Is it possible to fire with rubber bullets from regular handgun? Where to buy such bullets in Canada?
I am considering obtaining the firearms license in Canada.
I would like to buy real handgun, but apart real lead bullets I'd like to have a choice to fire with rubber bullets or tear gas bullets.
My questions are:
1. Any problems I can have with a regular gun (like Glock 17) if it's used with rubber bullets?
2. Where to buy rubber bullets / tear gas bullets in Canada? Or US? Let's say 9mm.
Rubber bullets probably won't cycle the slide but I know where you can find them the only problem is that you are going to have to load them yourself the link will take you right there
they are in 9mm .44 .45 Source(s): http://dillonprecision.com/template/p.cf...
If you go with a revolver instead of the autoloader, rubber bullets won't be a problem. You can load your own, although I'd hate to clean up afterwards. There may be some novelty load someplace for tear gas, but I've never heard of it. The idea is pretty silly. There's no way that tiny an amount would be useful even to irritate a cockroach. If you're buying a handgun for self-protection, get used to this: you should never fire it unless you want to put a hole in your target. There is no justification for shooting a person except those that justify lethal force, so if that's your intent for "non-lethal" projectiles, forget it. See about a taser or a baseball bat.
I don't believe tear-gas rounds exist. There are pepper(spray) rounds but they are only available to law enforcement. Do you just want this for non-lethal self defense or what are you looking for?
A handgun is a lethal weapon that should only be used when there is a clear and present threat to your life or that of your loved ones or other innocents.
Using a handgun for any other purpose in a defensive situation is foolhearty.
It should not be used to threaten, although the power of just being armed and demonstrating that fact has gotten me out of situations twice when acosted by men who intended to do me harm while taking my property.
To attempt to use a handgun to scare or wound will get you killed dead. If you do not have the will to take a life that's OK, but do not reach for the gun and do not plan on doing so.
Rubber bullets are actually lethal, just like blanks are lethal. Just type "Northern Ireland rubber bullets" and do your own research.
An industrial police type pepper spray or equivilent or a Taser sounds more like what you need. Someone may make tear gas bullets but their effectiveness in a handgun caliber is dubious.
There is such a thing as 'shot shells' which are like tiny little shotgun shells and while they will injure they will not inflict lethal wounds. They are used for pests like coyotes and I also use them in a revolver if I go hiking during snake season.
I am not aware of ay rubber bullets for handguns. They make them for 12 gauge shot guns but I believe they are law enforcement only.
They do make a barrel that fits into standard handguns, glocks, sigs that shoot what is called simunitions.
We use these for training purposes so we can use our actua duty weapons. They fire a colored soap pellet similar to a paintball gun.
I am not sure if this is available to non law enforcement either but it would probably be more available than rubber rounds.
Goodluck and Godspeed
Like stated above, a revolver will be the way to go not an autoloader. You may have to load yourself, which would make using it a risky affair if you are not an expert.
Most non-lethal rounds are meant to be fired from shotguns.
A company does manufacture a "pepper-ball" round filled with capsicum powder to be fired from .68 caliber paintball guns.
This will allow you to get a semi-auto pistol firing "tear-gas" rounds without the legal restriction of a true firearm. the legality of the ammunition may be a problem.
With all "non-lethal" ammunition one must remember that it can still kill if used improperly. I remember a story where a woman was killed by a rubber bullet by being shot in the eye.
