Guns Vs Stun Guns – What New Consumers Should Know
If you are researching personal safety devices, chances are you have had a debate with yourself weighing the pros and cons of guns versus stun guns. These two very .458 socom ammo different pieces of equipment offer different advantages that could mean life or death to your and your family. Read on for a list of advantages and disadvantages that just might make this purchase a little easier for you.
- Ease of Use. Guns require a lot of practice to master. Some people go their whole lives never making a good shot. Guns require practice to shoot effectively, and the nerves involved in a scary situation might be just enough to ruin even the best aim. Stun guns are much broader in their use. You don’t have to worry about aim because you are holding it to the skin of another person, and any skin will work.
- Dead vs. Stunned. Guns carry a much, much higher kill rate than stun guns. Stun guns are designed to interfere with the body’s electrical system. A high voltage charge is delivered that interrupts other signals and leaves the attacker unable to move for up to ten minutes. Realistically, most people recover in just a few minutes, which is still ample time to make your escape. Guns shot well kill people, and with poor aim do nothing but let your attacker know you don’t know how to use the gun you are waving around. Without proper training, a gun is simply a green light for an intruder. A stun gun is much easier to use, and therefore more likely to be effective at stopping an intruder.
- Accidental Firing. Stun guns and real guns both offer various safety features, but evidence of the insufficiency of these measures can be seen in the news every day. Accidental shootings take down children and adults alike. Simply dropping a gun can emit a potentially lethal discharge, where a stun gun is much more difficult to accidentally use. Even in the case of accidentally using a stun gun, the results are rarely ever fatal and never permanent.
