Ruger is now in the Stun Gun Business

So, here’s what we now know about the Ruger Stun Guns.  All that Ruger Flashlight Stun GunRuger did was license the use of their name to PS Products, allowing PS Products to put the Ruger name on the exact same stun guns that are also ZAP Stun Guns.

So, the really great flashlight stun gun that ZAP has had for years, is also now available under the Ruger name…..it just costs more.  Now, to be fair, while the Ruger unit is the exact same unit that has been around, PSP will be putting out a new ZAP Flashlight Stun Gun very soon.  And, it will not be branded as Ruger.  Kinda confusing I know.

The ZAPSticks, both 650 and 800 models, will now also be available as Ruger, again, just more expensive.  So, I have to say, I don’t really care fo this type of approach.  I mean, if you want to get into a market, bring something new to the market or buy one of the previous players.  But, don’t just add your name to something and jack up the price.

Sorry, but I think these will fade out over time.  For now, we have added the Ruger Flashlight to our line up at SmartStun, because, again, it will soon be different than the ZAP flashlight.  But, we’ve not added the new Ruger Sticks nor the Ruger Stun Guns.  We just don’t think its right.  Let us know your thoughts.

Flashlight Stun Gun from ZAP

The ZAP Brand of self defense products has been around for a while and is manufactured by PS Products.  This company is unique in the industry as they design and have their own products manufactured, rather than taking on some of the cheap chinese products and putting their name on them.  PS Products holds patents on the design of their weapons, as many of their stun guns and such are unique to them.

For instance, the new ZAP Enforcer Professional Grade Flashlight Stun Gun is one that can only be gotten from ZAP.  There is not another unit like it out there that is sold under another brand.  This unit is 2 million volt, heavy duty flashlight with display on it that lets the user know how much charge is left on the battery.

The ZAPL, 1 million volt flashlight stun gun and the the ZAPLTE, 1 Million volt Extreme Flashlight Stun Gun are also 2 unique models that cannot be gotten under any other brands.

All 3 of these units are of the highest quality, and while they are all manufactured in China, they are only done so according to the specs of PS Products.  Whereas many stun guns are designed and made in China, then marketed to US companies who then put their name on them. So, if you see anything from ZAP or PS Products, you can rest assured you’re getting the best in self defense.

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 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!

 

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.
