Founded in 1993, TASER is a company that produces self defense and law enforcement weapons in a variety of non-lethal categories. Their latest creation is Pulse, a high-tech, subcompact weapon with a concealed carry design that is capable of immobilizing an attacker for up to thirty seconds from up to fifteen feet away. In order to give you a familiar, discreet carry capability, Pulse uses a pistol shape and measures 5.25″ x 4.75″ x 1.25″ with a weight of a half a pound. Pulse also packs LASER assisted targeting, color contrasting iron sights, built-in LED flashlight for target acquisition and a safe escape product replacement program (if Pulse is left at the scene of a self-defense incident TASER will replace it free of charge). There are certain restrictions and requirements depending on where you live, so check with TASER or local law enforcement before you purchase.
