Tasers, Civilian Self Defense Products

These self defense weapons are the most recent stun devices available. Unlike stun guns, you can be 15 feet away from your attacker and still reach to shock them electrically. This is because the electrical charge is attached to 2 probes on wires that shoot out from the Taser and hit the subject. Citizen Tasers come in three models, C2, X26c and M26c. Tasers come with lithium power magazines, digital power magazines or AA batteries depending on the model. Holsters are available for all models. A cartridge usually is included with the purchase of a Taser and a person can also purchase extra ones as needed. Each cartridge needs to be replaced whenever the Taser is shot (you get one shot with each cartridge). Most Tasers also come with a laser that assists in aiming at the attacker. You don't need to be a good aimer to use a Taser successfully. To own a Taser you are required to pass a simple felony background check that takes approximately 10 minutes. This test can be done through Taser International's website or by calling them on the phone.

Below are simple rules to follow:
  • Check battery life for your particular model
  • Replace used cartridges
  • Never let children handle Tasers
