Police Impact Weapons
If you have experience with an interesting piece of police gear, add a short police article here and we'll recognize you in our Bragging Rights section.
Police impact weapons have evolved tremendously from the early billy club to precision engineered telescopic batons. Some of these key pieces of police gear are derived directly from ancient martial arts weaponry. For example, the police side handle baton and the nunchaku (nunchucks) are straight out of any kung-fu movie that's worth watching. Over time, certain police impact weapons have come and gone for various reasons. Most of the control devices have faded out of the modern police officer's gear arsenal for reasons of non-political correctness. Interestingly enough, one of the most effective police impact weapons, the leather sap, is also one of the oldest and most simplistic of police defensive weapons.
