Taser Shotgun

Taser's electrifying new XREP shotgun-fired projectile - Engadget
The new XREP, which stands for Extended Range Electro-Muscular Projectile, contains a fully functional Taser circuit payload inside the shell housing for a 12-gauge shotgun, which is apparently among the most common "shoulder fired launchers" in use by law enforcement and military personnel. Unlike handgun-style Tasers, there is no wire tethering the payload to the gun, which allows for a 30-meter range but takes away the shooter's ability to lead the "non-compliant" around on a de facto leash.

W00t! More taser goodness. It is a shame you lose the "leash", but 30 meters is a hell of a stand off distance.
