Is this the extendable baton ?

I know my mate bought one a few years ago from a military store, and I was looking to get one a few months ago (when out walking the dog at night, there have been lots of robberies of people walking pedigree staffordshire bull terriers) - but I found that they are illegal now !

I could only find 1 site in the UK that would sell them, I'll try see if I bookmarked it..........

these are now illegal to sell in the UK. You're lucky if you find someone that does. Its also illegal to GIVE yours to someone else. Heh.

Apparently the streets are so safe in the UK, nobody needs self defence items. Except the police. Who have tasers, pepper spray, extendable steel batons, handcuffs and always travel in pairs. But don't worry. You're safe.

Here you go - some info...

Regrettably as of June 2004 these items have been made illegal to Buy, Sell or give away. As far as we can tell it is still legal to own them but not to carry them in public.

ps - try an Army surpless store, a few of these still stock them, but you may need to ask for them as they may not be on display !
#8
Try the internet, there are alot of stores abroad that sell and post out to the uk, with various loopholes in the law etc. They sell illegal knives, swords, whips, batons etc. Not that I'd know anything about that, otherwise its upto the people you know, yet again not that I know about that or endorse it in anyway lol

All the UK sites seem locked down....

[COLOR=#ff0000]*Only available to Military and Police Personnel*[COLOR=#000000]
Please enter the full address details of the Barracks or Police Station this item will be delivered to in the requirements box at checkout along with Rank and Number[/COLOR][/COLOR]

Hi Guys Any Good News For Me?

if you hit anyone with one of these you are in big trouble,even having one on your person is probably classed as an offence i would suggest you get a large aluminium style mag light they are very handy when filled with the relavant batteries.A case was heard where a guy was set upon while walking his dog and the mugger was hurt and took the poor guy to court as he had decked him with a maglight the magistrate ruled that it was a torch not a weapon case dismissed.

Much better idea, the Maglite D-Cell and Rechargeable models make great weapons!

Im buying one for my camping trip this summer, was taking my compound bow too (never know when it might come in usefull) but apparantly we're not allowed them on planes anymore... :x

I doubt he ruled it was not a weapon... Yet again my law knowledge dates back like 2years but...

You can not carry an object for self defence, however if you find the need to defend yourself you can grab a to hand object.

Therefore a person who carries a baseball bat incase they get attacked can be taken to court and charged, but someone who is walking to a baseball match in the field who when he is attacked grabs it as the first thing to hand (and uses reasonable force) will not be charged.

This is one of the mainy reasons why I and friends have been allowed by law to carry knives as they are necessary equipment out the stable yard, or incase of my ex it was needed safety equipment for when kiting.

Can we pull this thread - seems rather pointless....?

Hi everyone, I got my baton from these guys they are great and I got one just this week to replace the one I lost last week, they are the same as the police issue ones and cost 35 of your english pounds, I live in devon uk so its easy to get them and only takes 3 days to get them delivered to your door... I never leave home without one and believe me if you meet me on the way home in a dark alley with the intention of doing me some sort of ill by the time I finish showing you how I use my baton you wont be able to remember where you were when the ambalance arrived let alone who did this to you, as for suing me, I am hardly going to give you my credentials after giving you a hands on baton lesson... try to use violence towards me and be prepared to recieve no quater, I walk in peace and will defend my right to peace...

Here is where to get yours from... http://www.protectionaids.co.uk/21-inch-telescopic-baton--black-2-p.asp
