Thread: Friend worried that her pepper spray would be/ could be used against her..

  1. #11
    Agreed on the taser failures. I fought through my first exposure and volunteered for a second hit. Just having loose polyester pants prevented one prong from even touching my skin let alone digging in far enough for a good connection.

    We are seeing multiple failures on tasers in the field......and subsequently, officers not knowing to go hands on after a failed deployment. Loose clothing, jackets, etc......

    Not the cure all it was touted to be by far.

    Regards.

    Tasers may have a better success rate when used in corrections when there are already several others to assist.

    Not really our failure rate with the taser is about the same. 50% or so.

    One must have the correct mindset, the willingness to protect oneself and loved ones.
    If not absolutely willing or unsure, don't carry it.

    An attractive young woman looking for a carry gun in the LGS while I was there one day related how she'd previously attempted to defend herself with pepper spray. The assailant just put his hand over the spray stream and continued to demand her money/purse/whatever it was he took. Fortunately, as she described the incident, that was all.

    I'm sure he had to wash his hand soon afterward, but he managed to keep it from getting to his face just by getting to contact range and responding to it effectively.

    That could have gone so much worse. Great lesson for her though.

    I think it’s Craig who describes OC as “eye jab in a can”. Why was she still standing there after the spray? It’s not a magic bad-guy off-switch.
