Wish I could play with one of these [shock] [url]http://www.airtaser.com/[/url] check out the videos and the user manual. "Never give one as a gift" [:D] [img]http://us.news2.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/nm/20011115/mdf86250.jpg[/img] An undated company file photo of an Air Taser stun gun, which has a range of 15 feet and delivers a paralyzing electric shock to its targets. United Airlines said November 15, 2001 it will become the first major U.S. airline to put Taser weapons, or stun guns, in every cockpit in its fleet following the September 11 attacks so pilots can try to fight off hijackers.

United said on Thursday it will become the first major U.S. airline to put the stun guns in every cockpit of its 500 planes, to help pilots fend off hijackers without damaging their airplane. Tasers fire an electrical charge that instantly incapacitates an attacker for about 15 minutes. They are not lethal and would not blow a hole in an airplane's fuselage like a gun might, but they can cause burns. REUTERS/Sue Ogrocki

[img]http://www.airtaser.com/Tech/M_Manual/Features.jpg[/img] GENERAL WARNINGS: NEVER POINT THE ADVANCED TASER® AT ANOTHER PERSON UNLESS INTENDING TO USE. NEVER AIM THE ADVANCED TASER AT THE EYES OR FACE. KEEP THE ADVANCED TASER OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN. NEVER TILT THE ADVANCED TASER WHEN FIRING (unless you are firing at a target laying on his side). IF GOING ON AN AIRPLANE, YOU MUST PUT THE ADVANCED TASER IN YOUR CHECKED LUGGAGE, IT CANNOT BE CARRIED ON BOARD. DO NOT FIRE THE ADVANCED TASER NEAR FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS AND FUMES. THE ADVANCED TASER CAN IGNITE GASOLINE OR OTHER FLAMMABLES. SOME SELF-DEFENSE SPRAYS ARE FLAMMABLE AND WOULD BE EXTREMELY DANGEROUS TO USE IN CONJUNCTION WITH ADVANCED TASER. Be sure, however, not to fire at an attacker who is over 21 feet away (measure 21 feet to see how far this is -- it will probably be farther than you think). If you do fire at someone more than 21 feet away, the probes will not have sufficient TASER® wire to reach the target LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS: REFER TO YOUR DEPARTMENT'S USE OF FORCE POLICY. ----I hope the users have a backup in case they miss The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) has classified the ADVANCED TASER as a non-firearm because it uses compressed air, rather than an explosive to launch the projectiles. Because the ADVANCED TASER is not a firearm: It can be carried for off duty use without a permit. (check state laws) It can be purchased through mail order from leading law enforcement catalogs and direct shipment.
