The following story is just one example of how the Taser M26C can protect St. Louis store owners and retail shops…
Freddy started hanging around old man Benson’s sporting goods store when he was just ten years old. Now sixteen, and saving up his cash for college, he ran the cash register on weekends when the owner took a few hours off to spend time with his daughter and grandkids.
Weekend afternoons were pretty quiet in the urban St. Louis neighborhood. Most folks did their shopping at the mall these days, though many of the downtown St. Louis office workers still stopped by during the week. For Freddy, it usually meant a chance to catch up on inventory or even the rare opportunity to get some more homework done.
Melissa, who helped her father run the store, had spent some time and energy upgrading the store’s security in the past few months. She and her father didn’t believe in stashing a gun behind the counter – they didn’t want to run the risk that it might be used against them, or stolen at night and used in some other violent crime.
So Melissa picked up a Taser M26C. She figured that if someone came in and threatened her father or one of her clerks, they could point and shoot it just like a gun.
As the Bensons enjoyed their afternoon in the park, Freddy caught up on some of his school work. He couldn’t wait to enroll in pre-med courses that fall. As he looked up from his textbook, he noticed an unfamiliar figure hovering around the store. The guy was easily a foot taller than Freddy, and weighed about two hundred fifty pounds.
“Can I help you?” Freddy shouted.
The man darted his eyes at Freddy in between glances at the four corners of the store.
Freddy leaned up off his chair, and asked, “Is there something I can help you find?”
Suddenly, the man darted toward Freddy, eyes ablaze. He bellowed, “Yeah, You can help me find all the money in your cash register, punk! And when you’re done with that, I want you to come in to the back room and get that safe open!”
Freddy noticed a bulge in the man’s sweatshirt, and didn’t want to risk what might happen if that was any kind of weapon. In a split second, he grabbed the Taser M26C from underneath the counter. Freddy locked the laser sight onto his target and pulled the trigger.
Even though the robber was fifteen feet away, two small darts found their mark and channeled 50,000 volts of electricity over the pair of wires. The criminal collapsed, and Freddy knew from biology class that the attacker’s muscles wouldn’t stop contracting until he was stuck in the fetal position.
After the cops and paramedics arrived, Freddy learned that the St. Louis robber was high on meth, looking for cash for a quick score. Without the Taser M26C, who knows what he might have done. Freddy knew that, in that state, the guy could even have survived a gunshot and still done some serious damage.
Closing the downtown St. Louis store that day, he couldn’t wait to swing by Tower Grove Park and give Melissa the news.
