The Byrna HD is roughly the size of a compact 9mm handgun. We sell tactical holsters that have been custom designed to comfortably hold your Byrna HD as well as nylon holsters designed for compact 9mm handguns. Here is the product spec sheet for more information.
No. The Byrna HD is much more powerful than a paintball gun and will cause the paintball to rupture upon firing. This will permanently damage the Byrna HD. For this reason, you should not use the Byrna HD for paintball and using it with incompatible non-Byrna projectiles or CO2 canisters may void your warranty.
No. The Byrna HD should never be pointed or fired at the head, neck or back. When it is empty the force of the gas at close range, could cause serious injury or death.
Our Byrna HD Max Kits, Byrna HD Pepper Kits, and Byrna HD Kinetic Kits comes with two 8-gram Byrna CO2 cartridges. There is no standard size among suppliers so we recommend you use Byrna brand cartridges which may be purchased from our online store. Use of non-conforming cartridges may compromise your Byrna HD’s performance and may damage your Byrna HD, voiding your warranty.
Byrna CO2 cartridges have a virtually indefinite shelf life. The cartridge is not pierced until the trigger is pulled so you can always keep an un-punctured CO2 cartridge in your Byrna HD to maximize its utility for self-defense. The Byrna HD incorporates puncture technology to allow it to fire on the first trigger pull. We recommend loading a new CO2 cartridge after every sustained use of the Byrna HD because once the cartridge is punctured CO2 will leak out over a 24-hour period.
A single Byrna CO2 cartridge should consistently fire ten .68 caliber pepper-filled, inert, or training projectiles. It may fire up to 20 projectiles, but we recommend replacing the CO2 cartridge after 2 magazines for maximum performance.
