Over the past ten years stun guns have evolved to become an extremely effective device at preventing harm to individuals in need of protection. However, it goes without saying that in order to appreciate the advantages of the device it is necessary to understand how it functions.

Here are some funny facts, no one will tell you about short guns:

1. All stun guns are created equal. Not true. Don't waste your time with anything under 300,000 volts. It will lack the impact that you need to get any affect on your target.

Plus the chances of penetrating thick clothing are slim. Unfortunately, most popular size stung guns fall under the 300,000 volt bench mark.

2. All you have to do is touch the attacker anywhere on his body for the stun gun to work. In fact, most directions will tell you to attack the extremities of your assailant.

In order to get the result you need you should stun the target in the same areas that you would strike them. Neck, face, genitals, inner thighs. These targets will give you the maximum effect you want.

3. The stun gun will work instantly. False. You will need to hold the stun gun on the target and drive it into the surface for, in some cases, several seconds. Let me tell you, five seconds will be an eternity.

Prepare yourself now for what will happen.

4. The attacker will be incapacitated. Remember Rodney King? Not everyone will fall over even if they're shocked for an extended period of time.

Not all of us are created equal. Some have different pain thresholds, may be under the influence or may be an emotionally disturbed person.

You never know. So plan for the worst and hope for the best. But never expect ANYTHING you do to end the fight.
