Expandable Batons For Self Defense
Have you had a chance to read about self defense on Security Wizard's Home Page? If not, that's okay - we're going to revisit some similar conversations there when it comes to choosing the best weapons for personal self defense. The highlight here, of course, is a collapsible baton, and why it should be one of your top choices for a self defense weapon.
When considering what is the best self defense weapon for your needs, it's hard to overlook the collapsible baton and all its advantages. Let's talk about size: when stored away, even a larger baton takes up minimal space in a bag or concealed holding case. The smaller expandable batons can even fit inside normal pants pockets and remain concealed without causing mass restriction to movement. When needed, the self defense weapon can easily be gotten to, and drawn out with a simple snap of the wrist. All our retractable batons are made from high grade, lightweight steel or aluminum alloy. The size and weighting are a perfect combination for a balanced self defense weapon.
If you think that the flipping/clinking sound of a butterfly knife is intimidating and deterring to others around you, just wait until you hear the loud, crisp crack of a collapsible baton extending open. Sound might seem like a trivial matter, but when it comes to intimidation, the speedy "snap" of a collapsible baton opening up is generally more than enough to make assailants reconsider messing with you.
Crime statistics have frequently shown that the majority of criminals and crimes occur impulsively, and had these perpetrators simply thought five minutes into the future, they would have not committed their crimes. We therefore encourage people to turn that impulsive nature around against the attacker. Often times, this can be accomplished through the intimidating sound of a collapsible baton extending itself open quicker than your assailant's eyes can process what's happening.
First, you were standing there, and before they knew what happened, there was a loud, powerful "crack!" and without warning, you're chambered back to hit them with a baton that seemed to have come from thin air. Many attackers will turn and run.
Even if you are not skilled at using a baton, the weapon is so incredibly basic to use that it makes an excellent means for self defense in anyone's hands. The key is to stay compact and keep your arms crescent shaped (properly bent) - even when swinging. Set the baton into motion using the momentum from your legs and the turning of your hips, and then let your bent arms follow through with the momentum without ever over extending.
By staying compact, the baton is always close to your body, thus, offering both fast and easy defense and offense movements. The light weight of a collapsible baton makes it fast for swinging, and it's easy to aim and parry with. However, due to the physics behind the weapon, significant force is delivered into the tip of the baton when swung, making it deal out powerful muscle crippling and bone breaking strikes. If you're being attacked by someone with a knife, a collapsible baton provides you the room to still strike from a further distance where you're much less likely to be harmed by your assailant's blade.
Unlike swinging a chain or a bat, the baton will not wear you out quickly, and energy is incredibly important to have in self defense situations.
Some self defense weapons have very specific targets and, likewise, so is the damage that they generate. Knives, for example, cut and stab, and are unmistakably perceived as a lethal weapon in a court of law. If you must defend yourself with a weapon like this, it's going to be up close and personal, and even if you didn't mean to cause lethal harm to your attacker, a knife is much harder to control, mostly because you cannot control what your opponent is going to do. It could be the case that they accidentally impale themselves on your knife or sever a major bleeding artery. Such a scenario will not end well for you in court or rest easy on your conscious in the years to come.
Retractable batons, however, can be versatile and accurately used on a number of targets for different affects. If you wish to merely stun an opponent, then lay a strike across a major muscle group like a lat, quad, forearm, or glute. If the situation is serious, but still still not requiring a lethal head blow, a collapsible baton is extremely effective at quickly breaking ribs, hand bones, arm bones, and leg bones.
The weapon can also be used to parry with, hilt-strike with (without ever extending), and you can even execute blood and air chokes with if you're familiar with grappling techniques. You simply don't have this much versatility with any other self defense weapon on the market besides a collapsible baton.
A Variety of Expandable Batons
Security Wizard offers a wide selection of
for purchase. Not only do they come in different lengths and sizes, but many are equipped with additional features like a stun
gun feature, LED lights, DNA catchers, and pocket-sized baton keychains.
As if a baton wasn't enough - can you imagine adding the power to stun your opponent, too? Police use
in and outside of prisons during riots. It allows them to not have to hit their targets as hard which does less physical damage, but more incapacitation. The powerful electrical watts can, in some cases, knock someone out cold, but generally, it momentarily cripples the muscles it makes contact with which is very convenient for disarming an attacker with a weapon.
are extremely bright and, besides being used to light up a dark corridor, they can temporarily blind or disorient your attacker, even in broad daylight when shined into their eyes. For these reasons, you can get LED lights on your collapsible baton. If you want to slow your opponent down or bait them to bring their hands/arms up to protect their eyes from the LED's light, it gives you the openings to strike elsewhere, lessening your chances of harm and injury.
Have you ever heard of a
on a baton before? This is a fancy name the manufacturers and marketers have given to a sharp, jagged, metal crown that sits fixed on the hilt of a baton. Make no mistake, this is no Jr. forensic lab feature - it's like the spikes on a
that are used to open someone up with bludgeon force at very close range. It's guaranteed to leave its teeth marks on your opponent and collect their blood, should you need it.
Do remember that if you report your collected specimen to the police while it's on your "DNA catcher," then you're probably going to lose the baton and possibly get into trouble. Apart from effectively collecting blood, the DNA catcher is also a fabulous window breaker, so if you ever need to get out of a rolled car or something like that, and you have your trusty collapsable baton equipped with a trusty DNA catcher, then you can easily punch out a sheet of class with the jagged hilt.
You've heard the saying "it's not the size that counts, it's how you use it," right? Well, this is especially true when it comes to
keychain retractable batons
. They are small enough to fit into your pockets, and when needed, they can be drawn out and used like their full-sized siblings. Granted, they are not nearly as powerful, but they are still stronger than most unarmed attacks, and they pack that deterring factor that all retractable batons bring with them.
You really cannot beat the price for such a great concealed weapon that doesn't draw attention to itself.
With such a wide variety of expandable batons to choose from, it's important to consider how you want to carry this self defense weapon in order to have the quickest and safest access when needed. Even a 32.5 inch baton (that's its fully extended length) can fit collapsed in a carrying case or a backpack pocket. However, if you don't want anyone to see your baton in open view, you'll want to consider something smaller that can be concealed away in a pocket, or rest within your waistline without greatly impeding your movement.
Laws Around Batons
The phrase "it was self defense" will not always protect you in a court of law when you use a less-than-lethal weapon against an attacker and cause substantial damage to them. A collapsible baton (as versatile as it is) is sometimes viewed by police officers as a deadly and dangerous weapon - especially if you went hitting folks in the head with it.
In short, police and law makers really don't like civilians arming themselves and taking matters into their own hands. This even includes cases of having to protect one's self from immediate harm when police are not around to help you. Our view is that you're buying a self defense weapon to protect yourself, right? It's not something you're going to brandish and irresponsibly threaten people with.
These weapons are used as a last resort when things get ugly, and if you're thinking in those terms in a real situation, the thought of later being buried in litigation is the least of your worries. You just want to survive the situation. You still should to be aware of your state laws if you're going to carry a self defense weapon like a collapsible baton on your person.
If this weapon is completely outlawed, but you're going to carry it anyway, just know that having it in plain sight will probably get you in trouble with police long before you'll have to defend yourself from an assailant - and this includes accruing a hefty fine. Always be extremely careful where you carry a baton, making sure it's never seen unless you really have to use it. Also know that you could still get into legal trouble with it in a legitimate, justifiable self defense situation.
Lawmakers want to be reassured that you're not a hot-headed vigilante that's impulsively bringing a potentially lethal weapon into a non-lethal situation. If you can explain why you preemptively chose to buy a baton over other self defense weapons (like a gun or knife) in order to protect yourself without having to kill your attacker, it will greatly help your case, should the day come.
Likewise, so would taking a concealed carry weapons (CCW) class, even though it's strictly for concealed firearms. Getting CCW certified demonstrates that you've been trained to understand the differences between lethal and non-lethal situations, and that you can be trusted to responsibly carry and use weapons.
