How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Some Border Patrol Agents to Begin Using Russian-Designed Pistol with Rubber Bullets

Authorities who protect the nation’s border have long used stun guns on smugglers, migrants and human traffickers.

But with so much open space on the Southwest border, the stun guns have posed a problem because they can only reached about eight to 10 feet, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Now Border Patrol agents with the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office will soon begin using the Osa handgun, a Russian-designed break-action pistol that fires rubber bullets.

“Illegal immigrants don’t generally have guns, but they could be throwing rocks,” said Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, who demonstrated the weapon’s accuracy by striking a target 15 feet away. “I’ve seen those incidents end with someone getting shot, someone getting killed.”

The sheriff said fewer people will die as a result.
