All you regulars to Less Lethal Alternatives know that I like to review cool items and unique self-defense tools that are available to us in our everyday lives, if this is your first time to the blog then let me say welcome! I was recently cruising several sites and channels on the infinite expanse of the internet and came across an item worthy of mention. At first glance the Scorpion 200 looks like your average everyday touch stun gun, but this clever device packs a one two punch that you might not see coming. As many of you know stun guns typically work via pain compliance, that is the target being stunned is deterred from attacking due to the pain delivered from a stun gun. However, one of the draw backs of a touch stun device or drive stun device is that you actually need to be close enough to make physical contact with a potential threat. This is one reason why projectile stun guns such as the Taser and Phazzer devices are preferable because they allow you to engage a target from fifteen plus feet away. The Scorpion 200 provides a similar advantage, although it does not project any electric stun darts. The Scorpion 200 is a self-defense multi-tool in that it provides the capabilities of 200,000 volts of stun power plus the blinding effects of pepper spray in one easy to use tool. The pepper spray can reach out to six feet and blind an attacker while the jolt of 200,000 volts will temporarily incapacitate and deter an attacker. This device is used by some European police agencies and manufactured in Eastern Europe. I have only been able to find this item for sale on a few U.S. based websites such as newedgegifts.com and expandablebatonsandmore.com it retails for about $100.00.
Kinda a cheesy video but it demonstrates the unit. See below.
