Stun Batons: Reach Out and Touch Someone

By: Jack Krohn

As personal protection products slip into the main steam of society more of them come into the marketplace. Thus it is becoming more difficult and confusing to pick which one or ones are best for you. Here is some biased information on stun batons: how they work and what they can do for you.


Stun guns effectively incapacitate targets by sending a high voltage and low amperage charge of electricity to the nervous system. This causes a disruption in the body's neurological impulses which control muscle movement causing the victim to lose balance.

They also cause temporary partial paralysis and use up the body's system of blood sugar (energy) making the body too weak to move. They cause no long term damage. The effects are temporary. They do not rely on pain for results.


Stun batons or stun guns have been used by police agencies and military units throughout the world for decades. Nowadays as they become more commonplace people are carrying them just for their own safety. I have often counseled that the site and sound of a stun gun's charge might be enough to deter an assailant. If not, then a 3-5 second dose of 700,000 volts will be enough for most people to escape the situation they are in.

Because of its power and extended reach(up to 20"), stun batons are a favorite with security guards. Simply touch an assailant with the baton and pull the trigger: three to five seconds will leave the assailant dazed and temporarily paralyzed. The baton will also deliver a shock when touched six inches from the tip, to prevent an assailant from grabbing it and taking it away.

There are a lot of choices in self defense products today. Police agencies the world over use many of them. Why shouldn't you? If you are in the market for a self defense product look for quality, effectiveness, and a biggie-LEGALITY.

Stun guns are not legal in some states. Check with your local police department first before you get one. The Stun Master Stun Baton is one of the best.
