Immobilize: 10 Best Tasers & Stun Guns

Whether you are a downtown city-dweller or prefer the low-key suburban lifestyle, the probability of danger can be anywhere and your safety should be a priority. While you are alone and on the go, it is important to have safety devices on-hand that are lightweight, compact, and somewhat discreet in order to transport from place to place without having to haul heavy equipment with you. Taser guns are an efficient and effective deterrent that keep you safe by using electrical currents to immobilize an attacker. The electrical currents disrupt the message the brain sends out to muscle groups in order to use them, leaving an assailant immobile for around 30 seconds, but disoriented and possibly in some pain for longer than that.
