TASER Feel the Power!

in Attacker

taserWhen firing a TASER Gun there is compressed nitrogen that ejects two probes up to 15 feet at an approximate speed of 135 feet per second.  When these probes hit its target area, an electrical signal transmits throughout where the probes make contact with the body or clothing.  The result of the hit is an immediate victory to the attacker's neuromuscular control system and the target will not have any ability to perform synchronized movement.  An automated timing mechanism is used by the TASER gun that submits the electric charge.  An electrical current pre-set time sequence is released by the TASER (an initial seven seconds followed by several 1.8 second breaks for a total time of about 30 seconds in each cycle).  This particular cycle ensures that the nervous system of the attacker does not recuperate right away allowing him or her to remove the probes.  The re-equilibration of the nervous system is disrupted by the follow-on bursts.  When the attacker is down in a disabled mode this is the time for you to put the TASER down and get to safety. 

Is High Voltage Lethal?

taserThe typical current in a home is 100 volts.  This level is dangerous as it will thrust higher amperage into your body for an indefinite period.  Someone can receive a 25,000-volt shock of static electricity from a doorknob on a dry day without being harmed.  The TASER is powered with an alkaline 9-Volt battery that is competent of supplying less than three watts of electrical power for only a few moments.

Are there any after affects?

taserAnyone who is shot by a TASER Gun will be in a confused state for several minutes. A sense of vertigo will happen due to the lively electrical output.  This will cause your muscles to produce contractions uncontrollably.  The attacker can possibly become in an unconscious state at this time.  However, TASER's low electrical amperage and short duration of pulsating current, ensures a less-lethal charge.  Although there is controversy as to whether a TASER will cause permanent damage or even death in some, its effects are normally short-term with no long-term harm.   

What if the Probes Miss?

The TASER can be used in a touch-stun gun mode. This will act as a backup should you miss your target with the original probe shot.  By utilizing the TASER in Stun Gun mode you will be able to stun your attacker and escape to safety. 

What's the best Shot at Maximum Range?

At a probe spread of six inches which is where these need to be for the TASER to be exceptionally efficient.  You always want to fire the TASER from several feet away to make sure the spread is greater than six inches.  The optimal shot range is between seven to ten feet away from the target to attain utmost effect.  While positioning yourself at a distance of seven to ten feet away - the probe spread will be approximately 16 inches, this will ensure the attacker receives the most efficient T-Wave flow.

I started this business because I myself was attacked.  I know what it's like to be in a very bad situation without any means of a self defense weapon.  I certainly don't wish this upon anyone, but in today's world now is the time to protect you and your family more than ever.  With the many methods of self defense weapons available today, one should not hesitate in providing themself with a protection device. When it comes down to it, it's you or them.  This is real, It can happen to you as it happened to me.  PersonalProtectionandMore.com
