Nowadays more and more people especially women are paying increasingly attention to self-protection. Most people do want take an attacker down without killing him, and they are not willing to carry some weapons like guns. So there is no doubt that stun gun is becoming the best choice. But what is a stun gun, and what are the effects of a stun gun? Read on to get more info.
What is a stun gun?
Traditionally, a stun gun is a legal handh...
eld electrical self defense device that has two metal pins in the trigger at the end of the unit. These stun guns have the ability to push down an attacker by simply pressing a button. But we must have to touch the attacker’s body with our stun gun’s two metal prongs and pull the trigger. Typically stun gun can operate on one or two 9-volt batteries and range from 100,000 volts to 900,000 volts.
How it can protect us?
The design principle of the stun gun is causing intense pain and loss of muscle control. Only when the stun gun makes contact with perpetrator, can it make effect. The electrical shock disrupts brain impulses that cause coordinated action, making the recipient unable to control muscles and cause severe muscular contractions that will produce lactic acid. Lactic acid will result fatiguing a muscle, so the attacker will quickly falls to the ground, allowing you some time for escape and get assistance.
In addition, an electric shock from the stun gun will interrupt the attacker’s nervous system and minimize the contact of brain and peripheral nerve. This “nerve stop” will temporarily incapacitate a potential attacker to hurt you.
Furthermore, if the first electric shock doesn’t let the attacker fall to the ground, then you can once again applied the current until the attacker falling down. Because the amperage is very low, even there will be minor scratches or burn marks, no serious or permanent injury is inflicted.
Stun gun’s advantages:
- Stun gun is legal weapon for everyone throughout the United States except for some states.
- Stun gun can be used as an excellent self defense weapons.
- l Stun gun can be fired multiple times.
- l Stun gun battery life is long.
- l Stun gun is a good choice to save lives in many cases.
