New smaller, colorful TASERs aim to be pocketbook staple

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Petite Tasers in vivid colors are on their way to the consumer market, where the manufacturer hopes a sleek version of the cumbersome weapons used mainly by law officers will become a pocketbook staple.

"Not only did we shrink it down in size, but the form now looks more like a PDA," said Taser International spokesman Steve Tuttle. "It's a new generation product."

The $299 Taser C2, which goes on sale Monday, is the company's fourth consumer model but the first designed to attract those turned off by traditional stun guns, Mr. Tuttle said. Available in a selection of colors, including "black pearl," "titanium silver," "electric blue" or "metallic pink," the weapon is small enough to fit in a purse and is designed to resemble a sleek phone or PDA, he said.
