US Soldiers In Iraq Get Wicked Paintball Guns – FN303

Military Paintball Gun

First off, where can I get one of these bad boys?  Looks like our tax dollars are now buying beefed-up paintball guns for our soldiers in Iraq.  The new gun, known as the FN303 or Individual Serviceman Non-Lethal System (ISNLS), shoots a 6.5 gram shell containing a mixture of paint and bismuth (a brittle metal made to fragment).

To give you an idea of how “beefed-up” this gun is… a regular paint gun shoots at about 400 pounds per square inch, while the ISNLS is regulated at about 900 PSI.  Mix that with “fragmenting” metal and I seriously wonder how “non-lethal” this thing is… ouch!
