Taser makes shocking shotgun

MADISON (WKOW) -- Taser International is developing a stun cartidge that can be used in 12 gauge shotguns.

The eXtended Range Electronic Projectile (XREP) first surfaced a few years ago as a less-lethal alternative for the Marine Corps, which wanted to use the shotgun cartridge during room-clearing operations to nab potential baddies. The device is a wireless shocking projectile with a max range of 100 feet, or roughly twice the effective range of other 12-gauge less-lethal munitions. Taser is not marketing a shotgun of their own to accompany the round.
