    Taser, Taser, Taser!

    I completed the TASER instructor school about a month or so ago, but to day was my first time "taking the ride" on the Taser. I took a ride with the probes spread out and then took another "drive stun" with the end of the Taser only. That was a shocking experience!

    Anyone have thought or questions about the TASER?

    They hurt, and can make Marines squeal like little girls, which makes for good videos.

    Did you have to take the shot or was it voluntary?

    I was told that we didnt have to if we didnt want to.
    Which made me think,peope in this the world really are turning into a bunch of pansies.

    It was voluntary, however I am the instructor so it really wasn't completely voluntary. Even though Taser doesn't require the basic level instructors to be Tased, I wanted to be a credible, lead from the front instructor.

    I can tell you that the wires spread out hurt a lot worse than the drive stun to the shoulder. It is interesting how it works.

    I've been hit lots of times and have been an instructor and armorer for a few years... I'll say it works.

    Thats me. I dont think I would respect it if I didnt know what it felt like.

    We were supposed to get certified a few weeks ago, but the class got canceled because the instructor had some family problems. It should be coming up soon.

    I can't wait. Ok, maybe I can. I wanted to get a stun gun for my sister to carry and have her test it on me, but no such luck.

    I got zapped by 50,000 volts in 1984 by another officer that borrowed one and zapped me in the leg,they will get your attention quick,In a rural High school it wasn't unusual to get zapped with a cattle prod walking past an open locker from time to time

    The stun gun only effects the sensory nerves. Which induces pain compliance. The Taser, when deployed with the barbs spread out, effects the sensory nerves and the motor nerves, which takes away your ability for the brain to send information to the body, so you can't think to move.

    Ahh, the old high school days!! Cattle prods were a staple in our school. In shop class we learned about capacitors and cattle prods were a thing of the past.

    While I think Tasers are a great idea, just a reminder that everyone who considers a Taser (or OC) that they need a plan for what happens *after* they deploy the stuff.

    For people who can't run away (like the elderly or infirm), they need to re-think these options.

    Ok. I took another ride on the Taser again today. Dang that hurt! I'm not doing that again. My calves exploded and I feel like I ran six miles. But it was my first time to teach the class and I was teaching all of my fellow SWAT guys. They all took a ride, so I had to also. Funny thing though, as soon as it was over I just busted up laughing. Everyone thought I was tough and sadistic, but I was really just that glad that it was over. It looked something like this;

    I did Taser two Captains today. One was a probe deployment.
