I prefer a 1 iron as opposed to a bat, it is longer. And no wise cracks about using a 1 iron either. Not unless you want to meet me somehwere and watch me hit with it.......LOL

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
Thats a cool spot.

I think different states have different laws.

In this day in age, with people so - how do I say this - touchy about weapons, someone could be a tator and say it's a "concealed weapon". Odds of someone doing that are low but probably not unheard of.

Why a bat? You should pull out the big guns, like a couple of bowling balls, maybe two-dozen shuttlecocks mounted instead.

Someone high on drugs won't even feel the pepper spray or sometimes even a Tazer, or being shot several times, ever watch Cops or those police video shows when they try to subdue someone on Drugs?

By the extension of the Castle law. ANYONE is allowed to have any legal weapon in their car as long as it is concealed for protection of self/property and a 3rd partyy(this one is very shaky though). As long as it is not visible. If it is in your globe compartment. And you open it to get your insurance card and you don't close it back. It doesn't count as concealed and controlled. The CHL only apiea to carrying it on your person. But I have mine. And keep a loaded 9mm at all times.

Just keep a ball and glove in the trunk along with the bat. Perhaps throw in a pair of cleats as well. If you are ever questioned about it, you state that you play baseball. What can they say about that?

Hey, just a thought...make sure that the strong arms on the trunk can handle the weight of the bat. Those things seem pretty sensitive at times.

The closer you mount it to the pivot point the less effect it will have.

Because he might pull the release cable and run amok among the populace.

just as an example, don't really want to get into any debates right now, but Aurora CO was rated one of the best places to live in the US in 2011. I'm sure there were a whole lot of people that were saying the same thing as you. "been here my whole life, no need to weapons of any kind", etc. 2012, shooting in the theatre. not saying a bat or any kind of weapon could have prevented that, just saying, you always think you are safe, until you're not. would you rather be someone prepared, or not prepared at all? Is all i'm really getting at.

but then again, some people don't have that mindset, and that's ok. just don't see why, if someone wants a weapon, to make them feel better, why it's questioned.

why not just get a concealed carry license? A baseball bat would look a bit ridiculous and probably wont offer much protection to begin with. It's also a weapon associated with hoodlums so police would probably give you a hard time for it. On the other hand it is your right to bear arms with the proper licensing.

You do not need a license to have a weapon concealed in your vehicle per "castle law" as long as it is secured and not visible

I think I'd mount a Samurai Sword or a Chainsaw instead.....or maybe I wouldn't mount anything and get a concealed carry permit instead. A bat mounted in the trunk of your car won't do you any good whatsoever for defense, and if you ever did tune somebody up with it you'd stand a great chance of being prosecuted for assault regardless of the circumstances because you had it prominently mounted in your car.....a sane person would wonder why someone (other than maybe a MLB player) would mount a bat in the trunk of their car.

It's your car though, so knock yourself out (don't use the bat to do so though)

I've lived in the north and the south. I don't think that has anything to do with it. I do not feel a need for a weapon, and others do. I am ok with that, and that is where I guess we should all leave it.
