I carry a knife but it is more for work than anything else. But I don't like to discriminate so I would use just about anything I could get my hands on

I carry a knife with thumbstud whenever I'm going anywhere it's legal to have a knife, and have carried a boomstick when going scuba diving in areas where a shark may want me.

Get ya one of these T-shirts and wear it around. Works just as well as that suit of armor...and is much, much lighter!

Nobody will even bother you...

Jack, while I luv you like a brother, I am going to have to boycott your shirt because NO ONE needs to be doing the HEINZ family any favors.

Need I say more??

I don't carry anything special (other than the mandatory redneck lockblade clip-on), but i wear bigass shoes and would not be above smacking you silly with one or throwing one.

I carried a 30" ASP for a long time, but when I needed it the friction lock would fail after a couple of strikes and I would have one section of the telescopic sliding around. Then I was left with a useless tool I couldn't put down, couldn't really put away and to re-extend it, it had to be fully collapsed first. After that happened a couple of times, I put it back in the locker and got out our department issued 34" straight stick. Those worked every time, but were not convenient due to their size.

Our department at one point had the option for the deadblow baton, but after excessive force lawsuits and way too many serious injuries they dropped them. Those really worked, but they broke every bone they struck, even if the officer was not swinging hard.

If you are asking for personal carry make sure you check your laws. In CA it is a felony to carry an impact weapon and then another felony if you use it (unjustified of course).

I am no longer concerned about disparity of force- I will ignore you unless you need shooting. I am not here to play, spar, or fence with a miscreant. My impact weapon now uses smokeless powder.
C3 I just love the way in which you reply. Straight to the point and humorous.

When you say deadblow baton are you talking about the PR24? My old man was good with one of those.
