Smith And Wesson Collapsible Baton Longer Range Self Defense

Share

In today’s blog post we’re talking about one of the best products you can use for long-range self-defense; the Smith and Wesson collapsible baton. We carry them in several sizes ranging from 16 inches up to 26 inches. The 16 inch model expands from 6.6 inches up to the full-length of 16 inches at the flick of a wrist. The 26 inch model expands from 9.7 inches.

These expanding batons present a formidable way to defend yourself in an assault, akin to carrying a baseball bat in your pocket or on your hip.

Batons made of wood were used hundreds of years ago by law-enforcement officers for crowd control and criminal apprehension. Batons are a time-tested way for civilian self-defense. They can be used as a striking or jabbing device and are an effective tool to keep an attacker away from you, longer range self-defense. In the hands of a properly trained civilian, a steel baton can quickly bring an assailant to his knees.

For the money they represent perhaps the best value in collapsible baton line. They all come with a lifetime warranty which speaks to the quality of the product.

Smith & Wesson quality batons are made with seamless alloy steel tubing and are some of the hardest and strongest in the industry. The grip is a raised texture rubber grip which gives you a firm hold in any weather condition. All of their batons come with a durable nylon holster for easy carrying in several tactical positions.

Batons-Types and Styles

Share

The origins of batons goes back to the mid-1800s. They are less than arm’s-length products that are made of wood, rubber, plastic or metal. According to Wikipedia they are “used for forced compliance and self-defense by law enforcement officers, correctional staff, security industry employees and military police.”

In today’s blog post we will discuss the various types of batons used by civilians for self-defense.

They basically fall into two categories: electrified and non-electrified. There are some subcategories in the non-electrified versions such as expandable and non-expandable.

Electrified Baton stun devices usually have a flashlight included with them which gives them added utility as a self-defense product. There is one model that has expanding capabilities and is an effective tool against dog attacks.

Non-electrified batons are either a fixed length or expanding. Some models go up to as much as 26 Inches when fully extended.

In the non-electrified category an unusual type is the kubotan or keychain baton which is a “close-quarters weapon with an attachment for a keychain.” It is 5.5 inches long and can appear to be an innocuous appendage to a keychain.

The best uses of this self-defense tool are as “a flailing weapon, to gain leverage on joints, wrist and fingers or as a pressure point weapon which can inflict submission-type pain when applied effectively.”

Most fixed length batons come up to two feet making it easier to handle.

Another example of non-electrified batons are fixed batons referring to the length of the baton.

Handles for these less-lethal self-defense weapons are made out of rubber, some of foam or wood.

Whatever model you get, they can be an effective self-defense weapon.

Batons have been around since the early 1800’s when “Billy” clubs were first invented. They have come a long way since then. Here are three different types of batons that are used today.

1.A Stun Baton can be either telescoping or expandable or fixed length with a variety of voltages for the stun device. The stun baton is not meant to be used as most batons for striking or jabbing. It is used exclusively as a stun device. Most stun batons have other features as well, such as a flashlight or an alarm.

2. Fixed Length Batons are a popular variety of baton too. They come in lengths of as little as 12 inches to as much as 31 inches. There is one variety of a fixed length baton called the kubaton that is generally about 5 1/2 inches long and can be carried on a keychain.

3. Expandable or Telescoping Batons come in different sizes. Most are about 11 inches long when closed and can go up to as high as 31 inches when opened.

The Telescoping Stun Baton is 2.5 million volts and extends out to almost two feet.

Ever since there have been police officers, one of the staples that they had on their utility belt was a device called the billy club. The billy club was a piece of wood usually close to 18 and 24 inches long used as a self-defense weapon mostly but occasionally as an offensive weapon. If you ever hit your knee on a bed post, you know the pain that can occur by striking a bone with a solid object.

Batons have been used for self-defense in one way or another for a long time. Can you remember the first time you picked up a stick to hit somebody? Some law enforcement officials call them RCB’s or rapid containment batons. They have been used by law enforcement officials for crowd control and criminal apprehension for a long time. The baton in the hands of a trained professional is a very effective weapon.

Our 16 inch Baton made of stainless steel comes in 21 and 26 inch models too. This Smith and Wesson baton has a raised textured rubber grip and includes a ballistic nylon holster.
