If you’re searching for a stun gun, chances are you’ll find J & L Self Defense Products at www.selfdefenseproducts.com , you’ll find SmartStun at www.smartstun.com, you’ll find ebay, of course, Budk at www.budk.com and maybe even Sabre at www.sabrered.com . But, which one do you choose.
We can tell you, of course, we’re pretty partial to ourselves. But, here’s some unbiased direction:
Budk is nothing more than a catalog company who sells all kinds of products, not just self defense stuff, but all kinds. So, they’re not really experts, and their main focus is to sell products, not necessarily know self defense weapons or make happy customers.
Ebay, well its Ebay. Who ya really buying from?
Sabre, this is really a manufacturer, but a manufacturer of pepper sprays. Which they make great pepper sprays, but their stun guns are nothing more than cheap chinese imports that they put their name on. Is that really something you want to bet your life on?
J & L Self Defense Products and SmartStun are both quality self defense weapons dealers who know what they’re doing and care about the products they’re selling, as well as their own brand, trying to build customer satisfaction. While we hope you shop at SmartStun for a stun gun, pepper gun, pepper sprays and more, we truly hope you get a good product that will provide the protection you, or your loved ones need, in a time of duress.

One of the best and most popular forms of self defense weapons these days is a stun gun. They’re lightweight and compact, making them easy to keep them with you when you’re face to face with trouble. This is one advantage.
Secondly, while there are certainly many cheap chinese models on the market selling for $10 or $20, there are still many great models. For instance, a Barracuda Stun Gun called the BC37, has almost a “cult” following for how strong it is. Its known for its high voltage, but more importantly, its incredibly high amperage at 4.5 milliamps of current. Most makers won’t tell you that its the curren that actually does the “Stopping”.
Regardless of which model you choose, just knowing that you have a very potent form of self defense in your purse, on your belt or in your pocket can certainly make that night out just a little more relaxing. Never, though, let you guard down.
The Christmas Holidays are nearing and its time to start thinking about what to buy for your loved ones. It seems each year it gets harder and harder to think of something for most people. One thing they’re probably not expecting is a Stun Gun. What better to give someone you love than the security of a self defense weapon?
Many people are saying that the years ahead are going to be quite difficult for the United States. High unemployment and underemployment, expected high inflation and just a sincere lack of hope is expected to cause riots and a severe increase in crime. Rapes, murders, burglaries and muggings are all already going sky high in many metropolitan areas. And, most experts agree, the tough times are only beginning. A Stun Gun may be just the perfect weapon for self defense. They aren’t lethal, so most users feel relatively “at ease” in picking them up and getting familiar with them. A handgun, while very effective, frightens many would be users. And, so, in that case, they aren’t necessarily effective.
But a stun gun, pepper spray or Taser gun might just be the best present Santa could bring. Even Santa is looking far and wide for new gifts and he loves SmartStun.com to supply him with all the necessary weapons to protect Rudolph and Dancer and Prancer as he goes around the world on that one night a year. In towns and cities and rural countryside all around the world, people are trying to get at him and steal and rob and beat him for what he’s got in the bag. But, now, thanks to SmartStun, he’s ready with Real Self Defense.
After months and years of writing about stun guns, it stands to reason that at some point, I should identify which stun gun I carry, as it most likely is what I consider to be the best, right? Well, here it is:
I carry the Barracuda BC37 because I believe it to be the best stun gun, bar none. What makes it so great? Well, its not just the high voltage. Many stun guns out there are pushing high voltages. And, yes, voltage is somewhat important. But, its not the most important aspect of a these self defense weapons. Think of voltage as the “PUSH” behind the stun. That is what delivers the stun to its target. But, what if what is being delivered is not enough to stun someone? Well, that’s exactly the case with most super high voltage models.
You see, amperage is what actually “STUNS” someone. And, amperage is what the voltage delivers. The amperage penetrates into muscles and causes them to spasm and fatigue and give out. A higher amperage means a quicker fatigue. And, all Barracuda Stun Guns deliver the same amperage. They all deliver approximately 4.5 milliamps of current. Most other “good” stun guns deliver about 3 milliamps. And, many models, especially the stupidly high 5 million, 7 million, 10 million volt models deliver far less.
Here’s why: voltage and amperage comes from the battery of the unit. And, the available power of a battery is fixed. If you increase voltage, than, the laws of electricity require that the amperage has to be reduced. So, a super high voltage generally means lower amperage. So, how does Barracuda deliver high voltage and high amperage? They have twice the battery cells. Most models work off of 9v batteries or a double cell of built in rechargeable batteries. Barracuda is the only brand that uses 4 cells of batteries built into their models. And what makes this even better is that the larger battery pack not only delivers more power, but also allows for a much longer battery life. This is why Barracuda backs their models with a 5 year warranty that EVEN COVERS THE BUILT IN BATTERY!
So, all this is why the Barracuda BC37 is the Best Stun Gun in my book!
If you’re wanting a stun gun, but are unsure which one to get, you might want to consider one of Barracuda Stun Guns. They have 4 different models and are some of the highest quality self defense weapons available anywhere.
The various Barracuda Stun Guns are: BC-10, the BC-12, BC-20 and BC-30. The Barracuda BC-10 is a 1 Million Volt stun gun which also has a personal alarm built into it. The BC-12 is a 1.2 Million volt stun gun which is about the size of a pack of cigarettes, so it fits nicely into a shirt pocket. It also comes with a holster for belt loop carrying. The BC-20 and BC-30 are 2 million volts and 3 million volts, respectively. They also come with a holster, but what makes them different from the BC-12 is that these models have a rubberized coating on the case so they’re easier to ensure a strong, non-slip grip. All the models have a disable pin, so if someone tries to forcibly remove the stun gun from your hand, it will be rendered useless. They all come with a 5 year warranty and are truly some of the best built, most reliable stun guns available.
Many people aren’t aware that there is a difference between stun guns and tasers, but there is. Stun guns are self defense weapons that require direct contact between the stun gun and the target to deliver an electric shock causing them to fall to the ground. TASERs are self defense weapons that actually shoot wired electrodes up to 15′ to reach the target, then deliver a similar shock and similar disarming effect.
So, when you’re looking for stun guns and tasers, be sure to consider which type might be the best for you. Some people definitely want the type that shoot giving them a safe distance. Others, either due to budget or just overall preference, prefer to have a direct contact type that they jam into someone’s body. An actual stun gun is generally more effective if someone is immediately upon you and their arms are wrapped around your or they are very close. Sometimes, its hard to get TASER out quickly enough, aim it and fire. They’re both great weapons. Just be sure to get what you feel will best protect you.
What would you want in your hands if you were being attacked, assuming you don’t want to carry a handgun? A can of Pepper Spray? A baton? How, about a TASER Gun? More and more people are choosing the latter option.
Sales of TASER Guns are skyrocketing all across the nation. I believe part of the reason is that crime is skyrocketing and more and more people are needing some kind of protection. I’ve heard recently of a wheelchair bound person being beaten and having their wheelchair being taken just for kicks! I’ve heard of the 16 year old who was waiting on his school bus when people came by and robbed him of his backpack. Its crazy. It seems we have lost our freakin’ minds! But, I think another part of the reason is that taser guns and stun guns have been around for a while now, and more and more people are becoming comfortable and familiar with them. Whatever the reason, I’m glad that people are taking up arms as they should.
Its kinda odd, really. So many people know the Stun Master brand of stun guns. They’re a good quality stun gun, for sure. However, not many people know about Omega Stun Guns , or specifically, the Omega Star Warrior Stun Baton. Omega is one of the original 2 stun gun makers and began business back in the mid-80’s. The other company that was around back then has been out of business for decades.
So, here is this self defense weapons company that has been around 25 plus years. What’s most interesting though, is that their products are the most reliable stun guns on the market. And, not only that, but the Omega Star Warrior Stun Baton is easily one of the coolest and most intimidating stun guns available. You show this to an attacker, do a quick test fire and I’d bet money the attacker will haul butt! No one wants to get hit with this thing.
Another highly popular self defense weapon this season is turning out to be Stun Gun Knuckles by ZAP. First, more and more people are buying self defense weapons just due to the serious increase in crimes across the country. And, I think, the uptick is due to people becoming more and more familiar with the different types of weapons.
But, specifically, I think Stun Gun Knuckles are becoming so popular because more and more people are getting outdoors to get exercise. Enough with the gyms already, right? Well, as people move to parks and such to exercise, they increasingly become the target of a crime. And, these stun guns, with how they’re shaped like brass knuckles, fit so nicely into a clutched hand that they’re easy to carry when you’re walking or running. The trigger button is a split second away from activation and you can quickly and easily be protected. With almost 1 million volts of power, these things are not to be taken lightly either. A quick pop and someone will be on the ground.
WOW! After all the riots and uprisings we had in the United States over the Memorial Day Weekend, the sales of Stun Guns and TASERS have taken off like rockets. We’re seeing sales figures with increases of well over 75% for this time of year. It seems that people here are finally getting the message.
Yep, people are finally getting the message that the economy is worse than the politicians are telling us. And, its worse than the economists have admitted to. It seems that only the financial advisers are the ones who have been right all along. I’ve been warned for a couple of years now that a double dip recession, leading to a GREAT GREAT DEPRESSION is on its way. And, when that happens, there will be riots and uprisings all across the US. Also, people will have their backs to the walls which will cause them to take whatever they want from whomever has it. Stun Guns and TASERS are merely one way to protect yourself, of course, but its a very good way. It seems that many people agree with that line of thinking.
