Life Gun / Life-saving Water Pistols

Life Gun

Life Gun

While playing by lakes, rivers, or the sea, children like to use water toys. But there's often no flotation device handy when someone is struggling to stay afloat, leading to risk of drowning. This was the inspiration for our life-saving product combining a water gun and life-saving equipment, which uses compressed air to squirt a fun beam of water. When someone is in danger of drowning, it can be switched to life-saving mode, which uses compressed air to quickly inflate life-saving flotation equipment. This emergency flotation equipment can be shot precisely to the area around the victim, helping the victim keep from drowning.
