So, what are the rules about taser vs gun, because SP wise it's punishable. But my point is, If I already had my taser aimed at someone and they took out their gun, am I allowed to tase them knowing that I had my aim on them WAY before they took out their gun, thanks in advance.

It's rather unrealistic and classed as Non-RP, maybe even powergaming.

If they reach for their gun, it'd be realistic to taze them, but once they have the gun in their hand it'd be unrealistic and also against SP protocol as their finger would spasm and probably hold the trigger down uncontrollably, firing in random directions.

if you already have a taser in your hand, aiming at the suspect, and he then takes out his gun, id say you gotta do what you do to survive, and tazing him(considering youre already aiming at him) would be correct in my opinion

If I was in the position where I had a taser aimed at somebody and they moved their hands somewhere, I'd tase them there and then. The more time you give them to get a potential weapon out, the more likely you are to get shot or watch someone being shot. You're in a server that promotes heavy roleplaying which requires you to use your initiative most of the time. You're not power gaming if you don't want your life to be endangered. If someone does a /me saying they're reaching for their gun, it's up to you to determine if your character would react with the tase or immediately move to cover and get a more appropriate weapon/call for back up.

No, you can not, It would be considered rush-tase.

Realistically you can taze them aslong as they don't have it pointed up to the point where it could cause harm to someone


EX;
Reaching for it
Have it gripped and aiming towards the ground

But don't you think it's quite unrealistic for him to instantly bring his gun to his hand and just aim forwards? Realistically it would take him more than 3 seconds to take out his gun, knowing I already have my taser on him, I'd not hesitate to tase him the point he reaches for holster, but when they just smash the gun withdrawal RP button and start shooting instantly, that's unrealistic.

I say It's unrealistic to even pull a gun out while having a taser aimed at you, at least scriptly; If he roleplays it and gives you the time to react, then I think that's fine.

But It'd be rather gun fear from his side to simply just pull a gun out while having a taser aimed at him, considering that you would taze him if he does any sudden movements.
