How fast can you get back into combat after being hit by TASER?

Pretty quickly it turns out. James Yeager TASERed three of his students to find out. They had to complete a simple course of fire as fast as possible after being zapped. The first two guys did very well. The last guy was definitely a little shaken.

Video here.

    There *IS* one thing the civilian TASERS have that law enforcement versions do not.

    I have heard that the C2 model comes with an MP3 player in the handle!

    I was tased as part of Police Explorer's and everything i learned from that experience is that the taser itself was not designed to keep you down after it has been used, it was designed to stop you in your tracks and give the user time to either get away or subdue the individual. In my opinion, this makes it a much for effective weapon in an "up to the minute" media driven world.

      @Sam Suggs You can beat somebody to death with a police baton too, but that's not what they were made for, it's improper use.
