POTD: Czech Alfa Non-Lethal Revolvers

My good friend Gabor Vass, the Editor of Kaliber Magazine, sent us this photo of the Czech Alfa revolvers. What is interesting is that these are less-lethal revolvers made by a company that also manufactures normal (lethal) firearms. The models are the G020, G030, G030 (blued) and a G040.

They shoot solid rubber balls designed to inflict trauma, or rubber balls containing CS gas. These cartridges are very similar to regular firearm rounds, although they are low powered. Below is an example of a 9x22mm (9mm P.A.K) rubber ball cartridge …

Many European countries do not allow citizen to own pistols, or make it very hard to do so, but they do allow these rubber balls guns.

    Doesn't the Czech Republic have spectacular gun laws by European standards?
