I shot a generic criminal right in his face.

I live in Texas and, like most Texans, I have a concealed handgun license. It's practical self-defense for the times when you have to go somewhere sketchy. But there are also quite a few obvious drawbacks to carrying a firearm. The prime one is lethality, but a close second is the fact that you can't even enter a bar while carrying.

Of course, exiting bars late at night is one of the times when you're most vulnerable to criminal mischief. Which is why I've been considering a taser. Today at CES 2011, I had a chance to try out one of taser's latest models- the C2. It was compact, and fit well in the palm of my hand. There were two modes. One that allowed it to act as a contact stun-gun, and another that fired a cartridge up to 15 feet.

The zappy-mode was fun. Pressing the button starts it shocking for thirty seconds, and closing the button lid shuts it off. The cartridge mode includes a laser sight that made aiming a blast. I had no trouble blasting my target right in his printed face.

Those leads will keep shocking your assailant for up to thirty seconds, giving you plenty of time to run-away. They can also be re-engaged for another 30 seconds by pressing the button. To pick up a taser of your own (and a free MP3 player. Wait, seriously?) check out Taser's website.
