    at 1,000,000 volts, this is the highest voltage stun gun available. Just test firing this unit into the air is often enough to stop an attacker. As the bright electric current pulsates between the test prongs and creates an intimidating electrical sound an attacker with any sense at all will be stopped in his tracks. If the sight and sound doesn't stop them a jolt from this unit certainly will! When an attacker is touched by the Small Fry it will disrupt the message the brain sends to the voluntary muscles. Simply touching an attacker for three to five seconds will deliver a high voltage shock causing loss of balance and muscle control, confusion, and disorientation bringing him to his knees and making him incapable of further aggressive activity. Full recovery takes about five to ten minutes and there is no permanent harm.

    The stun gun short-circuits your voluntary nervous system. Generally stun guns are about 30,000 volts and an extremely low amperage. A million volts and you would look look like a pile of charcoal.

    They start convulsing really bad. Unusually it just takes one shot but occasionally it takes two. They usually see the light after that. It's non-lethal and creates these interesting electric trails on the target as it sizzles. It's a great alternative as opposed to killing someone. It's not the volts that kill it's the amps. Stun guns are high voltage but only have .02 amps if I remember correctly.

    The shock stops your ability to use your muscles. Depends on the length of exposure and where applied. Along with the voltage. You will be dropped no doubt. I personally had a friend try mine on me. That way in case of trouble I knew the extent of disabilty. Would not advise anyone to do the same however.

    Although the volts are high it is the amps that kill you. Tasers and/or stun guns have high volts and very low amps. It will make you dance and cause pain but it won't kill you.

    You body's electrical system becomes short circuited, and this is why in some cases, people die from these devices used on them.

    it depends on the amparage, amps = volts/resistance if you know the resitance you can find the amps. amps is what kills people. ps amps is the amount of current.

    Gives him the hee-bee- geebies. And stops the person in his tracks.
