If anybody has ever watched the TV show Star Trek and has wondered what would happen if their phaser pistols failed to fire? Or in a sense, "run out of ammo." Did Mr. Spock forget to stick his phaser pistol on the charger the night before? Similarly, what would happen if you were walking down the street in the middle of the night with your stun gun in hand and forgot to test it before leaving the house earlier in the day? Did you forget to use a fresh battery or stick a rechargeable battery in the battery charger? It is the little things like this that can mean the difference between life and death especially if you find yourself in a place that could be dangerous to you. Whenever you leave the house, ALWAYS be concerned for your safety at all times.
Those of you who jog at night should consider carrying a self defense device such as a stun gun. Be sure that you test the stun gun to ensure that it is working properly so that you will be prepared in time of need. Always use a fresh alkaline battery for your stun gun, and consider changing the battery once every 6 months to maintain a fresh battery source. Don't use anything else but alkaline battery because some stun guns won't operate on a non-alkaline power source. Keep these things in mind before you go out at night where there is a possibility of muggers and rapists lurking in the shadows. Don't let a potential perpetrator get the upper hand on you.
Set your "phasers on stun!".
