How and Where to Buy a Stun Gun
You can buy stun guns at tons of places including firearm dealers, certain department stores and more importantly, ONLINE. Depending on your state laws stun .38 special ammo guns can be purchased online at very reasonable prices. Make sure you check with your local state laws and restrictions before buying though, the laws change all the time.
Stun guns work by using the batteries supplied combined with different circuit board variations to create an electric shock. When you go to buy a stun gun, keep in mind that stun guns have different ranges and variations of voltage. In other words, some are more powerful than others. As a general rule of thumb, go with the highest voltage you feel comfortable with. They range anywhere from 10,000 volts all the way up to the millions. The more powerful a stun gun is, the more effective it will be when you use it.
When you begin looking for what stun gun to buy you have to keep in mind the different variations and styles stun guns come in. You can get disguised stun guns which are shaped like cell phones or you can buy stun guns that look like pens. Deciding whether or not you want a disguised stun gun or an original style is totally up to you. Buy what you feel comfortable with but I personally have always gone with the disguised ones. They are very hard to detect and the would-be assailant wouldn’t even know what hit them. Remember, the element of surprise is always a key element in any successful defense.
The other thing to keep in mind when you go to buy stun guns is your state’s law. Many states have no restrictions on concealing and carrying stun guns but some do. Other states may require a permit. Still others may restrict what kind of stun gun you carry based on voltage, or they may require you take certain classes to carry one legally. Call your local police station and ask them what self-defense items you can carry, and what you will need to do. In most cases, carrying a stun gun is allowed and highly advised.
