    1st review

    Through the years I carried the Side - handle baton over the straight stick baton. However with the change in department policy I have found that the ASP baton does the same thing when needed. Its better for the officer safety aspect when it comes to gaining access to it. Great impact weapon to have on your side.

    Awesome "non-leathal" tool.....having this weapon has saved a few lives because I didn't feel the need to draw my weapon against an individual armed with a bat, tire tool and a brick.

    I stronly agree with the psychological deterrence. I have extended my ASP one time in self-defense. The bad guy saw it, screamed and took off running. Excellent to break glass when neccessary.

    I bought my ASP in 1989. I live in PA, and no one even used it or ehard of it here back then. I had read about it in Law & Order magazine, and I had to have one. And its great for plain clothes, as it is so easy to hide. However, I did hear off 2 instances where the baton cam apart when it was deployed. One I had read about that occured in a department in NY, and the other was a local deparment. The officer told me that his seargent deployed it by snapping it back into the air. When he did, the top portion became detached and went spinning into the air. Yikes! Remember the old Black Jacks? They were great for some close and personal counseling!

    This is what I carry on duty, and altough it never seems to go back in once its out (sometimes good, sometimes bad) i have never had a problem expanding it the 2 times Ive needed it, great all around, and it makes it gives you an extra 2 feet from the suspect if needed if you choose not to spray for some reason.

    I have had this baton for almost a year now. This is probably one of the smoothest batons I have ever handled. As long as it is maintained (make sure you dry it after a downpour) this baton will last you for quite sometime. It makes a distinct click, to me, that really grabs one's attention. Like my firearm this is one weapon I would not leave home without.

    You cant go wrong with this, its inexpensive and does the job. Now I have heard that the lack of weight makes it ineffective on certain people. In that sense, you have to change tactics. I have also heard of people bending them when closing them, also has yet to happen. All and all, its been a great tool for any private Security Officer or Law Enforcement officer

He was B/M 6'6 with tri-state warrants that I did not know of.Outcome I tossed it down and pulled out my pistol,at which time he tried to take that away. He fled he crashed he was caught.
