The Solanii Laiz Pistol, designed centuries ago by Solan Starworks, has remained the accepted standard among security personnel and the armed forces since it's inception. It is fairly lightweight, packs a punch but does not overkill, or cause horribly painful deaths from radiation poisoning.

Solid State Laser
A solid-state laser is a laser that uses a gain medium that is a solid, rather than a liquid such as in dye lasers or a gas as in gas lasers. In this case, the beam is pumped via a laser diode and uses a high precision Neodymium-doped transparent ceramic lens for excellent accuracy and high power efficiency. The result is a beam capable of inflicting surprising damage to most targets, though it lacks the penetrative qualities of some other EM weapons.
