Close Quarters

The CQ is a lightweight, hyper velocity design using an aluminum core and pre-stressed jacket. The aluminum core initiates the expansion slightly after contact, pressing back into the pre-stressed jacket and activating a violent, incapacitating energy transfer. The aluminum nose optimizes feeding and provides a barrier blind entry. The pre-stressed jacket separates into petals sized for appropriate penetration based on the specific cartridge. These petals, base, and core are all designed to penetrate no more than 18", transferring a huge amount of energy to the target in a very short timeframe. The design of the individual high mass/high energy petals overcome other designs that use powdered metal or plastic composite projectiles that disintegrate upon impact. The energy is there; our goal is to utilize every bit of it and dumping it all on the surface in a non-vital area is not appropriate for a personal defense design.
