This is the first baton for me. We travel in our motorhome and walking the dog one evening was nearly attacked by a large dog. This was originally purchased as a defensive weapon for another such occurrence. Baton is solid, has a good grip, feels significant in the hand, and locks in place solidly. It does take a significant force to retract which I suspect is a positive. It would be better for concealment if it could be and inch or two shorter but I’m not sure that’s possible with length. This is a good defensive substitute for states not allowing concealed carry with the permits I carry. As of now, I’m glad I choose this model.
And fast delivery. I'm a former deputy and it is as good as my carry baton.
I bought the baton to help protect us from agressive large size dogs in our neighborhood. I feel more comfortable as i take our dog, small 13 lb maltesse/poddle mix dog.
I love this because my friend with a 3 year old can have it and be safe without any danger to the child.
