Please contact us if you cannot find an answer to your question.
Is the Byrna a firearm?
The Byrna Launcher is not considered a firearm; however, it is not a toy! It is a highly effective less-lethal self-defense device.
Is the Byrna legal in all 50 states?
While it is legal to carry a Byrna in all 50 states*, it should only be used for lawful purposes, including self-defense. Like any other weapon, be it a hammer, knife, or baseball bat, the Byrna should never be brandished or used threateningly.
How long will the C02 cartridge last?
With the Byrna patented “1st shot pull-pierce” technology, the Byrna is always ready to use. You can leave it on your nightstand, glove box, or by your front door for days, weeks, months, or even years, and it will always be ready to fire on the first pull of the trigger.
