    Where can the TEK 8stunguns be purchased in my area 34698 Florida

  • Admin says:

    Mona, At this time we believe that the TEK-8 can only be purchased online. If you search for TEK-8 on google, you should be able to find a retailer that has one for sale.

    My neighbor brought a gun into our community for no reason except that she does not like me. She pointed at the gun and pointed at me as if to say this is for you. The Police Officer who is a friend of her friend did nothing but say she said it was a telephone. I had a witness and I am frightened. I own a stun gun & I feel I should be able to use it if necessary.
