new designer tazer for the girl next door

It resembles a hand-held electric razor and is available in metallic pink, electric blue, titanium silver and black pearl. But it gives out a 50,000-volt jolt that short-circuits brain signals and momentarily incapacitates.

Police forces in the United States have been issued with Tasers since 1999 to subdue violent criminals. A pistol-like civilian version aimed at the self-defense market has been available since 1994.

But the new, lighter, brighter designer version, which was launched in late July with a price tag of around $350, is small enough to tuck into a purse and packs the same paralyzing punch.

"We wanted to make sure that it was something that people were comfortable carrying and didn’t make it look like they were ‘Dirty Harry,’" said Tom Smith, the company’s co-founder and board chairman, referring to the Clint Eastwood movie.

"And it does the job."

Company officials said they have taken steps to ensure that the C2 has ample safeguards, starting with its limited 15-foot (4.5-meter) range. Police can strike a target from 30 feet (9 meters).

The stun gun is shipped inert, meaning it can’t be fired until the buyer registers it, goes through a background check and receives a five-digit activation code from the company.

When fired, the Taser shoots out paper confetti that identifies the serial number registered to its owner. One-on-one training also is available for an additional fee.

"We’re hoping that we’re doing everything we can to ensure to the best our ability that it’s used correctly and if it’s not, that we can identify the user," said Smith.
