What is the difference of a taser to a stun gun? Answered
I think people would easily say the difference is that a taser shoot projectiles and shock them. I dont think that is it.
I heard the difference is that a stun gun is a "pain complaince weapon" and that a taser is a "immobilizing weapon". Stun gun hurts and tasers make you immobilized.
How does a taser achieve that? It shoots 2 projectiles and the body acts like a condutor trying to pass that current. If you use a stun gun the 2 electrodes are too close so the current need to pass only a small amount of your body. That is what I think, can anyone confirm that? I think that is why it only hurts.
What if I took a stun gun and made the electodes to be very far apart? Like take two wire and make a person hold in each hand a wire, then I would turn the stun gun on. Would that work like a taser? So the current passes the whole body and not only a tiny spot.
I hope it makes sense to someone.
