English term or phrase: high-voltage stun gun
The co-pilot had been maintaining perfect eye-contact, and no flicker gave away the fact that the engineer, who was positioned just to Jake’s side, had slid out a high-voltage stun gun and fired it into Jake’s ribs. Jake felt as though every nerve in his body was on fire as the current pulsed through him. The special issue stun gun would have felled a bear in seconds, no normal human stood a chance.
