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.
First, 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?
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.

The sales volume of stun guns over the past few months has just exploded! It seems people all around the country are either concerned that crime is heading their way or they’ve already been impacted and are arming themselves. Whatever the reason, people are continually wanting to know which stun guns to get.
This is really a personal matter as everyone is different in terms of what they are wanting to protect against and what their specific situation is. But, bottom line, getting a good quality stun gun is paramount. With that being said, let me first cover what is NOT a good stun gun. Any stun gun that pushes ultra high voltage, say, more than 5 million volts is most definitely NOT a good quality stun gun. This may go against conventional wisdom, but it certainly does NOT go against technical reason. Here’s why…..
A battery is the source of the voltage and the “stun”, or amperage, of a stun gun. And, whatever battery is used can only produce so much voltage and amperage. Technically speaking, once a stun gun starts producing so much voltage, it comes by reducing the amount of amperage, or “stun”, that can be produced. And, the point I’m making here is what good is super high voltage that doesn’t produce enough of the “stun” to do anything? Voltage does not stun anyone. Amperage is what penetrates into the body causing mental and physical confusion and spasms. So, don’t be fooled by ultra high voltage.
Secondly, any stun gun that costs, oh, say $10 is not going to be a good quality stun gun. I mean, think about it. Most good quality stun guns cost from $40-75, some a little more, but this is a reasonable amount to spend to buy a stun gun. These cheap stun guns on ebay for $8 – $20 are just that, cheap stun guns. Don’t buy them…..or, at least don’t buy them to protect yourself with because they won’t do any good.
Now, beyond that, there are many good choices of stun guns. I’ll list a few brands here so you can research them and find the model that will work best for you. Omega Stun Guns, Stun Master Stun Guns, ZAP Stun Guns, Phazzer Stun Guns and The Runt Stun Gun are all good quality products. For one last point, the Barracuda Stun Guns are the highest amperage stun guns available as they produce 4.5 milliamps of current. Again, amperage is the “stun” that people feel. 5 milliamps is considered lethal. So, 4.5 milliamps is almost to that lethal limit.
