What is Weapon Confusion? 

It is the tragic occurrence wherein a police officer (unintentionally) discharges their firearm, while intending to deploy the Taser TM. On average, a major incident involving (Gun/Taser) Weapon Confusion like this has occurred in our country every year for the past 22 years, 5 of those incidents were fatal (Taser Training and Weapon Confusion Training are not the same.) 


UpdateSince 2021 there have been 4 major incidents of Weapon Confusion, 3 of the incidents occurred after the April 2021 Minnesota shooting (Daunte Wright.)

What is Primary Guard?
Created by a police officer, designed to support law enforcement agencies that have (or are considering) a non-dominant side carry/control CEW policy. Primary Guard is a choice, and can be one more step (in advance of a critical incident) that law enforcement has taken to reduce unintended gun related deaths, keep the Taser out of the dominant hand (out of the gun hand) with Primary Guard

  • Primary Guard prevents (unholstering) the Taser with the non-dominant hand, and transitioning it to the dominant hand (to deploy.) The practice of "transitioning" the Taser to the dominant hand increases the likelihood of Weapon Confusion, Primary Guard protects against this.

  • Remaining attached to the Taser while on-duty, it serves as a tangible effort towards public safety. Primary Guard is demonstrative of an agency's commitment to reduce Weapon Confusion, an effort that the community can see. Primary Guard reinforces agency policy and community trust, side by side.

  • Primary Guard is currently available at no cost to law enforcement agencies. This is made possible from the support and donations of people across the country, finding common ground in the pursuit to reduce unintended gun related deaths.  Why not, use Primary Guard?


The non-dominant hand is critical to reducing Weapon Confusion. Generally incapable of unholstering the firearm (due to body mechanics.) Developing Taser selection (with the non-dominant hand) into the intended trained response under stress (muscle memory) reduces the likelihood of the firearm being mistakenly selected, in turn reducing the likelihood of Weapon Confusion.
