The Taser Pulse, A Small Personal Defense Weapon That Packs A PunchTaser International released a whole new electronic control device (ECD) at the 2016 SHOT Show. The self defense device is made for non-law enforcement usage and is named the Pulse. Contrary to the existing C2 weapon intended for civilian use, the Pulse is handgun shaped and is a link between the C2 and the X26 typically utilized by police departments.
Taser designed the Pulse to become more of an intuitive use unit since numerous folks are acquainted with the way a gun works. It offers a low profile thumb safety and angled sights to make it more amenable to concealed carry. The exchangeable cartridge features a 15 feet range.
Similar to the X26, the unit has a built in red laser for targeting. Additionally, the unit uses a LED white light for lighting. Based on my experience with the X26 in real deployments, I found the laser worked well.
Like the C2, the Pulse is built to produce a varying electrical pulse over 30 seconds. The concept is this will make it possible for the user to leave the scene in the event the probes are correctly deployed. This is different from the models marketed to law enforcement officials where the pulse time-span is a lot less: 5 seconds.
