Have to give TASER credit for its marketing strategy. The MP3 player for a jogger makes sense, it would encourage an owner to take the TASER along, but wearing headphones is not good for situational awareness. However, I'm tempted to get one.

Perhaps a NAA minirevolver holster with mp3 player would be nicer.

Hey! What a great idea!

An mp3 player built into pistol grips! Crimson Trace can fit the gadgetry for a laser sight into a hand gun grip. Why not an mp3 player, too.

Now THAT would be the way to OC.

Wait a minute. Wait. You just know I'm going to say it. Here it comes:

I can't wait to load my .38 Special.

:D

So you taser a guy in your house that doesn't have a firearm.... what happens next after 30 seconds and you're halfway through the 911 call??

In the 30 seconds he was incapacitated you should been able to find something to beat him into unconciousness... or a knife and duct tape?

I guess. I'm just saying with the taser I've got one chance and 30 seconds vs 14 chances.

I don't think tazers are worth the money you spent on them. Police use tasers because they have a gun for backup. i don't want to waste the money.

To their credit, they will replace your unit that you leave behind if you provide a police report of the incident.

I'm not worried about having one replaced, I'm worried about the BG getting up.

One try for temporary incapacitation, or 16. Even more if you carry spare mags.
