The TASER Pulse is the latest evolution in the revolutionary TASER line. With the Pulse, TASER has now taken the TASER from being a belt worn duty item for police and reduced it in size to be a concealed carry protective device. Never has there been a less-lethal device that has been this light weight, compact, and powerful until now. Taser International has achieved all of these innovations without sacrificing any of the features or stopping power that has allowed the TASER to revolutionize law enforcement.
With the TASER Pulse you are getting a complete self defense package that includes the Pulse, two cartridges, a target, lithium battery pack, and storage pouch. Taser encourages new owners to try out their Pulse and with registration will replace it if you need to drop it to evade a dangerous situation. Your Pulse has a number of features that make it desirable and effective for concealed carry. With a subcompact design and intuitive user interface, those who have carried pistols will be comfortable with the Pulse immediately. The pulse has shaved safeties and angled iron sights for no-snag drawing and more comfortable carry. The integrated laser allows immediate targeting as soon as you flip the safety switch.
Taser International has a commitment to their customers safety that is demonstrated by the "Safe Escape Product Replacement Program" which has been a staple of TASERS corporate policy since inception. If you use your Pulse in self defense and leave it at the scene, TASER will replace the device free of charge. This allows you to incapacitate your attacker for 30 seconds and make an escape to safety without worrying about retrieving your Pulse.
Brand name speaks for itself. Quality is great as you would expect. I got it for a great price using Keepshooting's 15 Percent discount offer that comes to my in-box every month or so. Also used reward points so that helped get the price even lower. Very light and cartridges seat snug and securely. Comes with two cartridges. Wish Keepshooting stocked replacement cartridges but they are readily available elsewhere. Fifteen-foot range means getting pretty close to the situation but if you are looking for a non-lethal option for personal defense, then this is the way to go. Light enough to take jogging or biking so it would be a good thing to have along when you are out on some desolate stretch of road/trail and find yourself confronted by a feral or just plain vicious dog that sets after you with that "I want to rip your leg off" attitude. This happened to me once and I just barely got away from him on my bike. If I were jogging, I would have been dead meat. Not sure how this works on non-humans but this might just get you out of a nasty confrontation. As for using on a human antagonist during a life or death personal defense situation, this is far better in terms of safety (distance) and take down power than your average stun gun. We have had a couple of joggers killed over the past couple of years in my city. If they had had one of these, they might still be around today.
