It SUCKED!! We are getting them assigned to us to carry on patrol so we had to get trained today. This was part of the training! Sorry for some of the language! Looks best in 480p.

No, I volunteered to be hit with it. We don't have to take a hit...but I wanted to feel just how rough it was. It was unreal! My entire body just locked up solid and I couldn't move a muscle. It HURT LIKE HELL!

Taz me bro! Not really. I freak out on static electricity sometimes.

I can think of at least one friend that could have kept from doing time in the pen if they would have had those when I was a younger. Yes, he was trouble with the police. Not anymore though but if someone would have tasered him he would have went down before the real trouble began.

Me and some friends got hammered one night and decided to zap each other with a 1,000,000 volt stun gun. Nothing will sober you up faster than a million volts going through your ass biggrin.gif I've heard that while tasers have significantly less voltage, they are exceptionally more painful because they have a pulsating charge. You're pretty brave for trying that out, especially on such a large muscle group.

Oh man, I would not be looking forward to being a test person for something like that...!

How long did it take before you felt 'normal' (or relatively normal smile.gif ) again after that shot?

Almost instantly when they turn it off, you feel perfectly normal. No lingering after affects at all, no damage. It is quite a tool! It has a lot of voltage, but very little amperage...that is why they said it hurts, but it isn't dangerous.

You really have some guts Ben I wouldn't have volunteer for that kind of experience.

Thoses things looks very powerfull, I hope they won't become overused with time. At least you know how it feels so it may reduce your use of it.

That's why they demostrate on someone in person. There are strict guidelines that we have to follow to be able to utilize it.
