[SHOT 2023] PepperBall TRP, BLAST and VKS PRO PLUS Non-Lethal Launchers

For 2023, PepperBall has three new non-lethal launchers which they brought to the SHOT Show 2023. The TRP (Tactical Response Pistol) is a pistol-shaped launcher that can use round or VXR projectiles powered by either CO2 or N2 cartridges. The BLAST is a reloadable single-shot compact tubular launcher for close-range use that shoots a large powder load powered by a 1.8g N2 cartridge. The VKS PRO PLUS is an AR-shaped semi-auto launcher that comes with a 15 cubic inch 4500psi capacity carbon fiber tank, red dot sight and is compatible with gravity or electronic hoppers as well as round or VXR projectiles. Below you can find the pictures, tech specs and lists of features of all three new PepperBall launchers.
