Yeah, that mace would have severly injured him if it would have struck unstopped but he got lucky and blocked it in the right place. He actually broke the guys jaw with a right (left handed strike with the mace and counter). The guy must have been a damn nut to get out of his car with that with mal intent and once it was stopped he obviously didn't have much else, so it was nice to see him get set on his ass and sent to the pokey.
IRT the axe handle, I just figure I would tell a cop that I got it at my dad's place and intended on putting a head on it when I got home.
Simple enough. It's not like I have dressed it up with grip tape or anything like that. It's just a plain length of hickory.
I used to carry around a valve stem and plug in my car(if you have ever seen an industrial valve you would know what I am talking about) but it is in the trunk of my wife's car and I have left it there for her and just so I have something in the case we are riding in it as a family and someone gets frisky. Don't know what the explanation of that would be other than that it is a valve component and the plug needs to be machined before resale.
