NET-2000 web-gun for nabbing criminals and pets
A non lethal gun isn’t something we see everyday, but a flashlight that is a net dispenser is extraordinary to write about. The NET-2000 Shooting Net Rod uses a charge of highly compressed air to fire a net at fleeing suspects from as far as 49 feet away. While it doesn’t spin a web of just any old size, it does fire a huge 52 square foot net made of high strength Nylon fiber. While the device may look like an innocuous flashlight when not in use, it sure packs a wallop when fired up.

In addition to law enforcement use, it’s designed for animal catchers to use in place of traditional manual nets. Importer Chinagrabber is selling the devices for just $419 a piece. This tool is surely handy when you want to catch the dog that dirties your yard red handed without fighting your neighbor.
