The use of technology in the lawman's profession is discussed. The supposed outlaw Ned Christie had built a reinforced log cabin which required the use of a cannon and then dynamite to capture him. A Texas ranger created an early version of the Claymore Mine using dynamite, shotgun, and a trigger wire to scare fence cutters. The use of the rifle provided an advantage over the pistol in terms of range of fire from 20 feet to 200 yards. Bat Masterson "sweetened" his gun with modifications to gain an advantage. Some used shotguns and especially the 10 gauge shotgun was like firing several pistols at once. Other areas of law enforcement technology were not so well developed. This includes handcuffs which were awkward, no secure methods of transporting prisoners, and lack of jails. The most dangerous part of law enforcement was transporting prisoners. Folsom prison used colored uniforms for high risk prisoners and Gattling guns to stop them due to a lack of a wall around the prison. Written by Anonymous
