According to police acquaintances of mine, stun guns work relatively well on normal sober people who are not high on drugs or extremely hyped up on
However, if a suspect is high on drugs, or extremely hyped up on adrenaline with superoxygenated blood, they will laugh at a stun gun. (Under those
conditions, a suspect would be very dangerous, and most stun guns are contact weapons)
Even the dart projectile stun guns only have a range of 7 meters... what if you suspect is just a footstep outside that range?
