These impact weapons are a rarity in law enforcement these days, with many agencies nationwide getting rid of them over the years in response to allegations of police brutality and lawsuits. Other large police departments concluded the weapons weren't effective and banned them in favor of batons.
Do you have a Wisconsin Concealed Carry License?
...there was an issue as to whether or not a "tire bob", or club had a tether. If it could not be knocked out of your hand was the concern, and defined it's purpose. Tethered, it could be considered a weapon in some states.
For the purpose of fighting, I want a tether. The club can be released allowing a free hand and still maintain retention of the club. boar out.
I would conceder any close encounter against the discipline of MA a bad idea. As far as clubs go, one would not be my first choice for hand to hand. A empty pistol is more easily controlled, and effective. Lets be careful out there, boar out.
