TASER Safety vs. Other Tools

How do TASER products stack up against other safety tools? Check out the graphic below to find out!

TASER Product Comparison

TASER Products: TASER products are simple to use, safer than other force alternatives, highly effective when use properly, and provide a less-lethal self defense option. The TASER Pulse, TASER Bolt, TASER X2, and TASER X26P devices can provide safety from 15 feet (4.6 m), and also have contact stun capabilities. The TASER Pulse and TASER Bolt can provide up to 30 seconds of Neuro Muscular Incapacitation (NMI), and the X2 and X26P can provide 5 seconds of NMI. 


Pepper Spray:
Pepper spray provides a safety distance of up to 8 feet (2.4 m). While it can act as an effective safety tool, motivated attackers may fight through its effects and users must be cautious to avoid receiving the effects of the spray.


Stun Gun: A stun gun is a direct contact, pain compliance tool; meaning it only provides a safety distance up to arm's length and is not capable of delivering Neuro Muscular Incapacitation. Motivated attackers may still fight through the effects of a contact stun.

Firearm: A gun can provide a safety distance greater than 15 feet. While effective, depending on the location of the shot, its effects can be lethal.

TASER products provide a less-lethal self-defense option, while also providing the means and ability to make a safe escape in the event of an attack.
