What is a Stun Gun?

Well this is a pretty easy question. Since I am involved in self defense products and their uses, I get this question a lot. People will either send me an e-mail, call me, write me or text me ask me the age old question; what is a stun gun? Well it might not be that dramatic but people really do ask me certain questions about this lovely little device.

People want to know what a stun gun does, how it works, which one is the best to buy and so on. Well lucky for you I am going to answer these questions for you. Lets start with the first question.

How exactly does a stun gun work?

The batteries supply electricity to a circuit consisting of various electrical components. The circuitry includes multiple transformers, components that boost the voltage in the circuit, typically to between 20,000 and 150,000 volts, and reduce the amperage. It also includes a oscillator, a component that fluctuates current to produce a specific pulse pattern of electricity. This current charges a capacitor. The capacitor builds up a charge, and releases it to the electrodes, the “business end” of the circuit.

What does a stun gun do to the body?

The basic idea of a stun gun is to disrupt this communication system. Stun guns generate a high-voltage, low-amperage electrical charge. In simple terms, this means that the charge has a lot of pressure behind it, but not that much intensity. When you press the stun gun against an attacker and hold the trigger, the charge passes into the attacker’s body. Since it has a fairly high voltage, the charge will pass through heavy clothing and skin. But at around 3 milliamps, the charge is not intense enough to damage the attacker’s body unless it is applied for extended periods of time.

Which stun gun is the best to buy?

This is an easy one. This all depends on your personal preference. There are pink stun guns, yellow ones, camouflage ones, big ones, small ones, short ones, tall ones. Well I know I got a little Doctor Seuss on you there but you get the picture. My personal favorite is the cell phone stunner. It is shaped and looks like a cell phone but it is every bit a powerful stun gun.

Well there you have it. You now know how a stun gun works, what it does to the body and which one you should buy. I guess the only thing you have left to do is buy one, right? Well whatever you decide to do be safe and I wish everyone the best in all their duties and in life. And now that you have read this, you are “Not a Victim”, you’re a survivor! God Bless!
