Oftentimes, we hear people refer to the TASER M26C as “old reliable” as its been around for quite a while and its well known. Taser hasn’t made any changes to it since it released it, and, really, why should they?
The TASER M26C is pretty straightforward, easy to use and conveys to anyone looking down the “wrong” end of the barrel what’s about to happen. Once in your hand and loaded with a cartridge, a flip of the safety and the red laser is activated. Point the laser at their chest and know that if you have to, you’re pretty much assured that you’ll hit the target and instantly deliver a stun that’ll drop someone to the ground.
TASER Guns don’t require a whole of voltage or amperage. If you research stun guns, you’ll see that everyone is pushing how high the voltage and amperage is on their stun gun. But, with TASER Guns, they work differently. First, since the probes “shoot” outward and penetrate into the target, the need for high voltage is negated. High voltage is needed by stun guns to penetrate to the skin and into the muscles. But, since the probes physically do this, high voltage is unnecessary. And, stun guns require a high amount of amperage to be delivered by the voltage in order to affect the target. But, since TASER’s work by mimicking the body’s electrical frequency, ANY amperage, regardless of how low screws with the human body’s ability to function. Its basically the same frequency that is generated by the brain. When this electrical current is delivered into the body, the brain says I am receiving this electricity, but I don’t know what to do with it. So, it just kinda freaks out the nervous system.
The M26C comes with 4 cartridges and only requires that the user supplies 8 AA batteries for it. Most people buy 16 rechargeable ones and keep 8 on charge ready for switch out. The only other thing you might want to consider buying is a holster to allow you to keep the gun with you when you need it.
Easy to use; Highly effective. TASER M26C.
