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

TASER X3 Home Defender

Okay, you want the best of the best self defense weapons?  While the JPX Jet Protector is certainly the top of my list still, I have to admit taser x3 home defender taser gunthe new TASER X3 Home Defender Gun is pretty dang awesome!

This TASER Gun was designed for the police officers.  Specifically, it can shoot up to 3 subjects at a time.  Or, if the officer misses the first time, like if they’re in hot pursuit or something, they still have two more shots to launch.  So, what does this mean to you?  It means, if you’re sitting in your home and people decide they want to invade your home, you’ve got 3 shots to pop’em with.

And, without having to remove the cartridge, the unit can be used as a direct contact stun gun.  Most people don’t fully understand how important that is.  You see, there are two types of encounters.  One is where you come up to someone or they come up to you WITH notice.  In this case, you have distance between you and you can fire the TASER Gun outward.  But, the other type of encounter is where they grab you from behind and you have no reaction time to fire outward.  They have their arms around you in a struggle.  So, with the new TASER X3 Home Defender, you can defend yourself against either of these scenarios without having to remove a cartridge.  This is truly a huge advantage.

Of course, you’ll find the new X3 at SmartStun.com

Carrying a Stun Gun

All too often, when people start shopping for a stun gun, they put forth some good effort on the front end, but don’t follow through with things on the back end.  Here’s what I mean….

Oftentimes, people will search for a stun gun online, and let’s say they come to SmartStun.com.  They may spend 30 minutes or even carrying a stun gunmore comparing the various features and benefits of the different models found on the site.  They compare the prices and maybe even do a little more research.  They place the order and they receive their weapon in the mail.

And, they continue on.  They open the package somewhat excited to see this new self defense weapon they’ve purchased.  They’ll read the instructions and get it all charged up or put in fresh batteries.  They’ll test fire it and be pretty impressed with what they’ve got.  And, for a couple of weeks, they’ll carry it in their purse or pocket.  But, after a while, the newness wears off.

Suddenly, one night when coming out of the mall and walking towards their car, they’re face to face with an attacker.  They realize they got lazy and left their stun gun at home!

My point in all this?  When shopping online, before clicking the “Buy Now” button for checking out, give some thought to how you’ll carry your stun gun.  Maybe you need to order a holster.  Or, maybe you should order a different model, one that is easy to carry and keep up with.  I mean, what good is spending $50 or $60 on your self defense when you don’t follow through with carrying it?

Phazzer Cartridges on Taser Stun Guns

Not many people know that the Phazzer brand of cartridges will fit onto the TASER X26C, TASER M26C and the TASER M18.  That’s right, they’re interchangeable.

So, what, you ask?  Well, for one, you get a much better selection of cartridges with Phazzer.  Not only do they have the 15 foot electrode projectile cartridge like TASER, but they also offer many more.  The most popular one seems to be the Phazzer Pepper Ball Cartridge.  These shoot Pepper in the form of a ball outward up to 30 feet, exploding on contact and causing real pain to the target.

Also, Phazzer offers a Pepper Powder Cartridge, a Paint Ball Cartridge, a Rubber Ball cartridge and a training cartridge.

Now, what’s even more important, though, is that for the electrode dart cartridges by Phazzer, they have a unique coiling system that minimizes tangling of the wires.  The last thing you want is for you to be face to face with an attacker, you go to shoot them with your TASER and the wires get tangled, leaving you with a very angry attacker.  Because of this coiling technique, Phazzer is able to claim a noticeably higher effectiveness rating than the TASER Cartridges.  Basically, with Phazzer cartridges, you’ll hit your target more times than with TASER cartridges.

Of course, you can get both brands and all these cartridges and more at SmartStun.com

Phazzer Stun Guns

phazzer dragonPhazzer Stun Guns are a brand of self defense weapons that are quite unique.  You see, all other stun gun makers either make direct contact stun guns or, like TASER, a shooting style of stun guns.  But, Phazzer makes both styles.

The direct contact stun guns require that the user makes “direct contact” between the stun gun and the attacker.  And, upon doing so, the user pushes the button causing the stun to fire. And, Phazzer makes the Scorpion and the Titan which are both direct contact stun guns.

The alternative, like a TASER Gun, shoots electrodes which are tethered by wires, a particular distance.  In this case, the length of the wires is 15 feet.  So, the user has the ability to “hit” an attacker up to 15 feet away with a stun.  The stun is delivered via the wires into the attacker.  And, Phazzer makes both the Dragon and the Enforcer, which are both projectile shooting types of stun guns.

Phazzer also makes other types of devices, like spy glasses, knives and such.  But, they are mostly known for their stun guns.  And, let it be known that they are very good quality weapons.

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.
