Final Days of the Real Runt Stun Gun

That’s right!  We’re in the final days of the Real Runt Stun Gun.  Here’s what I mean:

The manufacturer is retiring the original version and is replacing it with a newer, higher voltage Runt stun gunsmodel, that, unfortunately, is not built as well as the original nor is it as strong, technically speaking.

The first issue we have with the newer Runt Stun Gun is the on/off switch is quite cheaply constructed, and you can tell this in how it feels.  If the first thing you touch on the outside is a cheap replacement, what are the new insides like?  Most likely, cheap components, too.

Secondly, the new Runt is a 10,000,000 volt stun gun.  Sounds impressive, right?  Unfortunately, its not.  The laws of electricity work like this:  Total Power = Voltage x Amperage.  In layman’s terms, this means, increase the voltage and you MUST reduce the amperage.  And, amperage is what actually does the stopping of a bad guy.  Voltage is the “push” behind the shock and Amperage is the actual shock.  So, lowering the amperage means the stopping power of the shock has been lowered.

When you’re buying something, be sure to understand what you’re really buying.  A super high voltage stun gun is NOT something you want.  It will NOT stop an attacker as well as a lower voltage model will.

HOWEVER, as always SmartStun is here to save the day:  We have bought a huge supply of the last of the original models of the Runt 4.5 Million Volt Rechargeable Stun Gun and are ready to fill orders.  This supply won’t last forever, though, so don’t delay on placing an order.  When they’re gone, they’re gone…..

Cell Phone Stun Guns

Many people are aware that there are stun guns and stun batons and other forms of these self defense weapons.  But, not everyone is aware that there are Cell Phone Stun Guns.

That’s right, there are weapons for your self defense that look like Cell Phones.  These stun guns look like a real cell phone, but they cannotcell phone stun guns take any calls.  Instead, they generate several million volts of stun to help protect their owner.  One model is the Pretender.  Its available in either Black or Pink and can be gotten with or without a rechargeable battery built in.  It generates 4.5 million volts and packs quite a punch.  Carrying it around, no one would know its not a real cell phone.

There is also a new unit on the market called the Yellow Jacket by ZAP.  It is actually an iPhone cover that adds a stun gun and additional battery time to the cell phone.  So, with this unit, you can actually take and make calls with your original iPhone, but have the added protection of a cell phone in your hands.  Not bad.

 

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?
