Yes, someone's invented a bat with a flashlight!

No way anyone's not going to view that as a deliberate weapon, unlike a 4 cell flashlight...

Guys have been selling a machined bat handle tailcaps for the big maglites at gun shows for a while. They strike me as something that genuinely add to the effectiveness of a maglite as a weapon while simultaneously taking away any real reason not to just carry around an actual bat.

But I totally agree with JShirley.

You be in a heap a trouble boy!

Truck tire checker at night very handy and completely legal

If you have a tractor-trailer handy. Otherwise, I vote for the flashlight which is not a per se weapon.

Entirely why large Maglites are frowned on in LEO carry now. They got used too much as a riot baton. After a while the number of legitimate suits pile up on the counselor's desk and a conference is held with city management and the Chief. Things change.

Not to mention that in the day and age of widespread effective concealed carry, a bat isn't needed. For the LEO, it's bulky, has to be holstered/unholstered getting into and out of a cruiser, beats his thighs chasing down perps, if taken to hand in daylight it could be construed an elevation of force, not just meeting it equally.

Goes to intent - it's a baseball bat first, the "flashlight" part can be met with ease by any AAA micro light these days. In terms of gear on the Batbelt, much better the smaller light. I see lots of older residents walking suburban streets with canes, sticks, and cudgels. It's just a show of force in a politically acceptable way.
