Pepper balls from RAP4 arrive broken

The pepper balls are shipped in tubes of 10 balls per tube. Nothing is put into the tubes to prevent balls from hitting each-other during shipment. Bubble pack outside does not stop it. Bottom ball in all tubes arrives completley broken, pepper piled in bottom, and has migrated to all remaining balls.
Anyone know how to get such balls from tubes to marker (TPiX) magazine without eye-nose-hands-throat problems.

Unless you are a Law Enforcement Officer, or Animal Control officer, "Pepper Balls" should not be used, and are concidered to be on par with Pepper Spray in some states. Under no circumstances should they EVER be used in a paintball game, or against any human or animal that is not ATTACKING you.

What he said. Oleresin capcasin is volatile stuff. Use gloves, a fills face mask ventilator, and clothing you want to discard. Gloves are a give in.

Also, Pepper Balls are NOT to be used for home defense. that would be just like taking Mace or Pepperspray and spraying it around your home. not only will it incapacitate the intruder, but most likely you as well. Call RAP4 and see if you can get a refund.

mace is classified as a type of tear gas whereas pepper spray is an inflammatory agent and have different affects on a person

i believe mace is also fully made of manmade chemicals as opposed to pepper spray which contains natural ingredients

Logic suggests the replacements will break as did the originals. The vendor who sold them to RAP4 has an inadequate packaging method. Am waiting for RAP4 reply to my email re the problem.

Leave it out and let it dry, pepper spray is activated when in liquid form, if you let it dry it wont cause problems unless you get in on your skin and sweat. If you get if on your hands by accident wash with water for a few minutes it burns a lot but wont do any damage and then cool your hands off in cold milk or yogurt.

^This, and also Johnson's baby oil. If you get any on you, be careful what you touch in the shower. reflashes suck enough.

And make sure to work on it outside haha. That stuff has a surprisingly strong area affect.

RAP4 answered wmc123 and recommends putting on rubber/latex gloves and a dust mask when disposing of cracked pepper balls. If the remainder of the pepper rounds have some pepper residue on them after removing from the tube, then wipe each round off with a damp paper towel. RAP4 has addressed their method of shipping the pepper rounds and steps are already being taken to find a solution to fix that problem. You should always have the magazine completely loaded before inserting rounds into your paintball marker to decrease the chance of having a round break in the chamber. You should load a few rubber rounds into the magazine first before loading pepper rounds.

It's illegal up there? In Georgia all the teenage girls walk around with pepper spray on their key chains. It certainly makes for an interesting cross country practice though.
