The C cell is as close to a baton as you can get in a torch.
Except its only a 325mm (12") long.

If they made a 6C Maglite i'd agree with you, but 4C is the biggest.

You can make a simple lanyard for a 4-6D Maglite by making a loop of paracord and threading it through itself around the handle. The head of the torch prevents it slipping off.

There you go!

That would be good with an aftermarket bulb. My 4D has a TerraLux 3LED bulb and takes it up to 700 lumens. Its almost too bright for indoors work as the light shining off the walls is so bright it leaves a 'light burn' on my own vision for a split second.

I reckon a 5D with a lanyard or one of those 6Cs and around 300-400 lumens would be perfect.

Flashlight, I use an surefire defenderbut still like to think the best impact is a buttstroke of a shotgun lol. To be honest though a flashlight is what I reach for first. The power that white light has on an unexpecting person is amazing and I have a few years current training in filipino martial arts so impact weapons and knives come natural to me, plus, I dont muzzle sweep the kids when they just wanted a drink of water in the middle of the night

How about the "mini" bat replicas sold as souveniers at the ball games? They are hickory, approx 12-14in long, tapered construction, and one handed can raise pain levels.
You can wrap some para cord around the grip, drill a hole for a lanyard, and look like a toy! Ideas?

OK but first little history lesson I want you and others to see the true potential of what I'm about to reveal and why



A paintball gun is a 68cal airgun delivery system capable of propeling a 68 cal projectile up to 100+or- yards and very accurate up to200+or- feet, mostly use today by sport gammers playing war games with paint or powder filled projectiles, they are also used by our police, military and specail forces for training and less lethal aplications.

Those rubber coated glass projectiles or MB68P breaker balls @ 450fps have more kinetic energy per square inch than a bean bag round from a shot gun with 3 times the distance.
They are a solid 6.5 grams and/or 100 grain reusable projectile that can be used over and over again on soft targets.


you can learn more here in the forum by searching MB68P, lots of spred out info on the subject you can also do a ebay or google seach for types of ammo. Heres a good place to start

In my school you have to do your home work to be rewarded.

9 iron.

It's hard for the prosecutor to claim it was intended to be a lethal weapon. So there's an added bonus on the self defense claim right there.

and it takes nice divots..
