The pros of this pistol are quite extraordinary: it is quick to reload, has a large magazine, and is very concealable, meaning easy to hide. Since it is easy to reload, you can quickly reuse it without a bad recovery time. Possessing a large magazine means that it can store more bullets than a standard pistol. It's a good thing that it is concealable because if a cop is undercover, they can hide it easily in a coat, on their belt, and it's not extremely heavy. Because of the reasons explained above, the pistol is a revolutionary weapon.
The cons for this weapon is that it is prone to jamming, the moving parts are difficult to maintain. On the other hand, the pistol has an amazing feature known as the safety lock. The good thing about this is that when the lock is on, the gun is incapable of firing. Now, back to the cons, if the user unconsciously leaves the safety lock on, the gun has the ability to accidentally fire. Having a weapon that is prone to jamming is inadequate because if you self defense is needed while your gun jams, you will be dramatically perilous than when you would have a working gun. Anything with a lot of moving parts could be a bad thing because it's more to clean, and harder to maintain, and if it jams, there's so many things to check. Safety locks are on guns and most weapons to begin with, because some people are not responsible and if the pistol gets kicked or falls off of something it could go off and possibly hurt or kill someone. The reasons stated above conclude the cons of owning a pistol.
The cons to using a taser are If used on someone who has drugs on their system it can kill or hospitalize them, it can raise the heart rate and cause cardiac arrest on some people due to ventricular fibrillation, could be used irresponsibly, the use of tasers amounts to cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment.
