Thread: I got TASED today...

  1. I got TASED today...

    I did a refresher today and always underestimate how bad it is. I've had broken knees, arms, ankles and even a broken neck once and the TASER hurts worse. The BIG difference is that the TASER is only 5 seconds. I also did a pepper spray refresher, so had the pleasure of taking a face full of that an hour before getting TASED.

    Interesting day....

    Given a choice, I'd take the Taser over the pepper spray. Taser wears off in a few minutes, the pepper spray can last for hours.

  4. I totally agree. The TASER wears off almost immediately. I'm still feeling effects of the pepper spray almost 3 hours later.

    I made the mistake one time of telling an instructor that I would take a ride if he would. I didnt know at the time that he was an instructor. I found out the hard way.

    I would also take a ride before I got sprayed AGAIN!!

    But I would rather run than take either


    The shock shield is pretty cool too, especially in the dark.

    You guys get paid to have all that fun, or is it strictly on a volunteer basis?

  8. I had to pay for the ride. It was a re-cert. They don't require that you take the ride, but the paperwork reflects that. If it ever came down to a legal battle over using the TASER, it looks better if you know what it's capable of first hand.

    I get zapped every two years as part of my military training. We train with both Taser and pepper spray. I make it a point to get the training NCO to schedule the training sessions on different days. I got zapped 11 times so far. Of those 4 were during training. Damn I hate those FNG types!

    Since it's part of my military duty, I guess you could say that they pay me to work.

    Taser hurt way wost but I'd do it again, the 5 seconds is better then the spray. My eyes looked blood shot for almost a full day.
