Stun Guns

What is a stun gun?

A stun gun is a direct contact weapon whose electrodes should make contact with the assailant to deliver an electrical charge. This electrical charge travels through the assailant's clothes and into the body where it temporarily disrupts muscle functions.

What makes a stun gun effective?

Stun guns usually have high voltage and low amps. It is the output amps that makes the stun gun a great self-protection device. Volts represent the number of electrons pushed out of a power source such as an outlet while Amps represent the force with which the electrons are pushed out of the outlet.

How important is voltage?

The high voltage is significant as it allows the electrical charge to penetrate the assailant's clothes and reach the body. Voltage can be as high as 20,000,000 volts like in the Runt stun gun brand. Stun guns cause severe discomfort to the sensory nervous system nerves which are close to the skin's surface.

Why is a stun gun regarded as one of the most effective non-lethal self-defense weapons?

The energy from the device is discharged into the muscles at a high pulse frequency energy. These scrambles tiny neurological impulses which are responsible for control of muscle movement. This will lead to disorientation and loss of balance.

The attacker will be disabled for a few minutes up to 30 minutes with no permanent or serious injury. The length of time an attacker is incapacitated depends on the size of the attacker and the power of the stun gun.

Although it is an "up close and personal" type of self-defense weapon, a stun gun can be triggered before the attacker approaches. The electrical current passing between the electrodes creates a loud crackling noise which will be intimidating enough to deter an assailant.

Do you have a variety of models?

Stun guns are available in different sizes and can be disguised as flashlight stun guns, cell phone stun guns, even lipstick stun guns and other configurations to give you the advantage of surprise.

Can the rechargeable battery be replaced with a regular Alkaline battery?

You should always use the rechargable system that comes with the stun gun.

Can I buy a stun gun even though I live in Canada?

Sorry, we cannot ship stun guns across the US border. 

Do you have to touch skin in order to be effective?

No as long as you touch clothing close to skin.

Do you ship to NYC?

No

Can a 13 year old carry a stun gun in a state where stun guns are legal?

Depends on where you live. Check your state statutes.
