Any weapon is a balance; expandable batons are, by definition, not as solid as a hickory stick or other solid stick. But you can carry it around a whole lot easier than a straight stick... Which means that it's got a much better chance of being with you when you need it, instead of strapped on top of your war bag. Within the expandables, you've got other tradeoffs, like you CAN thrust with an Autolock -- but you can't with an ASP or other friction lock baton.jks9199,
Thanks for those links. I do know about the autolocks, we have tested them to see if they would work well in our area of the four seasons. Our results were a mixed bag of pros and cons.
The bottom line is -- like so much -- you gotta find what'll work for you in your situation.
