My aversion to electric stun guns was changed when my older brother introduced me to one up close and personal. He showed me a knuckle stun gun which was built to give an extra powerful punch in order to repel attackers as soon as it hits them.
His concern stemmed from a recent mugging event involving a friend and me. I came home one night shaken and just truly shocked. I guess that he felt kind of guilty about being nowhere near the moment I needed him the most.
A stun gun is technically a non-lethal tool for personal defense that wont result in any long term damage. However longer contact can cause even more disorientation that could result in assailants dropping down to their knees after a few seconds.
As I was examining the Knuckle Blaster stun gun from my brother he said that it was able to provide 950000 volts of stopping power. When I tried to hold it as instructed this patented device with soft rubber skin fit in my small hand easily like a one-size-fits-all.
I was trying out the safety switch that was easily accessible to my thumb. A knuckle stun gun is a very awesome gadget mainly because I can flip the safety off and fire with similar hand. This leaves my other hand free to grope for other devices for self-defense.
As a precaution my dear brother told me that I shouldnt linger on to find out if I hit my attacker or not. He was confident that my high voltage stun gun will be effective enough to immobilize any target.
However I ought to take this as my signal to flee and call for help. This is the part where he feels that I should gather my senses and just run as quickly as I can.
I am hoping that nothing like the previous mugging incident will happen to me ever again. Should the occasion rise I know I am prepared. Today I no longer look at electric stun guns the same manner I did.
