Yeah, I picked up a monadnock used to try it out. Better than having nothing in certain scenarios.
My only previous definition for "monadnock" was Mount Monadnock in southern New Hampshire.
A monadnock is a prominent hill sitting above a plain, and its granite resisted it being ground down by glacial till, so it stands by itself without hills nearby.

In this case,Monadnock is the maker of a police baton known as model PR-24. The joke is that the PR stands for "Public Relations", and it's 24" long.

Tonight at Academy, I looked over a Smith and Wesson collapsible baton, 16" when fully extended. It comes with a belt holster which will hold it fully retracted. The price was $39.99 and they had several in stock.

The link above allows you to shop for higher end batons, which are priced 3x to 4x the price of the Smith and Wesson. I expect that they must be quite stong, in order to justify their higher price.

The worst government is also the most moral.
One composed of cynics is often very tolerant and humane.
But when fanatics are on top there is no limit to oppression.

I actually picked up the 21" S&W tonight on my way home from a meeting. I'll bring it with me to breakfast on saturday so you can check it out.

Where did you pick up a 21" S & W? Bricks and mortar, or over the web?

Price, I'm guessing, was about $49.99?
