Final Days of the Real Runt Stun Gun

That’s right!  We’re in the final days of the Real Runt Stun Gun.  Here’s what I mean:

The manufacturer is retiring the original version and is replacing it with a newer, higher voltage Runt stun gunsmodel, that, unfortunately, is not built as well as the original nor is it as strong, technically speaking.

The first issue we have with the newer Runt Stun Gun is the on/off switch is quite cheaply constructed, and you can tell this in how it feels.  If the first thing you touch on the outside is a cheap replacement, what are the new insides like?  Most likely, cheap components, too.

Secondly, the new Runt is a 10,000,000 volt stun gun.  Sounds impressive, right?  Unfortunately, its not.  The laws of electricity work like this:  Total Power = Voltage x Amperage.  In layman’s terms, this means, increase the voltage and you MUST reduce the amperage.  And, amperage is what actually does the stopping of a bad guy.  Voltage is the “push” behind the shock and Amperage is the actual shock.  So, lowering the amperage means the stopping power of the shock has been lowered.

When you’re buying something, be sure to understand what you’re really buying.  A super high voltage stun gun is NOT something you want.  It will NOT stop an attacker as well as a lower voltage model will.

HOWEVER, as always SmartStun is here to save the day:  We have bought a huge supply of the last of the original models of the Runt 4.5 Million Volt Rechargeable Stun Gun and are ready to fill orders.  This supply won’t last forever, though, so don’t delay on placing an order.  When they’re gone, they’re gone…..

For One Man, Its all About the Stun Gun

E. Harris got into selling self defense weapons several years back as a means to fill some spare time and earn some extra money.  But, since then, his love for helping people find the best and most suitable self defense weapons has really come to the forefront.  Harris launched SmartStun.com and instantly became immersed into an industry that would both fill him with satisfaction and leave him scratching his head.  While the website sells more than just stun guns, including TASER brand guns, pepper spray and pepper guns, his main focus has always been on bringing on the best stun guns to market.

 “There are so many makes and models of stun guns available.  China is pumping them out by the boatload.  And, unfortunately, not many are worth buying”, says Harris. “However, there are also a few very well built and powerful stun guns available.”  In addition to speaking with customers on the phone and through online communication, Harris spends his time researching new models coming out.  He says lately, there has been a substantial increase in stun gun models coming over that simply don’t generate enough power to be effective.  He strives to keep those types of stun guns off his website and out of his store.

For instance, there is one brand, who Harris doesn’t want to denigrate publicly, who has been a recognized leader in the industry for years.  However, over the past 6 months, this company has begun bringing in models that simply don’t work.  Harris says, “As that company replaces models with inferior products, we stop offering that company’s new products.”  On the other side of the coin, brands like Barracuda Stun Guns and Omega Stun Guns are some of the highest quality and most effective stun guns available.

As more models of stun guns get replaced with cheaper quality weapons, Harris has turned his attention on developing his own brand of stun guns that will definitely be very well built and very effective, technically speaking.  “I remain committed to bringing the best stun gun to market for my customers, even if that means I have to design and build it myself,” says Harris.

Christmas is Coming: Stun Gun or TASER Gun

Okay, before Ruger introduced their new line of stun guns, I think it’d be easy to say that anyone who wants a weapon would want a TASER Gun for Christmas.  But, a weapon that has the Ruger name on it would surely also get a few votes for “Hey, I’d like that for Christmas”!

You could visit www.taser.com but you’ll only find TASER brand items.  Or, you could visit a site like www.tbotech.com, but you won’t find all the types of real weaponry that you’ll find at www.smartstun.com .

By going to SmartStun, you’ll find all the weapons you want, you can compare them easily, get Free Shipping and even add a little something for yourself to the order.

Christmas is coming soon.  With shipping time and everything else, you’ll want to go ahead and begin your shopping.

Ruger is now in the Stun Gun Business

So, here’s what we now know about the Ruger Stun Guns.  All that Ruger Flashlight Stun GunRuger did was license the use of their name to PS Products, allowing PS Products to put the Ruger name on the exact same stun guns that are also ZAP Stun Guns.

So, the really great flashlight stun gun that ZAP has had for years, is also now available under the Ruger name…..it just costs more.  Now, to be fair, while the Ruger unit is the exact same unit that has been around, PSP will be putting out a new ZAP Flashlight Stun Gun very soon.  And, it will not be branded as Ruger.  Kinda confusing I know.

The ZAPSticks, both 650 and 800 models, will now also be available as Ruger, again, just more expensive.  So, I have to say, I don’t really care fo this type of approach.  I mean, if you want to get into a market, bring something new to the market or buy one of the previous players.  But, don’t just add your name to something and jack up the price.

Sorry, but I think these will fade out over time.  For now, we have added the Ruger Flashlight to our line up at SmartStun, because, again, it will soon be different than the ZAP flashlight.  But, we’ve not added the new Ruger Sticks nor the Ruger Stun Guns.  We just don’t think its right.  Let us know your thoughts.

TASER Gun Sales Skyrocket

Even in the harsh retail environment we’re experiencing, TASER Gun sales continue to increase at such a rapid rate, its hard for the manufacturer and distributors to keep up with the demand.

taser gun logoTypically, the late summer season is fairly quiet in terms of self defense weapons sales.  Purchases usually increase quite dramatically as the Christmas season draws near as they make great Christmas Gifts.  But, this year, apparently due to the extreme crime levels throughout the country, purchases of all self defense weapons, but namely TASER Guns and Pepper Guns are at record levels.

We own SmartStun.com and we’re well aware of the volume.  Its not just one model, either that is selling.  The TASER C2 Gold Kits, M26C and the newest X2 are selling like never before.  Its certainly making for a busy “slow” season, but we just hope the manufacturer is able to keep up all through the end of the year.

Which Stun Gun is the Best?

Let’s face it, there are way too many choices out there for stun guns.  And, unfortunately, so many sites are carrying and selling some models just for the sake of making a buck and don’t really care about your safety, but instead care about their financial performance.

Just search Ebay for stun guns and you’ll see so many offers come up.  And, while there are a few decent models on there, most, quite honestly, are pure crap.  And, if you carry one of these stun guns feeling that you’re gonna be safe if you come face to face with someone, you’re gonna end up getting hurt instead.  You will have in your hand nothing more than a cute little spark maker that does no more than make your attacker laugh at you for being so gullible.

So, if this is true, which it is, which one should you get?   Well, quite honestly, there are several brands and models that are effective.  So, as long as you are carrying one of these, you’ll have some real protection.  And, which one is the Best Stun Gun?  Well, that comes down to determining which stun gun you’ll actually carry when you are face to face with someone.  What do I mean?  Simple….

So, often, people buy a stun gun or pepper spray or some self defense weapon.  And, for a while, they’re diligent about carrying it.  But, then, after a while, when nothing has happened, they get lax or lazy and slowly stop carrying it.  Maybe the batteries have run out and they’ve not been replaced.  Whatever the case, they simply stop carrying it.  So, what difference does it make which one is any good if the owner isn’t going to carry it.  So, from the list below, choose the model that you believe you will actually carry.  The list below is comprised of makes and models that are proven to be highly effective and many industry experts consider to be the best stun guns:

Barracuda BC37 Stun Gun, Omega Star Warrior Stun Baton, Omega Super Stunner Stun Gun, Runt Stun Gun (Runt 4.5 Million volt models only….the newer ultra high voltage models of 10 million volts are nothing more than cheaply made toys), ZAP Double Trouble Stun Gun, and any TASER Brand TASER Gun.

About the JPX Jet Protector

There’s a little confusion online about the JPX Jet Protector from Piexon.  Most people are familiar with the fact that it is an incredible pepper gun.  But, the confusion really comes from a branding issue.  Unfortunately for the brand, I don’t see things getting any clearer anytime soon.

The first issue came about when KIMBER America used to be the US Distributor for the pepper gun.  And, so, many websites, as well as many customers, still refer to the unit as being the Kimber Jet Protector.  Or, some other similar name.  But, some time ago, Kimber either lost or gave up their rights to the distributorship.

Now, Piexon, the one and only company who makes the JPX Jet Protector and whom is based in Switzerland, has enlisted a company out of Arizona to be the US Distributor for the Jet Protector.  However, even they are selling the unit under different names.  The civilian customer will see the unit as the JPX Jet Protector.  But, the law enforcement customer “may” see the unit as the Cobra.  And, as such, websites which are geared for one market or the either may label the pepper gun either way, or possibly even both.

So, just know that there is only one gun being made that even comes close to the look and ability of the JPX Jet Protector from Piexon aka Cobra, and past references of Kimber.  Get yours from SmartStun.com and know that you’re getting the best self defense weapon available today.

Where Should You Carry Your Weapon?

Great question, with no “one size fits all” answer.  First, you must determine what situation you’re wanting to protect yourself from.  Are you walking from car to store and generally have free access to arm movement?  Or, are you exercising and possibly have no storage means?

These are both very different situations and, quite honestly, you can sit and list a multitude of situations that you could possibly find yourself needing protection.  So, lets say you are walking from car to store.  Generally, access to a pocket would seem probable and thus, having your stun gun, taser gun or pepper gun in your pocket generally makes sense.  That is, as long as you come upon your attacker and have a little bit of response time.  But, if they jump from behind you and wrap their arms around you demanding you do something, your arms won’t be free to reach into a pocket.  So, in this case, a belt mounted holster would probably be more sensible.

As stated, there are a multitude of situations you could find yourself in and there is no “one place” for everyone to carry their weapon.  So, you have to give thought to the situation you most likely expect and feel the most vulnerable.  Then, imagine where you would have access to and that’s going to be the best place to carry your self defense weapon.
