Stungun for power source for coil gun? Answered

I’ve made a coil gun out of a disposable camera (utilizing it’s capacitor).
It shot bbs about 3 inches, and then they’d roll along the floor.

To get coil guns to work you need a high voltage, discharged quickly.

I’ve seen there are cheap stunguns on Ebay you can buy for $12-$15 shipped.
In the 2.8 million volts range.

I think they have enough voltage to propel a bb pretty good, but my question is do they discharge fast enough?

I wouldn't deal with that much voltage it could kill
