HOW TO USE A STUN GUN
Stun guns disable a possible assailant by delivering a temporary less-lethal, high-voltage electric shock. Mace® Brand stun guns provide a powerful and convenient option for self defense. Our line of stun guns deliver a punch greater than their size. Each of the products provide a variety of options to fit your lifestyle and self defense needs.They are very easy to use. For example, here is how to use the Mace® Brand Ergo stun gun: When you sense that you are in a potentially dangerous situation, have your stun gun in hand and ready to use. The powerful LED feature of the stun gun may be activated by depressing the round black button located in the finger grip area. Use the LED feature to momentarily distract the assailant. To arm the stun gun, slide the arming switch forward, from the OFF position to the ON position. The LED above the arming switch will glow bright red and the device is ready to stun the assailant.
Many times, the visual and auditory effects of operating the stun gun by themselves are an effective deterrent. The impressive electrical arc and the loud snapping sound will often make the would-be assailant think twice about attacking. Giving the red stun button a quick press as a warning might be all you need to keep the would-be assailant from approaching. If the situation escalates to where you feel it necessary to deploy the electrical charge of the stun gun on an assailant, hold the electrodes against the body of the assailant and depress the red stun button. The most effective stun locations are the shoulder, hip, thigh, buttocks and below the rib cage.
While holding the stun gun against the body, you will not see or hear the spark. You may continue to fire the stun gun for as long as necessary without damage to the device. Once the assailant is subdued, depart from the scene and immediately summon law enforcement for help. Do not punish the assailant by continuing to deploy the stun gun. Do not attempt to take the assailant into custody—you may be injured if you do. When you are in a safe location, slide the arming switch back to the OFF position..HOW TO
