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 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

PINK  RUNT STUN GUN

Barracuda or Stun Master Stun Guns?

Best Stun Guns of 2013Of course, ultimately, its your call.  However, as on most things in life, I have an opinion.  Stun Master Stun Guns are good.  They have truly been the mainstay of the industry for longer than almost any other stun gun company.  However, I do think that in the past few years, they’ve begun to sacrifice quality a little to offer the market more “flashy” type things.  Integrated flashlights, discreet designs like “lipstick” or cell phone stun guns and other designs are more consumer driven, rather than weapon effectiveness.

Again, don’t get me wrong, they are not bad.  But, in the past few years, Barracuda Stun Guns, I feel, have taken over the top spot for quality stun guns.  They aren’t fancy.  But, they are effective as hell.  They don’t have clever flashlights and such, but they will shock the crap out of whomever you stick it to.  Personally, I carry the BC37 from Barracuda.  Its got the highest amperage of any stun gun on the market, sufficiently high voltage, the best battery type of Ni-MH and the best battery design of a 4 cell battery design, rather than 2 like most others and a disable pin.  Its got everything you’d need in a stun gun and I believe they are the best stun guns of 2013.

If you want a flashlight, buy a flashlight.  If you need lipstick, get some Maybelline.

Barracuda BC37 Stun Gun

Before we get into what makes the Barracuda BC37 Stun Gun, the best stun gun, in my opinion, let’s first talk about what a stunbarracuda bc37 gun is supposed to do.  There are many people out there with the wrong idea as to what any stun gun is supposed to accomplish.

Is a stun gun supposed to make anyone touched with it instantly drop to the ground and flop around like a fish?  No.  But, sadly, this is what many people think.  A stun gun works initially on people’s fear of being shocked.  Just like a dog collar, being shocked is not a fun thing and is quite repulsive.  Being shocked, at any level, even a 9v battery to the tongue, is not generally considered a fun experience.  So, people knowingly want to stay away from being shocked.  Its known to be a “negative burst of energy”.  So, that first level of deterrent comes in from someone simply having a stun gun in their hand and test firing it.  That’s the first level of what a stun gun does.  It visually deters a would be attacker.

The second level of what a stun gun does comes into play by its technical specs.  There are really two specs to look at.  The first is voltage. The second is amperage.  The voltage of a stun gun determines how thick of clothing or fur the stun gun can penetrate.  Less voltage means less penetration.  The amperage of a stun gun determines how quickly someone is affected by the stun.  Higher amperage means quicker affect.  1-2 milliamps is generally something that, again, while no one WANTS to feel this, can be taken by the human body for several seconds before causing someone to fully back off.  3 milliamps is what most stun guns work with and will cause some disorientation, and yes, possibly even physical incapacitation, possibly causing someone to fall to the ground.  4-4.5 milliamps is generally so much that very few bodies can withstand it for more than a second or two at best.  Many people become somewhat confused and disoriented with this level of amperage going through their body.  I’ve even seen a youtube video where some guy puts in a football bite protector to take this much amperage.  Kinda funny to watch as his point is that stun guns aren’t effective.  Yet, he has to suit up like that even sort of stumbles a second after taking the hit.  But, that’s for another article.

Anyway, now that we know what a stun gun is designed to do, what makes the Barracuda BC37 the best stun gun?  Well, as a visual deterrent, the sound and spark made by this thing is the most horrific sounding and looking spark you’ll see on any stun gun.  Dogs freak out and leave the room.  People jump when you test fire it.  It gets your attention.  The voltage is 3.7 million volts which is usually enough to penetrate up to, say a leather bomber.  And, the amperage is 4.5 milliamps which is the highest of any stun gun on the market and is just under that 5 milliamp mark we noted earlier as being lethal.

Add to the technical specs the fact that the battery is rechargeable and is a Nickel Metal Hydride battery, which, without going into all the technical support for this, is simply the best quality of battery to use and few stun gun makers use them due to their expense.  Also, the Barracuda BC37 is the only stun gun to use a double battery system for added life and extra power.  The A/C Charger is also built in so the owner doesn’t have to keep up with a separate charger allowing the owner to keep the unit sufficiently charged quite easily.  And, finally, but no less significant than the rest of these points, is that the unit comes with a safety disable pin, which when used, if an attacker tries to take away the unit from the owner, the pin pulls out and the stun gun simply cannot work and, thus, cannot be used on its owner.

Decide for yourself:  Is the Barracuda BC37 the best stun gun?

Is a Stun Gun Effective?

There are a lot of comments out there as to whether a stun gun is effective.  And, as most people do, I have an opinion.

effective stun gunFirst, I think we have to identify what  stun gun is designed to do, because many people think they’re supposed to instantly cause someone to fall down and have them quiver on the ground uncontrollably.  And, while this might actually happen, its not what a real stun gun is designed to do.

A stun gun is designed to at first, look menacing as hell to hopefully prevent someone from coming forward towards the victim.  And, unfortunately, there are many crappy quality stun guns out there that don’t put off enough of a spark to make anyone really care that you have it in your hands.  Second, these weapons, if used, are designed after several seconds of contact, not instantly (note I said after several seconds), to repel an attacker.  They may or may not fall to the ground.  But, if the weapon has enough amperage, it will cause whomever is receiving the jolt to back off.  And, this is what a stun gun is designed to do.  And, third, once again, if its used for several seconds on an attacker and it has enough amperage, the attacker will most likely be disoriented enough to not be able to move forward.  Potentially, they may fall to the ground.  But, at least they’re “stunned” enough to give the victim time to get away.

And, this is what a stun gun is designed to do.  But, notice also, that I said that the weapons need to have enough amperage.  So, what is enough amperage?  Well, 5 milliamps is considered lethal (deadly).  Most cheap chinese stun guns generate a whole 1 milliamp or so.  This is negligible when it comes to stopping someone.  Most average to good units will deliver about 3 milliamps and this is effective if they are applied for 4-5 seconds to the average human.  The highest amperage stun gun is the Barracuda BC37 and BC10 which deliver 4.5 milliamps (just under that 5 milliamp mark) and they will deliver the “stun” when applied for 2-3 seconds onto the average human.

So, again, its important to know what a stun gun is designed to do and what makes an effective stun gun.  Just like anything else in life, when you buy a cheap piece of crap, you get crappy results.  But, when you buy good quality, you get good results.

 

TASER M26C Shooting Style Stun Gun

TASER MC26C

(note: you can click the taser gun image below to view our website and see the discount available)

The TASER M26C has been around for quite a while and many people think of this model of stun gun when they think of a Taser Gun.  This is very similar to what the cops carry.  The only real difference is that what the cops carry shoots a farther distance.

The TASER M26C shoots electrodes which are tethered to the replaceable cartridgetaser m26c.  When fired, the electrodes are propelled at a super high velocity outward towards the target.  The tethering wires are 15 feet in length, so that is the distance this model can shoot.  Once attached to the target, the gun begins delivering the stun.

Now, where many people these days are getting confused is that all TASER products work with relatively low voltages and amperages.  And, I say “relatively” because when you look out into the marketplace, you’ll find many stun guns working with several million volts and amperage as high as 4.5 milliamps.  In order for a stun gun to be effective, they need these higher voltages and amperages.

But, TASER is effective at the lower range because of the frequency their guns work on.  The frequency of the electricity is very similar to that of the human body’s frequency.  So, when the TASER begins delivering the stun, the body goes haywire.  There’s all kinds of this electrical current going through the body, it just goes beserk.  This is why these guns can be so effective at such low electrical ratings.

Barracuda BC37

Want one of the best stun guns on the market?  Most people do.  While we have more infobarracuda bc37 on our website (smartstun.com), I’ll give you some info here about what makes the Barracuda BC37 the best stun gun available.

First, its high voltage.  While most retailers and manufacturers are pushing voltage as the key to what makes a superior stun gun, and voltage is important, its not the only thing.  But, voltage is important because its the “push” behind the stun.  Voltage determines how thick of clothing the “stun” can penetrate.  This unit generates 3.7 million volts which is generally strong enough to penetrate most leather bomber jackets.

But, as important, if not more so, is amperage.  And, the Barracuda BC37 delivers an impressive 4.5 milliamps of current.  Current is the “stun”.  Current is what voltage delivers to muscles.  Current is what penetrates into muscles and causes them to spasm and give out.  This is what causes a person to fall to the ground, unable to function.  Most stun guns deliver about 3 milliamps of current, but the Barracuda delivers about 50% more.  This means your attacker will fall to the ground substantially quicker if you’re using a Barracuda than if you’re using an average stun gun.  (note:  5 milliamps is considered lethal/deadly.  So, no stun gun delivers 5 milliamps or more.)

This unit also has a built in, rechargeable Ni-MH battery.  And, the charger is actually built into the stun gun, so you don’t have to keep up with a separate charger.  Add to this the disable pin which is designed to make the stun gun useless if someone rips the unit from your hand, and I think you’ll quickly see why the Barracuda BC37 is considered by many to  be THE Best Stun Gun.
