drive stun
 n.— «The gun looks like a water pistol so it can’t be mistaken for a firearm, Higgins said. A battery powering a microphone and camera linked to a built-in computer chip snap into the handle so that any use of the gun can be captured in multimedia. Two fine copper strands that can stretch 21 feet are coiled in a cartridge that snaps onto the tip of the gun’s barrel. The wires connect to two electrodes that can be used directly on the skin of the person being shocked. That’s called a “drive stun,” Higgins said.» —“Tasers join arsenal” by Christopher Williams Sun Journal (Lewiston, Maine) June 14, 2007. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
