I'm curious too. I was thinking about purchasing the common 100k Watt one for $5 but everyone was saying that it wasn't worth it (even for $5).

I think the only problem with me owning one is that I'll probably want to test it when I get it x.X

Check out cheaperthandirt.com. They got a bunch of them on there. I hear Sabres are pretty good. I think they have a 500k V one for less than $50.

Remember the good ol' days, when you could just give someone a swift kick in the stun spelled backwards? :)

Are stun guns legal to carry in all states? Do they have to be registered in any way?

I bought an awesome stun gun from a local gun dealer near me. It has 1 million volts! It has a light too so I walk the dog with it and use it when I'm leaving my work parking garage. I bought it because a woman was attacked in the building next to mine and she used this exact one and got away. I've bought other ones before but they're too cheap. This one is loud and powerful! The dealer that I got mine from is in Florida and they're legal to carry here. I know they ship too. They're Guns 4 Less 239-321-5025. I just checked ebay and they have them too it's a Zap Light Flashlight Stun Gun the 1 million volt one is what I have. They're $55-69 on ebay. I think I paid around 55

@shellshell7979: Its good to hear your happy with Zap products because I was potentially looking at getting this one.

"I think the main danger is wanting to test it" This is not an impulse buy. Or at least one for people that have impulses to test stun guns on themselves.

While I can understand the appeal of the stun gun and it's ability to harm without doing permanent damage, if your goal is protection, I would like to recommend getting a real firearm if you are a state that allows it. Bullets tend to have less play room with whether or not they'll fend off an attacker. Of course, if you aren't allowed to carry where you live, then disregard, but if you don't have a good test subject around to see how well your stun gun works, then pick up a small .38 or 9mm instead.

@djbowman: I have owned the stun gun I have currently for at least two years. I have carried it with me while jogging by not the safest neighborhoods. And finally last night a friend of mine was curious what a stun gun was capable of. We gave him a quick zap to the arm and it was so pathetic he told me to do it again because he couldn't even feel it.

I have been walking around with a false sense of security thinking something I had was going to provide a minimal amount of protection. I'm grateful to have tested the unit before I found myself stuck in a situation where I needed it and found of it was worthless.

It's not a toy, it's not a game. Testing the unit proved to be crucial to my safety.

@captain_steve: I am mainly wanting the stun gun for protection while I run at night. Although I try to avoid trouble areas, there are always some I have to cross by when jogging. I have thought about a firearm for my home.

@menudude: I am happy with mine. Is the one you're looking at plastic? I've had a plastic one before and it was kinda cheap. The one I have now is all metal. Mine is 1 million volts too and it was cheaper. I saw it tested on a guy at a self defense class. He was put down! It wasnt even funny I felt so bad for this him. He was the owner of the shop so he wanted to show how powerful it was.
Captain Steve I also have my conceal carry permit and do carry a firearm. I work in a government building tho so I cant bring it to work. Also when I meet up with friends to have a drink I cant carry so I bring my stun gun

@menudude: I'm a tall girl, 5'10", and also stacked. I carry a Kel-tec in my sports bra (This one: http://www.keltecweapons.com/our-guns/pistols/p-3at/ ). When it is positioned correctly, it does not print. Having a sports bra that stops most motion control is a must however. I just wipe it down with a gun rag after my run and it gets a thorough cleaning once a week.

@menudude: I love CTD, shipping is expensive, though.

@lavikinga: A .380 auto is a good choice for your application. Practice drawing the weapon from it's hiding place. Also consider an attacker is likely to come at you from behind.

5'10" isn't tall, it's high average.

vote-for2vote-against

@hdtvcamera: High average for a woman??? I don't think so. I hate to reference the wiki, but take a gander at the chart: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_height Granted the stats are from a few years back.

@lavikinga: HA! I actually laughed out loud.

vote-for1vote-against

@lavikinga: I'm near 6'4", a woman's height of 5'10" seems average. "Average" to me is in the eye of the beholder.

vote-for1vote-against

@hdtvcamera: Oy, if that it only were then I wouldn't have to order most of my pants online! Other than one friend and my niece who are both a lovely 6 feet, most of the women I've run across in my life have been considerably shorter. I am actually closer to 5'11" but including that 3/4" when asked my height is a PITA.
Your height (and I'm assuming you are male) seems about average to me since I come from most people consider a taller than average family. My Dad was only 6'2" but my little brother is 6'5", as is his son and all our male cousins are at least 6'3". What I want to know is why the tall men always seem to marry the little "spinners."

@lavikinga: I am 6'1" and I am seeing a woman who is 5'11". I like not having to hug downward. (all this about a stun gun! HA!!!)

vote-for1vote-against

@lavikinga: It has to be a genetic imperative towards evening things out. I am 6'2", and when I'm available I try to connect with the taller women. Who end up leaving with guys maybe 5'7. Once I dated a taller woman who said she was 5'11- but barefoot she could look me in the eye, in my 1.5" heeled work boots. We went on a "break" and she hooked up with a guy just about 5'5. Most of the rest of the times- I wake up next to a spinner. I'm not complaining, I'm just trying.
Also, for most guys, girls pick us. Act flirty and interested, and your rating just went up 2 points. Some cute little spinner bumps me and tells me there's some advantages to being "fun sized", I'm also down maybe 15 or 20 IQ points right there!

I found this website very simple and easy to find your stuff defendwell.com and above all its the lowest prices

That is a packed question and dependent on several variables.
1. Male or Female?
2. How will it be carried? (purse, clutch, pocket, belt, car, etc.)
3. (dependent on #1 and #2) What design/size would be best for you?
4. Do you want it disguised/hidden or do you care?
I would highly recommend you look at this blog article : http://asecuredefense.com/blog/best-stun-gun/
I wrote that article just to help people decide what would be the best choice stun gun for them. If you would like some more information just go to the main site and click "contacts"
