SAINT-ETIENNE, FRANCE – The French Police use a non-lethal weapon called ‘Flash Ball’ in riots and other situations that don’t call for lethal force.
Flash Ball shoots tennis balls and other non-lethal projectiles created by Verney-Carron, a well known weapons manufacturing company in Saint-Etienne, France.
Eighty percent of its sale are outside of France and profits continue to grow as law enforcement trends towards non-lethal use as an alternative.
Ammunition: can shoot tennis balls, rubber balls, gas, fire suppressors.
