Introduction to TASER Self-Defense Class

 

(FREE)

 

First, let's dispel some myths:

 

Myth#1:  I have to be exposed to a TASER device (Riding the Lightning) in order to be able to carry one.

Fact:  Not only is there NO requirement for civilian students to be exposed to the TASER, it is specifically forbidden in these classes.

Myth #2:  I need a special license to carry a TASER Self-Defense device.

Fact: Since TASER Self-Defense devices are NOT classified as firearms, there are no special licenses or registrations necessary to legally carry one. It is important to know your state/local regulations concerning TASERS.

This class is designed to provide an overview and introduction to TASER Self-Defense products and the technology that is involved with "energy weapons". There will be an overview of the TASER technology, differences in law enforcement & civilian models, discussion of legal considerations with a TASER Self-Defense weapon, as well as various models that are available and features offered in each model. This class will also include an Instructor led demonstration of a TASER deployment into a conductive target.  The purpose of this class is to introduce students to both the capabilities and model offerings within the TASER Self-Defense line of products.  Students will also be given a code for substantial savings if they choose to purchase a TASER product.
