    Oh, you can't let things like "what some attorney might say" drive your thinking. Attorneys can and will attempt to use anything that differentiates one weapon of any kind from another weapon of any other kind or the same kind, but they're usually not successful.

    For instance, the police model has a longer range than the civilian models, so if you used that they could say "How come you had to taze the guy when he was so far away? Huh? Huh? How could he have been a threat to you from that distance? Huh? Huh?"

    So, you use OC...."How come you used x% spray instead of y% spray? Huh? Huh?"

    So, you use a baton...."How come you used a 26" baton instead of 21"? Huh? Huh?

    So, you use a peashooter..."How come you used dried peas? Didn't you know you could put my client's eye out? Why dintcha use cooked peas? Huh? Huh?

    So, paralyzed by legalphobia, you just decide to write people up...."How come you used a #2 pencil instead of a #1 pencil? Huh? Huh?"

    Engaging in legalphobia "what ifs" is the ultimate mug's mind game. Come to terms once and for all with the fact that IF a liability case should come to trial - which the vast majority do not - lawyers will try to attack literally anything you did, any gear you used, any policy you followed, and every decision you made, no matter what. They will also, by the way, attack all the things you DIDN'T do...the gear you DIDN'T use, etc.

    If necessary, run decisions about gear, policies, procedures or <whatever you're worried about> past your corporate council, carry appropriate liability insurance...and then just get on with doing your job the best you know how.
    Amen to the legalphobia, everyone talks a good lawsuit. In reality, suing someone is expensive and seldom successful.

      Actually, to aleviate this problem, I would buy the X26e, the law enforcement version. They are available to any licensed security firm.

      Also, as far as "dropping it == bad," the weapon will be replaced by Taser for free if you submit a police report. And since it just dumped AFIDs everywhere, you would be calling the police anyway.
      LOL, well if you don't call them they will be certainly calling you. Or at least stopping by for a little chit chat. Better get the coffee going...

        I didn't know that. I always thought security was stuck with the X26c or M18 civilian models.

            It used to be, we were. Originally, before the X26 came out, you could get a "waiver" from Taser International. Then, a year later, only "sworn law enforcement agencies" could purchase the Taser X26e. Then, the next year, a 'licensed security firm that undergoes a background check' can purchase the X26e and any cartridge not prohibited by law.
