I have no idea if this is true or just made up for the fun of it but in either case, I did enjoy it thoroughly. It was sent to me sometime ago but I just came across it today again.

If you have seen it before, great, if not, enjoy.

STUN GUN (Only a guy would do this!)

Pocket Taser Stun Gun, a great gift for the wife. A guy who purchased his lovely wife a pocket Taser for their anniversary submitted this :

Last weekend I saw something at Larry's Pistol & Pawn Shop that sparked my interest. The occasion was our 22nd anniversary and I was looking for a little something extra for my wife. What I came across was a 100,000-volt,
pocket/purse-sized taser. The effects of the taser were supposed to be short lived, with no long-term adverse affect on your assailan t, allowing her
adequate time to retreat to safety.... WAY TOO COOL!

Long story short, I bought the device and brought it home. I loaded two triple-a batteries in the darn thing and pushed the button. Nothing! I was disappointed. I learned, however, that if I pushed the button AND pressed it
against a metal surface at the same time; I'd get the blue arch of electricity darting back and forth between the prongs.

Awesome!!!


Unfortunately, I have yet to explain to Betty what that burn spot is on the face of her microwave.

Okay, so I was home alone with this new toy, thinking to myself that it couldn't be all that bad with only two triple-a batteries, right?!!

There I sat in my recliner, my cat Gracie looking on intently (trusting little soul) while I was reading the directions and thinking that I really needed to try this thing out on a flesh & blood moving target.

I must admit I thought about zapping Gracie (for a fraction of a second) and thought better of it. She is such a sweet cat. But, if I was going to give this thing to my wife to protect herself against a mugger, I did want some
assurance that it would work as advertised. Was I wrong?

So, there I sat in a pair of shorts and a tank top with my reading glasses perched delicately on the bridge of my nose, directions in one hand, and taser in another. The directions said that a one-second burst would shock
and disorient your assailant; a two-second burst was su pposed to cause muscle spasms and a major loss of bodily control; a three-second burst would purportedly make your assailant flop on the ground like a fish out of water.
Any burst longer than three seconds would be wasting the batteries.

All the while I'm looking at this little device measuring about 5" long, less than 3/4 inch in circumference; pretty cute really and loaded with two itsy, bitsy triple-a batteries) thinking to myself, "no possible way!"

What happened next is almost beyond description, but I'll do my best...

I'm sitting there alone, Gracie looking on wit h her head cocked to one side as to say, "don't do it master," reasoning that a one-second burst from such a tiny little ole thing couldn't hurt all that bad.. I decided to give
myself a one-second burst just for the heck of it. I touched the prongs to my naked thigh, pushed the button, and HOLY MOTHER OF GOD, WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION *(&*&%^%$(@#^& ;$^!

I'm pretty sure Jessie Ventura ran in through the side door, picked me up in the recliner, then body slammed us both on the carpet, over and over and over again. I vaguely recall waking up on my side in the fetal position, with tears in my eyes, body soaking wet, both nipples on fire,
testicles nowhere to be found, with my left arm tucked under my body in the oddest position, and tingling in my legs. The cat was standing over me making meowing sounds I had never heard before, licking my face, undoubtedly thinking to herself, "do it again, do it again!"

Note: If you ever feel compelled to "mug" yourself with a taser, one note of caution: there is no such thing as a one-second burst when you zap yourself.

You will not let go of that thing until it is dislodged from your hand by a violent thrashing about on the floor. A three second burst would be considered conservative.

SON-OF-A-... that hurt like hell!!! A minute or so later (I can't be sure, as time was a relative thing at th at point), collected my wits (what little I had left), sat up and surveyed the landscape. My bent reading glasses were
on the mantel of the fireplace. How did they up get here??? My triceps, right thigh and both nipples were still twitching. My face felt like it had been shot up with Novocain, and my bottom lip weighed 88 lbs. I'm still
looking for my testicles. I'm offering a significant reward for their safe return.

First time I read this I nearly cried laughing. The visuals your mind puts with this are priceless cause you all know we have thought the same thing. I was just never stupid or daring enough to test the theory. Loss of all body motor functions isn't really my idea of fun, lol.

Thats not a Taser it sounds more like a Stun gun maybe made by Taser. But a Taser is a electronic weapon that shoots wire attached two prongs 10-15 feet away and shocks the assailant. I like the Taser better then the Stun gun bc of the distance.

A stungun must be placed by hand on the subject. Both if the subject has any phyiscal weakness can stop the heart. You are one lucky son of a gun, its a good thing you hadn't just took a sip of water or lemon ade or was soaking your feet.

Most Police depts. test the Taser the same way on one another usually its a Sgt. tasing the rookies. But the reason is so they have confident in the new tool and symphathy for the person being Tased. They also have them sign a waiver and have there physical condition checked. Along with having a Para-medic unit present. This tool has different affect on different people. From total unconcisousnes to knocked on the ground fetal chivering to staggering stupdor to standing light up like a Xmas tree frozen to death if they have existing heart problems. I've never heard of a person staying aggressive after being tased. They make take two or three tasing but thats one drunk/tough son of gun.

The Taser/Tazer has accidently killed several people after being used as a deterant to deadly force. It is a good option but its not a 100% safe but definited better then a 9mm or 40 cal between the eyes or center mass.

You are a lucky son of a gun, thank god you are in great shape. Good thing you didn't shock the cat she never would have forgiven you IF she survived.
