In Time For Christmas: Ruger Flashlight Stun Guns

Tuesday, November 5, 2013
posted by SmartStun 12:00 PM

That’s right, they’re finally here!  Originally announced in early October as being the “Latest and Greatest” self defense weapon to hit the market, there was actually a month’s delay in getting the Ruger Flashlight Stun Guns.  But, they’re now in stock and ready to ship…..just in time for Christmas 2013.  These are definitely one of the best gift ideas for the season.

ruger logoImagine this:  your guy goes to the Christmas Tree and finds a small package from you; he unwraps it to see the brand “RUGER” on the outside of it….you know he’s gonna get excited!

Inside, an extremely well made, highly durable aircraft aluminum grade encased flashlight that doubles as a stun gun.  1 million volts of stun power electrify the tip of this weapon.  Its great for you.  Its great for him.  And, its really great to take on walks with the dogs.  In the event of an attacking dog, normally, just a quick test fire into the air is all that’s needed to back the dog off very quickly.  They sense the negative electrical current as well as hear the shock and instantly break their stride.

Hurry, initial supplies are limited.

Get’em While they Last: Runt Stun Guns

Sunday, November 3, 2013
posted by SmartStun 7:38 AM

Not good news, here, today.  The manufacturer of the Truly Great Runt Stun Gun is retiring the current model and replacing it with a higher voltage, but very cheap newer model.  The newer model is a 10 million volt model, which may sound impressive, is truly NOT.

Runt Stun GunFirst, the new model is less expensive.  So, if something is better, how can it be less expensive?  Cheaper quality components.  And, that’s exactly what we find when we first hold the unit.  The first thing we touch is the on/off switch and it feels cheap.  The overall feel of the stun gun is also cheap.  This leads one to believe that the components inside are also cheap.  Is that really what you want when you find yourself face to face with a bad situation?

Second, the increased voltage means decreased amperage.  We’ve always sung the praises of the Runt as being the second highest amperage stun gun on the market, second only to the Barracuda BC37.  And, as we’ve always preached, amperage is what does the stopping of an attacker.  Amperage is what is delivered (by voltage) into the muscles causing the spasms.  Electric laws dictate that as you increase the voltage, you will DECREASE the amperage; its just a simple fact.  So, the new Runt Stun Gun having 10 Million volts, while it sounds impressive, is truly a step backwards in crime prevention.  Again, we ask, is this really what you want?

No.

Fortunately, we have bought a large shipment of the Runt 4.5 Million Volt Rechargeable stun guns for our customers.  However, they won’t last forever, so don’t delay.

Best Self Defense Weapons Companies

Tuesday, October 15, 2013
posted by SmartStun 2:16 PM

Okay, of course, I’m familiar with www.smartstun.com and I’m familiar with www.defenderpepperguns.com as they are part of our brand of companies.  And, our companies only carry the best in self defense weapons.  For instance, you can look at the lipstick stun gun page on SmartStun and see that we proactively chose to discontinue carrying this item.  Why?  The previous version of the SM-Lipstick, Lipstick Stun Gun was a pretty good little unit and was one of our best sellers.  But, then, StunMaster discontinued that version and replaced it with some ridiculously high voltage model that has no chance of delivering enough amps to stop anyone.  At best, it MIGHT be a party favor to have fun with.

They’re doing the same thing with the Runt, too.  They’re replacing the previous model, which is a fantastic model of stun gun, with some crazy high voltage unit that is sold under other names (same exact product) that has one of the highest defect rate in the industry.  Its a shame.

Now, though, I read that Self Tek Defense is launching and they will provide high quality weapons, not like the little Chinese Party Favors that so many others are beginning to market.   That’s right, Self Tek Defense says they are committed to only the highest quality weapons and theirs are currently being developed.

Stay tuned for more……

We told you there were coming……Ruger Stun Guns!

Ruger Flashlight Stun GunWe’re now taking orders and they should begin shipping within the next couple of days.  We’re initially starting out with only the Ruger Flashlight Stun Gun as the demand for smaller sticks and lower voltage handheld units is not very high.  We’ll add those later.  For now, though, don’t delay on checking out one of the best made flashlight stun guns available.

You’re already familiar with the Ruger brand as being great quality weapons.  This model is no different.  High grade aircraft aluminum casing, 6 ultra bright LED’s, rechargeable battery…..all this gives you a reliable flashlight that pulls double duty as a great weapon of self defense.

Walking Cane Stun Guns

Wednesday, September 25, 2013
posted by SmartStun 5:38 PM

Whether you’re needing a cane or walking stick to walk with and want protection or you want some form of lengthy protetion against attacking dogs, the ZAP Stun Cane is very much worth considering.   They extend up to 36″ in length, good for tall people using a cane to walk with or good for reaching into an attacking dog’s body.  The deliver enough amperage and shock to stop any dog and most human attackers, too.

For dog’s though, they typically don’t even have to touch the animal.  Animal’s can generally sense the zap stun canenegative electrical charge in the air and they hear the electricity.  They know something “not nice” is happening and, 9 times out 10, will stop a full on charge just upon a test fire of the stun gun or stun cane.

They have a built in rechargeable battery and an ultra bright LED flashlight integrated into the handle for easy access.  Don’t delay in ordering, though, Christmas Season is almost upon us and, it seems that no matter how much inventory of canes we order each Fall, the manufacture is unable to keep up with demand and the cane sells out into back order status rather quickly.

Its a great weapon and protection.

Stun Guns for Protection

Wednesday, August 28, 2013
posted by SmartStun 1:10 PM

Your face to face with someone who means you harm.  They want your wallet or your purse.  You have nothing on you in the form of a weapon.  What do you do?  You can run and hope they don’t get you.  You can try to hit them and hope they’re not more prepared than you.  You can give them your wallet or purse and hope that’s all they take.

None of these scenarios are good outcomes.

Having a knife in this situation is better than having nothing.  But, having pepper spray or any one of the many stun guns available is a better choice.  Generally, attackers are not expecting their victims to be armed.  In fact, that’s why they usually choose who they choose to mug.  They watch the victim for a minute and make the determination that they think they can take them.  So, if you were to pull one of your stun guns from your pocket and do a quick warning fire towards them, more times than not, they turn and run.

So, which outcome would you prefer to cause?  Personally, I vote for stun guns.

Wicked Lasers are…..WICKED!

Wednesday, August 28, 2013
posted by SmartStun 9:06 AM

We get asked all the time if and how Wicked Lasers can be considered self defense weapons.  And, the truth is that they can be, but not in the traditional sense.

First, Wicked Lasers offers The Torch, a flashlight that not only is bright enough to literally light up the entire city block I live on, but also so bright that it generates enough heat to fry an egg on its lens.  Think that’s bright?????  The college kids who live next to me and have thrown parties way into the morning can attest to going “HOLY CRAP” what just happened, when I’ve climbed onto my roof at 2 am and turned on the Torch.  I turn it off before they can realize what happened or where the beam is coming from.  Its pretty dang funny.

Also, Wicked Lasers offers several models of lasers that are all so bright and intense that they can either be used to shine a laser dot onto someone’s chest, which if you’re wanting to protect yourself, giving the impression that you’re armed with something that has a laser sight on it, usually does the job.  Also, if needed, but not recommended here, you can shine it into their eyes…..it’ll blind them.  Of course, if they mean you harm, blinding them is probably less deadly than actually putting a .38 in them.

Your call on how you want to use them, but we support Wicked Lasers because we know how incredibly awesome they are!

How to Get the Self Defense Protection You Need

Wednesday, August 14, 2013
posted by SmartStun 10:56 AM

Many times, people will buy a self defense weapon without giving  much thought to the actual situation they’re wanting protection from.  What I mean is they just go buy a weapon.  But, they don’t ask the basic questions like:  Is this for me or my daughter?  If for my daughter, how will she carry it?  Will it be in her purse?  Her car?  Her belt loop?  And, if its for her, what situation am I wanting her to have protection from?  Is she protecting against a dorm room break in or rape?  Is she needing protection while walking from her car to work at night?  Is she needing protection while exercising at the park?

All these variables need to be taken into account before purchasing a self defense weapon.  For instance, pepper spray is a highly effective self defense weapon for a home invasion and, in many cases, while walking from car to  store.  However, while exercising, wind can be a factor.  And, a small spray of pepper spray, if fairly windy, will probably just blow away, possibly even back onto her.

So, again, these things need to be given thought before you spend your hard earned money on a weapon.

TASER Gun Models

Saturday, August 10, 2013
posted by SmartStun 11:33 AM

There are several models of TASER Guns that are currently available on the civilian market.

The first, we’ll list is the C2.  This is one of the more popular models as its price point is one of the lowest, yet its still as effective as the other models.  Its ergonomic shape fits many hands.  And, its sold in various kits that supply all you need to protect yourself or your loved one.  Generally the C2 Kits sell for between $300-400.

The next is the M26C.  This model is also quite popular as its not much more expensive and it looks more like a traditional handgun.  Its very easy to carry and very easy to aim and use.  The M26C is sold in a kit that includes 4 live cartridges.  So, other than a holster and/or training cartridges, you really don’t need anything else.  These generally sell for around $500 although you can find incredible sales from time to time.

The next model is the X26C.  Slightly smaller than the M model and it adds some technological features.  But, its quite pricey, generally around $1000.  Most people either go with the M model for price savings, or go on to the next model, the newest model of TASER Gun discussed below.

The newest model for the civilian market is the TASER X2 Home Defender.  Priced at about $1400, it has the ability shoot warning sparks while the cartridge is loaded.  It also has the ability to hold and shoot up to 2 cartridges at the same time.  So, if the user misses the first, or if there are 2 targets, the user is still protected.

Regardless the model of TASER Gun you choose, you’ll be happy with your selection.

TASER, for a Flashlight Stun Gun?

Wednesday, August 7, 2013
posted by SmartStun 12:16 PM

You may be aware by now that TASER has released its first ever, non-shooting stun gun.  That’s right, they’ve released the StrikeLight Direct Contact Flashlight Stun Gun.

TASER StrikeLightI’m anxious to see how well it sales.  Its a little higher priced than most flashlight stun guns, but of course, it has the the quality and brand recognition of TASER behind it.  And, I have compared it to other similar weapons we carry.  Quite honestly, I like the TASER model very much.

Its small, but not too small.  Its well built, you can tell as soon as you put it into your hand.  The flashlight is ultra bright.  The stun, while relatively low in voltage and amperage, is still quite effective.  Most people are not aware that all models of TASER Guns generate relatively low voltages and amperages.  But, of course, we know them to be very effective.  The StrikeLight is just the same.

Rechargeable battery that’s built in and an AC adapter comes free.  Its a complete self defense weapon.  And, even though its only been out for a few weeks now, sales are relatively brisk for the weapon.  Find out for yourself why, by ordering the TASER StrikeLight today!
