The TASER is safe. 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.

TASER 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.
