About the Byrna HD Personal Security Device
The Byrna HD is a disruptive new non-lethal device aimed at the home defense and personal security markets. Its small size (similar to popular lethal handguns on the market today), ease of obtaining, ease of carry, effectiveness in deterring or stopping an intruder and accessible price point (special Daytona packages start under $300) should be appealing to individuals who want protection, but either don't want the hassle of obtaining a gun license or don't want the risk of having a hand gun in their home, as well as to gun enthusiasts who appreciate a precision piece of equipment and want something in their collection that is both effective and non-lethal.
The Byrna HD comes with multiple easily reloadable magazines that can hold .68 caliber training rounds, impact rounds or highly effective payload rounds designed to burn an assailant’s eyes and respiratory system upon contact. Accurate up to 60 feet, the Byrna HD is fitted with a picatinny rail that allows owners to mount either a laser sight or flash light making it easy for novices to fire it accurately. The Byrna HD is ideal for today’s homeowners, boaters, truckers, outdoor enthusiasts and gun enthusiasts around the world. For more information on the Byrna, please click here.
The Byrna HD is not a “firearm” under federal law and does not require a federal gun license. State laws and local ordinances may regulate its possession, use, and carry in certain localities. More information on these types of regulations will be available on our website before the launch.
