Always good for really obtrusive door to door salespeople. Usually only takes one whack.

Hm. I was trained to use a 30” baton when I stood Shore Patrol duty in the US Navy. What the Marines didn’t teach in their (admittedly) short class, I learned on patrol. Kind of weird going into town looking for trouble, when I consider that on the off days, I was the trouble. :shrug:

Nicely turned. To be more affective as a weapon it needs to be hollowed out and filled with lead.

I would caution here that in some states a “billy club” is illegal. In California (many years ago) I arrested a couple of miscreants myself for carrying one. So call it a fish wacker that you use to kill large fish if you are ever asked, but don’t carry it on your person, concealed or otherwise. They also work well for humanely knocking rabbits out before I butcher them. For those interested here is a chart on states laws: http://weaponlaws.wikidot.com/state-baton-laws

Just confess, it’s for slimy bastards!

Won’t comment on the filthy looks I got when I tried to conceal it.
