Alternative Ballistics Corporation (“ABC,” the “Company,” “we,” “our”) is a next generation less-lethal technology company organized in August 2020 that specializes in the production and distribution of a unique single-fire less-lethal impact munition, known as THE ALTERNATIVE® - to lethal force. Our product is currently available exclusively to the professional markets.
The Alternative® is a kinetic energy impact munition that is comprised of a lightweight specialized alloy projectile and plastic docking unit that is stored in a small holster on a duty belt, vest, or thigh holster. It attaches to an officer’s service weapon within seconds for a seamless deployment, and it uses bullet capture technology and kinetic energy to impact its intended target with less-lethal force.
Once The Alternative® is attached and fired by an officer, the bullet welds inside the projectile forming a new munition that is propelled downrange at approximately 20% the velocity of a standard bullet. Upon impact, The Alternative® is designed to incapacitate an individual while posing very little risk of death or critical injury, allowing the officer to safely affect an arrest.
The ALTERNATIVE® is accurate and effective at distances up to 40 feet, and once deployed, the officer’s service weapon instantly returns to lethal capacity as a new round is chambered for follow-up shots, if necessary, providing a broad range of protection for the officer at all times.

Extensive R&D and multiple rounds of ballistics testing over the course of several years have resulted in the unique technology of THE ALTERNATIVE® an extremely efficient, accurate, and effective solution that can be deployed at longer ranges to preserve life and provide broad protection for its operators. It is the only technology in the market that converts a firearm into a less-lethal device, and the Company has implemented an aggressive domestic and international portfolio strategy to protect its intellectual property on a global scale. The Alternative® current units are compatible with the most used firearms in U.S. police departments, such as the Glock 17 and 19, CZ P-10, Smith & Wesson M&P, and Sig Sauer P229. The projectile is compatible with 9mm and .40 caliber ammunition. New docking unit molds are under development for the Sig Sauer P320, FN 509, Beretta APX and the Walther P99, and the molding can be designed at a significant cost to fit any firearm, if warranted by an appropriate level of demand.
THE ALTERNATIVE® will provide officers with a tool that is comparable to the commonly used 40mm less-lethal munitions rifle, however in contrast, THE ALTERNATIVE® is an effective solution that’s readily available on the officer’s duty belt, rather than a separate device that they must call in and wait for to arrive on the scene. By design, THE ALTERNATIVE® bridges this critical gap by eliminating the time it takes for back-up to arrive and transition to an external platform for deployment. THE ALTERNATIVE® can deploy less-lethal force within seconds (instead of minutes) and allows the officer to keep their firearm in hand, should the need arise for lethal force.
