I love the Taser. I would not trade it for nothing in a Jail setting. I stopped useing my pepper spray the day I was certified with the Taser. It has saved alot of Officers, along with a few Inmates lives.

I have mixed feelings about the taser. The first real deployment on my shift was a misfire.  One probe barely broke the  skin and the other just bounced off like  the cartridge was underpowered. It was fired from about eight feet away at a violent detainee who grabbed the wires off of himself and threw them back at us.  It cost him a good contact burn, but we had to release the cartridge and resort to pepper spray.
