Taser Notices Intent to Serve Subpoena for Information on Old NIJ Tests in Taser v. Stinger
Date:2/22/2008

Fails to Disclose Test Dates in Press Release

TAMPA, Fla., Feb. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Stinger Systems, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: STIY) a leader in electro-stun technologies announced today that as required pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 45(b)(1), Taser International (Nasdaq: TASR) has noticed Stinger Systems, Inc. in Taser International, Inc. v. Stinger Systems, Inc. (Federal Case CV07-0042-PHX-MHM) of Taser's intent to serve a subpoena duce tecum on the National Institutes of Justice for information on its dated tests comparing Taser's model X-26 projectile stun gun to early versions of Stinger's model S-200 projectile stun gun and that the study was commissioned over a year ago.

In publishing selected portions of the unfinished National Institute of Justice report of the comparison study in a press release yesterday, Taser failed to disclose that this as yet incomplete NIJ report was being updated with information about current versions of Stinger's S-200 projectile stun gun. The study was commissioned in 2005 prior to the S-200 even being designed (http://www.ojp.gov/nij/awards/2005_solicitation.htm).

In the press release, Taser also failed to publish reports of a recent medical research report documenting a scientific comparison of Taser's M26 and X-26 model stun guns and current versions of Stinger's model S-200 stun gun. A new study led by Wayne McDaniel, Ph.D. of the University of Missouri recently showed that the S-200 technology is much different from the Taser brand products. A recent study confirmed that peak amperage (current) by the Taser brand products was approximately 75% higher and 750% higher than the S-200 with the X-26 and M-26 models respectively. Taser International's sales literature states that it is amperage (current) that matters for electrical safety.

Ron Bellistri, acting C.E.O. of Stinger Systems, stated, "The Stinger S- 200 has demonstrated comparable knock-down power to the Taser devices. We now have independent data from individuals from a premier university that confirms that the S-200 achieves this level of incapacitation while delivering peak current levels to the animals that are only a fraction of the levels delivered by the Taser devices."

Robert Gruder continued to state for Stinger, "With its state of the art production models of the S-200 projectile stun gun, Stinger is making inroads into electronic incapacitation device markets. The Washington State Department of Correction recently selected Stinger's S-200 projectile stun gun for purchase over Taser's M-26 and X-26 projectile stun guns. The State of New Mexico has awarded Stinger Systems, Inc. a general services contract for its S-200 product. In my opinion, Taser's actions yesterday and its release of similarly incomplete information by direct marketing to law enforcement and correction agencies considering purchase of the Stinger S-200 projectile stun gun smack of utter desperation to maintain a market for its older and, in my further opinion, less competitive, M-26 and X-26 technologies."
