Wherever you get them, be sure to stay way from anything firequest sells or makes, their stuff is crap, and usually sold more for "wow" factor than actual usefulness, I know for a while steller and bellot rubber ball ammo was available from a number of sources including cheaper than dirt

Here's a source of the "tail stabilized" round. One really has to want these pretty bad as they are just under $8 EACH.

<broken link removed>

Just remember, bean bag rounds are just less lethal than the real thing. With their inherent inaccuracy, compared to other projectiles, one runs the risk of placing a "less lethal" round in a "very lethal" spot.

Same rules usually apply for the use of a bean bag round as those for any use of deadly force.

All of the LTL ammo I've dealt with has been pretty quiet compared to it's full powered counterparts. I've had to use LTL fiocci buckshot on wildlife in my area (usually aggressive raccoons looking to eat free dog food, and make a nest in my attic). Never had the cops show up afterwards. I suppose if I used it on a person, I would probably call the politzei for a pickup.

Have you considered that maybe "gunfire" is not all that uncommon now in Southern California? One or two shots don't garner the attention that they once might have?

True. One of my friends decided to move to NE side of Portland, around Alberta st, and he wanted to see how bad it was in that part of town. So he walked outside with his Dan Wesson .357 and popped a couple shots in the air. Then walked backed inside put his revolver away, grabbed a beer, then sat on his porch and waited... nothing. no one came, no police cruiser or anything. Crazy I think. I thought an interceptor would at least show up to look for a dead body. But nothing. That's Portland for you though.

Sorry, I forgot to mention, he was a combat medic in the army and went to Iraq for two terms/years. or whatever however long they get sent out there for. He has seen his fair share of death of friends and foes. He's kind of a crazy guy, but he was always a little off even before he joined the service. Even then I would never do anything like that. But I haven't been through war and what not. I still have his sergeants blood worn boots sitting in my garage. Crazy Crazy
