Law enforcement agencies in Tulia, Texas are looking to bring on a new gun that boasts greater accuracy and reliability than other weapons currently used by officers.

The JPX Cobra 450 shoots out a concentrated mist of OC solution made up of water and cayenne pepper. The mixture measures at 400,000 scoville heat units, several times hotter than a jalapeno pepper.

Already widely used in Europe, the gun has a laser point and an effective range up to 23 feet. The thick pepper agent shoots out at 400 miles per hour and takes effect within seconds, producing an intense burning sensation at the contact point.

In comparison, traditional pepper sprays are not as powerful, and less accurate than the JPX Cobra. The new weapon is also believed to be more effective than the taser, which often malfunctions when its the prongs dislodge. The taser also knocks people unconscious, causing them injury as they fall.

A shot aimed at the face is said to be completely incapacitating, with effects that last 30 to 45 minutes.
