With TASER devices, you can safely stop a threat from up to 15-feet or 4.5 meters. Or, you can use the TASER 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. Medical studies and field results indicate that the effects from TASER devices leave no lasting aftereffects — as attested by over 100,000 police volunteers and in over 55,000 actual field uses.
A hit anywhere on the body can be effective with the TASER, making it easier to use and more reliable under stress.
TASER energy weapons are field proven as 95% effective in actual police use — the highest of any non-lethal device. TASER International makes the only non-lethal 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.

• Contact stun capabilityTASER technology has been available to citizens concerned with self-defense for over a decade. Unlike conventional weapons, TASER is 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.
The TASER can be used more effectively and safely with less training than other self-defense technologies.
