Taser vs Pepper Spray | Self Defense Weapons Tested! [WARNING] DON’T TRY THIS!


I’m not excited for this at all. Ahh! *coughs * Ahh! F$%#! Warning! These are weapons and not toys. They
should only be used in emergency situations. I really don’t want a phone call from your
mom telling me that you’re going around school electrocuting all your friends. The question we’re going to try to figure
out today is what’s better a stun gun or pepper spray for self defense. We went around
and tested a bunch of different stun guns Ahh! Ow! Ow! Your hair is burning. Ha it burned my- How about these? Ahh! What’s the strongest one you have? Ohhrgh! Oh god! That one hurt more? Yup. This one is 2 million volts and we found this
one to be the strongest. There are stronger ones, but they’re bigger and most people
just don’t carry it. There’s some on the internet that claim to be 12 or 18 million
volts and we’ve tried those, and they’re not that powerful. Ahh! Ahh! This is pepper spray by Smith and Wesson and
this is probably the most popular one that people carry. On a daily basis. Dylan’s gonna to put one dollar in each
pocket. We’re gonna try to take that money from him 3 times, one without a weapon, one
with a stun gun, one with pepper spray, and see which one is the best. No punching, that’s
the only thing. No striking each other. Yeah, we’re not gonna actually beat the
s$#* out of each other. No, ha no we’re not. Dylan how did that feel? Eh kinda sucked. It was a pretty good drop in the beginning.
Haha! I almost broke my thumb. Hahaha! The sound of that thing is terrifying. Dude it echoes through the trees, it’s just- Ha my heart is racing right now. Sup? Give us your two dollars now! Give us
your two dollars! Get him! Get him he’s on the ground! AHH! Get him get him get him! As soon as you got me in the stomach,
I no longer cared about getting your money anymore. Haha! There was a point when you were getting away,
you were just rolling, you didn’t get up and run! How much safer did you feel with that? A lot more! At first it’s like getting jumped,
but then when I turned around I could see you were both like, “okay… how do we do
this?” It’s scary! I was like, legitimately afraid
to grab you. So there is intimidation, but I mean, I got hit twice, and they both like,
stung, but they only last a second because I backed away. As soon as I back away- But you know like, if you actually tried to
grab onto him, you’re pretty much f*%#[email protected] You’re gonna, you’re gonna get the s*@#
tased out of you. He’s gonna try to stun me and I can hit
him back. So, we’ll see if we can get any stuns in. It’s easy to stun somebody if they’re
not expecting it, but if they’re trying to punch you back, it’s pretty tough to
get it in there. Ow! I see some red dots haha! That f#$&%@ hurt! It felt like a, like a million
volts! Haha! No it’s actually two million. Really? Haha! The second you get tasered by that thing,
you, you really, fight or flight instincts kick in and you just wanna get the hell away
from the person. Yeah! I mean, it definitely hurts. I do believe
that’s a pretty good defensive tool, but I wouldn’t call it and offensive, like you
can’t attack with it. But if someone jumps on you, you just have it right here and ready. The downside is that you do have to be within
arm’s reach of the person. Exactly, exactly. This is your basic, keychain pepper spray
that most average people buy. Why? Why did we think this was a good idea? Why are we pepper spraying each other? Can’t
we just get like fake pepper spray and say it was real? Pepper spray? I’m gonna f$&% you up! Kick your ass you
son of a [email protected]#%$! Let’s f$%^&* go b#%$&! Ahh! Come here you little- Ow! *coughs * Ahh! *coughing continues * How are you still? Give me a towel! Ahh! Are you not? Are you not crying? O man, dude I’m crying a lot. O dude…
My tear ducts are going insane. It’s not, immobilizing though. Really? I can’t, I mean can you open your
eyes? Ahh! Barely dude, but it hurts like- *Gurgling milk * Ahh! Ahh! Now it hurts! Ahh! AHH! Ha dude, I can’t, I don’t know how you
open your eyes right now, it hurts so bad. AHH GAH! I think it was all on my face and
I just washed it into my eyes dude. Dude it’s so bad dude! I’m gonna, open my eyes, alright? Ahh! Ahh! You’re just gonna pour milk on my face,
alright? Okay. Dude, dude this is stupid as f$%^ dude. It’s clean, it’s clean. Ahh dude! Burning, it feels like my eyes are on fire. My eyes are melting in my f#$^%*&… Haha! It was misting and it was missing my eyes
and kinda just going on my face, and it wasn’t until I actually washed my face that it went
in my eyes. I didn’t even get that close, I was going
towards him, I felt a couple drips go straight into my eye, as soon as that happened, like,
I was done. My eyes literally shut and I couldn’t, like I was trying to force my eyes open and
it wouldn’t. Can you pepper spray someone with sunglasses? Hey! Give me those cookies! Get away from me pervert, or else I’m going
to spray you with this pepper spray! O yeah? Well I got sunglasses! What are you
gonna do now? *Coughing * Hey get the towel. Ahh s%^&! Ahh f$&%! Ahh! Take the glasses off. Whatever you do, do
not, let it get in your eyes, don’t wipe your eyes right now. *coughs * Ahh! Ahh! This is a different part of the towel. Ahh! O your eyes are swelling up. Do you want to
sit down? Ahh! So I’d say that the sunglasses were not
effective. Stinging pain. Heheh. My face is like on fire. It’s like a stinging
fire on my face. Especially on my eyes. A little on my lips cause the first one kinda
got there. Uhh, yeah. God it’s like hot. Ahh f#$%! I knew that was going to happen. I was gonna, shock myself, but put your hand
on my shoulder and see if you get it too. Hah okay. Ahh! Nope, didn’t feel it haha! Really? Ahh f$#%! Yeah, that was intensely not fun. When it gets on your skin it feels like the
worst sunburn that you’ve probably ever had. It’s just like radiating burning f#$&^%
pain dude. It’s like, slowly absorbing into my skin all over my body. I might have to
get more milk, take a shower in some milk. A little bit over here, not as much. It’s
mainly- This is all Gene. Yeah, you came from that side. Obviously I was being a lot nicer to him.
The funniest thing is that we got injured on the one where he did not have a weapon. The taser is 1000 times more intimidating.
Like I think if you have one, there just gonna back away, cause that thing is scary. That would be what you would hope for. But if they don’t go away and they’re
not scared of it, it’s tougher than it looks to use I think. It’s also not immobilizing. Like, it hurts
while you’re getting tased, but, you’re not gonna sit there and be able to tase someone
ongoing while they’re trying to attack you. That just isn’t gonna happen. I think they only way to hold a taser against
someone like for four to five seconds, is to literally pin them down against something,
and then tase them, but at that point, you have full control over the other person, you
don’t need a taser! You should join UFC. One thing definitely to keep in mind is that
if they are carrying pepper spray, the first burst is going to be the most powerful. We
did a bunch of test sprays at the grass and we were trying to check it’s range and everything
before we did that test. So when you had it you were using a half used bottle and also
you were saying that you weren’t trying to go 100% spraying us right? Cause there’s
definitely points in the video where you were like this. Yeah. But you didn’t want to spray, you coulda
sprayed. Yeah you were just right there, and you were
even saying like, “spray me” and I was like, you sure? You want me to do it just,
right here? He’s nicer than the rest of us. So he wasn’t
trying to spray us too bad. You can take a taser gun and joke around and
taser your friends, but you’re never going to get pepper spray and jokingly pepper spray
each other, so- Yeah it’s like, really messed up. Did you think the sunglasses would protect
you against the pepper spray? You know I kinda did. Haha! Cause it’s like, well if you’re aiming
for my eyes, but my eyes are covered, like, it won’t work, right? So you now know, that if he’s got glasses
on, he’s still gonna go down. Yeah, haven’t you seen movies? All bad guys
wear sunglasses, even at night, they just show up and they’re creepy and have weird
hair cuts. Which one are you more afraid of? O definitely that one, get that away from
me, I’ll take this any day. Ahh! Ahh! You’re body jolts a little bit. Ahh! Haha! Ahh! Just as a disclaimer, these are not toys,
these are not something to be playing around with. The only time that these should be used,
if you feel like you need to defend yourself, or you’re fearing for your life. Yup, or if you’re just- Ahh! Ahh no! Just to clarify a few things, we use the word
“taser” a lot, but technically we were using stun guns. Actual tasers are the ones
that shoot out needles, they’re carried by law enforcement and they’re much more
effective. We haven’t tested tasers yet, but they’re not legal everywhere, they start
at $400 and they go up from there. They require more training, so I consider them to be in
its own class. Maybe we’ll test those one day. So after our testing, we concluded that
stun guns are 1000 times better than not carrying anything at all, but pepper spray still takes
the win for its size, effectiveness, ease of use and range. And don’t worry, no one
was hurt in the making of this video. At least, not super severely. The burglar from the 80s
is still alive and well.

  1. 9:50 is why I will never drink milk again. I may however start "jokingly" pepper spraying my friends.

  2. Thank you. You guys are great. I was thinking about stun gun, but not now. You guys have balls to go through that.

  3. I appreciate this video so much! I recently moved out by my self and I’ve been trying to find the perfect thing so carry just in case

  4. I just got pepper spray and a taser. Been carrying a knife for years and never had to use it. I will get a gun and carry all of them concealed. I pray I never will use any of them, but I won't be a victim of anyone. Only exemption is one on one, but those don't happen often.

  5. hahaha, i cannot stop laughing….. this reminds me of our Marine training in 2011, in front of the Royal Thai military. I was shot by a taser, that paralyzed me for about 10 secs and dropped frozen to the ground on the stage as a voluntold dummy. But this taser in the video is like a child's toy. It can barely stun a person. … Moving on to pepper spray… Cmon jet, mist…. really from a mist…. "WASTED" lol good one. We had long stream spray (like pee) to our forehead that drips to our eyes and maneuver to obstacles and still fights with a baton and does close combat. But of course, it's military or the Marine corps way. I'm laughing cuz I see how civilians react to these two non-lethal weapons. And i can relate to the pain. Pepper spray is worst, especially during summer time when your skin pores are open and absorb the capsicum liquid. And the taser created a bald spot on top of my head, it was that strong. Having both on hand for ladies can really be effective survival tools during an emergency situation.

  6. I LOVE this video and I am using it on my self defense ecommerce site https://www.freedomtodaysecurity.com Thanks so much guys for making this video! It's so helpful for people to know the truth about what is really effective 🙂

  7. 2,000000 Volts? Where did you read that claim ? Let me Guess.E bay. No such thing as a "2,000,000 million volt Tazer. The contact pins would need to be 12 Inches apart to prevent the destruction of the Impulse Transformer. E Bay is not in anyway a resource for facts.

  8. Thanks, besides funny this was very helpful , I decided to buy peper spray, was curious if it worked agaisnt glasses but you helped even with that!

  9. I have a pocket knife in my purse, stun gun in my house and pepper spray on my keychain, just in case I cant get to my knife quick enough

  10. That's why I carry pepper spray Sabre red I don't carry a taser just for this purpose thanks for the video awesome real life scenario👍👍

  11. The stopping power of pepper spray gives it an advantage over a stun gun. However, this was not a fair test IMO.

    The defender doesn’t ever use his natural weapons (live hand, feet, elbows, knees) in conjunction with the stun gun to maintain distance. He also never made a true effort to escape.

    A contact distance stun gun is not going to drop anyone. It’s a visual and psychological deterrent and a pain compliance device. It’s purpose is to dissuade an attacker from closing distance, period.

  12. Baton, flashlight, pepper spray, pocket knife and bulletproof vest sounds like my preferred (and legal) self-defence combo. I'm also contemplating cut resistant glovettes. But I wouldn't use a stun gun, since it requires the opponent to get to grappling distance, which, given the fact that it takes seconds before it kicks in, is really not something I want to do.

  13. You missed the element of surprise. Expecting to be shocked and getting zapped isn’t the same as not expecting to be zapped and being zapped. Only an idiot would activate a taser before the assailant is within striking distance. You strike when the person least expects it. Even better, pretend you dont see him until you are ready to deploy the taser.

  14. If I use a stun gun to defend against a black person while I’m wearing my MAGA hat would that make me a racist?

  15. Uhh, yeah, I carry "real" non-keychain police-type pepper spray, and it works fine.
    I also carry a real Taser, that will drop an assailant instantly And, I carry either a Beretta PX-4 Storm in .40, or a .380 PPK, AND my baby Beretta JetFire, .22 in my shirt pocket, or in my mini maglite holster. It's very small.

    First tell the assailant to go away, if they don't — pepper spray.
    On the off chance that that doesn't work, I use the Taser.
    I've never had to shoot anyone, which I see as a good thing, but having a continuum of force is vital to effective self defense.

  16. Not bad video.

    It is good that you made the correction in the definition between tazers and stun guns, but the entire tazer and stun-gun self-defense industry needs to be called out about the naming convention.

    They went forth with the official names, but it is so backwards!!

    Guns= Shoot.

    Tazers should be the one that "doesn't" shoot.

    Stun "Guns" as the name implies, ought to be the one that actually shoot/discharge.

  17. Instead of doing just one do both. If u pepper spray them first then taze them they have a chance at catching on fire.

  18. In Taiwan, we just happened, a murderer holding knife attacked the police which tried to stop him in train. The police was unarmed and he tried to disarm the murderer, but he was been heavy injured by knife. If the police have stun gun or pepper spray, the situation could be totally different.

  19. Ok so pepper spray is way more "incapacitating", but why doesn't the effect kick in fast enough?

  20. Real pepper spray ain’t no joke it’s serious It burns forever it take forever to wash off out but it is the best self defense weapon.

  21. Stun guns suck I made a stun gun suit touch me and and you get shocked lol.
    1 can of grizzly spray it will do the job no problem.

  22. It is not 200 million volts dumbass. If you believe that I have some bricks that are painted gold… I mean solid gold bricks to sell you.

  23. thank you for making this video. I'm 20 and have been sexually assaulted 3 times this month, during the day, by 3 different people. Trying to find a solution and this video was hugely helpful.

  24. Distance is king. Pepper spray gives you that ability. I also made a prior comment as to the stopping power of pepper spray (when it can be successfully deployed and used) also the modules are compact and highly concealable , but it has it's downsides too.
    The stun gun portion of the test loses some of its validity due to the fact that the defender didn't make an honest effort to escape; also the defender didn't use any techniques using his free hand ( punches, open hand strikes, elbows) nor did he use kicks. firing the stun charge towards the attackers face as a distraction is a perfect set up for low line kicks.

    Each device has its advantages and drawbacks if used properly.

  25. … Of course they ARE toys… It all dependes on the kinda fun you're having.! Therefore… LIVE a little and TRY to have some laughs… Even if IT has to "schock" your buddy's to kingdom come & back… Never walk away from some fun-things.! trust me…

  26. I can't believe I watched this video but I did and I have to say, you guys are really good. You are funny! I subbed for no reason other than you guys are cool and I want to see more : )

  27. The only good thing a stun gun is for is pranking your friends. A stun gun is not immobilizing at all, a taser is, but they cost more than an effective firearm. Regardless, I'm pretty sure in MA and NJ, owning either pepper spray or a stun gun will land you in prison.

  28. pepper spray is the best just be prepared to learn to get hit too. unless your running and you spray behind you, that will also get in your eye

  29. when i was in the military, a bunch of us got drunk and spray each other… worst 4 hours of my life. I had duty when everyone was puking…….. LLOONNGG TTIIIGHT

  30. i lough alot…. but is one of the best video . those guy are great :)) thank you so much . i will buy both just to be sure cause against 2 big african guys a while ago at my door trying to get in …probably i could not handle it easy ..hhhh
