Taser just sold 3000 units to undisclosed country. My guess: Australia

Taser recently announced a deal to sell 3000 M26 Tasers, an older model, to an undisclosed country. After a 30 second google search I guess it is Australia.

From CourierMail (dated January 29 2008):

POLICE will not say how many Tasers will be issued across the state after Police Minister Judy Spence brokered a deal with the controversial police union to provide one to every front-line officer.

I say three thousand. I don’t know they bother hiding these details in the information age.

According to the Motley Fool Taser increased is value on the stockmarket by $43 million on this deal which is worth only 1.2 million. The market sure likes Taser.

    well unlike the UK… all of our cops carry guns …..and whilst they dont seem to be as trigger happy as in the States….i´d prefer to be Tasered than Glocked anyday !!!!!!

    Are Tasers legal for civilians in Aus?

    I think it was New Zealand as our police over here are just now receiving tasers.

    yep they are in austarlia, its for our sate and federal police, they want more punch than oc spray but less lethal than side arms, a happy medium
