    Baton realted roll call story as soon as I get around to typing it.

    Excellent. Will look forward to it! The pool cue jab was always a favorite. Whether with a Koga stick, PR or a SL-20. I wear a 38 inch sleeve so I get plenty oomph behind it "OOMPH being the sound you hear when you make the jab" LOLz

    I need to replace my SL20 (aluminum body, high output incandescent, low output LEDs) since it went TU a while back. The poly bodied lights suck. LED/rechargeable Maglight is in the running, but I keep finding other shiny things to take my uniform allowance, since I have so many other lights to use. Next year's uniform allowance is going to a suppressor for my patrol rifle.

    I've got a stack of broken Autolocks in a locker. They break. We replace them with Peacekeepers.

    Getting back to the actual uniforms, I don't think the regional nature can be over-stated. For eastern city/suburban types, the dark blue wool/poly uniform with bus-driver style hat is the traditional. Out west things are different- I went to a training with a Wyoming game warden and their tradition was much more practical for what they do, plus it seems culturally acceptable for the region:

    I'll have to check them out. We have ASPs and they suck.

    Reading their website, if I have to replace my AutoLock the Peacekeeper is the replacement. Their opening instruction also fits my roll call story....

    The Peacekeeper RCB baton truly is the Almightys Rod of Correction. They are essentially a collapsible steel pipe...with all that implies. Very heavy to carry....but when you absolutely positively have to break something right now....

    According to their site, the RCB weighs about 1 oz per inch. Does this sound accurate to you?

    The Peacekeepers aren't that much heavier. They simply shift the weight forward. If you're carrying a worthless (aka airweight) baton then the difference is going to be more significant.

    Per my kitchen scale:
    26" Monadnock Auto Lock with "mushroom" cap - 26.7 oz
    26" Peacekeep with "combo" cap - 27.8 oz

    That is almost no weight difference for a huge bump in performance.
