    Do you have a small ASP?(Goz, no need to reply!)

    I'm considering "downsizing" to a smaller ASP. I currently have the 26". Does anyone here have a small ASP and how do you like it?
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    KCnuke has the next step down from the 26". Might want to PM him.

    He seems to like it.

    We have the smaller ones and the larger ones. I carry the smaller one I was issued. I generally do like it, but I also use it closed more than open. It's more intimidating open (crowds when there is a group of us), but I have found it more effective closed, especially in confined areas like a car. If I can strike with the point on a muscle mass, or if need be, a joint or side of the head, I have their attention pretty quickly.

    I carry the 21" Airweight ASP. Never had to use it; it's mainly there in case I need to break glass or if the Taser malfunctions. It doesn't add nearly as much weight to the belt as the 26" steel model does.

    I think mine is 22". It also has the power tip on the end of it.
    I like it alot, it works out great for scratching your back too

    I use the 21, and it seems to work ok, given the limitations of an ASP.

    I would recommend you carry a 12 oz. can of whoop ass like me.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and

    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds

    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me

    It's all good until she starts telling you how cute it is.

    I've got a 16' with one of those no slip, ribbed for my pleasure, grips on the end. I like it. I do recommend a shiny finish for a shorter length. A little shine makes that dude look bigger than it realy is. I guess I've found a need for tricks to enhance the appearance of size. {Lowers head, sighs, and reluctantly posts confessing reply}

    We don't carry the ASP we carry the Monadnock 26 inch collapsible autolock baton w the power tip. But mine isn't on my belt right now cause the stupid plastic holder has broken again and I can't get another one right now so it's in my patrol bag.

    I'm debating the same thing for the same reasons, but I figure the day I take it off, is the day I'll need it! I was just wondering if the smaller ASP really made any noticable difference when you're wearing it.
