From comedies to crime dramas, stun guns can be seen in multiple Hollywood movies. Most often, the person using the stun gun is a trained police officer, detective or a kid trying to get a few laughs from the crowd. While the effect a stun gun has on the body may be funny from the outside looking in, there is nothing funny about being attacked or assaulted.
Stun guns provide instant relief from danger and provide enough time for the assaulted – you – to flee. When it comes to personal attacks, just a few moments are all that is needed to make a run for safety. Stun guns are effective at short and medium range distances and shut down all body systems for brief periods. With voltages ranging from 120,000 volts to 500,000 volts – your assailant is in for an electrifying experience.
Stun guns should be held in a holster at all times. This helps to reduce the risk of stunning yourself by accident. When entering a car, it is best to sit down first, lock the door and then remove the stun gun from the belt holster. Assaults on individuals near cars most often occur right at the door, so never remove the stun gun before locking yourself safely inside.
Hollywood may be able to use stun guns for a few laughs here and there, but the power of these personal defense devices is nothing to laugh about. The effect of a stun gun is not lethal, so point and shoot whenever you feel you are in danger. Safety is the first priority.
