Pellet guns

 Pellets guns are a form of non-lethal crowd control methods used by police and military worldwide. They are loaded with lead and once fired they disperse in huge numbers. They don’t follow a definite path. The other popular methods are tear gas, water cannon, pepper spray, taser guns, etc. 

Pellets guns are intended to injure individuals and cause pain. They are effective over short ranges up to 500 yards but when fired from close quarters can be lethal, particularly when sensitive parts like eyes are hit. 

Pellet maims a person forever. Pellets are loaded with lead and once fired they disperse in huge numbers, and penetrate the skin’s soft tissues, and eye being the delicate structure is the most vulnerable to damage. Once the pellet goes inside an eye it shatters tissues and causes multiple damages to all parts of the eye.
