    What are your thoughts?

    In particular steel vs aluminum?

    What size?

    What brand?

    Whatever else....

    Peacekeeper RCB, formerly known as Winchester, originally known as Wilmoth. Steel, heavier construction than ASP, most of the weight is in the top half so kinetic energy works for you. The only drawback is that it's heavier, and no one makes a holder for it that is as good as the ones that Monadnock makes for their batons and for ASPs.

    Hmm, I like that. I am reading up on it now. Bent an ASP and I have been told I can buy and carry anything I want now...I dont think I want an ASP...but I do want to hear what everyone thinks.

    I carry a 26" ASP. There is no particular reason for that, its just what I bought. Its a tool that I dont use very often, but when I have had to use it, it works like it is supposed to

    lawman800 Juris Glocktor

    Standard crap ASP in black with rubber grip, 26" of worthless steel.

    I went back to the good ole fashioned 29" straight Dymondwood. Gets a lot of attention, more than the gun or anything else for that matter. People come up, ask about the big whacking stick, and leave quiet and respectable.

    Saw a few dozen of these in our old store room a few weeks ago. Was told they can no longer be issued except in an emergency such as a riot.

    I would really like to have one.
