Self-defense is a serious consideration for many people, whether it be at home or in public spaces. However, finding the ideal type of non-lethal protection can be challenging. Pepper spray can be effective, as long as it reaches the intended target. Stun guns have decent stopping power, but they must make direct contact with an assailant. One solution gaining in popularity is the Taser, a pistol-like product that fires two electronic probes into the attacker's skin, followed by a debilitating jolt of electricity. Tasers combine the accuracy of a handgun with the stopping power of a stun gun, but without the lethality and required licensing of a firearm. If you're in the market for an effective but non-lethal self-defense tool, a holster-carried Taser with a 15 foot range is definitely worth considering, and we have created a shortlist of the best models available to professionals and civilians alike.
