Tall Guns TASER C2 - Myths

TASER BOLT(C2) and PULSE Myths

MYTH: "Isn't it illegal to carry a TASER ECD?"

FACT: It is legal to own a TASER ECD in the U.S. except in HI, MA, MI, NJ, NY, RI, WI, and the District of Columbia. Other states might have limited restrictions on the use or possession of ECDs.

MYTH: "So is the TASER BOLT or PULSE less powerful than ones police use?"

FACT: The TASER C2 uses the same exact technology and offers the same stopping power as our police version. The only difference is the cycle time - TASER C2 relays the charge for 30 seconds compared to a 5 seconds with the police version. This is so you can keep your attacker down and get yourself to safety!

MYTH: "So if I have to leave my BOLT or PULSE behind, I then have to buy a brand new replacement?"

FACT: TASER BOLT and PUSLE has a Lifetime Replacement Guarantee*. If you ever have to use your BOLT or PULSE to defend yourself and must leave it behind, TASER International will replace it free of charge once you've sent us a police report of the incident. No question - your life is worth more to us than the cost of a BOLT or PULSE!
*Applies only to incidents that occur in the United States

MYTH: "Isn't the TASER BOLT or PULSE just a stun gun?"

FACT: TASER BOLT and PULSE are far more powerful than a traditional stun gun. First, it can incapacitate an attacker from up to 15 feet away while a stun gun requires direct contact with the threat. This gives you a zone of protection other self-defense options cannot offer. Second, unlike stun guns, TASER technology does not rely on pain compliance localized to the point of contact; rather it affects the sensory and motor functions of the nervous system and inhibits muscular control. This keeps an attacker down and immobilized for 30 seconds not just "stunned" for as long as you maintain contact. However, TASER BOLT and PULSE can also be used as a stun device if necessary.

MYTH: "Is the TASER BOLT or PULSE too complicated to quickly use to defend myself?"

FACT: It’s as simple as point and shoot. TASER BOLT and PULSE were designed to provide you an option that is effective yet easy to use and accessible. The BOLT safety cover is simple to operate but ensures the ECD is not accidentally fired. The PULSE is a flip of the safetyr. The laser sight lets you aim accurately and feel confident you will make contact with an assailant. The BOLT trigger is a simple push-button mechanism that allows you to fire, drop the BOLT, and run while keeping the attacker down.The PULSE trigger is a simple press of the trigger that allows you to fire, drop the PULSE and run while keeping the attacker down.

MYTH: "Do I have to carry the TASER BOLT or PULSE in a holster or custom case like the police do?"

FACT: TASER BOLT and PULSE were designed with your lifestyle in mind. At approximately 6 inches long and weighing about 7 ounces, it is compact, lightweight, and discreet enough to be carried in a hand bag, backpack, in the supplied holster on the body or just about anywhere.

MYTH: "Is pepper spraying a safer option?"

FACT: Pepper spray can be an effective self-defense option, but it also carries some risks. First, environmental conditions like wind could cause the spray to blow back at your rather than towards an attacker. Second, assailants must be in fairly close range for pepper spray to be effective, increasing chances that they will reach you and/or take the canister from you. Third, pepper spray effectiveness rates vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. Fourth, pepper spray loses its effectiveness over time and often does not affect attackers under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. TASER is the most effective option, period. It uses no dangerous chemicals and consistently delivers an incapacitating charge to keep you safe and protected.
