We did some fire extinguisher training recently at my place of business, and I was truly impressed by the volume of opaque cloud generated by a properly discharged fire extinguisher.

You can purchase all manner of accessories to bolt on to a firearm - optics, laser sighting devices, flashlights.

I propose a small cannister of the same materials that fire extinguishers contain, highly pressurized to discharge in a moment at the touch of a button.

If you can blind your opponent in this manner, you may be able to avoid the need to shoot him. If he flees, identifying him shouldn't be too difficult.

       since you're not actually putting out fires, why call it a "fire extinguisher accessory" ?

       Edits in process. The marketing department was eliminated in the last round of layoffs. The floor is open for suggestions for catchy product names.

       Title edited - I wonder how often a fire extinguisher has been used in an offensive or defensive manner. I checked youtube - lots of kids playing with them. The initial spray is the most powerful, once you start turning them on and off it's not that impressive.
