  • Been Tasered?

    Our service started using tasers last summer. During the training we had the opportunity to take it or not as it was voluntary. I took the five second ride and swear I will NEVER do it again! It was completely awful and scared the crap out of me!
    However, the Taser is such a wonderful tool and has been used serveral times now to avoid potential high risk situations. Our members think the Taser is a great tool and can't say enough good things about it!

    I would rather be tasered again than sprayed. At least when the five seconds were up it was over. I hate that lingering feeling you get from the spray.

        Yup I was tased during my academy. We were the last class to get hit ( Our administration wouldn't let new recruits do it after us). I took the full probe hit/ 5 second ride. All I can say is I would rather get the ride than the OC. OC stuck around for 45 minutes. ugh. Tase me anyday.

          Our department carries them, I love it I have never had to use it though everytime so far that I have put the laser on them instant compliance, in the begining our department used it a lot but them after word got around everyone now just gives up...

          I also have had to ride the lighting and never again. I will stop carrying it first, spray me any day over the taser at least I can kind of fight back when sprayed, but the taser leaves me feeling completely helpess and its not a feeling I like....

              Been tasered twice, both times it wasn't the full shock so I never got the whole amnesia thing you re supposed to get with the 5 sec ride. Absolutely never again. I can put OC on my tacos I've been exposed so many times.

                I have never really heard of amnesia from the 5 second ride. About 24 folks out of my class took the full probe hit and ride. I saw plenty of taser tourettes, but no amnesia 8) And it was all on videotape. That's fun to watch. My family gets a kick out of seeing me get hit heheh.

                  I took my 5 minute ride today. I tried to mentally prepare myself for it but really, it was WAY beyond anything I expected. I'll take the OC thank you very much. Makes you wonder how guys you see in videos take 5 hits.

                    I'm with mouth. I have been through both and that Taser scares the hell out of me. I'll shower in OC before I get Tased again.

                        Rode the lightning about a month ago.Won't do it again.But I would rather be Tased than sprayed.OC affects me for several days afterwards.I guess it gets into my dry skin or something.

                          As one of our department taser instrutors, I have taken the full ride from both the M-26 and the X-26. Both feel the same and uncomfortable as heck. For me, the effects of the taser lasted longer then 5 seconds. I felt drained for a few hours afterwards.

                            I have taken the 5 second ride from the x26 a couple times. I will never do it again. Seems like atleast 1 out of 3 people I shoot with it end up crapping themselves.

                            Since being issued the taser guys around the station watch their back bigtime. Paranoia. What a wonderful thing.

                              Took the ride twice myself. The second time I was able to stay standing an even take a step.

                              Still not something I would like to do again.
