Taser guns are self-defence devices that are often carried by police and security officers and military personnel. Some states also allow regular citizens to legally carry tasers or mini-tasers. Taser guns have a number of advantages over other types of defensive devices such as pepper spray, stun guns and firearms.

Avoid carrying a lethal weapon

One of the main advantages of taser guns is that they allow people to avoid carrying a gun or other lethal weapon. This can save a person from having to deal with the licensing requirements as well as any other dangers and legal considerations associated with carrying a lethal weapon.

Non-lethal Device

In most cases taser guns are not lethal. They temporarily shock an assailant, allowing a victim, security guard or police officer to either get away or take a person into custody in a safe manner. Furthermore, taser guns are not harmful to bystanders.

Available in Small Sizes

Mini-tasers are available in most states, giving citizens the ability to carry a small and unobtrusive self-defence device.

Training Time and Complexity

The training required to use a taser or mini-taser gun is minimal. As long as the metal prongs are aimed at a target they will most likely hit and attach to the assailant.

Affordability

Compared to different types of self defence weapons, taser guns and mini-taser guns are far more affordable.

Effective at a Distance

Taser guns have a firing range, often up to 15 feet, that allows victims or officers to keep a safe distance from an assailant.
