Let your attacker know you’re not someone to mess with even at a distance. A reliable TASER can be easily used on your target even if they are still approaching.
This product can save your life
Less-lethal self-defense has recently been taken to a whole new level – the TASER energy weapon. Police departments throughout the United States are starting to deploy TASER energy weapons for their duty officers. It has been proven that TASER weapons are far more effective than any other self-defense weapon on the market today.
Effective Target Zone
You can take down someone bigger and stronger than you instantly
TASER uses the powerful Electro-muscular Disruption (EMS) technology. TASER delivers a powerful 18-26 Watt signal that completely overrides the assailant’s central nervous system and directly controls their skeletal muscles. Unlike the stun gun, when the probes touch the assailant’s body, it causes immediate uncontrollable contraction of the muscle tissues. While a determined assailant who has a high tolerance for electrical stimulation can fight through the 17-14 Watt stun gun, the assailant hit with the TASER has no choice but to fall down regardless of mind power and body strength. You can take down anyone who is bigger and stronger than you by simply pulling the trigger.
You can take down the assailant from 15 feet away
Pull the trigger and the TASER will shoot two small probes up to 15 feet to the assailant. A 15 foot range provides a great distance from you to the assailant. This can significantly reduce the chance of injury by avoiding a close confrontation.
You don’t need any permits to own it.
TASER is not considered a firearm — they’re legal to carry in most states without permits (including California). Prohibited from citizen use in IL, MA, RI, NY, NJ, WI, MI, HI and certain cities and counties. Legal but with restrictions in CT, FL, IN, NC, ND, OH and WA.

Frequently Asked Questions
None. The manufacturer rename M18L to M26C in 2009. They are the exact same unit.How does the background check work?
We will do the background check for you before processing the order.I have a felony record, does that mean I cannot purchase a Taser?
We can perform a background check for you with the manufacturer for free before we process your order. If you pass, you can go ahead and order and if you don’t, it won’t cost you anything and you have nothing to lose.How does the background check work?

Upon firing, compressed nitrogen projects two TASER probes up to 15 feet at a speed of 180 feet per second. The probes are connected by thin insulated wire back to the TASER device. An electrical signal transmits throughout the region where the probes make contact with the body or clothing. The result is an instant impairment of the attacker’s neuromuscular control and severely impaired to perform coordinated action. The ADVANCED TASER M18L uses an automatic timing mechanism to apply the electric charge for 5 seconds enough time for you to flee the area and get to safety.
How can the TASER system be so effective yet be generally safe?
TASER technology does not depend upon impact or body penetration to achieve its effect. Its pulsating electrical output interferes with communication between the brain and the muscular system,resulting in loss of muscular control. The electrical pulse from TASER devices It overstimulates the nerves that control muscle movement it affects them in their natural mode. The TASER is like a remote control that takes away the ability of the target to control his own body – but it does so with minimum violence or injury because it uses a communication mechanism rather than relying on physical injury.
Does the TASER device affect the heart or a cardiac pacemaker?
The electrical output from TASER devices is well below the levels required to cause cardiac arrest, or to physically damage an implantable cardiac device.
Isn’t high voltage lethal?
High voltage, in itself, is not dangerous. One can receive a 25,000-volt shock of static electricity from a doorknob on a dry day without harm. The physiological effect of electrical shock is determined by: the current, its duration, and the power source that produces the shock. The typical household current of 110 volts is dangerous because it can pump many amperes of current throughout the body indefinitely. Remember that the household wall outlet is connected to massive power plants with virtually unlimited power output capability. By contrast, the ADVANCED TASER power supply consists of 8 AA alkaline batteries capable of supplying 26 watts of electrical power for a few seconds.
What are the aftereffects?
A person hit with a TASER device will usually fall to the ground and may feel dazed for several seconds. Generally, recovery is fast and the effects stop the very instant that the M18 TASER device shuts off. Some will experience critical response amnesia and others will experience tingling sensations afterwards. The pulsating electrical output causes involuntary muscle contractions and a resulting sense of vertigo. It can momentarily stun or render immobilized. Some individuals have experienced athletic type injuries and injuries from falls. Although designed to maximize safety, the TASER is not risk free and should not be used lightly.
Must the probes penetrate the body to be effective?
No. The electrical current will “jump” up to 2 inches as long as both probes are attached to clothing or skin. At most, only the 3/8-inch needlepoint will penetrate the skin. Both probes need to be within a cumulative 2 inches of the body to stop an attacker (e.g. if one probe is touching, the other can be up to 2 inches away, or each probe can be one inch away – the total spark distance is a maximum of 2 inches for both probes together).
Basically, no matter where you strike the attacker, both probes have to be within 2” of the body cumulative (think of the probes being away from the body), not 2” away from each other. This was the reason the TASER is 50,000 volts; if someone is wearing a thick jacket the current and the T wave will still “jump” to the subject.
What if the probes miss?
The TASER system can work if one probe hits a human and the second falls on grass or dirt as the power may connect through the ground. However, the results depreciate substantially if the second probe lands on concrete, asphalt or not all on wood floors. If the probes miss, the M18 TASER device can be used in a touch-stun mode by aggressively touching the front of the device to the target. The user is thus provided with two backups. A secondary Cartridge holder is available that holds a backup cartridge below the TASER’s handgrip. A final backup if the probes miss the target is the touch stun feature. Should the user miss or engage a second attacker, the ADVANCED TASER device can applied directly to the target and it will work like a powerful touch-stun device.
What is the best-shot at maximum range?
As long as the spread of the probes is at least four inches, the TASER device should be extremely effective. To ensure that the spread is greater than four inches, the ADVANCED TASER should be fired at a target several feet away. The optimum shot is from seven to ten feet away form the target to achieve maximum effect using a 15-foot cartridge. Although the TASER has been found to have a high degree of effectiveness, it is not a “magic bullet.” You should always have a backup plan and be prepared to use the touch-stun capability in case you miss the target or do not get both probes within the required 2-inch cumulative arc limitation.
