What’s the difference between stun gun and taser?

Are you the one who always wants to have a collection of guns but you don’t have enough experience to understand what’s the difference between them. The major confusion is with the stun gun and Taser.

Come and take a look at handheld Taser vs stun gun.


In some countries now it’s legal to keep the stun gun with you but in some countries, it’s still not allowed to keep them. At the time of working stun gun has the power to produce high voltage current which is the reason for severe pain.

When you use it on someone then it affects the nervous system for the time but it doesn’t give you any injury inside. The stun gun takes about 3 to 5 seconds to work and in this time the gun makes the person numb to perform any function.

According to the research and study, it has been seen that stun gun doesn’t affect your heart and brain after you are back to your normal life. You will feel numbness for the certain time period and then you will be good to go like you used to.


When you are using a stun gun then keep this thing in mind that it works best on some parts of your body where nerves are in high numbers. Like if you using it on neck or hips then you can see the visible results on the other person.

Nerves are easy to catch the current and to make the person numb for the time being. When you are using the stun gun on someone then you can be satisfied that this is not going to hurt them for the lifetime.


On the other hand, Taser is not like the stun gun at all. It has the ability to attack the motor and nervous system at the same time and it can also disable you for a long time. Taser doesn’t depend on the pain but on the right target.



The metal probes of the Taser gun are 15 feet in length. When someone uses them on the other person then these probes attach themselves to the person’s skin and make them disable and shocked. It produces electrical impulses.

The motor system which is located under the muscles gets affected by the action of Taser. You will be able to use it on the target from the 15 feet of distance. Taser do direct contact with the body and penetrates about 2 inches inside a cloth.

With the help of one button, you can turn the Taser into Stun gun and it will function almost like the stun. By pressing that button Taser is going to release the probes towards the target to attack it.

There is no guarantee of Taser gun when you are using it because it can hurt you deeply and it can damage your nervous system as well as a motor system due to the high voltage metal probes attacking the target.
