Jack Cover and the TASER

buy taser gunIn 1969, the TASER stun gun as we know it today was invented by John Higson ‘Jack’ Cover. In the 1960s, US authorities were faced with countless hijackings where an armed sky marshal could bring down a plane with the use of a gunshot. As a result they were searching for a weapon that could easily apprehend a suspect without killing him.

At the time, Cover was then a scientist working on NASA’s Apollo moon landing project when he came across an article about how a man had become immobilised by touching a fallen power line, but had survived.

Perfect choice for a security guard, bouncer, bounty hunter or anyone who is used to shooting a firearm and wants to intimidate the bad guy with just the look of the weapon. Perfect choice for a security guard, bouncer, bounty hunter or anyone who is used to shooting a firearm and wants to intimidate the bad guy with just the look of the weapon.
Design Features The C2 has a very unique and discrete design. It isn’t shaped like a weapon. It is small (6″ long) and light weight (only 7oz). It only has one button so it is extremely easy to operate. Each firing will send a 30-second pulse to keep the bad guy down. The M26C is purposely designed like a conventional firearm. It weights like a gun (18oz) and it aims like a gun. Its design is supposed to be intimidating looking as a scare tactic. So the bad guy would just give up when he sees it. This is one of the earlier designs by the manufacturer. Each firing will send a 5-second pulse to stop the attacker. The X2 is the best of both C2 and M26C. It has the light-weight design (7.2oz and 6″ long) like the C2 and conventional grip and aiming like the M26C. You can choose to send anywhere from 10s, 20s to 30s pulse to keep the assailant down.

How to Choose a Stun Gun – Best Stun Gun

When choosing a stun gun, there are three things to consider:

1. Voltage – The Higher The Better

how to choose a stun gunThe most important factor is that higher voltage means faster immobilization. This means raw stopping power. Higher voltage also means the current can pass through more layers of clothing and still get the job done. If you test fire a high voltage stun gun (anything above 800,000 volts), the electrical current running between the test prongs creates a bright lightning bolt. The loud, crackling sound is unmistakable and is often enough to send a would-be attacker running in the other direction. However, if the bad guy keeps on coming, you are holding serious stopping power in your hand.

How Stun Gun Works

Stun Guns work by basically generating “electrical noise” that the sensory nervous system interprets as pain or discomfort. This “noise” interrupts the electrical signals that communicate messages back and forth from the brain to the rest of the body. Like communication traveling over the internet or telephone system, these communication messages run through nerve cells that branch throughout your body. They carry information from the brain about how the muscles should move or from your finger tips back to the brain telling how something feels.

The basic idea of the stun gun is to confuse this communication system by delivering a high voltage (very fast) combined with a low amperage (low intensity) charge to temporarily confuse the attacker’s nervous system which eventually leads to disable an attacker for several minutes (depending on the attacker’s body strength, mentality and pain tolerance). The high voltage allows the charge to quickly pass through clothing and skin, but the low 3-milliamp amperage is not intense enough to damage the attacker’s body (unless applied for an extended period of time). Therefore, unlike lightening with high amperage, the electricity from a stun gun is non lethal.

Will a Stun Gun Offer Protection?

stun gun for protectionIn the 21st century, how does one go about protecting themselves from harm? Granted there are firearms that one can purchase; however, these come with their own, often fatal, ramifications.

As such there are more people turning their attention to the wide variety of stun guns, TASERS, pepper spray and alarms when it comes to maintaining their safety without worrying about the implications.

Last year, there were over 1.2 million violent crimes committed nationwide according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, but while this may have seen a 3.8 percent decrease on 2010 figures, the number is still a high one that needs to be tackled.

The Effectiveness of Stun Guns

effectiveness of stun gunsStun guns are more effective and safe to use compared to traditional firearms. Here we learn more about the effectiveness of a device that has been around for decades.

Owning a stun gun for one’s protection is a far better option to make compared to other forms of devices, which often have lethal repercussions such as with a firearm. However, unlike other weapons used by police, stun guns do not function at any distance. In order for them to work the stun gun’s two diodes must be in contact with an individual while the trigger is depressed.

The exact duration of the shock will vary, but it can be anywhere from three to five seconds.
