    Did a few odds and ends to the truck today. Added some L track, finished up the hi lift mounts, and mounted the HD tech deck.

    I was impartial to my other mounts, but everyone seemed to love them. So I offered up my mounts in exchange for the HD tech deck, straight trade (no cost to me). Got taken up on that offer within minutes.

    When I was a police officer our shift agreed that pepper spray was only to be used on dogs and ONLY if there were no other cops around. I would have rather been tased every day for a year then get pepper sprayed again.

    Yeah I think you mentioned that to me once. And how one guy used it and everyone hated him for awhile. Man my eyes are watering just thinking about it.

    Yeah that’s how the agreement started. He pepper sprayed half the shift in a big fight. No one would talk to him for a long time.

    FYI, the gel isn't quite as effective because it requires precision to get it in the target areas. The stream spray is much easier to give someone a decent exposure because it splatters...but you also run the risk of a secondary exposure when you deploy it.

    Also wanna make sure it’s non flammable...don’t want to spray someone’s face and have it catch on fire.

    I don't even carry it anymore for this very reason. If I get into a situation where I could justify pepper spraying someone, it is highly likely things have escalated enough they are just going to take the 5 second ride instead.

    I was telling my coworker yesterday I would be tased 5 times in rapid succession before I'd take a second voluntary exposure to OC. (Required to be certified as an OC instructor). Sure the taser absolutely sucks, but when the 5 seconds are over, you are done. No 8 hr+ recovery time and feeling like you have sand in your eyes for days...or the secondary exposure when you get in the shower afterward....just pull the probes and your done.

    Pro tip....wear a condom in the shower after exposure.

    That’s my back up. I also have bear spray and I swear that thing produces a tornado of a shit storm. It’s like a 1’ wide blast that’ll reach pretty far.

    Yep. Can't tase someone after you oc spray them either. They catch on fire.

    I had a coworker tase someone who was resisting arrest and tried to barricade in a bedroom. They deployed the taser just as the perp was trying to slam the bedroom door shut. One of the probes hit a butane lighter in the suspect's front pocket. Set off a 3 ft fire ball and charred the perps hair and clothing. They had to take them to the ER to be check out. Nurse doing their initial vitals leans over the gurney and pulls a big clump of melted hair off the perp, simultaneously while asking, "were you on fire?" The perp replies, "I guess so..."
