TASER M26C devices can stop threats from up to 15 ft. (4.6 m). Or, you can use the TASER device as a contact stun device — a powerful backup capability. In field uses by law enforcement against dangerous suspects, TASER technology has among the lowest injury rates of any force option. However, TASER devices are not risk free and may cause injuries ,primarily from falls or physical exertion. Use of TASER devices should not be undertaken lightly. Detailed product warnings are available.
A hit anywhere on the body can be effective with a TASER device, making it easier to use and more reliable under stress than any other use-of-force option.
TASER electronic control devices are field proven up to 95% effective in actual police use — the highest of any similar device. TASER International makes the only device that can truly incapacitate people under the influence of PCP and other dangerous drugs. Further, a hit anywhere on the body can be effective, making it easy to use and more reliable under stress.
EASY TO USE
TASER M26C technology has been available to citizens concerned with self-defense for over a decade. Unlike conventional weapons, TASER devices are effective with a hit anywhere on the body. To be effective for self-defense, bullets risk more lethal consequences, striking the head or vital organs. Similarly, chemical or pepper sprays must hit an assailant in the face — a much less reliable alternative in fast moving confrontations. And, in a windy environment, sprays can be blown back onto the user.
TASER Personal Protection Devices can be used more effectively and reliably than many other self-defense technologies.
LEGAL TO CARRY IN MOST STATES
TASER devices are not considered firearms by the US Government. They can be legally carried (concealed or open) without permit required in 43 states. Prohibited citizen use in DC, HI, MA, MI, NJ, NY, RI, WI, certain cities and counties. CT and IL legal with restrictions. Check local laws before purchasing or carrying electronic control devices.
We are committed to doing the most we can to prevent potential misuse of our products.
Accordingly, we have developed an advanced TASER device tracking program called AFID (Anti-Felon Identification). Our AFID program enforces accountability for each use of the TASER device and has worked successfully for over a decade with citizen sales.
Each TASER Cartridge sold for use with the TASER device has a unique serial number. This serial number is printed in a bar code format on the back of each TASER Cartridge. At the time the probes are packed into each TASER Cartridge, approximately 20-30 pieces of film printed with the serial number of that TASER Cartridge are loaded behind them. When the TASER M26C is deployed, these AFID tags are dispersed at the scene. The large number of AFIDS and their small size makes it impractical to clean up. When police are called to investigate any TASER device use, they can find these tags and contact TASER International for a complete trace on the serial number.
No other weapon in the world — guns, knives, chemical and pepper sprays, electronic defense units, or batons — can be traced from evidence at the scene of the crime to the registration of the user. It all comes back to responsibility.
LIFETIME REPLACEMENT GUARANTEE
If a TASER Personal Protection Device is used in self-defense, it can be deployed and left behind attached to the attacker causing incapacitation while you get to safety. Send us a copy of the police report documenting the incident and we can replace your unit free of charge.

The key technology to disable even the most aggressive subjects, NMI temporarily over-rides the command and control systems of the body to impair muscular control.
Shaped Pulse™ Technology
A sophisticated pulse wave that utilizes a high voltage leading edge to penetrate barriers such as clothing around the body followed by a lower voltage stimulation pulse to cause Neuromuscular Incapacitation.
Digital Pulse Control (DPC)
A replaceable module that allows for the engagement of targets at ranges up to 15 feet. Integrates a nitrogen propulsion system, high voltage insulated TASER wire, bi-metal probes, and AFID serialization optimized for the TASER.

Digital display that communicates battery percentage, duration remaining during pulse discharge, time, date, and warranty status.
TASER Device - Self Defense Article
Freddy started hanging around old man Benson's sporting goods store when he was just ten years old. Now sixteen, and saving up his cash for college, he ran the cash register on weekends when the owner took a few hours off to spend time with his daughter and grandkids.
Weekend afternoons were pretty quiet in the neighborhood. Most folks did their shopping at the mall these days, though many of the office workers still stopped by during the week. For Freddy, it usually meant a chance to catch up on inventory or even the rare opportunity to get some more homework done.
Melissa, who helped her father run the store, had spent some time and energy upgrading the store's security in the past few months. She and her father didn't believe in stashing a gun behind the counter - they didn't want to run the risk that it might be used against them, or stolen at night and used in some other crime.
So Melissa picked up a TASER M26C. She figured that if someone came in and threatened her father or one of her clerks, they could point and shoot it just like a gun.
As the Bensons enjoyed their afternoon in the park, Freddy caught up on some of his schoolwork. He couldn't wait to enroll in pre-med courses that fall. As he looked up from his textbook, he noticed an unfamiliar figure hovering around the store. The guy was easily a foot taller than Freddy, and weighed about two hundred fifty pounds.
"Can I help you?" Freddy shouted.
The man darted his eyes at Freddy in between glances at the four corners of the store.
Freddy leaned up off his chair, and asked, "Is there something I can help you find?"
Suddenly, the man darted toward Freddy, eyes ablaze. He bellowed, "Yeah! You can help me find all the money in your cash register, punk! And when you're done with that, I want you to come in to the back room and get that safe open!"
Freddy noticed a bulge in the man's sweatshirt, and didn't want to risk what might happen if that was any kind of weapon. In a split second, he grabbed the TASER Device from underneath the counter. Freddy locked the laser sight onto his target and pulled the trigger.
Even though the robber was still about fifteen feet away, two small darts found their mark and channeled 50,000 volts of electricity over the pair of wires. The criminal collapsed, and Freddy knew from biology class that the attacker's muscles wouldn't stop contracting until he was stuck in the fetal position.
After the cops and paramedics arrived, Freddy learned that the robber was high on meth, looking for cash for a quick score. Without the TASER M26C, who knows what he might have done. Freddy knew that, in that state, the guy could even have survived a gunshot and still done some serious damage.
Closing the store that day, he couldn't wait to swing by the park and give Melissa the news.
It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?
