Why Buy a Taser Instead of a Gun


There are several advantages to buying a Taser over a gun or firearm. The main advantage is that it is non lethal. In other words, you most likely will kill a person with a gun but you won't with a Taser. This brings peace of mind to many. Plus, if you are ever in a situation that an attacker turns the weapon against you, the worst case scenario would be that they would electrically shock you and not kill you!

Maintenance is another reason why you should buy a Taser and not a Gun. A gun needs to be cleaned of gun powder on a regular basis, to keep it functioning properly. This is a messy and smelly task that you won't have to do with a Taser. All three citizen models, the Taser C2, Taser X26c and Taser M26c, are maintenance free.

Aiming is a critical factor to consider for a self defense product. Let's face it most people have lousy aim. It won't do you any good to have a self defense weapon if you can't aim properly. Most guns do not have an accessory to facilitate this issue. All citizen Tasers have laser sight (you can request no laser with only the Taser C2 in Black). Laser sight is a red beam of light that shows up as a red dot on whomever you are trying to aim at. This laser turns on automatically when you pull back the trigger safety cover or safety switch, depending on the model. You don't have to have perfect aim to use a Taser!

Visibility plays a large role in self defense. Again, most firearms do not come with an accessory to help with seeing where you are shooting. All Tasers come with a LED light, that again, turns on automatically when you pull pack the trigger safety cover or safety switch.

Strength determines many times if you are able to reach your target. Shooting a firearm requires a person to have substantial strength when pulling the trigger. The trigger is really not the issue here, but the kickback that comes afterwards is. Many people, especially women, are thrown back considerably when they shoot a gun, even a small one. This leads to missing the intended target. You don't have to be very strong to use a Taser. It doesn't have a kickback!

For these 5 reasons mentioned, it's no wonder that more and more people are purchasing Tasers, instead of firearems or guns as weapons! The best part is that with this less lethal, self defense device, there will be fewer casualties!
