I Don't Think You Can Carry One In NV If Non LEO

I know that in Pennsylvania Expandable Baton carry by Non LEOs is a no~no.

I am Best Guessing that (See Below) an Expandable Baton would be prohibited in NV since it IS in effect a collapsible Billy Club which seems to be prohibited.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Nevada

Tough One

Maybe a 2 Ounce Fox Labs OC Spray & a City Stick By Cold Steel?:confused:


Hummmmmmm....but, then I'm wondering if Nevada Law could look sideways at The City Stick due to the way that it is marketed. ???

You could have a Lathe Turner/Woodworker in your area Lathe Turn you an ordinarly looking Ball knob walking stick in one of the following woods: (there are also other SUPER DENSE heavy exotic & HARD woods...but, here are a few)
Lignum Vitae ~ Bubinga ~ Ebony ~ Ash ~ Purpleheart ~ Tulipwood ~ Bloodwood

A big 6-C or 6-D cell Maglite is a good flashlight and you can carry it right out in the open when walking at night....and it's a flashlight, not an impact weapon. Meanwhile, it's tough enough to definitely hit "something."
An ASP baton is useful (at least once in my experience) in that when you snap it open, it's a deterrent to someone who didn't really want an altercation in the first place.
These days, I just walk away if at all possible, but I do have some Fox spray....

Cold Steel also offers a wood version of the City Stick and I think it's called the Walkabout. I have one and it is great.

It really bugs me that in TN a telescoping baton is illegal for civilians. It seems especially illogical that I can be trusted to carry a handgun but not a baton.

Well, you can inflict more serious injuries (excluding death) with a baton. Leaving them "broken on the wheel" so to speak........:blink:

Yeah, I know batons are a potential deadly weapon; so is a walking stick. I can legally carry one, but not the other. And, round(s) through the liver, kidney, kneecap, etc. is pretty serious not to mention the danger of a misplaced round(s) to bystanders.

A while back I picked up a ASP (26") from an LEO that had got it by mistake. Think he said that it was too long. In Fla.they are legal for a CWP holder to own/carry.
The only time that I carry it is when I'm out walking off supper, in the late afternoom.
We have dogs in our area that run together from neighborhood to neighborhood.
I would much rather whack one with the ASP than have to shoot it.
The ASP slips down into a 12" length of plastic pipe that has a screw on cap on one end and a friction cap on the other.
I have been told by LEO's that this method of carry fits the guidelines of "concealed" as per Fla. statutes.
I have no official training with the ASP but have been shown several moves, holds, locks, and striking methods by an ex LEO.
That is fine with me. If needed I can revert "back" to my primary.--------

We are lucky we are allowed to carry them. And I never leave home without my small snapout baton.

It's my first choice when deadly force is not a threat. Nothing like a damn good wacking with a hard steel baton to slow down some stupid person trying to pull off something on you.

I carry my ASP baton almost everyday i've got 2 ASP baton the 16 inch and 21 inch baton. These batons are easy to conceal and easy to open when you need it.:smile:

Tangle, telescoping batons are not illegal in TN, but you do have to be certified in order to legally carry one. I'm ASP certified. It may be difficult finding an instructor, but they're out there. Mine was a cop.

For the truck nothing beats a 6 C-cell maglight. Better hitting than my 26" ASP ever thought of, and it's not a "weapon" by design.
Sorry but I have to take issue with the mag light comments. Maybe you didnt hear about the three Phily cops (and a string of others) who are now convicted felons for using maglights as defensive/offensive weapons. There is a reason most agencies do not issue the steel lights anymore. Most issue plastic lights or the smaller ones.

I'll back the OC and martials arts training (Brizilian Jiu-Jitsu is my recommended style) but I would never recommend anyone using a flashlight for anything less than a deadly force situation.
