With the sale of self-defense accessories skyrocketing through Europe, the Umarex group follows the trend by launching the Walther PDP self-defense pepper spray at the IWA expo in Nuremberg.
The Walther PDP pepper spray emitter is made in plastic, and developed in collaboration with Walther; it mimics the look and feel of a pocket pistol, using Walther's own ergonomic pistol grip design, a grip safety and a smooth trigger. It is available in black, white, or pink for those legislations where carrying objects that look like firearms in public is an offence.
The Walther PDP is a rechargeable emitter: the barrel tilts open to accept a Walther ProSecur spray canister, offering up to six shots if the trigger is pulled briefly or a continuous stream for three to five seconds if the trigger is fully squeezed. Recharges are freely available, and so are water cartouches for training.
The Walther ProSecur spray offers a dense formula for prolonged effect, and is added with an non-toxic, harmless UV-reactive nanoparticles that will allow law enforcement to identify an attacker with a simple UV light even should he or she attempt to wash the spray away after the assault.
