Security Products: Stun Guns
Security products using electronic guns or stunning machines are typically called stun guns. Stun guns are available in various electronic charge ratings. A person must be touched by two small prongs on the end of the device in order to be able to send an electronic charge to the assailant, so you have to almost have to be in bodily contact with the other person. Sometimes just turning the stun gun on will deter am assailant. They make a crackling noise and a spark jumps across the gap between the two prongs.
There are also stun batons, which come in various lengths such as 16, 18 or even 20 inches in length. Also, there are several new models out now. One looks like a cell phone and delivers a whopping 950,000 volts. Another one is a flashlight/stun gun combination. The latest of the stun guns is the Taser models, discharging several electronic bolts, attached to wires that strike the person, disabling him. The wires are about 15 feet long, so you do not have to get as close to the person. This is a very potent gun and the darts or bolts affect the nervous system of the person.
If you are considering any of these items, please be careful and learn how to use them.
