XREP impact munition as well as ECDs such as the X26, M26 and X3. Note, we
have lowered the recommended point of aim from center of mass to lower-center of mass for front
shots. The blue highlighted area in the adjacent target man represents the preferred target area.
There are three reasons:
a. Simplify targeting for all TASER systems to one easy to remember map, avoiding chest shots

dynamic situation, as is standard for impact munitions
b. When possible, avoiding chest shots with ECDs avoids
the controversy about whether ECDs do or do not affect the
c. Close-spread ECD discharges to the front of the body are more
effective when at least one probe is in the major muscles of the
pelvic triangle or thigh region.
Back shots remain the preferred area when practical.
