    Injuries resulting from the discharge of conventional threaded metallic tear gas cartridges and similar devices loaded with chioroacetophenone (CN) or ortho chlorobenzalmalononitrile (CS) have been reported recently [1–4]. Wounds caused by the firing of illegal pen guns loaded with fixed metallic ammunition have also been reported [5].
