Whether you are a man, woman or child your chance of being attacked, robbed, abused or raped is one in five. Whether you are a former military man, police officer or martial arts expert you need the right tools to defend yourself against surprise attacks. However, do you really want to carry a deadly weapon and cause someone’s death?
Thing to Remember in Self Defence
There are many things to think about when we talk about self defense. The first issue is whether we want to be the cause of someone’s death or not, and whether we can “pull the trigger.” We can raise about how hard we are, but when faced, do we really want to kill someone. An experienced “bad guy” will rely on your tardiness to take advantage of you and possibly take a gun or knife out of your hands. Let’s assume you don’t want to kill someone, and know that you may hesitate if you pull out your gun when attacked. Now what?
There needs to be an effective non-lethal weapon that will stop the attacker immediately and cause no lasting or permanent damage. Also this weapon must be small enough to be hidden and carried with you at all times. Operation should be as simple as one possible two steps to use it. Guns are very expensive, so we need something that everyone can afford, and has very low maintenance. One never fits all, so we want it to be available in a variety of sizes and styles. The W3 just described a stun gun.
Today you can buy a stun gun that looks like a stun gun, cell phone, lipstick, flashlight or night stick. They can be very large and very strong, or very small, but still very effective. It is up to the individual to choose a stun gun that fits their lifestyle. If a stun gun is used in your home or bedroom, size and shape may not matter, but a flashlight can come in handy. When going out to dinner maybe a stun gun that looks like lipstick or a cell phone would be wise.
Our psychology must know we will not permanently harm our attacker, so we will use our stun gun without hesitation. Normal human emotions keep you from killing someone who tries to hurt you. It takes a large amount of training to train a soldier or police officer to use lethal force when necessary in a timely manner. If our minds know we will not harm someone permanently, then there is no problem directing our bodies to react in a timely manner.
The battery in a stun gun is usually only 9 volts. To convert 9 volts to 1,000,000 volts or more a gun is traded from lethal amperage to voltage. In an electrical circuit it is amperage that kills not voltage. This high voltage low amperage shock will temporarily deactivate the electrical impulses in the attacker’s body causing temporary loss of motor skills and immobilizing the attacker for several seconds or minutes. When the initial shock is gone it takes the attackers several minutes to regain their coordination. Even if you touch your attacker, you won’t be surprised when they do.
One of the biggest advantages of a stun gun is the shock. An attacker will never know it’s in your pocket, purse, briefcase or purse. When you pull it out and the attackers see it, they may have second thoughts about attacking you. Pull the trigger and it doesn’t make contact with someone or something and the gun produces a bright, visible arc between the electrodes and makes a loud snapping sound. This alone can scare off intruders or work well to fend off an unfriendly dog.
