When compared to other self defense and home defense options, especially firearms, Pepperball and its associated products like the LifeLite launcher are extremely safe.
Intended to deter a threat through the use of PAVA, a synthetic irritant that mimics the effects of pepper spray but able to be applied to threats at much greater range, the effects of pepperball exposure are non-lethal and seldom last more than an hour.
Pepperballs are non-flammable and non-explosive and can be stored at room temperature. Propellants like the CO2 cartridges used to provide power to propel a Pepperball when fired from a launcher should also be stored at room temperature but are non-flammable and non-explosive.
According to Pepperball, there has never been a recorded fatality directly related to the use of Pepperball products. *Peppberball projectiles and launchers may be restricted in some states, check local laws.*
