Taser energy weapons are designed to be an effective non-lethal tool to immobilize an attacker. The popular Pulse or Pulse+ civilian versions of the widely used law enforcement devices from Axon, provide the same knock-down punch, but are designed specifically for civilian self-defense. Taser also offers the security officer specific model, the Taser X1, and other models in the professional series.
In a world where violence happens, we must be thankful that deadly force is rarely the necessary answer. Having a tool that is designed to be non-lethal could be extremely beneficial in many circumstances where a firearm isn’t the best tool for the desired resolution.
As with any tool that is designed to be used in self-defense, it is important to receive training. Bearco instructor Barret Kendrick certified Master Instructor for Taser’s Civilian program. We offer courses both for security personnel and civilians wanting to own and carry one for self-defense.
