I'm looking for another less-than-lethal force alternative to just oc spray or a kubaton when I venture into areas that prohibit ccw. According to VA Code 18.2.308 (the section on concealed weapons) a spring stick is a stick that has a rapidly telescoping body that releases at the push of a button and rises with a spring. If ASP expandables are manual (i.e. you have to use a wrist/arm flick to get it out) wouldn't they be legal to carry in VA.
Any LEOs have a clue . . .
