    Default Maybe the wrong place, but what about a Suarez impact weapon?

    Not the NPE items like the Choirboy, but either a Suarez designed baton or sap/blackjack? I know a few great leather sap and blackjack makers and know very little of the expandable baton. Gabe, any interest in designing something to your liking? I really like the NPE items and knives you are rolling out

    There was the "sack of shit", but didn't see it on the store just now, perhaps I didn't look it up correctly.
    The government selectively enforces laws, so I selectively follow them.

    I'm thinking maybe some sort of coin pouch made and constructed from suitable material. Have it sized to hold a proper weight er I mean amount of coins for the situation. Plus a sturdy loop type handle to allow it to be quickly extracted from a pocket when the need arises.

    There is also the whole part about them being amazingly illegal in a large part of the country. Sometimes SI does do a sturdy leather coin pouch though. SI: Tactical haberdasher.

    D3 protection makes an exact replica and Tex Shoemaker makes a factory rendition of the GONZALES 415

    I could also see a 1990's Gabe with moustache wielding a PR 24!

    I'll go out on a limb and speculate that all of the "I want a...." threads didn't translate into real sales. In the time I've been here I've seen a few impact weapons offered and quietly discontinued. With the exception of the brass "key chain" type products they all seem to have faded. Capitalism works. There is a difference between "that's so cool!" and actual commerce that justifies production beyond the test marketing run.

    Good saps were easy to get back when cops carried them. Most departments stopped using them, so the market to justify real production evaporated. It's a boutique item in today's market.

    A couple years back I wanted a sap and like you I didn't see what I wanted "on the shelf." I ended up finding a place that made to order. It wasn't cheap, but it was what I wanted.
