What are Rubber Bullets?Rubber bullets
are rubber or rubber-coated projectiles fired from guns. For this either a
riot gun or standard firearms are used. Rubber bullet weapons are "less
than lethal devices" but can be dangerous enough to pierce skin. Rubber
bullets are non-lethal, when fired at short range and can be used for short
range target practice. These bullets are small enough to be fired from a
pistol (a rubber bullet pistol) or shot gun. Some other bullets are also
made from wood, wax or plastic.
There are various manufacturers, suppliers, wholesalers of rubber bullets
who are continuously working to improve bullet performance so as to attract
buyers. However, it is also very important to consider various aspects like
social and political considerations, health, safety, environmental issues
Rubber bullets cause pain without giving any serious injury. But these may
also lead to bone fracture, major injury to internal organ and even death.
Why are Rubber Bullets Used?
Rubber bullet weapons like rubber
bullet guns and pistols are not used for causing permanent damage. They are
such weapons that cause temporary discomfort to aroused people- like those
in mobs with dangerous intentions of harming people- so that these people
may be rendered ineffecient temporarily and could not harm anyone. Rubber
bullet weapons are therefore mainly used to control riots or for self
defence. Sometimes they are also used for recreational purposes.

- Riot Control: Rubber bullets are used in the defense industry
and by police who have guns that shoot rubber bullets. One frequently
hears of "rubber bullets" being used by police in riot-control
scenarios. Such projectiles when used within reasonable limits are an
effective means of riot control and to break up protests.
- Self Defence: Rubber bullets are also used by civilians for
self protection. Nowdays, in many homes, people tend to keep handguns
loaded with rubber bullets. Handguns are weak compared to shotguns and
rifles and they can be operated using mediocre ammunition like rubber
- Recreational Use: Rubber bullets are often used for
short-range indoor target practice or training. They are intended only
for target shooting. Rubber bullets, can also be recovered undamaged
after firing when used with a backstop. Such bullets can be re-used
Impact of Using Rubber Bullets Guns
Of all the materials used in
making bullets like lead, lead alloy, copper, alluminum, plastic, rubber
etc. rubber bullets are considered to be the non lethal and safest type of
bullet by police and defense force. However, this is not always true. As per
many study reports, guns that shoot rubber bullets used by police during
riot controls can cause severe injuries to people. This is because most of
these bullets, though are supposedly made of rubber are actually made of
metal, bonded with
. Thus when we talk about
rubber bullets, the term refers to both bullets made completely of rubber
and also bullets that are made of rubber on the outside and metal inside.
How Do Rubber Bullet Guns Work?
Rubber Bullets Guns make kinetic
impact munitions when used on the victim. This means they cause pain but not
serious injury. Some of the injuries caused by rubber bullets are as
- Abrasions (a wound causing superficial damage to the skin).
- Contusions (bruise).
- Hematomas (collection of blood outside the blood vessels)
- Bone fractures.
- Injuries to internal organs etc.
Thus rubber bullets cause pain without giving any serious injury. But
these may also lead to bone fracture, major injury to internal organ and
