    Actually a very good question. The dumb thing is as you mentioned the way a lot of people use it. I don't use a hand at all just because of that. The way I see a lot of people use it is just plain...

    Don't be a dumb ass you know what I mean. You have much more control over the baton than the bullet as to whether it would be lethal or not. I don't care what anyone says that dog didn't need to be...
