Self Defense: Three of the Best Powerful Stun Guns

Stun guns were invented back in the 1930’s when a cattle farmer developed it as a way to move his cattle more efficiently. The cattle prod back then was a big, ugly device that produced as much as 10,000 volts. As they say in the movies, “you’ve come a long way baby.”

As recently as eight years ago, a 1,000,000 volt stun gun was a big deal. But nowadays 1,000,000 volts is absolutely nothing compared to the powerful, cheap stun guns on the market. The most famous stun device is the taser. Tasers are a low voltage but a high wattage device that can disable an assailant from up to 15 feet away. It shoots out two darts that are electrified with 50,000 volts. That is not the kind of stun device we’re talking about here.

What we’re talking about here are products for self-defense that are high voltage, low-wattage, hand-held devices that require a 3 to 5 second application to an assailant’s body for it to work. That is far different from the way a taser works.

Of the thousands of stun tools on the market, not that many are in the category of cheap, powerful stun devices. Here are three of the best.

The new Small Fry stun device by Streetwise is 7.5 million volts and has two levels of safety built-in to prevent accidental discharge. One of the best features is the wrist strap with disable pin. When worn around your wrist, should the gun be taken from you it will pull the firing pin out of the device, making it unusable. That is a feature most women love. It is only 4 inches tall and weighs 6 ounces making it one of the smallest stun devices on the market. It is rechargeable and has a built-in LED flashlight. It is only $22.95 which is an unbelievable value.

Another great value is the Touchdown Stun Device. It too is 7.5 million volts and is rechargeable. It has a built-in LED light and two levels of safety to prevent accidental discharge. It also has the disabling pin. The reason it is called the touchdown is because “one touch and you’re down.” At $29.95 it is another great value.

The world’s smallest rechargeable pink stun gun is a Streetwise brand “Hottie.” It is 5,000,000 volts and is a perfect self-defense weapon for women. It is so small it will fit into a pack of cigarettes at 3 1/4 inches tall. It is another powerful, cheap stun gun at $39.95.

Those are three of the best powerful, cheap stun guns all under $40.00.
