TASER® Weapons

TASER� Weapons:


A TASER� is an electroshock weapon that uses electrical current to disrupt voluntary control of muscles. Its manufacturer, Axon, previously known as TASER International, calls the effects "neuromuscular incapacitation" and device's mechanism "Electro-Muscular Disruption (EMD) technology". Someone struck by a TASER experiences stimulation of his or her sensory nerves and motor nerves, resulting in strong involuntary muscle contractions. TASER devices do not rely only on pain compliance, except when used in Drive Stun mode, and are thus preferred by some law enforcement over non-TASER stun guns and other electronic control weapons. At the present time, there is one main police model, the PULSE�.
