1. What Is A Stun Gun?

It is a battery operated, simple, electronic device that has been designed to incapacitate and shock an attacker. A stun gun is not an actual gun. It doesn't shoot bullets. It is a non-lethal, effective and affordable alternative to a firearm.

2. Why Should I Own A Stun Gun?

When you consider the chances of becoming a victim to a violent crime, then it makes a lot of sense to be well prepared just in case the unthinkable should happen. If you do end up ever having to defend either yourself or a loved one from an attacker who is determined to harm you, then having your stun gun on hand can help increase your chances of successfully defending against the attack.

3. How Do Stun Guns Actually Work?

A majority of stun guns are equipped with two electrodes that are located on the front part of the device. You press these against your attack while you are pushing the trigger button. This introduces a non-lethal, powerful electrical current that will pass through the assailant's clothing and body. All it takes is a couple of seconds to render even an imposing, strong and large individual completely helpless. The shock that results causes the assailant to lose control of their muscles and collapse to the ground totally disabled, confused and disoriented.

4. Will I Also Be Shocked?

No, you absolutely will not! Although the current effectively and easily flows through several layers of clothing worn by the assailant, it gets absorbed by the attacker even when they are holding onto you. The only time that a user is stunned is when the person comes into contact directly with the stunning probes.

5. Can A Heart Attack Be Caused By Being Stunned?

Stun guns don't cause permanent injuries or kill people. They also don't cause heart attacks, even when an individual has a heart condition. A stun guns' disabling effects are just temporary and offers you life-saving moment for you to escape your attacker.

6. Is It Legal To Have A Stun Gun?

Some local municipalities and state do restrict their however. However my website www.fortify4life.com removes any items automatically at checkout if your state does not permit them.

7. What Are The Various Types Of Stun Guns?

a. Size: Small, medium and large are the 3 basic sizes. The smallest size, which are often called "minis" tend to between 3 and 6 inches long. Some "mini" models are designed to look like a cell phone.

The most important characteristic that the minis have is that they are very easy to conceal and carry. The standard or medium models are a bit larger, but they are still easy to conceal and carry in your purse or pocket. These standard models are some of the most affordable stun guns, and start at less than $25.

They are a great option for carrying discreetly in your car or "body carrying." The "Batons," or largest models, usually are 12 to 20 inches long and are a favorite option for security guards, bouncers, body guards and law enforcement. The "baton" models also are a great option for home defense and, due to their extended reach, also are popular for warding off dog attacks and among bicyclers, runners and walkers.

b. Power: A stun gun's stopping power is determined by its output voltage. Typically a "mini" falls into the 50,000 to 800,000 volt range, the standard in the 80,000 to 1,000,000 volt range, with the batons yielding as high as 2,000,000 plus volts. In terms of voltage or power, there's a point of diminishing returns. Even a stun gun that is less powerful (50,000 volts) has enough power to drop the attacker.

c. Price: High quality, effective stun guns start at less than $25, with the average price being in the $50 to $70 range. Given how affordable stun guns are it makes them a very sound investment.

8. Before I Purchase A Stun Gun What Other Available Features Should I Consider?

a. It is very practical to have a disable pin. It prevents the attacker from taking away your stun gun and then using it against you. The disable pin has a wrist strap attached to it that plugs in on the bottom side of the stun gun. If your stun gun does get taken away from you, the disable pin pulls out to prevent the gun from working.

b. There are some models that are equipped with a built-in personal alarm that provides you with another dimension for warding off dangerous situations. What would-be attackers really like is surprise and stealth, so activating an ear-piercing alarm will attract instant attention throughout a confrontation, and most likely they will give up, and run away quickly.

c. Other models come with a built-in flashlight that make them an ideal choice to carry with you after dark. A stun gun equipped with a flashlight not only gives you the ability to stun an attacker but blind them also.

d. Rechargeable stun guns are very convenient.
