Nice item—great service and fast shipping—Thanks.
Well designed, not overly bulky to wear and easy to pull from the holster, just hope I never have to use it.
I needed something to take with me when I walk my dog. Coyotes are frequently spotted in my neighborhood in broad daylight walking up and down the street at all times of the day and night. The 16” baton fits into my cargo pants pocket without a holder. I hope I never have to use it but at least I have something to defend me and my dog in case we run into some aggressive coyotes. I did practice deploying the baton and it opens quickly and easily by flicking it with the forearm and wrist. It is difficult to close but better that than it collapsing when you don’t want it to. It feels heavy enough not to break and let the attacker know you have a tool to fend him off if he gets hit with it. I would not want to suffer a blow from this baton!
I like this 'tool' for use inside of a car in the event of intruders while parked or stopped at intersections. I have experienced two major such problems in the past which were very dangerous. The 16" length is helpful and easier to use. Also, it can be easily folded into a pants' pocket for personal carry when needed. Thank you Smith-Wesson and Baton Warehouse.
This is a well made baton. Solid, feels good in my hand. Closes easier after a try of two.
