This nasty little weapon could just get you out of a bad situation that you stumble into. When held properly, the Stinger aligns itself with the arm bones and its blunt nose becomes an effective power focus. A strike anywhere with the Stinger will bring instant pain to the bad guy.
This disrupts his thought process taking his focus off of you and putting it on himself. This is your queue to run the other way and get out of there. Striking some one with a natural body movement and focusing to such a small area as the tip of the Stinger causes immense pain.
This is an outstanding design that is not only small and unobtrusive, but it also produces effective results.
The Stinger can also be used in healing arts such as acupressure.
