The TASER C2 Electronic Control Device (ECD) is the most powerful less than lethal option available. TASER C2's are more than "stun gun". TASER C2 ECD's fire probes close to 95mph that pierce the skin or clothing of an attacker, sending electirical signals to the muscles. These signals override the central nervous system, causing immediate lock up of the muscles for 30 seconds or more immobilizing any attacker. TASER C2 ECD's have an effective range of up to 15 feet. This distance allows the user to remain at a safe distance from an attacker and escape a dangerous situation, unlike a stun-gun which must be applied at close range:
All TASER C2 ECD's are equipped with a laser sight and LED flashlight that illuminates the target when the safety cover is in the open position. The laser alone can be an important deterrent in a potential attack and assists the user with an accurate shot. There is no kick or recoil when firing a TASER C2, C2's are easily operated and discharged with on hand (push button firing).
TASER C2's also have the back up capability of a stun gun once the cartridge has been fired or when the C2 is unloaded:
The electric charge from a TASER C2 can be re-applied if necessary, by pressing the button. This is useful in situations where the user cannot easily escape to safety.
TASER offers a Lifetime Replacement Guarantee because your life is worth more than the cost of a TASER ECD:
We recommend that when using a TASER C2 ECD in self defense, set it on the ground and escape to safety.

A TASER can (in many situations) be taken places where a firearm cannot. A TASER is not considered a firearm by the ATF but it may be classified as a ‘weapon’ depending on the state, county or city. TASER will block activation of ECD’s to addresses within the following states/cities: NY, NJ, WI, MI, RI, MA, HI, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC. TASER ownership/use is prohibited in these states, except by Law Enforcement and in some cases, Private Security. Other cities may have additional restrictions or permits required to carry concealed. We encourage buyers to check their local laws prior to purchasing a TASER C2 ECD.
*****There is no longer an application fee for the TASER C2 background check.*****
Buyer must be 18 years or older and a non-felon U.S. resident to activate any consumer/civilian TASER ECD. TASER patches into a database of public records through Lexus Nexus to verify felony records. The application takes about 5 minutes to complete online and the results are usually available upon completion. In some cases, when the public records information is either incomplete or contradictory, TASER may ask that the customer provide a copy of their Driver’s License, Passport, or other form of identification. TASER ECD buyers are encouraged to check their local laws on the ownership and use of electronic control devices and stun guns in their area. TASER ECD sales are prohibited to residents of NY, NJ, WI, MI, RI, MA, and HI.
Once the background check is completed (approx. 5 minutes), you will be given a 5 digit code to enter through the firing button of the C2 ECD. This process will ‘activate’ their TASER C2. You will also be sent an email with directions on how to enter their code.
