So, I'll be in a gun-free zone a lot, and want some protection.

In addition to other measures, I think I'll carry a taser.
(ie, don't bother suggesting other measures; I'm already pursuing those as well)

But, which is the best kind, when considered as a substitute for a concealed handgun?
(For a school environment, where there is ordinary crime, but also the threat of school shootings.)

I don't know anything at all about tasers... but I would prefer a smaller, more lightweight one for that role, while still maintaining maximum range for that kind of weapon, and while still maintaining plenty of power.
Isn't there also a kind that can be reloaded quickly for more shots? Is that available to civilians?

C-2 taser, only one shot tho, but can be used as a stun device after deploying. Leo's have a model that fires more than one shot, dont know if civilians can get it. I carry a C-2 in a belt holster, rides well with very little notice.

I like the idea of it being used as a stun device after firing... but how does that work?

Also, isn't it a bit difficult to aim? It looks like the ergonomics of it are very weird.

Their website also says "the laser turns on when the safety cover is off" ... What safety cover? I can't tell how that works from their site either.

I carry a C2 as well. Since I'm in California, I can't CCW. Probably the next best thing next to a firearm. I'm pleased with it. Simple to use. It has a laser red dot sight and flashlight. Just put the red dot on the assailant, ensure your at most within 15ft and press the button. While the assailant has fallen o the ground you can use the taser as a stun gun simultaneously if multiple attackers are present.

The only thing I dislike is that it has about 30 tiny confetti things that disperse once the cartridge is deployed. It leaves serial numbers that can trace back to the owner of the taser. But I understand its to keep us law abiding citizens in place...I guess.
