Two new batons, the P12 and P16, will be officially introduced by Armament Systems and Procedures (ASP) at the 2012 SHOT Show. At this time, there are no details on the specifics of the two new batons.
A guess, however, might suggest a 12″ and 16″ length for the P12 and P16 respectively. I don’t think that ASP currently makes a 12″ baton. That would be a very short baton, and I would not think it would be geared for patrol officers. Perhaps it will be something akin to a kubotan that can expand?
Regardless, we will be at the ASP booth at the Show and bring you the details. Make sure you check back here for law enforcement gear updates from the show. Click here for new guns at the SHOT Show from our sister site, GunsHolstersAndGear.com.
