    Recently, in the Houston area there have been two kidnappings, and both being women. One was kidnapped in Northwest Houston and found a day later with a gunshot to the head in a ditch. The other has been missing for about three weeks now and still no signs of her. My wife just recently asked me to get her a stun gun, and my question is it leagal for her to have a stun gun in her purse, and what other laws are out there in the state of Texas about stun guns. Anything, and any info would greatly appreciated.

    She should not have a problem unless she commits a crime with it.Contact your local LEO office and ask about the laws.My wife carried one until she got her CCL.

    Robbo,
    Not to be disresprectful, but one shot gadget or a gun with 5+ shots. . . . . . .

    Actually you can get the kind that fires projectiles now. After 1 shot you are down to "drive-stun" only. That means touching them with the taser. So you'd be within arms length of the BG. The ones I've seen are about $350. But they aren't magic wands, You still have to make a good hit on the BG.

    I agree with TX42, might aught to go with a firearm. You can practice more realistically with a handgun.

    Stun Guns are a great Less than Lethal weapon for Law Enforcement (What happens after she stuns him what if she misses what if there are multiple assailants what if it doesnt make good contact) keep in mind Cops haven't abandoned there firearms for stun guns for a good reason. Just go the extra mile and a CHL and her a nice little 380 or something to that effect. Heaven forbid something happened but if it did you will be very thankful she has a heater to protect herself

    If you read my post, the stun gun is for my wife. She does not like any kind of gun in any way shape or form. In fact she doesn't like to look at guns and was never exposed to guns except one of my handguns. She would rather let me have the guns and shoot them.

    Sorry, but what is the difference between a Taser and a stun gun?

    This would be a great excuse to slowly expose your wife to guns. Most people who do not like "to look at guns" have many irrational fears about guns. All I can say is good luck.

    My wife is not " most people". She was never exposed to gun as a child growing up in the Philippines. I had alreadey asked her if she want to get her chl and al she said is that she wanted a stun gun instead.
