Oftentimes, we get asked “Who makes the best stun gun?”. And, of course, this can only truly be answered by defining what makes a stun gun the best one. I mean, are we talking technical specs? Are we talking overall quality? Are we talking about how long it’ll last? All these things can define which is the best.
So, let’s just look at overall quality, today. And, in doing so, that’ brings two manufacturers to mind. The first is Over the Counter Intelligence, the maker of the Barracuda Stun Guns. The second is Omega, the maker of the Omega Stun Guns.
Over the Counter Intelligence set out early on the build not only the stun gun with the best technical specs, but also the line of weapons that will last for years. So, not only do their stun guns generate the highest amperage, which is what actually does the “stopping” when applied to a person, but they also have the best battery design. This helps them to last decades, not just years.
And, Omega is one of the first two manufacturers to ever develop stun guns and stun batons. They began back in the 1980’s. And, while their designs haven’t necessarily changed much since then, they haven’t needed to. You see, the Omega line of stun guns, while somewhat lower in voltage and amperage than most models today, remain effective due to the frequency of the amperage they generate. I won’t get into the technical “know how” of how it works, as it would take much more than a blog post to explain it. But, their stun guns sell just as well today as they did 3 decades ago. Again, if they have this kind of staying power in the marketplace, they have to be considered among the best.
