What exactly is a Taser?

The Taser was invented in 1969, by NASA researcher Jack Cover. He drew his inspiration from one of his favorite childhood science fiction books, written by Victor Appleton. In the books, the main character, named Thomas A Swift, would use his electronic rifle to shock criminals. The title of the story was Thomas A Swift and his Electronic Rifle. Thus the name TASER was born,

Is A Taser Effective?

People ask "How Does A Taser Work?" It is simple, a Taser works, by firing two small electrodes with prongs, that stick to clothing, even through body armor. An electric shock is then run down the attached wires to the victim, causing 50,000 volts of electricity, that will stun a person for several minutes, giving you time to get away, or as for law enforcement use, to give time to subdue the criminal. The probes are are launched into the air by a small nitrogen charge. Most cartridges contain one pair of electrodes and propellant for one single shot, though some can contain two or three shots. The cartridge must then be replaced after use. The shock will override the central nervous system and cause uncontrollable contractions of the muscle, which will cause the perpetrator to drop. That is why a Taser is considered a non-lethal self defense device.

Are Tasers The Same As Police Use?

Law enforcement force strength Tasers have a maximum range of 35 feet, but non-law enforcement individuals can only purchase a Taser with a range of up to 15 feet. The electrodes are pointed to penetrate clothing, and barbed to prevent removal, once in place. The newer Pulse Tasers can penetrate thicker clothing easier, to increase the effectiveness. After the cartridge has been discharged, the gun can then be used as a stun device, by touching the criminal and administering an electronic shock directly to their body.

Are Tasers Legal?

Tasers are legal to carry in most states without a permit, though some states have certain restrictions. They are restricted in MA, RI, NY, NJ, HI, the District of Columbia, and various other cities and counties. It is best to check your local and state laws to find what restrictions you may have. Many states have severe fines if Tasers are used to perpetuate a crime. Felons may also have a hard time purchasing or gaining authorization to use a Taser stun device, so again, please check with your states laws first, before purchasing a Taser

Are The Cartridges Included In The Box Practice Cartridges, Or The Real Thing?

Yes, your new Taser, will have live cartridges included, that will shock, if fired at a target. You may also purchase separately Training Cartridges, that are considerably cheaper, to use for target practice.

Will These Tasers Deliver More Than One Shock After The Initial Surge?

This is right up there with the question of, "How does a Taser work?" Upon first firing your new Taser, two barbed spikes are expelled from the cartridge, attached to 15 foot metal wires, that attach themselves to the clothing, or skin of your attacker. You the release the electric shock button, which sends the voltage down the wire, and puts them down for the count. If by chance, you missed striking them, or they did not receive enough shock, you can then use the device like a stun gun, and touch the actual unit to the perpetrator and shock them that way. You will get multiple electric shocks from the stun gun portion of your Taser.

Do These Tasers Come With A Soft Holster?

The Bolt and The Pulse have a soft holster that is included. You can purchase a hard or heavy duty nylon holster separately. The Taser X26P and The Taser X2 Defender do not have a holster included. Those models will have to be purchased separately also.

Don't forget the Taser accessories, like extra battery packs, holsters, targets or The Taser Cam HD to record your Taser firings.
