"A Taser is an electroshock weapon sold by Axon, formerly TASER International. It fires two small barbed darts intended to puncture the skin and remain attached to the target, at 180 feet (55 m) per second. Their range extends from 15 feet (4.57 m) for non-law enforcement Tasers to 35 feet (10.67 m) for police officer Tasers. The darts are connected to the main unit by thin insulated copper wire and deliver a modulated electric current designed to disrupt voluntary control of muscles, causing "neuromuscular incapacitation". The effects of a Taser device may only be localized pain or strong involuntary long muscle contractions, based on the mode of use and connectivity of the darts.

"The term Taser was initially "TASER", abbreviating "Thomas A. Swift Electronic Rifle" after the 1911 novel Tom Swift and His Electric Rifle, and has been trademarked as a brand name of Axon, but has become informally used to refer generically to similar devices."

As of today, there are still a number of places where you can purchase civilian TASER® weapons, but really only two companies that consistently sell Law Enforcement TASER® Weapons with a Warranty. Axon has gotten rid of all of their Law Enforcement TASER® Distributors and Dealers. So law enforcement TASER® Weapons can now only be purchased directly from the manufacturer, and from one other independent company that is not affiliated with Axon, Accredited Security. Axon sells to law enforcement agencies only - at very high prices. Accredited is neither an Axon Dealer nor a Distributor, but an independent company that sells Close-out, Refurbished and Pre-owned Law Enforcement TASER® Weapons at very substantial savings. Quality refurbished law enforcement TASER® weapons can be legally purchased by federal, state, county, and municipal law enforcement agencies and officers, corrections officers, probation officers, reserve officers, marshals, wardens, rangers, security agencies and officers, bailiffs, bail bondsmen, fugitive recovery agents, and qualified civilians at discount prices - just a fraction of the price of new.
