B&T At B&T Police & Military Day 2015 (Part II)

TFB friend Lionel attended the recent B&T Police & Military Day 2015 event, and covered some of the products exhibited there. Show host B&T had on display their less lethal ammunition and accessories for 40mm grenade launchers, including vests and grenade holsters. Lionel writes:

B & T company presented their range of less lethal ammunition
In addition to these munitions was presented interesting solutions for the port of 40 mm ammunition as the jacket Cordura carrying ammunition horizontally (even large grenades). But also ammunition holder which attach tothe thigh can contain 5 or 11 grenades.

Due to their low muzzle velocity enabled by the cartridge’s hi-lo pressure system, 40mm grenades are an ideal host for a variety of nonlethal and less lethal ammunition, including capsaicin, tear gas, rubber buckshot, and even stun gun projectiles.

Thanks, Lionel!
