Self Defense: Comparing Streetwise Stun Guns vs. Guard Dog Stun Devices

It is a different world now than when I was growing up. In some ways that’s good, but in other ways it’s not so good. We had bullies when I was in grade school and even high school but a punch in the nose took care of that. It seems that crime is much more prevalent now than it was when I was growing up.

Women have always been the targets of violence-but in nine out of ten cases? That, in part, explains why self-defense items such as stun guns for personal security and personal defense have become so commonplace.

When it comes to personal defense and personal security, stun devices are the second most popular of all self-defense items in the world. They are effective 90% of the time in a self-defense situation.

There are literally hundreds of manufacturers of stun devices throughout the world. Many of them never make it to America. Most notably in the United States companies like Stun Master, Guard Dog, Cheetah, Zap, Streetwise, Scorpion, Firefly, Z Force and others come to mind. And in another category of stun devices, Taser has an international reputation.

In this article, we are going to compare two brands; “Streetwise” stun guns, an old, established name in the self-defense products field, and “Guard Dog” stun devices a relative newcomer.

All stun devices work pretty much the same way. They produce electricity from stored energy inside a hand-held product with two or more prongs on one end. The electrical charge short-circuits the body’s muscular system. This uses up all the blood sugars in the body and causes a loss of balance and disorientation. The stored energy comes from batteries although many newer stun guns are rechargeable with no batteries.

The “Streetwise” brand is famous for producing some of the smallest stun guns in the marketplace such as the “Small Fry Blackout” at 3.25 inches tall. They make a wide variety of stun devices, 27 in all, most of which are rechargeable; all of them have lifetime warranties. They have a wide range of power from as little as 200,000 volts to as much as 7.5 million volts for the “Touchdown” stun gun. They produce a few disguised stun devices such as the stun rod, several stun flashlights including an expandable model and one that looks like a perfume dispenser.

Guard Dog brand stun guns produce seven models which range from 1 million to 4.5 million volts. Four of them are disguised as flashlights. The most famous of those is the “Diablo” model. One model of a regular type, the “Elite”, is distinguishable with 6 prongs on the end instead of two. All seven models are rechargeable and each one comes with a free 18% concentration canister of pepper spray which is the unique feature. None of their models has a lifetime warranty.

Both “Streetwise” and “Guard Dog” brand stun devices are high quality products that will serve you well for personal defense and personal security.
