  Stun Gun
Q: Stun gun - What is a Stun gun?
A: A stun gun is a hand held, electrical self defense device that uses high voltage to stop an attacker. Touching a person with the prongs on the gun quickly immobilizes the attacker by causing intense pain and loss of muscle control. However, because the amperage is very low, no serious or permanent injury is inflicted. They are used by police departments, security agencies, and individuals desiring protection against attack. They have been proven to be an excellent defensive device as they have incredible stopping power and yet remain non-lethal. Typically they operate on one or two 9-volt batteries and range from 65,000 volts to 775,000 volts.

Q: How does a Stun Gun Effect the person being Stunned?
A: The stun gun is designed to key into the nervous system. It dumps its energy into the muscles at a high pulse frequency that makes the muscles work very rapidly, but not very efficiently. This rapid work cycle depletes blood sugar by converting it into lactic acid all in just seconds. The resulting energy loss makes it difficult to move and function. At the same time, the tiny neurological impulses that travel throughout the body to direct muscle movement are interrupted. This causes disorientation and loss of balance, leaving the attacker in a passive and confused condition for several minutes. Still there is no significant effect on the heart and other organs. As a general rule, a 1/4 second contact will repel and startle the attacker, giving intense pain and muscle contraction. One to two seconds will cause intense pain, muscle spasms and a dazed mental state, this may drop the attacker to the ground. Over three seconds will cause intense pain, loss of balance, loss of muscle control, mental confusion and disorientation. Generally any charge over three seconds will cause the aggressor to fall to the ground. The aggressor will be unable to recover for several minutes and effects may last for up to fifteen minutes.

Q: If the attacker is touching me will I be zapped if I use my Stun Gun on them?
A: No, even if the aggressor is physically touching you when you fire the stun gun into them you can not suffer from a charge back!

Q: What is the difference between a Stun Baton and a Stun Gun?
A: Stun Batons use the same technology as stun guns to immobilize an aggressor. The electrical discharge that they deliver is non-lethal, however if you strike the attacker with the stun baton it may cause serious injury or death in the same manner a blow with a standard baton might. The extended reach of stun batons make them ideal for police officers and security personnel. However, due to their size they may be undesirable for some individuals as they do not fit in a pocket or purse

Q: Will my Stun Gun work through clothing?
A: Yes, stun guns are designed to be effective even through up to two inches of clothing.

Q: Are Stun Guns Legal where I live?
A: Customers should view our Stun Gun Laws page and also check with your local police dept if you have questions about laws. We will not ship Stun Guns to the following Areas: -Outside the Continental US -States: DC, HI, IL, MA, MI, NJ, NY, RI and WI. -City: Annapolis, Baltimore and Philadelphia. -County: Howard County, MD.

Q: Will a Stun Gun work on someone under the influence of drugs or alcohol?
A: Yes, stun guns do indeed work even on those under the influence of alcohol or narcotics.

Q: WHAT DOES THE NUMBER OF VOLTS MEAN?
A: The voltage that a stun gun delivers is not necessarily the most important variable in whether or not a stun gun is effective. Although higher voltage can translate into a more effective stun gun, equally important is the delivery and the amperage of the charge. A lower voltage stun gun with a better method of delivery may be more effective then the stun gun with higher voltage. All Stun Guns on Protectionshoppe.com are designed to work, and protect you. We would not offer any item that could not some day possibly protect your life from an attack.

Q: Can a Stun Gun Be fired more than once?
A: Yes. With a new set of batteries a stun gun can be fired many, many times. This makes a stun gun an excellent choice for defending yourself against multiple assailants. Please keep in mind that a stun gun shouldn't be fired for more than a few seconds per discharge. It is not healthy for the Stun Gun to be fired for more than 5 seconds at a time.
 


  Pepper Spray
Q: Is Pepper Spray Legal?
A: Pepper spray is LEGAL in all fifty states. However, some states and cities have specific regulations pertaining to the purchase, possession and use of defense sprays. Please check with your local law enforcement agency for any regulations your state may have.

New York: the sellers must be local licensed firearm dealers or local pharmacies.

Massachusetts: the buyer is required to obtain a Firearms Identification Card (FID); the sellers must be local licensed firearm dealers.

Michigan: OC Pepper Spray can be no stronger than a 2% concentrate. CS is the only Tear Gas accepted. Both must be no larger than 35 grams per can. No combination sprays allowed.

Wisconsin: Pepper spray only. No Tear Gas, UV Dye or combination sprays. OC Pepper Spray can be no stronger than a 10% concentrate. The can must be between 15-60 grams only. Must have safety feature.

Protectionshoppe.com offers Michigan and Wisconsin Approved Pepper Spray.


Q: What is the difference between Pepper Spray and tear gas?
A:

The reaction to pepper spray is involuntary (not dependent on pain response), so pepper spray is effective on those who feel no pain, such as psychotics, drunks and drug abusers. Pepper spray also works to control wild animals. Tear gas is not effective in these situations.

Tear gas vaporizes to some extent. It may have some effect on a person who is hit less accurately, due to the vapors being inhaled or drifting into the eyes. Pepper spray does not emit fumes, and it will not deteriorate with age, but it must be sprayed in the eyes or inhaled directly to be effective.

Tear gas takes take longer to be effective, anywhere from 5 seconds to 30 seconds, while the effects of pepper spray are quicker. Tear gas also takes longer to wear off and the chemical residue can last for days.


Q: How does Pepper Spray Work?
A:

Pepper spray's active ingredient is OC or oleoresin capsicum. The OC is derived from Cayenne peppers these are some of the hottest peppers in the world. Unlike MACE or tear gas, which are irritants, pepper spray OC is an inflammatory agent.

Contact with mucous membranes (eyes, nose, throat and lungs) causes immediate dilation of the capillaries. This can result in temporary blindness and instant inflammation of the breathing tube tissues and systematically cuts of all but life support breathing.

OC also will create an intense burning sensation on the surface of the skin. However, OC will cause no lasting after effects. The effects last from 15 to 60 minutes. Because OC is an inflammatory agent and not an irritant it is effective on those who feel no pain such as psychotics and those under the influence of drugs or alcohol.


Q: What is Pepper Spray made of?
A: Pepper spray is a derivative of Cayenne pepper. The oils are extracted from the pepper using a high-pressure process. This process leaves you with the active ingredient in pepper spray known as OC or OleoResin Capsicum. The pure pepper extract is then diluted with an inert ingredient that reduces the SHU or Scoville Heat Unit to get it down to a useable SHU for pepper spray. SHU is a unit of measurement that determines how hot something is, the rating goes from 1 million SHU up to 5 million SHU. 1 million SHU is detectable on the palette in concentrations as little as 1 part per million or 1 drop of OC in 1 million drops of water.

Q: How do you use Pepper Spray?
A: If you have to use your pepper spray make sure you have distance between you and the attacker if at all possible. Aim the spray at the eyes and facial region of the attacker then release a 1 to 2 second burst of spray. After you have done this, move out of the way but keep your eyes on the attacker. Pepper spray can take a couple of moments to cause a reaction and by watching the reactions of the attacker you will be able to determine if you will require another shot of pepper spray. Once the attacker is incapacitated, seek help and call the police.

Q: Are there places I cannot take my Pepper Spray?
A: Yes. You cannot carry pepper spray on board commercial aircraft. This is a Federal crime that can carry up to a $25,000 dollar fine. It is ok to carry pepper spray in your checked baggage although it is highly advisable that you notify the ticketing agent when you check your baggage. Also since 9/11/01 you may have issues when carrying pepper spray into secured locations such as a Federal buildings, State buildings or anyplace where you pass through a security checkpoint. Although there are no laws that we are aware of you should use your common sense here.

Q: Will my Pepper Spray Expire?
A: Yes. The normal shelf life for pepper spray is usually about 2 years from the date of purchase. Although the spray life is indefinite it does start to lose potency over time. Any use of the spray beyond the expiration date is HIGHLY unadvisable. We strongly advise you to replace your pepper spray every year! That way you are always assured of the potency of the spray.

Q: How can I be sure my Pepper Spray will work when I need it?
A: You should get in the habit of testing your pepper spray every 90 days. To do this first go outside and determine which direction the wind is blowing. Remember to always stand upwind from the direction you are spraying. Depress the firing mechanism for second. This test should be performed upon purchase and every 90 days after that. Be aware that every time you test your spray you reduce the contents of the canister. If you are using a key chain model and you test regularly you will need to replace the unit every 9 to 12 months if you follow the recommended testing procedure above.
