Mounting a bat in the trunk
 
I just got my ashen grey metallic paint matched aluminum 29" bat in the mail, and I've just been told that it may be illegal for me to use the Velcro mounts I bought to mount it in the trunk.

Is this true? Am I really not allowed to keep a bat for show/self defense locked away in my own property? Its a locked compartment...

I want to put it here

I don't know why it would be a problem. You are allowed to keep an unloaded shot gun in your trunk, why would a bat be an issue. Just tell them it's a conversation piece.

I have no idea, but if I lived in an area where I felt it necessary to carry a bat for self-defense, I would move! I can not imagine it is illegal. My friends that still play competitive softball carry bats and balls in their vehicles at all times. though I do not think they chose to display any of them. Best of luck!

I have never heard of a bat being illegal to have in your car. lol if you are ever asked about it, by a cop, tell them you play baseball...

I would be in deep poo poo most everyday, my son plays baseball and has at least two bats in the car all the time. Not the Camaro usually, maybe they are only illegal in Camaro's....lol

Call your local sheriffs office....they can tell you the letter of the law....my guess is you could carry it in the passenger compartment if your so inclined...you can carry a firearm in your car in florida .....it just needs to be a 2 step process to access it

GAHDOOSH 07-30-2013 08:35 AM

I think its the paint and mount that is getting people to tell me its illegal.
Honestly, I paid way too much to paint match this thing to ever hit anything or anyone with it... it's for show.

Has to be in the trunk and not the cabin. I got caught with one in the cabin, and it can be classified the same as a billy and blackjack. It carries a 3rd degree felony, and can get you jail time and/or probation. My lawyer had it reduced to a misdemeanor, disorderly persons. It would also help to go hit a few balls with it, to proved it is used for playing ball and not cracking skulls.

A bat? What are you in high school?

Hey and if so I usually had somethingn in my ride back then. Then I got to college and didn't give a crap. But if you're 21 and up get a pistol and a concealed weapon permit. Depending on the law in SC. I learned this, apparently SC isn't a reciprocal state with AL. So I don't know, maybe y'all s laws are messed up.

bb040 07-30-2013 09:26 AM

won't the bat crap all over the inside of you trunk.....lol

Unfortunately in thses days and times, I would not bring a bat to a gunfight. Ccw if you are 21, pepper spray if you are not.

This is why I love this state. You can load the damn thing and also keep it where you like, just don't chamber a long gun.

But seriously I can't imagine why I would want a bad in my trunk vs a gun within reach, unless you plan in stumbling into a sopranos musical.............

Saw the title to the thread, and thought he was going to decorate the emergency trunk release like a bat.

(Now to move my old school tire iron back to the trunk)

Not so much. Pepper spray can actually take someone out of the fight. Stun gun just hurts for a second and pisses most people off. To get a taser like police carry you have to go through a class to be certified with it. Even with that if you don't have a way to detain them after the shock your screwed.

The taser absolutely pissed me off. I was for sure ready to fight afterwards!!!!!





And I LOLed with the "won't a bat poop in your trunk" comment.

My opinion: It's NOT like the wild, wild west because of our law structure in AZ. I'm far less inclined to want to get into an altercation with someone on the road as I would be in say, my home state of IL where "everything" is illegal. Not that I would do it there, either, anymore. I'm too old for that stuff.
