What are Stun Guns?

A lot of people use the phrase “Taser Gun” when they’re really meaning “Stun Gun”.  So, what’s the difference?

Stun Guns are handheld, electrical devices designed to deliver a big shock to whomever its being used on.  They require that the holderstun guns actually touches the body/skin of the target with the stun guns electrodes while depressing the button which activates the unit.  A TASER Gun, on the other hand, is also a handheld electrical device designed to deliver a shock to whomever it is being used on.  However, a Taser gun is a brand of these weapons AND, to date, all Taser brand guns actually shoot the electrodes outward towards the attacker.  The use of a TASER gun does NOT require the user to physically touch the target, since the electrodes can shoot out up to 15 feet.

There are several types of stun guns, most being smaller, fit into the hand size units.  Most are between 4-7 inches long and fit easily into most peoples’ hands.  There are also stun batons, which are typically 15-18 inches long and allow the user to have a longer reach.  Stun Batons are well known to be a great defense against attacking dogs, as the user can more easily insert the baton into a couple of fighting dogs than the smaller stun gun.  And, there’s even a stun cane available now, too.  Which provides even greater reach, yet still not as much as a TASER Gun, while providing walking support for a person up to 250 lbs in weight.  And, finally, there are also Flashlight Stun Guns which are real, functioning flashlights that also have a stun gun’s ability to of shocking someone built into the unit.
