Electronic control devices, like stun guns, were first used by Police during the 1960's and were simply cattle prod type devices.

Stun Gun vs Taser - What's the Difference?

Fundamentally the main difference is distance and the effects are more devastating when the span of the contact points are spread further. This is why personal Tasers tend to expand before actually hitting the intended target. They will also take the target down to the ground. This is because the current is moving throughout a large area of the body.

Generally speaking, it only takes seconds of contact for the above effects to happen, and when people have any stunning device used on them, then
they want to get away due to the pain. However, a stun gun is different than a taser gun in that the Taser, which is a Brand, shoots darts. Where as its counter part requires close proximity. It is interesting to note that a tazer has a stun gun feature built in as a back up in case the probes should miss.

Also a taser tends to not be as loud as a stun gun when fired in the air. This noise, caused by the ions in the air being charged, can actually scare most people, as well as animals. You don't want to discharge it into the air for more than a second as the unit may become damaged if it is fired for longer times, this is something you want to keep in mind.

How a Stun Gun Effects the Human Body

The muscles work very rapidly when the current is in the body, and in order to protect against the pain, the body usually stiffens up. This also leads to blood sugar being depleted from the body and the sugar is converted to lactic acid. This eventually builds up and then the person who was struck by the device end up losing control of their body.

When you use a stun gun on someone, you will not hear any loud zapping discharge, and this is because the energy is being discharged into the assailant's body. The continuous firing into the assailant won't lead to the stun gun becoming damaged.

Why Stun Guns Work, Voltage vs Amperage

At first glance, a stun gun's voltage may seem high, but when it comes to causing damage or death, it's the amps that matter the most. We sell devices that are less-than-lethal, which means our products are designed to cause a little bit of pain in order for you to gain control, and they are not designed to kill someone. Our stun guns deliver around 3-4 milli-amps, while a lethal stun gun needs at least one amp of power, so we sell products that are below the amperage that could cause serious damage to someone.

How Do Stun Guns Generate High Voltage?

Various power sources are used by stun guns. Some models use 9 volt batteries, while others use NI Can rechargeable batteries. There are smaller models that use only 3 volt lithium batteries that may have a shelf life of up to 10 years. Through circuitry voltage is amplified. The higher the voltage the more arc and loader the sound when the ions are charged in the air.

When it comes to resisting attack, stun guns are considered to be reasonable force. They can be used on many occasions that call for warding off attackers. They can last for a longtime before they need to be recharged, and there is no shock-back, which is a bonus.

Can a stun gun kill someone?

Not if used in accordance with there design, which is to be non-lethal. With that being said when deploying an ECD (Electronic Control Device), like a taser or stun gun, you must be aware that they're not toys and should be considered dangerous. As we discussed above, it is the amps not the voltage that kills, but long exposure to the voltage could be damaging. This is why you should only apply the device during an attack and only long enough to escape safely. Following the manufactures recommended usage and practicing safe ways to use them will ensure your safety and that of others.

Are Stun Guns Legal in all 50 States?

No, Stun guns are restricted in some states and cities. The interesting thing is that stun guns are defined as non lethal self defense devices and simply immobilize an assailant. Some states classify them with firearms and regulate them the same way. Others restrict felons from owning a them.
