Hey all, I am wondering what you all would rather have for next to the bed. I have a few shotguns at home in nj but I am stationed in ms right now and don't feel like buying another gun right now. I do plan on getting a pistol in the future but not just yet. All I really need is a blunt object and truthfully a 4c-6c mag light would probably work but I am thinking about a cold steel Brooklyn crusher. Last forever, good weight and decent length, may be to long for indoors but my current apartment has room for swinging it. Second option is a expandable baton. A 21-26inch would work well. Less hitting power but still enough. I know the bat is the logical choice, I am even looking at fish bats(billy clubs). But the gear ho in me screams baton for the cool factor. And would be able to tuck it in a backpack when going on hikes. What do you all think?
