    Here's the applicable RCW. Interpret as you will:
    RCW 9.41.270

    (1) It shall be unlawful for any person to carry, exhibit, display, or draw any firearm, dagger, sword, knife or other cutting or stabbing instrument, club, or any other weapon apparently capable of producing bodily harm, in a manner, under circumstances, and at a time and place that either manifests an intent to intimidate another or that warrants alarm for the safety of other persons.

    (2) Any person violating the provisions of subsection (1) above shall be guilty of a gross misdemeanor. If any person is convicted of a violation of subsection (1) of this section, the person shall lose his or her concealed pistol license, if any. The court shall send notice of the revocation to the department of licensing, and the city, town, or county which issued the license.

    (3) Subsection (1) of this section shall not apply to or affect the following:

    (a) Any act committed by a person while in his or her place of abode or fixed place of business;

    -

    (c) Any person acting for the purpose of protecting himself or herself against the use of presently threatened unlawful force by another, or for the purpose of protecting another against the use of such unlawful force by a third person;

    Not sure about your State so be very careful. Back when I carried a badge in California, it was a felony to have a baton, whereas a handgun was a misdemeanor. Oh, I just read more carefully the response from 'CopperKnight' so there ya go...

    Ditto for us in OREGON... anybody know about ASP/Baton Carry rules/laws in Oregon... Just ordered one for HD, but I do like to go hiking and would like to take my baton with me.

    Knowledge is power.

    Thanks in advance from us in Oregon!
