Does it Make Sense to Get a Stun Gun?

Ultimately, the answer to whether you should get a stun gun has to be answered by you.  However, there are several things we can point out to help you consider your purchase.

First, you must know what  a stun gun is designed to do and how they work.  Initially, a stun gun is designed to be a visual deterrent.Stun Gun  When face to face with an attacker, you want a stun gun that will make a loud ZAP! into the air letting the person know you’re about to shock the crap out of them.  And, quite honestly, there are many levels of stun guns out there, each which deliver varying levels of loudness.  The loudest one is easily the Barracuda BC37.  However, there are some that are a little less expensive which also deliver a fairly strong ZAP into the air.  Your goal at this stage of contact with an attacker is to prevent a full on attack.  So, again, a loud and bright spark is what you’re wanting.

Secondarily, a stun gun has to be able to deliver on what it’s supposed to do.  So, here, let’s discuss what a stun gun is supposed to do.  Many people incorrectly believe that a stun gun, with just a split second of contact with another is person, is supposed to knock the person to the ground for 30-60 seconds, giving the user time to get away.  And, while this MAY happen from time to time, every person is different.

A stun gun is designed to shock whomever it is applied to, plain and simple.  Do YOU like to be shocked?  Not many people do and that’s what a stun gun works with.  FEAR.  Flat out, people don’t like to be shocked. Not by static electricity.  Not by a 9v battery to the tongue.  Now, obviously, if you apply only a slight bit of electricity, like static electricity to someone, will that put them on the ground?  Probably not.  A good quality stun gun, however, should deliver much more than static electricity, and they do.  Most stun guns deliver 3 milliamps of current to their target.  This level is generally enough, after 3-5 seconds of direct contact, to cause most people to become disoriented and potentially fall to the ground unable to control their muscles.  The stun gun that delivers the highest amperage, again, the Barracuda BC37, delivers 4.5 milliamps of current.   This level is generally enough to be effective after only 2-3 seconds of contact.  Note:  5 milliamps of current is considered lethal, so the BC37 gets as closer to this level of electricity than any other stun gun.

zap stun batonFinally, there are different types and shapes of stun guns.  Most stun guns are small and fit snugly into the palm of the user’s hand.  A stun baton gives the user a little bit longer reach, and are commonly used to protect against attacking dogs, yet it won’t kill them.  Flashlight stun guns offer a flashlight with the added benefit of extra protection in the form of a stun gun built into the unit.  A stun cane is even longer than a stun baton, again, further increasing the distance between the user and the attacker.  Finally, a TASER Gun (also some units from PHAZZER) have the ability of actually shooting electrodes outward up to 15 feet, thus giving the user even further distance between them and the attacker.  This technology is noticeably more expensive, but for those who want the distance, they feel this cost is worth it.

One other note we commonly get asked:  If you are shocking someone with a stun gun and they touch you, the user, will you be shocked?  The answer is “NO”.  The current will not pass through your target and come back into you.

Hopefully, you’ll find this information helpful, but if we can be of further help, please visit us at www.smartstun.com.

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.

Reminder: TASER Flashlight

Just a reminder, here, that TASER will be releasing their very first Flashlight Taser this summer.  It will NOT shoot electrodes out, rather, it will be a direct contact flashlight stun gun.

This is the first weapon from TASER that will not shoot outward.  Of course, all other TASER guns shoot electrodes.  We’ve not been given any more specs at this time.  As soon as we have more info, we’ll most certainly release it here.

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!

ZAP Flashlight Stun Guns

ZAP Flashlight Stun Gun ZAPLSo, the ZAP brand has been around for a few years.  And, they’ve had the ZAP Flashlight Stun Gun for quite a number of those years.  They also introduced the Extreme Model about a year and a half ago.  They’ve also got a new model, the Enforcer, out now, which is a professional grade model.  But, for now I wanted to point out the basic two models.

The ZAP Flashlight Stun Gun (ZAPL) and the ZAP Flashlight Stun Gun EXTREME ZAP Flashlight Stun Gun Extreme(ZAPLE or ZAPLTE) are both 1 million volt stun guns encased in a very nice flashlight.  The flashlight is made of a high grade aircraft aluminum and has a nice “weighty” feel to it.  You can tell its a very solid unit.  And, the flashlight, is not over the top bright, compared to some of the ultra bright flashlights available today, but it is still a very good quality and bright flashlight.  Add to this the 1 million volts of stun power, and you’ve got a nice weapon to protect yourself with at night.  The units each generate about 3 milliamps of current, which, in the world of stun guns, is about average, and is effective.

The ZAP Flashlight Extreme Stun Gun adds pointed spikes on the end which can double as a physical weapon to pound or punch an attacker with.  The Extreme model is also black, compared with the aluminum (silver) color of the base unit.  Both are very good quality.  And, yes, they’re made in China.  However, the company, PS Products, is based in the US and the construction of the stun guns is up to the specs and design of the American Company.

 

ZAP Enforcer Flashlight Stun Gun

This may very well be one of the Best Self Defense Weapons released in 2013:  the professional grade Enforcer Flashlight Stun Gun by ZAP.

zap enforcer flashlight stun gunIts a 2 million volt model designed for use by security guards, law enforcement agencies, bail bondsmen and the general public.  It has a rechargeable battery built into it that can shock up to 500 times or run the flashlight for 12 hours on a single charge.  Now, that’s power!  The light output is rated at 110 lumens, which is really pretty bright for just a general purpose flashlight.  And, it has 4 brightness settings of low, medium, high and an “SOS” flash feature.

As well, it has a unique LCD display that shows the number of shocks or run time the unit has before it needs recharging.  It weighs in at almost 2 pounds, which is nice considering you want something fairly heavy in your hand if and when you have to go face to face with an attacker.

The unit comes complete with a holster/sheath and a charger for no extra charge.  This is a true “must have” for any security professional.

 

Zap Flashlight Stun Gun

Okay, here’s something pretty cool.  You search for Zap Flashlight Stun Gun, but find out now that there are 3 different models.  Used to be, there was only 1 model and it was really good.

The original model is the ZAPL by PS Products.  It is a 1 million volt stun gun integrated into a high quality, aircraft aluminum cased super bright flashlight.  It has a rechargeable battery built in and comes with a holster.  But, last year, PS Products introduced the ZAP Flashlight Extreme Stun Gun.  Its the same 1 million volts and super bright flashlight, but now it also has spikes on the end of it so it can actually be used in a third way to fend off an attacker.

And, just a few months ago, PS Products introduced the ZAP Enforcer, professional gradezap flashlight stun gun flashlight stun gun. Its a beast of a unit that offers 2 million volts of stun and can shock over 500 times or 12 continuous hours flashlight operation on a single charge.  Security Guards and the Law Enforcement Community love this model.  Oh, and it also comes with a ballistic grade nylon sheath for carrying.
