A Little Bit About Stun Guns


The basic idea of a stun gun is to disrupt this communication system. Stun Guns generate a high-voltage, low-amperage electrical charge. This means that the charge has a lot of pressure behind it but not that much intensity. The Stun Gun is designed to key into the nervous system. According to makers of Stun Gun, a charge of 1/4 second will cause the attacker to feel intense pain and muscle contractions, startling most people intensely It dumps its energy into the muscles at a high pulse frequency that makes the muscles work very rapidly, but not very efficiently. This rapid work cycle depletes blood sugar by converting it into lactic acid all in just seconds. The resulting energy loss makes it difficult to move and function. At the same time, the tiny neurological impulses that travel throughout the body to direct muscle movement are interrupted. This causes disorientation and loss of balance, leaving the attacker in a passive and confused condition for several minutes. Still there is no significant effect on the heart and other organs. As a general rule, a 1/4 second contact will repel and startle the attacker, giving intense pain and muscle contraction. One to two seconds will cause intense pain, muscle spasms and a dazed mental state, this may drop the attacker to the ground. Over three seconds will cause intense pain, loss of balance, loss of muscle control, mental confusion and disorientation. Generally any charge over three seconds will cause the aggressor to fall to the ground. The aggressor will be unable to recover for several minutes and effects may last for up to fifteen minutes. Stun Guns do indeed work even on those under the influence of alcohol or narcotics. Even if the aggressor is physically touching you when you fire the stun gun into them you can not suffer from a charge back! When using the Stun Gun on an attacker, you will not hear the loud zapping electrical discharge that you do when testing. All the available energy is being discharged into his body. Stun Guns are designed to be 100% effective even through typical clothing. With a new set of batteries a Stun Gun can be fired many, many times. This makes a Stun Gun an excellent choice for defending yourself against multiple attackers. The Stun Gun cannot be damaged by the continuous firing into an attacker

HOWEVER: Do not discharge the unit into the air for more than one second. Repeat firing for longer durations can damage the unit and void the warranty!
