Tasers Vs. Stun Guns: What’s The Difference

When you talk about self-defense, the first items that come to mind are tasers and stun guns. They are often regarded as one and the same but there’s a big difference between the two. Try to hold off buying tasers online just yet and read this to know if it is something that will work for you.

How Does a Taser Work?

 While both are weapons for self-defense, the big difference between a taser and a stun gun lies in the distance at which it can be administered.

An attacker can be neutralized using a taser from up to 15-feet away. However, it is recommended that the target spread is between 7 to 10-feet for optimum results. The taser lets out probes that are connected to the wires to the direction of the target. These probes are shaped like a spear and can get into the clothing or even skin. They emit electrical current and sends an electric shock.

How Does a Stun Gun Work?

A stun gun, on the other hand, requires physical contact for it to work on the target. It contains two or more prongs, which delivers the electric shock. It works by swiftly overworking the muscles and exhausting its blood sugar. This will result in muscle failure so the target experiences immobilizing pain, shock, and utmost exertion of muscle contractions.

Two of the prongs in the stun gun create an electric arc that you can visibly detect while the other prongs will not be visible to the eye although they carry the same voltage. Using a stun gun requires enough guts since the user has to be in direct contact with the possible attacker. But, it is comfortable to use.

If you wish to buy a stun gun online, this item is readily accessible and very convenient to purchase.
