The Taser Pulse, A Small Self Defense Weapon That Packs A Punch

The company Taser International launched a whole new electronic control device (ECD) at the 2016 SHOT Show. The personal defense weapon is made for non-law enforcement use and is named the Pulse. Unlike the existing C2 weapon created for civilian use, the Pulse is handgun shaped and is a link between the C2 as well as the X26 commonly used by police departments.

Taser intended the Pulse to be more of an intuitive use product since many folks are acquainted with the way a gun functions. It features a low profile thumb safety as well as angled sights to make it a lot more amenable to concealed carry. The exchangeable cartridge features a 15 feet range.

Much like the X26, the device possesses a built in red laser for targeting. Moreover, the unit uses a LED white light for lighting. Based on my experience with the X26 in actual deployments, I found the laser performed well.

Just like the C2, the Pulse is made to produce a varied electrical pulse over 30 seconds. The concept is this will allow the user to flee the scene in the event the probes are properly deployed. This differs from the products acquired by law enforcement where the pulse length is a lot less: 5 seconds.
