RESD PDG-S5

Our next Less Lethal Alternative bit of technology looks as if it were drawn straight out of a Judge Dredd comic book and comes to us all the way from Russia. A company in Russia called ( by it’s english name), Electro Shock Technologies, has been busy developing a new ECD device that allows it’s user up to 10 shots and is clip fed like a traditional firearm. This is exciting news because up until recently ECDs were only single shot devices. The RESD PDG-S5 is built on an ambidextrous pistol platfrom, allowing for both left and right handed operators. This Russian ECD features a tactical rail for mounting accessories like flashlights or cameras and has a button to trigger drive stun operation like a traditional stun gun. Get ready for this next bit of information, it will blow your socks off….. The operational range of the RESD PDG-S5 is up to 50 feet, unheard of in American ECDs. The wires projected from the cartridges are not insulated like the ones of a Tazer thus it allows for the user to drag the wires from point A to point B, if a second attacker tries to charge he will meet the “electrified fence effect.” The unit comes with a built-in laser for better target acquisition. I have contacted the manufacturer to see how the American consumer might be able to get their hands on the RESD PDG-S5, I will keep you posted when I find out more.
