4KV Taser! -Help Me Design! Answered

Hello!
I'm Alex and i like high voltage!

Now to the matter at hand...
You know those disposable camera circuits?
I noticed that they have 2 coils, one for charging the capacitor and one for triggering the flash.
i was wondering if someone could help me build/design a circuit that uses the trigger coil.
Electronic Goldmine has a Mini 4KV trigger coil that claims to be of high voltage.
Does anyone know how i can wire it to produce HV in pulses?

Thanks!
-Alex

a cmos 555 in ashtable can produce pretty fast pulses. attach it through a 2n3055 to power and the coil on the transistors emitter, and it could work.

Why the 2n3055? why not 2n3904? i was thinking maybe make a couple kits powered by 9v, sell them at school

a 2n3055 has a high amperage rating, which will help it handle the kickback from the coil.

also, i suggest shielding the 555 from emf, and heat sinking the transistor.

if you dont know where to get the CMOS 555 that tech king suggested, then pm me.
