This pistol generates a focused concentrated sonic pulse able to incapacitate a human being for a short period of time. It's effective range is about fifty meters but can still be disorienting to targets up to a hundred meters away. It's rigged up to fire semi-automatically (one pull of the trigger per shot). It is powered by a power cell in it's grip with enough power for thirty six shots. Such weapons are a major boon to police in place of firearms or single shot tasers. Weapons such as this are a major boon to police officers as well as security guards. They are also often used by private citizens for personnel defense and are considered much better at the role than firearms as they don't kill suspected assailants.
