  • Advice on getting tased?

    Guys,

    I am getting tased today for the first time. Luckily, I only have to take a 2 second stun with alligator clips. Does anyone have any good advice on this? I've heard to use the bathroom before. I've also heard sometimes you get burned good with the clips? Maybe I should wear thicker clothes?
    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thicker clothes should actually only make things worse. Any burns (and I've only personally seen very small spots on the skin) come from the arc through the space between the clips and skin. I kinda doubt the instructor is gonna let you wear a flak jacket that prevents contact...

    There's no real "trick" for Taser like there is for OC decon...it just hurts and there's no way around it. Going to the bathroom beforehand probably isn't a bad idea.

      The closer the clips are together, the less affected you will be.

          Use the bathroom... then all thats left is to suck it up and ride the lightning. When the arc stops.... so does the pain.

                Have you taken a ride on the Taser? I'm not ashamed to admit that I screamed like a little girl for five seconds. I can say without a doubt that the Taser erases any such thoughts from your mind with 50,000 volts of fun.

                  Yes, I have been tased, voluntarily. And no, it wasn't a ride in the ball park.

                    Been tased twice voluntarily...once for one second, the other time for the full five.....

                    Not a heck of a lot to do to prepare except to sit back and 'enjoy' it...

                        I feel for you. I took the full five seconds voluntarily and it sucked, a lot. Its the longest five, err well two for you, seconds of your life. Far and away the worst pain I have every felt. It remains to be seen if I am going to have to do it again when we get stingers later this year or next. Only "positive" thing is if I do the stinger is only a three second ride.

                        Why are they only doing two seconds?

                          2 seconds with clips.... Man up. You won't have time to realize how bad it is before it's over.

                            Relax your muscles as best you can. For us we placed a probe on the rt hip and rt boot. I kept my right leg off the ground and tried not to tighten my leg muscles during the ride.

                            To be honest, I take a taser out in the field because there's really no way around the effects. 5 secs felt like 10 and I couldn't think of anything but the debilitating pain. Just think of something to say after the rides over like, "That wasn't so bad.." as you proceed to fall over.
