How to draw your TASER device from a holster

Posted by Anthony Carli on 4/24/18 11:00 AM

We've covered the importance of safely carrying your device in a holster or a bag in the last few weeks, but how should you draw your TASER device from the holster should you need it? TASER Instructor Sara Morrell shows us in today's #TrainingTuesday post.

In the video below, TASER Instructor Sara Morrell demonstrates how to safely draw a TASER Pulse from a holster, keeping the device pointed in a safe direction at all times. While this video uses a TASER Pulse and a Blade-Tech outside the waistband (OWB) holster, the principles remain the same for any other holster products. This demonstration is the recommended approach, but may not be practical for all situations and may need to be modified in the heat of the moment. We emphasize practice so that when you are under the stress of a real-world situation, there is a higher likelihood that you will be able to remove the device from its holster properly and comfortably.

The importance of practicing with your TASER device

Posted by Anthony Carli on 3/6/18 11:00 AM

In August, we conducted a survey of 479 randomly selected TASER Self-Defense customers and found that 25% of TASER product owners have never practiced firing their device. Over 40% have only practiced dry-firing their device. Most staggeringly, 22% of users said they were not confident in their ability to use their device. We consider that to be 22% too many!

Anatomy of a TASER Pulse

Posted by Anthony Carli on 2/13/18 12:00 AM

Before surgeons are given a license to wield a scalpel, they undergo years of education and training to understand where vital structures in the human body are located. Though the TASER Pulse is far less complex, there is still a benefit to understanding where important features are located, both inside and outside of the device, to help you build confidence in your ability to use it for self-defense.

Welcome to Training Tuesday!

Posted by Anthony Carli on 1/30/18 12:00 AM

We're coming at you every Tuesday with tips and best-practices to help you gain confidence with your TASER device. So, from now on, Tuesday is training day, people!

Simple, everyday activities can seem insurmountable as pressure builds. We've all dropped game-winning passes, fumbled a line in an important presentation, or struggled to lock the front door when running late. Because a stressed-out brain can be a forgetful one, it is so important that TASER device owners, like you, take time to re-familiarize themselves with their device. That way, in a real-world situation, you're ready to protect yourself through instinct, not thought. This is why we launched The Lightning Club back in November 2017, and why we are starting our #TrainingTuesday series.
