What is a stun gun?

A Stun Gun is a battery powered hand held non-lethal self-defense weapon used to immobilize an attacker without causing serious injury, typically by administering an electric shock when pressed against an attacker's body. Typical voltages are above 20 million volts at 4.3 milliamps. Stun guns are not Tasers, although the terms are commonly used interchangably. Tasers launch metal darts connected to thin wires up to 20 feet away and embed into an attacker's body. Stun Guns do not shoot darts but have metal probes that are pressed onto an assailents body and when you squeeze the trigger it sends current through his body causing pain and loss of muscel control.

What non-lethal self defense weapon can I use?

If you find you have to walk alone or sit on a bus stop alone you should be prepared and carry an easy to deploy form of non-lethal self-defense. Stun guns are easy to carry, and easy to use. Stun guns work by rendering an attacker’s muscles uncontrollable. The after effect can take up to 10 minutes before he can recover. He will be at your mercy and unable to continue his aggression. This gives you time to get away and call the police. Many times the attacker will still be disabled when the cops arrive.

What kinds of stun guns are there?

Many models of stun guns are available. Some models of stun guns have a wrist strap with a disarming pin attached, all include a very bright flashlight like this Mini Badass Flashlight Stun Gun combo model. Other models like the Runt Stun Gun and Trigger Stun Gun models are smaller than the Flashlight Stun Gun Combo but have a very bright LED light and have a potent zap with up to 20 Million volts of stunning power.

How do I use a stun gun?

You put the strap around your wrist and plug in the safety pin and if you drop the stun gun or if it is pulled away from you the pin will be pulled from it making it useless to be used against you. Before you leave your office, either alone or with a friend, put the stun gun in your hand with the wrist strap around your wrist before you head out across the parking lot. If you need it, then you don’t have to fumble for it in your pocket or purse. If you have a stun gun / flashlight combination  or the stun gun cell phone, you will have what appears to be just a flashlight and have the extra protection of the stun gun if needed. 

If you do have to use the stun gun force it into the attacker's most vulneral area of the body. The most effective area to contact is the ribs, hip, torso or shoulder because this area effects his ability to reach or grab or even to walk toward you. Your best defense is to run away and be out of reach before he can get to you.

Will I get stunned if the attacker touches me?

If the attacker does touch you and you press the stun gun into one of these points of contact and even though he is touching you the electric shock will not affect you. The charge travels between the contact points on the stun gun, through clothing and into his body only. Even though the voltage is high, the current is low and will not cause any permanent harm for the 3 to 5 seconds you would activate it.

Does the stun gun work against animals?

In some situations, you could warn a potential attacker, human or animal, at a distance by holding up the stun gun and activating it and yelling very loudly "get away from me". Very effective in daylight and even more In the dark. Our Stun Master 20 Million Volt Bad Ass Metal Stun Baton and Flashlight is effective for animal repellent. The crackling noise and the blue spark from it is very intimidating and many times will cause the person or animal to run away.

How much does the stun gun weigh?

All of our stun guns weigh less than one half pound up to about 1.5 pounds.

Are stun guns easy to carry and use?

All of our stun guns include a holster or clip to carry on your belt for easy quick access to draw it push the activation switch to use as a flashlight or as a weapon. 

Does the Stun Guns have some type of security so it does not accidently discharge?

There's a three position switch(off, LED light, and stun) and the switch needs to be put to the armed setting before you can even activate the unit. It would be very difficult for it to accidentally go off.
