What is a Taser Gun?

Shooting tasers are non-lethal self defense weapons. Great choice for personal safety that gives you the advantage of distance from a criminal! A Taser is a type of stun gun with shooting tethered electrodes that attach to the assailant's skin with barbs. Because the barbs remain attached to the device by wires and shoot up to 15 feet, you have the advantage of staying safely away from an assailant. You can shoot them with your weapon before they are actually assaulting you. You can also shock them by touching them with your device, should they get close to you.

Are Tasers and Stun Guns the same thing?

All Tasers are considered stun guns, but NOT all stun guns are Tasers. However, the words are often used interchangeably, which isn't completely correct. Both of these personal protection devices deliver an electric shock just in a different way.

Stun guns require actual contact with an attacker. A true taser shoots out prongs attached to wires. The prongs are barb and bury themselves into the skin which is why in videos you see that they stay attached to the attacker.

Who manufactures Tasers?

Our models, X2, X26P, Bolt, and Pulse, are all manufactured by Axon, formerly known as Taser International. The X2 and X26P are mostly carried by law enforcement officers. The civilian style devices are the Bolt and Pulse. The Bolt was formerly named C2.

Which is the best taser to buy?

Of course everyone wants to buy the very best taser for self defense! Just keep in mind that the most expensive isn't necessarily the "best" one for you personally. You can get a great device for under $400! For the public, the best ones are the Pulse and the Bolt for a few reasons. Both of these are smaller than the tasers police use, the X2 and X26P, therefore, they are more easily concealed and easier to handle.

The Pulse is shaped like a small handgun which is why this one is so popular. It feels more natural in your hand, especially if you have ever shot a handgun. It is striped with bright yellow paint to distinguish it from a real handgun. They are both very easy to use. The cost of the Bolt and Pulse are the same and very affordable. The cost of the law enforcement style tasers are significantly more. If you are willing to spend the money, they are great weapons! Their range is twice as far as the less expensive ones, which can definitely be an advantage.
