"A Taser is an electroshock weapon sold by Axon, formerly TASER International.
It fires two small barbed darts intended to puncture the skin and remain attached to the target,
at 180 feet (55 m) per second. Their range extends from 15 feet (4.57 m) for non-law enforcement
Tasers to 35 feet (10.67 m) for police officer Tasers. The darts are connected to the main unit by
thin insulated copper wire and deliver a modulated electric current designed to disrupt voluntary
control of muscles, causing "neuromuscular incapacitation". The effects of a Taser device may only
be localized pain or strong involuntary long muscle contractions, based on the mode of use and connectivity of the darts.
"The term Taser was initially "TASER", abbreviating "Thomas A. Swift Electronic Rifle" after the 1911 novel Tom Swift
and His Electric Rifle, and has been trademarked as a brand name of Axon, but has become informally used to refer
generically to similar devices."
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This is an electroshock weapon that uses electrical current to disrupt voluntary control of muscles.
Its manufacturer calls the effects "neuromuscular incapacitation"
and the 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 are three law enforcement models: the TASER 7, the X2 two-shot model, the
X26P and the
available for sale to the public in a refurbished version with laser sight and LED warning light.
It comes with various accessories, including a non-rechargeable battery with a 3 year duration, 15 foot cartridge and
holster or carrying case.
