Connecticut residents may soon carry TASER Devices outside the home

Posted by Rob on Friday, 5 March, 2010

Currently, residents of Connecticut can only keep a TASER Device in their home. But now, some forward thinking lawmakers in Hartford are finally considering a bill that would allow them to carry TASER devices for personal protection wherever they go. Let’s face it, not all criminal acts occur within the confines of your own home. CT state law dictates a fine of up to $500, up to three years in jail or both to any law abiding citizen that is caught with a Taser outside their domicile.

TASER devices are not considered firearms by the U.S. Government and can be legally carried (concealed or open) without a permit in 43 other US states.

In police studies, they have found that TASER Devices may have a higher instant incapacitation rate than a 9mm hand gun. TASER Devices, not to be confused with contact stun guns, shoots out 2 darts attached to 15 feet of wire. This device packs 50,000 volts, which travels through the wires and over-rides the target’s central nervous system providing incredible take down power, even through 2 inches of clothing.

While firearms are also widely popular self defense weapons, not everyone wants to carry a gun that has the potential for taking a life in self-defense, even the life of a low life thug attempting to harm them or their family. Traditional stun guns, which are also popular and effective, do require you to be dangerously close to your attacker (although your TASER C2 can be used as a contact stun gun in a pinch). The personal TASER C2 eliminates many problems some individuals have, providing a less-than-lethal way to stop aggression and allow you quickly escape dangerous situations to contact the police.

Hopefully the other couple of states that still restrict TASER Device use by law abiding citizens will follow Connecticut’s lead and reconsider their pro-criminal ways and allow their citizens to remain on equal ground.

Don’t TASE me Bro!

Changes to our TASER Product Line

Posted by Rob on Wednesday, 13 May, 2009

Awhile back, TASER came out with some cool TASER® C2™ models. They had a Forest Camouflage, a Desert Camouflage, Fashion Pink, Red Hot and an interesting Leopard Print to choose from along with the standard Electric Blue, Black Pearl, Titanium Silver and Metallic Pink models.

It seemed that there was a TASER of a different color to satisfy just about anyone’s sense of fashion and taste.

Sadly, a few of the models have hit the chopping block. I wouldn’t have thought that it would be a big deal to carry several different plastic casings, all of the guts are still the same, but apparently 9 flavors is too many.

Forest Camouflage, Desert Camouflage, Fashion Pink, and Leopard Print are now no longer being produced. If you have one already, it will still be covered under TASER Warranty but they are now Collector’s Items.

The ADVANCED TASER® M-18™ and M-18L™ has also been deemed obsolete and will no longer be offered. Instead, the TASER® X26C™, modeled after the TASER® X26C™ Law Enforcement model will continue to be offered to civilians.

So now your TASER C2 Devices are still available in Electric Blue, Black Pearl, Titanium Silver, Metallic Pink and Red Hot (Black Pearl only without Laser sight) and the TASER X26C is available in Black.

In police studies, the TASER X26C and TASER C2 has a higher instant incapacitation rate than 9mm hand guns. The civilian model TASER Devices shoots out 2 darts attached to 15 feet of wire. 50,000 volts travels over the wires and over-rides the central nervous system providing incredible takedown power.

Not everyone wants to carry a firearm with the potential for taking a life in self-defense. Normal stun guns require you to be dangerously close to your attacker (although your TASER Device can be used as a contact stun gun in a pinch). The personal TASER X26C and TASER C2s eliminates these problems and provides a less-than-lethal way to stop aggression and allow you quickly escape to contact the police.

Be Safe, Be Prepared.

Who Would Win a Fight, a TASER or a Stun Gun?

Who Would Win a Fight, a Taser or a Stun Gun?

Posted by Rob on Monday, 11 August, 2008


How many volt stun gun should I buy?
I’ve seen them online from 80,000 volts to 2 million volts. Does the voltage really matter? What is the difference between lower and higher voltage?
Is it the amount time the attacker is disabled, or the amount of pain he will feel?
What is the advantage to buying higher voltage stun guns?
Are there any stun gun models that work better than others do?
Which is better rechargeable or standard battery powered stun guns?
What is the difference between Tasers and a traditional stun gun?
Are 80,000 volt stun guns better than 50,000 volt Tasers?

A common misconception is that the voltage of a stun gun is what stops an attacker, the higher the voltage the better. In actuality, it is not the voltage, but the amperage. From an electrical standpoint, amperage is the measurement of the amount of electrons moving in a circuit and the voltage is the measurement of how much force those electrons are under.

It is not the voltage that can harm an individual, it is the amperage. One amp is enough to kill a person, while our stun gun products typically run 5-11 milliamps. This range is enough to temporarily incapacitate someone without rendering any permanent damage.

Both Tasers and Stun Guns are low amperage devices so you are not actually electrocuted by them.


Stun Guns concentrate on an individual’s muscle group and transfers the energy stored in the device very quickly to the target and causes the muscles to do a great deal of work. Basically, the jolt from a stun gun causes muscles to twitch at a high rate of speed, which rapidly depletes the attacker’s blood sugar and causes a great amount of lactic acid to be built up in a rather short amount of time. Imagine an intense feeling of muscle failure you would get from an extremely strenuous and lengthy physical workout, then multiply it by three. The attacker is now unable to further produce energy to these muscles and their body is unable to function properly.

The tiny neurological impulses that provide direction and control to voluntary muscle movement are also impaired. An overwhelmed neuromuscular system causes an attacker to lose balance and collapse to the ground. It may be possible for an extremely determined attacker or drugged out assailant to partially overcome these effects, and contact must be maintained for several seconds to produce the desired result. Resistance to this would call for an additional period of contact to the partially dazed individual or deployment of another self defense mechanism, such as pepper spray.

Stun Guns are typically powered by one to four 9-volt batteries or two to three Lithium batteries. These batteries supply the various electrical components in the circuit with electricity, including multiple transformers, components that provide a voltage boost and reduce the amperage of the unit. As previously indicated, the actual effectiveness of a stun gun is dependent on the amperage of a particular model, the attacker’s body size, the attacker’s determination, and the amount of time you are able to hold the device to his body. The higher the voltage, the quicker the lactic acid may build up, but it is still a matter of amperage for effectiveness.

This high-voltage but low-amperage charge has what you would consider a lot of pressure, but not that much damaging power as far as intensity goes. A painful jolt will startle an attacker with a ½-second jolt. An approximately 1-2 second discharge should start to cause muscle spasms and a dazed effect on the attacker. An ideal 3-5 second zap should render the attacker disoriented and unbalanced, as well as loss of muscle control as he hits the ground.

Be advised, a stun gun is not intended to be quick ½-second tap weapon. The most effective deployment is when the stun gun is firmly pressed into a primary target such as an articulating hinge of the body (such as an armpit, shoulder socket, hip joint or abdomen) or to a secondary target of a larger muscle group such as the thigh. If you apply the stun device to an area of the body that can easily be pulled away, such as an outstretched arm, you lose your element of surprise and the effectiveness is greatly reduced.

We would suggest any of our 625,000 volt Stun Master Stun Guns to our 950,000 volt Cell Phone Stun Gun models, and any of the models in between. As far as bang for your buck goes, for under $80, these models offer quite an acceptable stopping power taking into account a good amperage and voltage ratings. We do offer much cheaper $20-40, lower powered models if cost is a concern, but realistically you want to pack some more power than a 80,000 to 300,000 volt stun gun. The most important concern would be size of the stun gun in comparison to the size of your hand, and the convenience of carrying or disguising the stun gun as a harmless cellular phone. In our opinion, while rechargeable stun guns seem more convenient, nothing beats the consistent power of a standard stun gun with regular Energizer batteries.


Taser technology works slightly different from that of stun guns, although the term taser and stun guns are often used interchangeably. The most notable difference between the Taser and Stun Guns is the distance required to deploy. While Stun Guns are contact weapons, a taser shoots out two prongs that attach to an attacker’s clothing or skin and deliver a shocking zap from 15-30 feet away. In a pinch, C2 Tasers work as a close quarters contact stun gun also.

In contrast to the muscular attack of stun guns, TASER Devices attack the human body’s electrical system. A 50,000 volt taser would override the normal electrical activity carrying signals to your brain, affecting the signals sent to muscles to allow basic mechanical function. Basically shorting out your electrical system, individuals hit with a Taser are unable to move, tense up and just freeze in place, typically after hitting the ground.

This unique instantaneous effect is why Tasers are more effective in quickly stopping an attacker and why law enforcement typically prefer TASER Devices over traditional stun guns. Anyone can be subdues or incapacitated by a Taser, even assailants hopped up on drugs. The drawback is that the effects of a taser are recovered from much quicker, which is both good and bad, depending on the situation.

When a Taser’s probes strike an attacker, the Advanced Taser M18L must continue to fire to keep an attacker at bay. A Taser C2 has an automatic 30-second firing sequence that continues to juice an assailant so you can set the device down and run to safety while the person remains incapacitated for the duration of the cycle.

If you have ever watched the demo videos from Taser or on YouTube, you will notice a stun gunned victim recovers slowly because their muscles are extremely fatigued, while a tased and confused victim recovers much quicker as they regain control of their electrical system.

We are not talking about the videos of drunk college kids zapping each other for ½ second on the arm and laughing about it. We are talking about the fewer videos of actual stun gun demonstrations where a stun gun actually deployed properly and deliberately for the recommended period of time. It is no wonder while some people question the effectiveness of these weapons after watching some drunken kids mess around in a dorm room.

Make no mistake about it, both Tasers and Stun Guns are both reliable and effective self defense weapons.

Ah, Mr. Taser… Your reputation precedes you…

Posted by Rob on Friday, 9 May, 2008

Taser. Just speak its name and the threat of its
jolt can stop a man in his tracks.

“Taser, Taser, Taser!” was all a Salt Lake City
police officer had to shout when he couldn’t catch up
to a fleeing suspect this past Wednesday. Police
said the man suddenly threw himself on the ground
and immediately surrendered.

Tasers use compressed nitrogen to fire two
barbed darts that can immobilize someone with a
50,000-volt shock. That is if the sight or sound of
the Taser does not deter the person first.

The TASER C2 civilian model has a 15-foot range,
and the lithium power magazine, providing up to
50 jolts. An integrated LED light is included to help
users see into the shadows before firing, and a
trigger safety cover is provided to help prevent
accidental activation.

The TASER C2 now comes in nine attractive and
stylish colors: black pearl, titanium silver, metallic
pink, electric blue, fashion pink, red hot, forest
camo, desert camo and leopard print. Get your
hands on one of the latest self defense weapons
or give the perfect gift to one of your loved ones.

Don’t forget to order some extra Air Cartridges for
practice. The 4-pack also includes a practice target.

Criminals don’t play fair. Level the playing field and
be prepared for the worse. Yelling “Taser!” might
work on the not-so-bright, but make sure you have
the real thing to back up your words. Know what to do,
have a plan and don’t be afraid to defend yourself when

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?

Yours in safety,

What did you give for Valentine’s Day this year?

Posted by Rob on Thursday, 14 February, 2008

Flowers, candy, jewelry or an expensive dinner may keep you out of the doghouse with your significant other but what happens if some thug tries to ruin your Valentine’s night?

Sure a stun gun or pepper spray might not get the same initial reaction, so don’t totally ditch the flowers and candy… But what else could be a more appropriate gift on Valentine’s Day than an expression of both love and concern for the safety of your loved ones?

Luckily buying some self defense tools to protect yourself, family or friends does not require a special occasion. Anytime is the perfect time to surprise someone with the gift of personal protection.

And they will thank you for it one way or another.

Don’t worry if you didn’t order in time for this February 14th, order some personal protection now and give the gift for no particular occasion. If you need any help deciding on what to get, shoot me an e-mail.

Our TASER C2s do come in pink and red if that helps.

If however you forgot totally and are empty handed today, don’t call me… You are on your own in the doghouse…

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?

Your Life is Worth More than the Cost of a Taser

Posted by Rob on Tuesday, 12 February, 2008

It simply amazes me how much money people will spend on certain things, and not give a thought about how to protect themselves.

What is your life worth in dollars? What about the life of your spouse or other loved one? Most people would say can’t put a price on it.

How about some values on things we can assign a dollar value to?

- $750,000 on a house – but no money for any alarms, much less a surveillance system.

- $60,000 on a car – but no protection for the driver.

- $45,000 a year on tuition, room and board – but no protection for the student.

It just doesn’t make sense.

How much should you spend? Well, that depends on what you are protecting.

If you have a child in college, you can protect them very, very well for a little over a hundred dollars. Extremely well for two hundred. Less than 1/2 of 1% of $45K in tuition, room and board. And you only pay once, not every year, so that takes it way down.

Protection in your $60K car? Around a hundred bucks.

Protection for your $750K house? Around five hundred for the basics to a couple thousand for all the bells and whistles, but again, you don’t have to do it but once. Less than 1% to start, and it goes down from there.

Not only that, but it buys peace of mind, which you also can’t put a price on. The reality of the situation is that that personal protection and surveillance costs very little to start, and it delivers in the clutch.

Think about it. Where can you get this kind of bang for your buck? Is that $300 TASER C2 still really way too expensive?

If you’re prepared, you’ll never be surprised.

Your Life is Worth More than the Cost of a TASER Device.

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?

Don’t Tase Me Bro!

Posted by Rob on Thursday, 20 September, 2007

“Don’t Tase me, Bro!” was yelled by Andrew Meyer as he was pinned to the floor by police. After the prankster disrupted a question and answer session with US Senator John Kerry, and then resisted arrest he was tasered while being caught on tape.

Meyer’s voice became louder and more aggressive as he continued his rant. When he refused to step away from the microphone, he was restrained by police officers. After struggling with police and resisting attempts to remove him, Meyer was rightly subdued with a TASER Device. You don’t resist arrest. You don’t want to be tasered, comply with the request of the authorities. His alternative was to be beaten with telescopic steel batons or nightsticks Rodney King style. I’d rather be tased bro, but then again I wouldn’t be resisting arrest…

As well as the usefulness of TASER Devices for law enforcement, there is also a new civilian model for personal self defense purposes.

The TASER C2 has a 15-foot range, and the lithium power magazine, providing up to 50 jolts. An integrated LED light is included to help users see into the shadows before firing, and a trigger safety cover is provided to help prevent accidental activation. The new TASER C2 comes in four attractive and stylish colors: black pearl, titanium silver, metallic pink and, electric blue.

A Taser of Heroic Proportions

Posted by Rob on Thursday, 3 May, 2007

I was watching Heroes the other night on TV. If you have not
ever seen it, it is on Monday nights on NBC. It is a pretty
good show with the main premise of ordinary people who woke
up one morning with extraordinary powers, eventually leading
up to trying to save the world from an bomb that will
destroy New York City. As the tagline goes “Save the
Cheerleader. Save the World.” I have seen a number of the
episodes, but I have not followed it too closely.

This past week’s episode that I caught was about traveling
forward in time five years, showing what happened if the
bomb was not prevented in the present day. The episode was
packed full of the normal superhero action and excitement –
invisibility, flying, shapeshifting, psychokenisis, etc.
There was even a scene when Parkman pulls out a taser and
zaps Hiro unconscious. Of course, that scene was the one
that registered the most with me. Hey, I sell those, I
thought to myself. At the end of the episode, I turned to
my wife and said “Well, that was unrealistic.”

Taking the bait, she started to defend the show that she
loves by saying “What do you mean? They all have super
powers; it is part of the show…” I let her continue for a
moment before I cut her off and said “No, I meant the part
with the taser.” She stopped and waited for my
explanation. “If this episode was supposed to take place
five years in the future, there is no way Parkman would
still be carrying that old style taser, He’d at least have
been packing a C2!”

She just rolled her eyes and smiled. Obviously, NBC did not
do their research.

The TASER C2, expected release in June 2007, can stop a
threat up to 15 feet away, allowing you a safe distance to
protect yourself and family from an attacker. If a close
quarter defense is warranted, the C2 will also double as a
contact stun device as a powerful and unexpected backup
capability. TASER technology has proven itself as a safe
and effective choice of self-defense with well over 500,000
worldwide users, both civilian and law enforcement.

A TASER C2 can be conveniently discharged to work anywhere
on the body, and is able to pass current through 2 inches of
clothing. This makes the TASER C2 more effective
self-defense option by making it easier to stop a threat
under an already stressful situation. TASER devices have
been used effectively by law enforcement encounters by over
10,000 police agencies in over 4 countries, boasting a 95%
effective rating. TASER technology provides one of the only
non-lethal means of stopping an attacker dead in his tracks,
even if under the influence of drugs or alcohol. It even seems
to work on certain people with superhero powers.

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

Stay safe and be prepared!

Yours in Safety,
