The TASER® X1 is a law enforcement-grade self-defense weapon that fires electrical probes up to 15 feet away. The probes, once they successfully hit a target, emit shocks that are similar to a body’s natural electrical impulses. What this does, is it interrupts these impulses to cause a multitude of effects, including falling to the ground, involuntary muscle contractions, freezing in place, vertigo, ect.. Additionally, this TASER® does not rely on pain as a deterrent since some individuals, such as drug addicts or drunks, might have a high pain threshold. When fired, the cartridges don’t only release two probes, they also eject 20-30 confetti-like Anti-felon ID tags for marking criminals. After a cartridge has been used the X1 has two metal electrodes on the front that work as a 50,000-volt contact stun gun if the probes miss. The unit is easy to handle because it is ambidextrous, with a safety switch on each side, and it also has a built-in LASER sight. The Central Information Display (CID) on the back of the unit shows battery power levels, major & critical fault indicators, invalid battery, spark duration and more. Lastly, the device is powered by a Performance Power Magazine lithium energy cell, which provides up to 500 five-second electrical discharges. MADE IN USA.
