Anyone OTer have / used a taser?



Considering getting one for the house or truck.

Can it be carried concealed?

You can conceal it in your vagina.
A glock would be a little more convincing #tho.

If you are looking to carry something nonlethal then just get a good pepper spray. Had an incident a few weeks ago at work where my detail cop had to use both a taser and pepper spray. The guy had on a hoodie causing the taser not to work completely and he had to break out the spray. Also, the spray will be easier to carry around without having to worry about concealment laws.

You hit them with the spray first, then use the tazer to ignite the spray and turn them into a giant fireball.

I don't want or need another gun. Rather presumptous of Cosmo to imply I don't already have multiple firearms.

I have used one/had it used on me (in training) and it sucks BUT it is a compliance tool and not a true self defense measure. What are you trying to accomplish? Because, as a private citizen, you better be "in fear of great bodily harm or death or protecting another from the same" before you use ANY force. The Taser isn't something you get to use on a neighborhood teenager because he is egging your house and if some dude is breaking into your home at night with a weapon you need to SHOOT him and not taser him. I have personally witnessed the Taser fail multiple times for a variety of reasons (despite what the manufacturer would have you believe, it isn't a phaser after all) and law enforcement always backs up the Taser with lethal force. I just can't imagine a legitimate situation where a private citizen would use one instead of a gun. But, hey, do what you want.

You don't own any guns. No gun owner would say such nonsense.

As far as I know tasers can be carried anywhere. Probably a good alternative to a gun where guns cannot be carried.

I would double-check that "can be carried anywhere" statement for two reasons. 1. I know in at least some jurisdictions Taser's fall under the same rules as firearms regarding concealed carry. 2. If you get caught with it, the police (likely not knowing any better) will probably hook you up anyway.

One other thing I think many people don't realize. Unlike what you see on TV, when the 5 second ride is over (the amount of time the Taser automatically discharges into the person being shot) they don't lay around unconscious or what not. When the ride is over, you come back 100% right away. Translated as, if you shock someone you better be ready because they are coming for you after. Law Enforcement is taught to jump on them immediately and get them under control. As I said before, despite the company's marketing campaigns, I just don't see the Taser as a good civilian alternative to a firearm.

since the rules to carry one are the same as a gun, its much better just to carry a gun.

Though if only they made tasers smaller. I saw someone tazed and he pissed his pants. But a gun can do the same thing.

Taser actually makes a civillian version called the C2. I think it is $300-400, but instead of the normal 5 second ride, it delivers a full 30 seconds.

You are supposed to tase them, drop the taser, and get a police report. Taser will then send you a new one.

Don't get a cheap regular stun gun. Those are just used for pain compliance. If you get a good connection with an actual Taser, there isnt anything you can do to fight through it.
