Lamperd Less Lethal Announces ATF Approvals for Importation of Firearms, Ammunition and Implements of War to the United States

Police Training Courses Continue to Fill to Capacity and Product Line Expanding Including a new 37mm Tear Gas Breaching Round  

SARNIA, Ontario, Nov. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Lamperd Less Lethal, Inc. (OTC PINK: LLLI), an innovation leader and manufacturer of advanced security solutions for law enforcement, military and security agencies worldwide, has just received notification from the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that formal approval has been granted to import many of Lamperd's most important products into the United States, effective immediately. The specific approval was for an Application and Permit for Importation of Firearms, Ammunition and Implements of War (OMB No. 1140-0005). 

The approval process was a long and meticulous route, started in 2017, which was sponsored and guided to successful completion by one of Lamperd's most important distributors, American Reserve Munitions (www.americanreservemunitions.com) headed by ARM's President Mike Bailey. Lamperd products were granted this approval largely because we were able to furnish extensive research data and reports from accredited institutions to fully validate the high quality, consistency, reliability and safety of our products. With the ATF importation approvals granted, Lamperd Less Lethal is in a position to supply some of the most advanced and valuable security products to the very large marketplace of the United States for the benefit of all its many law enforcement, military, corrections and other peace keeping forces.   

We are also pleased to report that new product orders continue to be booked, including increasing orders for our proven Interlocking Riot Shields from police departments in the United States. One reason for these rising orders is the training program we have begun this year under the administration of our VP of Training, Chief Ed Bogats, Jr., PhD who is based in Pittsburgh, PA. These training courses are being filled to capacity by police officers, because of the high level of instruction and certification that we can provide. Attendees are also very interested in getting hands-on experience with many of the latest Lamperd products which offer advanced features not available from any other company. This training program is effectively allowing Lamperd to introduce its extensive product line to the United States in a way we have not done before and with the new ATF approvals just granted, law enforcement agencies can order Lamperd products to be shipped to them at any time. We have just completed a course for police on October 27th in Elizabeth, PA and we are preparing for another on November 16th in Royal Oak, MI.  Full details can be seen on the company website here: http://lamperdlesslethal.com/police-military-training/.

Further, our research and development programs are continuing to produce new products in direct response to expressed desires from the law enforcement community. The Extraction Shield we recently introduced is an example of this effort. The newest product we are delivering is a 37mm Tear Gas Breaching Round which has been specially designed to break through tempered glass in a way that will allow only the CS Tear Gas contents of the round to emerge on the opposite side without any harmful debris. The Lamperd 37mm Tear Gas Breaching Round will meet a need that is currently unfilled in police armories and we will be demonstrating it in our training programs beginning immediately. More information on this latest product can be found on the Lamperd website here: http://lamperdlesslethal.com/less-lethal-munitions/.  

Additionally, we are continuing with the sale of some of our products for humane domestic animal and wildlife control and also addressing the ongoing issue of providing protection for the general public from active shooters in schools or other public places. One related issue we would like to clarify is the mention we made earlier in the year about the possibility of setting up a Lamperd production facility for our Pepper Blast product in the United States. Now that ATF approval has been granted to import Lamperd products directly into the United States, we have determined that it will not be necessary to incur the expense of opening another plant. For additional details and information on all of the programs and projects that Lamperd is engaged in we recommend that all investors review the previous news announcements we have made this year and our website at www.lamperdlesslethal.com. We will also be bringing out new announcements soon including a progress update on the major joint marketing program being prepared with our Middle East partner company Gokser Makine Sanayi.
