    I think a criminal would have a belly laugh prior to grabbing the bat from your hand and beating you with it.

    Oh I already got the guns.

    I just want something to go all Gladiator on him first. But you are right. It would be hard to stop laughing myself.

    I especially admire the shield. Wasn't this already addressed 500 years ago when firearms really came into their own? If I was a criminal, I'd be laughing too.

    I agree! Not to mention, by the time you actually took the tray off and armed yourself with the bat, the criminal would more than likely already have done some damage.

    I taught a Rape Aggression Defense class a few years back. While weapons are not discouraged, it is ultimately better to know how to defend yourself without a bat or a gun. Both can be taken from you and then what are you left with.......If its a burglary, you just lost the table you dished out some nice money for and more than likely won't have the money to replace it.
