1. A standoff device for a gun comprising:
an elongated body disposed between a proximal end and a distal end having a bore extending in a longitudinal direction therethrough;
wherein the elongated body is circumferentially crenelated at the distal end so as to form a plurality of radially disposed pointed tooth members and a plurality of notches extending between two or more of the plurality of radially disposed tooth members, the tooth members and notches radially alternating about a circumference of the distal end;
wherein a notch of the plurality of notches defines a contour that extends radially from an outer circumferential surface of the distal end to the bore, at least a portion of the contour having no curvature in the longitudinal direction such that the tooth members disposed adjacent the notch are pointed and elongated for penetration.
