- Multifunctional TacBat works as both a flashlight and a self-defensive weapon
Stories of thwarted attacks welcomed.
I bought a two-pack previously. It’s much smaller than I thought it would be. If you’re expecting something the size of a baseball bat, you’ll be disappointed, but if you read the description closely (“Compact design extends up to 12 in. long”) you’ll know that it’s not as large as a bat. I have other flashlights that are probably longer and heavier that would be better as a weapon.
That said, I remember my dad saying that the old MagLites with multiple batteries were useful as defensive weapons for bashing somebody’s head. I’m sure this would cause a lot of damage – if you were close enough to use it.
