I have made several of these with all different size and shapes. I was asked to make one for a friend and knew the law in some states want allow you to make them so I wrote my local sheriff and asked if it was legal to make. His answer was it was okay to make but what one does with it may not be legal.
That being said this isn’t intended to be used as a weapon. A lot of truck drivers use something like this to check the tire pressure to see if they have a flat. When you have more than one tire per side its hard to tell if one is flat or not, so this works out okay for that.
My little lady is an ex truck driver. She still has her CDl’s but thank God she decided to give up that trade. She loves running the roads but that is one hard job. The hours the truck drivers spend away from home is awful. Hard on the body and its one job I would never want to do
She carries her baton or billy stick in her car all the time. It would be a easy way to stop someone from messing with you in the event you needed it.
BUT ITS NOT A WEAPON.
