    I started a thread a few weeks ago on ASP's and I got mostly negative replies on them. Some saying they were nothing more than a flimsy excuse for a pipe.

    So what do you prefer for an effective impact weapon?

    Thanks

    I think my favorite impact weapon is a truck.

    That's more of a vehicle than a personal weapon....but I knew someone would throw it in.

    All we need now is a brick response...

    Because you can beat an assailant into a coma with it and carry it anywhere. And when properly executed, it is about as effective as an old-school sap.

    Also, for the doubters, just remember that water is incompressible...

    I was going to say a four pound sledge hammer but I think a four foot pipe is a bit kinder.

    3 or 4 D cell Maglite has a certain sense of style about it.

    Sap/slapper, spring loaded lead weight slap, tire checker (cut down baseball bat with a lead weight), galvanized pipe, 4D cell maglight, tire iron...

    Pick your poison. I've found a great number of things to make good impact weapons.

    400 grain .458 SOCOM. Makes a hell of an impact. :supergrin:

    But a foot long piece of 1" copper cable does a number too. And doesn't look out of place on the floor of a truck.

    Nada wrong with a properly used ASP, millions of criminals can't all be wrong. I've personally used them in action and they work, IF used properly.

    It is not the caliber but the shot placement, it is not the impact tool but the strike placement. I know that is over simplifying it, but it is more true than not.
