As an alterative to pepper spray what do you all think apout the use of stun guns to help one get away from an attacker?

I see stun guns as having the disadvantages of a gun without the advantages - require accuracy, can kill children and sick people.

I think the Taser is an effective alternative to stopping one person armed or unarmed with a knife or blunt object.

The Taser has an advantage over the Stun Gun prodder in that you don't have to be in striking range. The Taser can be effective out 7-10 yards, most have laser sights.

Rumours are spreading that the Stun gun can and has killed detained suspects, Shocked it can disrupt the hearts rythum causing failure.

Not sure about others but the latest Taser model has 1/100th of the charge as that of a defibrillator. Those deaths that have occurred are as related to cocaine and meth use as they are electric shock.

Just keeping it real. Too many rumors running around.

I don't have one,but I'd like to. Problem with the old ones is it's a close range weapon.

Pepper spray is close range, while stun guns are "long" range weapons. I think that they might be a better defense than pepper spray, although both require accuracy to use effectively, the taser can hit any part of the body and be effective, whereas the spray has to be directed at the eyes.

I just woke my roommate up laughing so loud...MAGr...jeesh!

I specifically meant the long range shooter types, but the short range cattle prod styles work the same way. Point being pepper spray only works when it hits the eyes, stun guns work wherever you hit your attacker.
