The Dual Defense System (DDS) from Bestex Co. is a handheld, self-defense device that uses high-voltage electricity to completely incapacitate and immobilize an attacker. Delivered by two gas fired probes that can reach up to 17 feet, the high-voltage electricity immobilizes the attacker by disrupting the nervous system and leaves any assailant dizzy and confused for up to 30 minutes. The DDS incorporates the advantages of both a taser and a stun gun into one complete self protection device. Even with its long range, the DDS is accurate, and even if the probes miss the target, the old cassette can be popped off, and a new cassette snapped in. In just a couple of seconds, the DDS can be ready to fire another set of probes. Even without a replacement cassette, the Dual Defense System is still fully fuctional as a stun gun, offering close quarter protection.
