    Probably more so than a knife.
    It reaches farther, requires little skill, and can instantly turn off an opponents ability to do anything other than swallow their teeth.
    I'm with you. I'd prefer a bat over a knife in most cases I can envision.

    Never bring a knife to a bat fight?

    If the red dot from the laser does not make him put the bat down and leave me alone, what follows will, a baseball bat could do more damage than i would like to sustain.


    I am not as fast as I once was, and my eyes are a little worse , thereforeI have attached a laser to my gun.

    If there were no keys in the car so that I could move over and drive away, I'd wait to see how intent this random guy was at getting to me. Maybe he's just mad at the world and is slamming the vehicle. It would most likely take a few blows to get thru a window. I'd see if he followed over to the driver side and started after me on that side.

    Meanwhile.....I'll have called 911.

    If it appears he'll get thru a window so that he can actually harm me, I'll get out and try to keep the car between us, hollaring for help. I'm not going to run and lose the only cover I have...I dont know how fast he is. (Altho it's possible that there's a business near enough that I could run into).

    Gun will be drawn and warning shouted. Unless he's extremely hyped up on drugs or I trip, a single guy shouldnt be able to get around the car to get to me (a married one, maybe...arr arr). Hopefully help will come. If it doesnt and he gets the advantage on me, I'll shoot COM.



    Someone mentioned pepper spray. At first, it seemed too dangerous to get that close to use it (when they could still lunge at you with the bat), but it may very well be possible to use it across the top of the car....something to consider.
    Fortune favors the bold.

    The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)

    One swing of a bat can take a persons life. So I would have to say had that been me that guy would have been a split second away from losing his life

    I would definitely answer a swinging bat with a couple of shots, one swing is all it takes to kill

    This is an interesting issue for discussion of theory and fun. I know what you mean, yet I am far more practiced at knife defense and disarms; I've practiced plenty against sticks and short pipes, but there is something about that fat end of a bat that is deeply deeply scary. You can avoid damage by getting in so as to defeat the momentum, but if you time it wrong your brains will be instantly splattered. Your chance of surviving a bad cut to an arm is probably better than your chance of surviving a good bean by a bat.
    If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

    I honestly can't believe some of the responses to this thread, and the only thing I can think of is that you all haven't played baseball or ever swung a bat before. With a metal bat I'd say it's 50:50 that i could break the passenger window and strike your head in one blow. 100% that I can break the passenger window and your skull in two blows.

    As soon as strike 1 occurs on the front window I am giving two center mass and aiming high just in case.

    A baseball bat is second in my mind of personal deadly weapons only behind someone who knows how to fire a firearm.

    Sheesh, a few of you all could be dead or severely injured if you do not intend to draw and use your firearm immediately against this deadly, deadly threat.

    I think it took just one swing of the bat from the Bear Jew in Inglorious ******** (powerful movie clip) to mess up his mellon. The rest just finished him off.
