TASER devices can stop threats from up to 15 ft. (4.5 m). Or, you can use the TASER device as a contact stun device - a powerful backup capability. In field uses by law enforcement against dangerous suspects, TASER technology has among the lowest injury rates of any force option. However, TASER devices are not risk free and may cause injuries, primarily from falls or physical exertion. Use of TASER devices should not be undertaken lightly. Detailed product warnings are available.
A TASER C2 Electronic Control device is easier to use and more reliable than any other use-of-force option. TASER energy devices are field proven up to 95% effective in actual police use. TASER International makes the only device that can truly incapacitate people under the influence of PCP and other dangerous drugs.
TASER technology has been available to citizens concerned with self-defense for over a decade. TASER devices are effective with a hit anywhere on the body. To be effective for self-defense, bullets risk more lethal consequences, striking the head or vital organs. Similarly, chemical or pepper sprays must hit an assailant in the face - a much less reliable alternative in fast moving confrontations. And, in a windy environment, sprays can be blown back onto the user. TASER Personal Protection Devices can be used more effectively and reliably than many other self-defense technologies.
Over 270,000 law enforcement professionals in 40 countries have come to rely on TASER devices to protect life. When lives are on the line, police around the world rely on TASER systems to quickly incapacitate even the most dangerous subjects.
Protection is more than personal, it is a duty to care for the ones we love. With the TASER C2, you can have police proven, effective protection that is convenient and legal to carry in most states without special permits required. * The TASER C2 is compact, lightweight, and easy to use.
*TASER devices are not considered firearms by the U.S. government. They can be legally carried (concealed or open) without a permit required in 40 states. Prohibited citizen use in DC, HI, MI, RI, NY, NJ, WI and certain cities and counties. CT and IL legal with restrictions. Check local laws on carrying electronic control devices.
When fired, the TASER C2 will deliver a 30-second energy burst to incapacitate a threat. During this window of opportunity, you can leave the TASER C2 to keep the attacker incapacitated while you escape. Send us a copy of the police report showing you used your C2 to protect yourself, and we will replace your unit free of charge, Your life is worth more to us than the cost of a TASER C2.

Are TASER electronic control devices considered firearms?
No. TASER devices are not classified as firearms by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATF) because TASER cartridges use compressed, inert nitrogen gas to launch the probes instead of gun powder.
What is a TASER C2?
A TASER C2 is a personal safety electronic control device that can stop threats up to 15 feet away. It works by launching out two probes up to 15 feet from a disposable TASER cartridge. The probes deliver a scientifically designed electric signal that makes muscles lock up, therefore temporarily incapacitating an attacker for 30 seconds so that you can get to safety and call 911.
Is a TASER C2 a lethal weapon?
No. In fact, TASER devices have been proven statistically to dramatically reduce injury rates to suspects and police officers as well as to increase personal safety and community security compared to any other use of force option. However, TASER devices are not risk free and may cause injuries, primarily from falls or physical exertions, so their use should be taken seriously.
Is the TASER C2 more dangerous to a person with a pacemaker?
Both the human heart and pacemakers are able to withstand the power of a defibrillator that emits around 300 joules ("joolz") of energy. A TASER C2 emits less than one joule of energy. TASER devices have been used over one million times by either TASER International or law enforcement officials without causing a single death.
Please describe the required activation background check process; how do you prevent selling a TASER to criminals?
The TASER C2 is shipped out inactive and you will need to pass an identification verifcation (a felony background check) to get the activation code. TASER International has taken on the task of screening the purchasers to make sure convicted felons can't activate a TASER C2. You can do this over the internet or if you don't have a computer, you can do it over the phone and a trained operator will give you the code that is unique to your TASER C2 to unlock it. Once the TASER C2 is unlocked, you will never need to do it again.
What are AFID tags?
AFID stands for Anti-Felon Identification tags. Each cartridge contains 20-30 small, confetti-like tags that have the serial number of the TASER cartridge imprinted on them. If a TASER device is misused, the police will find these tags and can use them to identify the owner of the TASER device that was used.
Is it legal to carry a TASER C2?
Yes, but there are some limitations. You cannot carry any TASER device on an airplane (it must be in your checked in luggage) or take them into public buildings like courtrooms or in some schools. If you are over the age of 18, they can be legally possessed in 43 states. You currently cannot possess a TASER device in DC, HI, MA, MI, NJ, NY, and RI, as well as a few cities like Annapolis, Baltimore, Chicago, and Philadelphia. Some restrictions apply to CT and IL. Please check your local laws before purchasing or carrying any type of electronic control device.
Are there any restrictions to fly or travel internationally with a TASER C2?
When traveling by air, TASER devices need to be placed in your checked bags and not carried on the plane. Also, do not try to take it out of the country - please leave it at home if you are traveling abroad. Please check with your airline or other carrier for any new guidelines in advance of traveling.
Is using a TASER C2 similar to shooting a gun?
Not exactly. There isn't a kick or recoil with a TASER device but you will hear a loud pop like a balloon popping.
How many times can I use a cartridge?
The TASER C2 comes with one TASER cartridge. As each TASER cartridge can only be used once, you may want to consider purchasing additional cartridges.
How does the TASER C2 shoot out the probes?
The TASER cartridge uses compressed and inert nitrogen to launch out the probes. The TASER cartridge is a one-time use system and delivers the probes and AFID tags at approximately 100 MPH.
What if I miss my target?
The end of the TASER C2 can also act as a powerful contact stun device which is a powerful backup capability.
What is the Lifetime Replacement Guarantee?
In the event you use the TASER C2 to defend yourself you can set the device down and run to safety. If the TASER C2 is stolen during your use of it for self-defense, file a police report and send a copy to TASER International for a free replacement unit. Your life is worth more than the cost of a TASER C2.
Does it work on animals?
Law enforcement officers have successfully incapacitated vicious animals with various TASER systems. The TASER C2 was designed for human use which is why the probes are deployed vertically. Most animals bodies are horizontal to the ground meaning you will have to adjust the way you hold the device in order to get both probes to hit your target.
Is there a money-back guarantee?
The TASER C2 comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee less shipping and handling on unactivated units. Once you've activated and registered the TASER C2, we are unable to issue a refund.
Is there a warranty?
Every TASER C2 comes with a 90-day warranty that ensures that the TASER C2 is free of defects in workmanship or materials for 90 days from the point of attempted activation. You may also purchase a one or three year "No Questions Asked" warranty during the activation process that guarantees TASER International will repair or replace any TASER C2 that fails to function for any reason for the length of the warranty.
