I’m definitely a big fan of safety, which is one reason why I like the TASER C2. It’s incredibly effective and allows you to protect yourself without getting too close to your attacker, stopping them from up to 15ft away! If for some reason your attacker is very close to you, thankfully the TASER C2 works double-duty as a contact stun gun! I may be a bit biased, since the TASER is my self-defense product of choice, but over half a million TASER owners worldwide agree that the TASER is an effective form of self-defense!
It Gets the Job Done
Able to remain effective regardless of where it hits your attacker’s body, the TASER C2 is a bit simpler to use under stress than other self-defense products. TASERS are so effective that they are used by thousands of law enforcement organizations with ratings of 95% effectiveness. It’s no wonder he TASER is regarded as one of the best non-lethal self-defense devices, capable of incapacitating an attacker even if he/she is affected by drugs or alcohol!
Being a Responsible TASER Owner
Though TASERS are an incredibly effective, non-lethal self-defense weapon, TASER International takes TASER ownership very seriously. Your new TASER C2 can only be activated after the new owner completes a background check through TASER International. There is a small activation fee at this time as well. You wouldn’t want a TASER getting into the wrong hands!
Another great safety feature of the TASER C2 is that the cartridges each have a dedicated serial number with an AFI or Anti-Felon Identification system that sprays out tiny tags at the scene where the TASER is discharged that also feature the same serial number. That way, the police can track any inappropriate TASER use.
Replacement Guarantee for Life
Now ladies, this is one of my favorite benefits to owning a TASER C2! If you ever have to use your TASER C2 in self-defense, TASER International will replace it for free if you can provide a police report regarding the incident! That’s a fabulous guarantee!
