StunMaster Showdown: The HotShot Stun Gun vs The Runt!

A lot of people are often concerned whether or not they will make a good choice when buying products in an industry they are not very familiar with. This either leads to them making mistakes, living a life of regret or not buying either of the products in the first place. When it comes to self-defense the last should not be an option as we all deserve to be safe and secure. So, today we will start a new series of posts where we will compare certain devices to each other to see what advantages/ disadvantages they come with. Today, we will compare the Runt Stun Gun against the The HostShot, both of which are products from Stun Master, a brand that is very popular when it comes to quality products for self-defense.

Runt Stun Guns VS The HotShot: The Design

The Runt VS TheHotshot Stun Master

 Design plays a very important role in any industry, and this is no exception. These two devices are quite similar, however, since they do come from the same manufacturer and possibly use the same system and technology. I honestly prefer the body of the HotShot stun gun as the curves on the edges provide a more comfortable and stronger grip. The HotShot also looks like an older BlackBerry phone device from a distance which can also be quite handy as it may give you the element of surprise. Both devices deliver their full power via the same mechanism as well. It is also worthy to note that there is a pink Runt stun gun model available for purchase!

 Also note that in spite of the image the Runt Stun Gun is 3.25 inches long, while the HotShot is only 3 inches long. The proportions on the photo above are a bit off.

Runt Stun Guns VS The HotShot: The Power

 Both of these devices can deliver approximately 4.5 million volts of power which is quite a lot and will greatly help you repel any attacker. However, there is a certain thing in this department that gives the Runt a slight advantage. Namely, the Runt Stun Gun is a rechargeable device, while the HotShot uses three (3) Lithium batteries (you will get three for free with your purchase however).

 In my honest opinion the Runt Stun Gun is a better choice here as you can charge it every day so that you can be 100% sure that it will be at full power if you need it to help you defend yourself. However, this is by no means the most important factor to judge these devices by.

Runt Stun Guns VS The HotShot: The Cost

 The costs of these two devices are practically the same. The Runt Stun Gun costs $49.95 and comes with the recharge function, 4.5 million volts of power and free heavy duty nylon holster. The Hotshot, on the other hand, costs $46.99 and does not have a built-in charger option so you will have to buy batteries from time to time. Upon purchase, however, three batteries will be included, as well as a stainless steel belt clip and a nylon holster.

So, who wins this comparison? Well, these two device provide the same quality and are made by the same brand with similar design mechanisms in mind. For me, the Runt Stun Gun has a slight advantage on paper, but all in all I believe that you will be satisfied with either of these two devices and there is no reason to regret not getting the other one.

 Finally, the question of the day is: which do you think is best? The Runt Stun Gun or the HotShot? Leave your answer in the comments below or send us a tweet @Your_Protection or a facebook comment on our official page.
