns can be recycled at 5 second intervals providing multiple target acquisition. Higher power factors may produce lethal trauma when vital areas are struck and energy imparted exceeds 90 foot pounds by causing massive skull fractures, rupture of vital organs, heart compression and or serious skin lacerations. Normal use may result in contusions, abrasions, broken ribs and concussions. Documentation Requirements: It is recommended that officers training records be annotated to indicate proper training of less lethal blunt impact munitions use has been accomplished. IMPORTANT NOTE: Never aim at or above the Sternum. Less Lethal Ammunition can cause contusions, abrasions, broken ribs, concussions, loss of eyes, superficial organ damage, serious skin lacerations massive skull fractures, rupture of the heart or kidney, fragmentation of the liver, hemorrhages, and death. Medical assistance should be contacted immediately after an actual deployment of a less lethal munition even if no physical injuries appear on subject or subjects. Penetration, though not a desired effect, can occur regardless of manufacturer or design
