I used to sell stun batons to law enforcement. I can personally attest to the fact that the ones I sold worked, having demonstrated them on others and myself. I can also say that a guy I zapped while working one night, who was on PCP, was able to bolt after being stunned with one and vault a 6 foot fence, land on his head on a man hole cover, cross a street and get hit by a car, get back up and run away. He was eventually caught and after the PCP wore off was not in that great of shape. I do not remember them hurting that badly when being applied but they do leave you a little "limp" for a bit which makes cuffing you much easier. If anyone thinks they can withstand one and then jump right back up I would be happy to use one of the two stun batons I have left on you. I grantee the experience will be more energizing than you expect... Grin.
