The ASP Expandable Baton as an Alternative Self-Defense Weapon
A baton is a self defense device that is most commonly used by law enforcement and military as a backup or alternative to using a firearm.
They come in different shapes and sizes, but the most popular are the expandable types that consist of 2 or 3 round cylinders that are retracted within the handle. When extended out you have a formidable weapon.
There are less expensive batons that are produced in Taiwan, Korea, Japan and India. But be warned that none of these items meet the specifications established by major federal law enforcement and military organizations.
Besides not meeting federal specifications, most of these batons are cumbersome and usually left in the car. It won't do you much good there.
The ASP Baton has a low profile and is carried either concealed with a shoulder holster, or on your belt with a sidebreak scabbard. The smaller types can even be carried in your pocket or purse.
You might make you wonder if the ASP Baton is safe, but it fact that hollow tubular weapons provide greater control with less tissue damage than other impact weapons. This has led to a decrease in excessive force claims since police department adopted the ASP Baton.
Another good reason the ASP is the best baton on the market today is because it has been tested by Federal Law Enforcement agencies and meets the seven basic criteria of less lethal weapons better than any other product on the market.
Before purchasing a baton, be sure to check with your local law enforcement departments on the local laws regarding batons. Some states have banned the baton unless you are an officer or security guard.
