Check out a Stun Gun for Sale Online

You can find a stun gun for sale online and the best part of that is being able to compare a wide range of models so that you can most easily select which weapon is best for you.

Most regular brick and mortar stores can’t stock dozens and dozens of models of stun guns for sale.  Keeping all that stock sitting on theStun Gun For Sale shelf is just too much money tied up for any store owner.  But, since most stun guns and Taser guns are drop shipped from large warehouses, websites don’t have to carry all that stock.  This makes it possible for the shopper to view all the technical specs, styles of stun guns and stun batons, and brands and models, as well as prices, so they can make the best choice.

When it comes to shopping for a stun gun, go to a site like SmartStun where you’ll find so many brands and all the various types of self defense weapons.  You’ll even find what the owner considers to be the best stun gun and why, along with a pretty amazing special price.

The Best Stun Gun is the One You’ll Carry

That’s right, the best stun gun is the one you’ll carry.  What good is buying a high performance stun gun or taser gun if all you’re gonna do is leave it in your purse?  Or, maybe you leave it at home because you haven’t bought fresh batteries for it.  What good is that?  None!

While we’ve been very clear, technically speaking, we feel the Barracuda BC37 is the best stun gun on the market, if you don’t carry it but, instead, will carry a stun baton, then the stun baton would be the best stun gun for you to get.  I know this sounds obvious.  But, you’d be surprised to hear what all I hear when it comes to people buying, then, not carrying their weapons.

People do a lot of researching and asking questions, almost to the point of never doing anything for fear of making the wrong decision.  Then, they make their purchase.  And, they carry their weapon for a few weeks.  But, then, the batteries die and they don’t replace them.  Or, they lose the AC charger.  Or, they misplace their stun gun.  Or, they leave it in their purse, buried under lipstick and tons of other crap.  Then, one day, BAM!  They’re face to face with someone wanting their wallet or purse.  They have no choice.

They wasted their money in buying a stun gun.  And, now they’ve wasted their pride and much more.  So, we applaud you for doing your research.  But, be sure to follow through.  People are counting on you coming home safely.

Which Stun Gun Should you Get?

That’s a very interesting question, to which, there is no easy question.  People have been asking us for years which stun gun to get.  And, its not always the same make and model.  Why?  Well, there are different makes and models of these weapons for a reason.

For instance, some people might consider getting a stun gun that is discreet.  They may want this with the thought process that they don’t want to antagonize a possible attacker.  Some people want a stun baton, that allows for a greater reach, but of course, is of the size that puts it right out there for anyone to see.  Some people might be best suited getting a flashlight that doubles as a stun gun, so that they have the ability to light up a dark area, or, perhaps if they walk their dog at night frequently.

There are so many different possibilities as to when and where someone may be getting a stun gun for, that we really have to take the time to find out what their purpose and use is, before we can recommend which stun gun they should get.

Either way, SmartStun.com can certainly help you when you’re ready to get your stun gun or baton.

ZAP 1 Million Volt Stun Baton with Flashlight

The ZAP 1 Million Volt Stun Baton with Flashlight has ALWAYS been one of our best sellers.  Not only is it visually impressive, it is very effective.

zap stun batonThe ZAP Stun Baton with Flashlight looks like a weapon.  So, that, when you’re carrying it, people can tell right away that you’ve got something on you that should make them think twice about approaching you.  It is a very effective means of visual deterrent, oftentimes capable of preventing an attack before one even begins.  And, isn’t that the best scenario?

But, if you need to use it, its easy to use and very effective.  With stun electrodes in 3 areas on the stun baton, the tip, the sides of the shaft and underneath the handle, its very easy to hit your target.  And, another very impressive use of this stun baton is for repelling an attacking dog.  Dogs and most animals have the ability to sense the negative charge of the stun when a stun gun is test fired.  So, even beyond just the sound a stun gun or baton makes, animals sense the electricity in the air when you test fire it and this alone, usually sends the dog scrambling for cover.

People love to carry the ZAP stun baton when walking alone or with their dogs, when going across a parking lot at night.  The built in flashlight is very nice to have at your fingertips to help light your way.  And, the baton even comes with a holster so that you can easily carry the unit with you without having to keep it in your hands at all times.

ZAP has a very impressive line up of self defense weapons and this is certainly one of them.

Omega Star Warrior Stun Baton

What’s the purpose of a stun gun or stun baton?  Its to protect you from getting hurt or mugged, right?  What better way to prevent yourself from getting hurt than to prevent an attack altogether. In order to do this, you want something that’s an effective visual deterrent like the Omega Star Warrior Stun Baton.

The thing is this:  When you’re face to face with someone who intends to hurt you, if you canOmega Stun Guns and batons hold up your Omega Star Warrior, which is so visually stunning when test fired, most people would stop and back away.  And, if that happens, then you never even have to go hand to hand against them.  This stun baton is so visually incredibly that it was actually used in a movie.

Now, many people compare the voltage of the Omega Stun Gun line-up (which also includes the Secret Agent, the Super Stunner and the Super Baton) to that of other stun guns available today and think Omega’s are not as strong.  And, while they’re not super high voltage (note:  voltage does not determine the effectiveness of a stun gun; voltage only determines how thick of clothing that the “stun” can penetrate) compared to other models available today, they are still highly effective.

Think of it this way, if you put the Star Warrior baton up against someone’s neck or their arm or even their torso, the stun baton is going to deliver the “stun”.  And, its the power of the “stun” that actually determines whether someone feels it or not.  A 10 million volt stun gun, which can only generate a very very slight “stun” will not stop anyone.  A battery can only generate so much power.  And, if the stun gun or baton is using all the power to create high voltage, the resulting “stun” or amperage has to be reduced.  Voltage + Amperage = Power.  So, again, if you increase the voltage, you decrease the amperage.

Omega Stun Guns and Stun Batons have been around since the 1980’s.  In fact, they are the oldest manufacturer of stun guns around today.  There were 2 companies that created these self defense weapons decades ago.  One went out of business and Omega is the only one still around.  Why?  Because their products work.  Find out why so many Security Companies and other professionals have relied on Omega Stun Guns for decades.

Get a Stun Gun

Okay, so you want to get a stun gun, right?  But, which one?  I mean, there are a lot of different makes and models of these self defense weapons out there.  How do you know which one to get?

Well, its really quite an individual thing.  I mean, some people might need a hand held stun gun and some people might need a stun baton for their particular situation.  So, when you go to get a stun gun, you have to decide which type will best suit your needs.  But, we can tell you a few things to look for.

First, look for a high amperage model.  Most makers and sellers are pushing ultra high voltages of 5 million volts and more.  While voltage is something to consider, its not the most important factor.  In fact, typically, to get high voltage, the maker has to reduce the amperage.  That’s very unfortunate, because its actually the amperage that stops someone.  Its the current, or amperage that gets into someone’s muscles and causes them to spasm and fatigue.  If high voltage is only delivering a little bit of amperage, you’re not going to stop anyone.  3 milliamps is pretty common, and the highest amperage models are the Barracuda BC10 and BC37 stun guns.  They each deliver about 4.5 milliamps, this is 50% more than the average.

A strong battery is also essential, since this is the power source of the electric shock.  If its a a rechargeable stun gun, you want one that utilizes Ni-MH batteries.  In short, these are the only types you want.  If the unit works off of 9v batteries, you want one that requires 2 – 9v batteries, not just one.

Finally, make sure whomever you buy from has a satisfaction guarantee and that they’ll back it up.  All too often, we hear of people buying something that ‘sounds” great on the website, but once they get it, only makes a little tingle on the electrodes.  If that happens to you, get your money back and shop at SmartStun

Which Stun Baton to Get?

Stun Batons are about as popular as most stun guns, overall.  In fact, stun baton sales make up just over 40% of our sales.  But, which one should you get?  The answer is not easy as saying one model is the best and that’s the one you should get.

I can tell you, however, there are 3 or 4 really popular models.  One we sell the most of is the ZAP Stun Baton.  Its size makes it comfortable for virtually everyone to carry.  Its not too big, nor too small.  It has electrodes in more places than just the tip, it even has them underneath the wrap around handle so that if you have to swing at someone, you’re more likely to hit them with the electrified electrodes.  This stun baton has a rechargeable battery built into it and even offers a flashlight to allow for double duty.

The Omega Super Baton is also a very commonly purchased stun baton, as is the Omega Star Warrior.  The Super Baton is one of the longest made, giving the user a little bit more reach, and thus distance between them and the attacker.  The Star Warrior is unique in that it sends electrical sparks up and down the shaft making a visually menacing display that pretty much scares the crap out of anyone face to face with the baton.  Both made by Omega, which is a company that’s been around since the mid-1980’s and is one of the original stun gun makers.  They are both designed in the U.S. and, while manufactured in China, are not cheap chinese toys.

These are just 3 models of stun batons that we carry and are easily some of the best.  If we can help anyone select which model might be the best for their particular use, please contact us through SmartStun.com.  And, by the way, stun batons are the most common use for stun gun protection against attacking dogs.

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.

Stun Gun for Dogs

I’m a dog lover and I hate to think that anyone would intentionally hurt a dog with a stun gun.  But, I also know, first hand, that there are times when we’re out walking, either ourselves or our dogs, that other dogs charge us and attack us.  I’ve had my dog mauled while on the end of a leash I was holding.  It was horrifying.  I understand the situation.

So, with all that being said, recognizing there are times when we must protect ourselves or our animals, having a stun gun on hand for thisstun gun for dogs is a smart move.  So, which kind of stun gun is good for this?  Personally, I prefer a stun baton or a stun cane for this situation, because they give “reach” in case an actual attack occurs.  You don’t have to put your hand into the middle of the fight in order to stop a dog.

But, first, let’s recognize that dogs are animals.  And, as such, they sense the electrical charge of a stun gun much better than humans.  So, its been my experience that a simple test fire into the air of most any stun gun, prior to them engaging in actual attack onto me or my dog, is enough to get their attention and stop them.  They sense the current and they back off.  So, with this, really, having any stun gun that gives off a very strong electrical charge is appropriate for stopping an attack before it starts.  But, again, if that doesn’t stop it, I recommend a stun baton, which are generally about 15 inches in length or a stun cane, which are generally 32-36 inches in length, so you can reach into the fight, without putting your hand or arm in harm’s way.

 

ZAP Stun Baton

The other day, I wrote about the flashlight stun gun from ZAP.  Today, I’m going to tell a little about the ZAP Stun Baton.  This is one of our website’s top sellers.

Many people like a stun baton due to its size.  They figure it is a little more menacingzap stun baton looking and will hopefully prevent an attack, rather than just defend someone who is already being attacked.  So, this is one obvious advantage.  But, also, they are easy to swing at an attacker and make contact, rather than a smaller hand-held stun gun.  But, I think at this point, that just comes down to personal preference.

Now, the ZAP Stun Baton generates 1 million volts of power.  And, as we always say here, its not the voltage that stops someone, its the amperage.  But, voltage is what determines how thick of clothing the stun can penetrate.  And, this level of voltage will typically penetrate through a shirt or light jacket and will very easily work on bare skin as well as dog fur, if someone is using it to ward off an attacking dog.

The amperage of this unit is pretty typical in the 3 milliamp range and this is effective in dropping an average person after about 3-4 seconds of direct contact.  Not the quickest on the market, but still pretty typical in the world of stun guns.

The baton also has a built in LED flashlight, which is kinda nice, should you need one.  It has a rechargeable, built in battery and comes with a holster.  And, it has electrodes not only on the rod portion of the baton, but also around the grip, making it easier for the user to make contact of the stun electrodes to the attacker.

I think its pretty easy to see why this has always been one of our best sellers!
