What Do You Need To Know Before You Purchase A Taser? 

Tasers are appearing in the media more and more often. Police have found that these devices are very useful when it comes to controlling uncooperative suspects in a non-lethal manner. In addition, regular consumers are purchasing Tasers for their own personal self-defense. Many times the media uses the terms "stun gun" and "Taser" to mean the same thing. This is inaccurate. A Taser works by shooting electrodes onto the assailant. These electrodes are tethered to the device. On the other hand, a stun gun works by touching the actual device to the assailant in order to connect the two attached electrodes.

How Tasers Work

 A Taser, sometimes called an Air Taser, is a type of stun gun. Once fired, the gun uses compressed nitrogen to propel two darts which are attached to the device with 15 feet of thin wire. The fired darts attach to the clothing of the subject, where they deliver 50,000 volts that are transmitted via the wires. The assailant will fall to the ground in pain. Because the device uses low amperage, the effects of the jolt are temporary and the subject will sustain no permanent damage. To deliver the shock, a Taser uses a timer mechanism. The electrical current in a Taser uses a preset sequence. Each cycle has a total of 30 seconds consisting of 7 seconds of current followed by breaks of 1.8 seconds. This ensures that the subject's nervous system is unable to recover quickly, and they are not able to pull the probes off their clothing.

Tasers work. In the field, they are almost 100% effective. An Air Taser does not damage muscles, nerves, or anything else on the body. Traditional stun guns require that you make direct contact with an assailant. With a Taser, you can defend yourself from a distance of up to 15 feet. Always ensure that, like any other self-defense product, you are careful with the application of this device.

A Taser or conducted electrical weapon (CEW) is an electroshock defense item sold by Taser International. It fires two little dart-like electrodes, which stay attached to the primary unit by wires, to distribute electric current to interrupt intended control of muscles producing "neuromuscular incapacitation".  An attacker hit by a Taser receives stimulation of their sensory nerves and motor nerves, resulting in robust uncontrolled muscle contractions. Unlike stun guns Tasers do not depend only on pain obedience, except when used in the secondary "Stun" mode, for this reason TASERS are preferred by most law enforcement over non-Taser stun guns and other electronic control devices.

Do TASERS work on everyone?

A person who has received a Taser jolt will spend several minutes in a dazed state. The pulsing current of electricity makes muscles contract involuntarily, which gives the subject vertigo. It will incapacitate or knock out the attacker in a matter of seconds. However, the low amperage used and the short length of each pulse of electrical current ensures that the device is non-lethal. In addition, there will be no long-term effects or permanent damage to the nerves, muscles, or any other bodily functions.

No one has been discovered that is “immune" to a TASER; since its effects are caused by the closed loop of an electrical circuit, the muscle tightening is a spontaneous response. It's like getting punched in the nose, your eyes tear and nose runs as an unconscious response to the punch. However, some people are able to tolerate the pain better than others but the muscular reaction to the electrical shock is not something that can be controlled or repelled. Legend has it that Tasers may even work on zombies. Get more information here

Do TASERS work on a dog or animals in general?

TASERS happen to be proven to become a highly effective option for coping with aggressive animals and also have generally been effective on dogs.  Most animals happen to be disabled or stunned, but recover instantly when the TASER cycle has ended.  Some dogs, however, don't try to escape and may become aggressive. Deployments which were not successful on animals are usually the effect of a single probe impact. If an animal is stunned, consider getting animal control involved to use a restraint throughout the cycle.

Question: After initial probes have been deployed; is the back-up a direct contact or projectile? 

Answer: Your secondary options are to pull the trigger again to send another charge cycle down the initial probes, remove the first cartridge and reload another cartridge, or use the contact stun "drive stun". 

Question: How long can the battery hold charge if stored? 

Answer I personally own a C2, and it uses a very similar battery setup. I tested an "Expired" Cartdrige and battery after 10 years of it being in my wifes purse, it still drove the barbs into a 2x4 and sent sparks flying everywhere. hope that helps.

Question: How many volts? 

Answer: 50,000 volts at 7 watts.

Question: Can you buy extra cartridges? How many times you can use this? 

Answer: Yes you can. they come in packs of 2 or 4

Question: If you shoot out a cartidge will it be done forever?

Answer: Yes - one shot = one use. You can buy training cartridges for practice (they're blue).

Question: Will this work on bears? 

Answer:  A bear has thick skin and fur which seriously limits the ability of Taser probes to even penetrate, which they have to do in order to deliver their jolt.
Even if you land a shot, a Taser or stun gun is unlikely to slow or stop it like the way it might work on humans (keep in mind that even sufficiently agitated humans have resisted the involuntary muscle spasms caused by a Taser).Bear spray is a much better, easier, and cheaper deterrent.

Question: What is the distance that this taser gun will travel? 

Answer: Although civilians are limited to a 15 foot air cartridge, law enforcement and military only get a 21 foot air cartridge (there is a special 25 foot version for specialty applications), so not much difference, as this electrical conductivity weapon (ECW) is meant for relatively close proximity use. Optimum Taser application is 3-7 feet (3 foot minimum) for proper Taser dart deployment and spread. Of course, after the Taser air cartridge is deployed or even without a cartridge inserted, this self-defense weapon can be used repeatedly as a contact stun device as well.

Question: Can the taser be turned on and only the laser be used without the flashlight coming on? 

Answer: No, when you turn the unit on, the light and laser comes on at the same time.

Question: Is it a taser and can it also be used a stun gun 

Answer: Yes, absolutely. With the cartridge out of the barrel (e.g. after it's been discharged), the muzzle IS a stun gun when the trigger is pulled.
