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

Taser International introduced a new electronic control device (ECD) at the 2016 SHOT Show. The self defense device is designed for non-law enforcement use and is referred to as the Pulse. Compared with the existing C2 weapon intended for civilian use, the Pulse is handgun shaped and is a link amongst the C2 as well as the X26 frequently utilized by police departments.

Taser intended the Pulse to become more of an intuitive use unit since many individuals are accustomed to the way a gun operates. It offers a low profile thumb safety and angled sights to make it more amenable to concealed carry. The exchangeable cartridge possesses a 15 feet range.

Just like the X26, the unit features a built in red laser for targeting. Additionally, the device utilizes a LED white light for lighting. Based on my knowledge with the X26 in real deployments, I found the laser performed well.

Just like the C2, the Pulse is designed to deliver a varied electrical pulse over 30 seconds. The concept is this will enable the user to leave the scene in case the probes are correctly deployed. This is different from the models marketed to law enforcement officials in which the pulse duration is much less: 5 seconds.
