Flare Gun for Emergency Signal or Defense

While not the most accurate, and certainly not what they are designed for, a Marine or Aviation Flare Gun can not only signal for emergencies but can be used for defense and can inflict a serious, if not deadly, injury to an attacking predator (animal or human).

There are actually third-party accessories made for a flare gun for improving it for defensive purposes. You will need to search the web.

Naturally, the ATF is aware of this capability and has issued this warning bulletin.
