    I am certified for an ASP and I carry an ASP 21" nightly at work as a bar bouncer. I also carry my Deftech MK-4 as well as cuffs and what not. I useally keep the baton at the 3:00 position under my arm as to conseal it as much as possible. I have only had to draw it from its holster once but never extend it. Once the 3 possible assialants saw that i had it they broke off presuit and ran.

    Thats another story in itself.

    I prefer the asp for its range and visual intimidation. I have taken a training class in asp defence and hope to never have to use it on anyone. I would prefer a tazer but my boss will not allow tasers at this time.
    I carry because I care.

    Sap is great weapon....however its not worth 5 to 10 (years) for carrying one, not to mention using one. To many dang liberals didnt like the brain trama they caused when applied correctly. So its a expandable batton for me, thankfully I'm issued a decent one that conceals well.

    I was told by a DISTRICT JUDGE that I was too damn BIG for a baton. If I hit an "average Joe" with a baton, it was a lawsuit waiting to happen! So if I ever get in a confrontation, I just hafta "man-handle" 'em and rough 'em up that way.

    Sucks being as big as a house!

    Because punching a man repeatedly in the head with your giant paws is much more humane than giving him one whack in the leg with an ASP.

    baton is my preferred choice. However they are not non-LE legal for carry in MI.

    Yeah, I guess. His theory was that because I am the size that I am (6'3"/350lbs) I would prolly never run across a guy "my size" on the street. They will "mostly" be of average size - 5'10"/195lbs - which MIGHT make sense...but then again, he sits behind the bench - not behind the badge!
