    #4. The storyline was stupid.

    But I do like Lethal Weapons 1 and 2. 3 was okay.

    My issue with Tasers is that as it gets colder out, people pile on layers. The more layers people get, the less effective they can be. Pepper sucks year round.
    Taser International has an app for that

    Batter UP!
    Not saying that is why I still love carrying my mag light at night, but it is very useful for a number of reasons.

    OC is effective, however as wutzcrack3n stated ITS MESSY. With a taser you don't have to worry about contaminating multiple people.

    In reality, this is why we have multiple options.....this thread is really kind of dumb.

    OC? Too many chances for lack of effectiveness (or sometimes self-application). Worst fight I was ever in was a scrote who was barely effected by OC.
    AND he was naked.
    The stuff of nightmares.....

    Definitely a taser, more accurate and less messy than o.c. even if i were hit by chance its 5 secs vs. 1 hour of misery, then a second dose of misery in the shower that night.

If it was issued where we had to carry it, I'd get some good use out of it.
    The riot baton is 36" or so......................the straight stick I was referring to is roughly 26" or so.

    The PR-24 is-----------------------unique. A well trained officer with practice can be a one man whirlwind. I was trained by the inventor-------he was a Reserve Deputy in my agency. I didn't like the tool because you had to practice so much with it to remain effective.

    I have never trained in the ASP...............my old agency didn't use them and I just don't want to bother with my new agency.

    I carry a taser with two cartridges, OC spray and a 21" ASP expandable baton. I've carried the taser for the last few years, but I've never had to tase anyone. I've taken the cartridge out and shown potential tasees a lightning show, though.

    I've sprayed many people, but it has been a long time. Our Capstun worked beautifully, but our newer water based crud isn't nearly as effective.

    I've never had to use my ASP to strike anyone, but I have threatened to use it where the bad guys have backed down before I had to start whackin'.

    If I had to choose only one, I'd choose the PR-24 I carried in my early years. But, if I had to choose from the above, it would be the ASP baton. It also helps me to push sallyport buttons when they are too far to reach. Oh, I have whacked dogs with it...just not people.
