*The 3553 Sting-Ball launches multiple .31 caliber rubber projectiles (180 approximately) to affect a general area. The shot pattern of the projectiles will increase over distance. General accuracy and effectiveness is relative to the launcher, barrel length, environmental conditions, the operator, distance, thickness of clothing and the stature of the human target.

Skip firing, aiming the impact munitions toward the ground 3’-10’ (1-3 meters) in front of a crowd is an option that should be given strong consideration with these munitions. Skip firing attenuates some of the blunt trauma on the target and reduces the possibility of impacting the human target above the belt line. Do not skip fire on surfaces, such as grass or sand.

CAUTION: Dispersion of the projectiles creates a greater risk of eye injury, and requires the operator to target a low point of impact, below the belt line, on human targets.
