The X2 Taser - A Smart Buy!
From Matthew Beloof of Hanford, California on 10/24/2013.
First of all I'd like to thank Taser for an amazing product. I've been a proponent of ECD/NMI technology for a long time, and the X2 is thus-far the pinnacle of my experience. There are many situations where a firearm is inappropriate or unsafe to use when detaining or arresting an individual. We're left with a few options.OC Spray - Can be amazingly effective depending on the brand, however, it limits your ability to handle the situation afterward. Nobody wants to wrestle around with a bad guy covered in OC just to apply the cuffs. Also, you can contaminate yourself or others, and it can't be used safely indoors. Big limitations.Baton - Whether you've got a PR-24, an AutoLock, or an ASP, you know how devastating a collapsible baton can be. However, there are issues. "Excessive force" is a common accusation when batons are used. Injuries can be very serious, and last a lifetime. Also, the baton often doesn't deliver the immediate compliance you need; suspects may remain combative & defiant. While some people are intimidated by a baton, others aren't.Taser - An NMI Device (Taser) is very reliable, especially when you understand how it works. LE Tasers can be effective through thick clothing, and Officers can always aim for the thigh to avoid big puffy jackets in the winter. The X2 offers 2 shots, and a back-up ECD "STUN" feature in case you somehow screw up both shots (you won't....there are dual-lasers marking your target.)It immediately drops people who are drunk or on drugs, and yes, I've experienced the "the ride" myself. Pain Compliance isn't even an issue with NMI, as your entire body goes limp as soon as the darts/hooks make contact. It's about taking control quickly, while trying to minimize vicarious liability, and avoiding physical escalation. The Taser leaves tiny marks, there is no permanent injury. It is reliable, assuming the shooter understands his/her device. When someone gets combative, but doesn't have a firearm, I feel very comfortable drawing the X2 Taser and maintaining control of the situation. You can activate warning arcs, which stops most people in their tracks....they've SEEN Tasers on TV.....they know what's coming.However, even if they're too intoxicated to behave rationally, you can drop them easily. Products made by Taser have saved my life, both on the job & off. I carry a C2 Taser when I'm in civilian clothing, and an X2 when I'm in uniform. Both do exactly what they're meant to do.This is the next generation of NMI technology folks, and I'm afraid it has to be seen to be believed. (I've seen it, used it, & felt it myself...I'm a believer!)If you're reading this I want you to be safe, and avoid getting sued. I want you to avoid breaking bones with impact weapons or bullets when possible. The X2 Taser gives you a tremendous edge in situations where other options could prove problematic. A good NMI device can drop the biggest knucklehead in town, guaranteed.I recommend the X2 to everyone eligible to purchase it (mostly Military & LE.) It's one of the most reliable & useful devices in my bag of tricks, and that's no joke.I seriously doubt anyone who has purchased an X2 has had any "buyer's remorse." For me it was a simple decision, and I'd buy it all over again if I had to. It's worth it...even if your department won't cover it. I recommend you pick up an X2 Taser, and avoid a TON of drama down the road. This is the perfect Taser device.
