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.

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.

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.

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.
