Why Carry a Stun Gun?

First, Why Not?  I mean, if you’re not in a locale where stun guns are restricted, why wouldn’t you carry a stun gun, or at least some form of self defense weapon?  With the poor economic conditions getting worse all around the country, crime is spreading at a rapid rate.  I was sitting behind our retail store last week getting a little sunshine between customers when a guy approached me and I could tell he was up to no good.  Fortunately, I was near our door and I did some quick talking to get away from him and safely inside.  But, I had no weapon on me.  If he had pulled a knife or even just demanded that I give him my wallet, I might have had to just to keep things smooth.

So, why not carry a stun gun?  I mean, let’s say its dark, you’re coming out of the mall or the grocery store or Wal-Mart and someone comes up and demands your purse or wallet.  What are you going to do?  If you had a stun gun in a holster on your belt or perhaps, in your purse, simply setting off a quick test fire may be all that’s needed to set the mugger running off.  While he may not be caught by the police, at least your safe.  I can assure you that you have a much better chance of being safe with a good quality stun gun in your hand than you do if you have nothing.  And, let’s be real, its not quite comfortable to walk around everywhere with a handgun on your hip.  So, in many cases, a stun gun is a much more suitable alternative.

Best Stun Gun Manufacturer

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.

Flashlight Stun Gun from ZAP

The ZAP Brand of self defense products has been around for a while and is manufactured by PS Products.  This company is unique in the industry as they design and have their own products manufactured, rather than taking on some of the cheap chinese products and putting their name on them.  PS Products holds patents on the design of their weapons, as many of their stun guns and such are unique to them.

zap flashlight stun gun

For instance, the new ZAP Enforcer Professional Grade Flashlight Stun Gun is one that can only be gotten from ZAP.  There is not another unit like it out there that is sold under another brand.  This unit is 2 million volt, heavy duty flashlight with display on it that lets the user know how much charge is left on the battery.

The ZAPL, 1 million volt flashlight stun gun and the the ZAPLTE, 1 Million volt Extreme Flashlight Stun Gun are also 2 unique models that cannot be gotten under any other brands.

All 3 of these units are of the highest quality, and while they are all manufactured in China, they are only done so according to the specs of PS Products.  Whereas many stun guns are designed and made in China, then marketed to US companies who then put their name on them. So, if you see anything from ZAP or PS Products, you can rest assured you’re getting the best in self defense.

Coming Soon: Flashlight Stun Gun from TASER

You read that right!  Due out sometime this summer, 2013, TASER will be releasing their first Flashlight Stun Gun.  No specs have been released yet, and they’ve not even determined the price at which it will be sold.  But, its coming.

About the only information we know at this time is that it will be a direct contact stun gun.  It will not shoot electrodes out like all other TASER gun models do.  So, this is the first departure away from the true TASER technology.  Its going to be interesting to see if they go with a higher voltage and amperage stun gun than what they currently put out or if they’re going to keep the specs low and integrate in their neuro-muscular incapacitation (NMI) technology.

Stay tuned and know that you can get it just as soon as its available through SmartStun!

If you’re Wanting a JPX Jet Protector, Get Ready Now

JPX Jet ProtectorAs of this week, the JPX Jet Protector is having a limitation put on it due to supply troubles.  The Orange Jpx Jet Protector with Laser is being reserved for only Law Enforcement agencies in the United States.  It seems that Piexon is having a very difficult time keeping up with all the demand and they’re not able to supply all the jet protectors that are being ordered.

According to Piexon in Switzerland, European Citizens are fearing a complete collapse of their land’s economic system.  Cyprus was just the beginning, Greece, Italy, Spain and Portugal are very near the same thing happening.  Essentially a full scale collapse of the Euro is in the works.  When this begins happening, riots to a scale not seen in our lifetime will ensue.  Not only are law enforcement agencies in Europe preparing, but civilians are also getting the pepper guns, too, even though they’re not legal in Europe for civilians.  Go figure.  Keep the weapons away from the citizens.  Sounds like another country I know quite well.

Anyway, because the US Law Enforcement agencies are expecting similar riots here in the US after the Euro falls and the US Dollar becomes toast, which is was our government is planning for, the JPX Jet Protector is in limited supply.  And, the US Distributor has said  that they are reserving the orange model with laser for law enforcement agencies only.  The Black model with laser is still available to US Citizens and the model without laser is still available in both colors.

Further, since Piexon is focusing on producing live ammunition, they are having trouble supplying training cartridges.  As such, the training cartridges are currently on back order in the US.

So, if you’re thinking of getting one of these awesome units, don’t delay.  They may not be available when you’re planning to buy one.

Barracuda BC37 – The Best Stun Gun

I get asked quite frequently which stun gun I think is the best.  And, while I first have to find out exactly what type of stun gun someone is wanting, how they’re going to use it, etc so I can help them get the “most appropriate” stun gun for them, when it comes to a general, overall answer of which I think is the best stun gun, its the Barracuda BC37.

Why?  Simple.

The Barracuda BC37 mixes the following attributes like not other model:  It is the highest amperage stun gun at 4.5 milliamps;  It is a verybarracuda bc37 high voltage, not the highest, but still very high at 3.7 million volts;  it has the best battery system, not only utilizing a Ni-MH hydride (which is the best type), but also a dual type of configuration giving it the longest life; has a built in charger, so no one has to keep up with a separate charger; has a disable pin so its rendered useless if someone rips the stun gun from someone’s hand; and, its overall quality and durability is unsurpassed by other brands and models.

So, is this stun gun the “most appropriate” for everyone?  Not necessarily.  If someone wants a weapon to protect against a dog attacking their dog, then something like a stun baton or stun cane is “more appropriate”.  But, if someone simply wants a hand held stun gun for general purpose, then the BC37 is by far the best!

Stun Guns and Batons for Dogs

So, we get asked quite often which model of stun gun or stun baton is best to use against dogs.  While there is no definitive single best unit, there are two features which are really helpful in dealing with an attacking dog situation.  These help both if the dog is attacking your dog and if the dog is potentially attacking you or a person.

First thing to consider is preventing the attack.  If a dog is in pursuit of you or your dog, you want to be able to “shake” their attention,barracuda bc37 to startle them and to get them to rethink what they’re doing.  You want to redirect their attention.  Oftentimes, simply by doing a test fire into the air before they make contact is enough to rattle them and get them to redirect.  However, what’s important here is that the test fire HAS TO BE by a strong stun gun.  I wimpy little “poof” into the air is not going to get anyone’s attention.  But, by using something that has high voltage AND high amperage, like the Barracuda BC37, a sound so loud will be generated that many times, the dog freaks and tucks tail.

zap stun batonNow, if the dog does happen to continue or if the dog is already in “mouth on” attack mode, you want something that can reach in to the fight, thus keeping your body parts as far away as possible.  And, to accomplish this, a stun baton or even a stun cane is a good weapon to have.  A stun baton is typically 15-18 inches in length and a stun cane is generally 30+ inches.  So, either can be used to extend your reach giving you a little distance.

Now, with all this being said, please know that there is no weapon that can be claimed to be 100% effective in any and all situations.  Body chemistry, adrenaline and what have you sometimes comes together to give a freakish situation that even a bullet won’t instantly stop.  But, you’ll increase your odds by having something rather than nothing.  Also, know that stun guns and batons will not permanently harm either the attacking dog, nor your dog should you accidentally touch them.  And, the stun cannot pass from the attacking dog you touch into your dog.

Dog attacks can be quite stressful situations for sure.  Be prepared and know that you’re increasing your chances of safety and that of your dog by carrying some form of stun gun.

The Taser C2

Many people recognize the brand TASER, but they’re not familiar with the various models of TASER guns.  TASER makes 4 models for the consumer market.  The top of the line TASER X3, the TASER X26C, the TASER M26C and the model that today’s article is about, the TASER C2.

taser c2

The TASER C2 is an ergonomically shaped unit which was originally designed with the ladies in mind.  It is a bit smaller and easier to hold than the M26 and is easier to get to the buttons.  This model features the same technical capabilities of being able to both shoot out up to 15 feet AND to be used as a direct contact stun gun if needed, as the old standby, the M26.  But, its a little more fashionable and is available in various colors.  Now, with all that being said, what is happening is that just as many guys and women are ordering the C2 because it is so easy to use.

It’s available in just a basic kit that is available only in black, but comes with 1 live cartridge and 1 training cartridge.  And, its available in the Gold Kit which includes 2 live cartridges and 1 training cartridge, along with a holster and practice target.  So, whichever your budget allows, you’ll be secure in knowing that your selection of self defense weapons is a good one.

The RUNT Stun Gun

RUNT STUN GUN

The RUNT Stun Gun is well known throughout the self defense weapons industry as being one of the best stun guns available.  Due to its small size, hence the name, it’s considered a mini stun gun.

It comes in at just under 3.5 inches tall.  And, as such fits easily into a shirt pocket, jacket pocket or can fit easily into a purse or handbag. Or, it comes with a holster so it can be worn on a belt for quick access without having to dig it out if you need it quickly.

Now, what makes it “one of the best stun guns” you’re  probably wondering.  The Runt comes available in 3 models with varying voltages from 2.5 million volts to 4.5 million volts.  Voltage is important because it is the “PUSH” behind the shock.  However, it is NOT the shock.  Voltage determines how thick of clothing the stun gun can penetrate.  2.5 million volts is generally enough voltage to “push” the shock through a heavy sweater or light jacket.  4.5 million volts is generally enough to “push” the shock through a leather bomber jacket.  And, these voltages are generally some of the highest available in stun guns.

However, you can find even higher voltages available in stun guns.  But, in order to generate the higher voltages, like 7 million volts, 8 million volts, etc, it comes by lowering the amperage.  And, amperage of a stun gun IS the actual “shock”.  Amperage is what the voltage delivers when it shocks someone.  And, so, you want the highest amperage possible as this is what actually shocks someone.  Most stun guns generate in the neighborhood of 3 milliamps of current or amperage.  The Runt generates just over 4 milliamps.  While this may not sound like an incredible increase, consider this:  5 milliamps is considered lethal or deadly.  So, just over 4 is quite a bit to the human body.

The Runt comes available in the following models:

  • Runt 2.5 Million Volts
  • Runt 4.5 Million Volts (Black or Pink color)
  • Runt 4.5 Million Volts with Rechargeable Battery (charger is built in – no cords needed) (Black or Pink Color)

All three of these models are currently on Sale at our online store:  SmartStun.com
