TASER® vs Stun Gun

Stun guns are close proximity self defense devices that use high-voltage electricity to stop an attacker by momentarily disabling muscle control. To use, simply pull the trigger and touch the aggressor with the metal prongs.

TASER devices are electroshock weapons that use electrical current to disrupt muscle control, stopping an attacker dead in their tracks. TASER devices can be used both close and far range. Upon firing, TASER devices shoot two metal probe darts a distance of 15 feet to reach an attacker before he reaches you. The TASER can also be used as a direct contact stun gun, allowing for close proximity self defense.

TASER devices can be fired up to 15 feet distance, or can be used as a direct contact stun gun.


PROS & CONS OF TASER AND STUN GUN DEVICES

The Pros and Cons of owning and using a Stun Gun or TASER self defense device depending on which features are most important to you, and are most effective for the situation in which you could be using it.

TASER C2, powerful self defense that can stop an attacker up to 15 feet away, giving you time to get to safety.

TASER PROS:

  • Far range capability offers a safe 15 foot zone of protection with 50,000 volts of power being delivered through two probes that can penetrate up to 2" of clothing.
  • Simplified aim in models with built-in laser sighting. Just line up the red dot and shoot.
  • TASER devices will shock your attacker for 30 seconds allowing you to drop the device and easily get to safety.
  • TASER devices have a direct contact stun gun back-up capability built into them in case of a misfire, missed target, or if the attacker is too close.
  • Lifetime Replacement Guarantee: When a TASER C2, X26c or M26c is used in self defense and the deployed unit is left behind at the scene allowing you to get to safety, you can submit your information along with a copy of a police report of the incident to Taser International, and they will replace your unit at no cost (except shipping).
  • Several models available: C2 Taser, M26c Taser, X26c Taser, and X2 Defender Taser. See TASER Models Comparison page.

TASER CONS:

  • Both electrode barbs must hit their target for the TASER device to be effective, typically both do.
  • TASER devices require passing a felony background check to activate before shipment. This is also a Pro, since it helps to keep Tasers from criminals.
  • Price, ranging from $350 and up, TASER devices are more expensive than stun guns requiring the purchase of replacement firing cartridges and batteries/power magazine replacements over their life.

Stun guns are powerful, close range self defense that are convenient and easy to use.

STUN GUN PROS:

  • Stun Guns come in all shapes, sizes, and voltage! Voltage varying from 100,000 volts to 4.5 million volts.
  • For close range self defense, nothing brings an attacker down more quickly and efficiently.
  • If you touch the person while stunning them, the electrical current will not pass back to you.
  • Avoid an attacker by firing a warning shot in the air; the electrical crackling can deter an attack before it happens.
  • More cost effective than TASER devices, stun guns cost less, do not require replacement firing cartridges, they are powered by batteries or they recharge, and they do NOT require a felony background check.
  • Wide variety of models available: Handheld, Knuckle Grip, Rechargeable, and Womens.

STUN GUN CONS:

  • Stun guns do not have far range capabilities, they are meant for close range self defense. To drop an attacker to the ground, you must touch the person with the unit. We also carry Stun Batons which allow for extended reach if you are interested in direct contact stun gun devices with an extended range.
