As always, check your state and local laws before you try it. For example, in Virginia, it’s not actually illegal to have one, but possession is prima facie evidence of intent to sell it, which is illegal. This also applies to brass knuckles, shuriken, switchblades, and ballistic knives.
With a Kentucky CCW, everything that can be legally owned in the USA is cool for concealed carry in KY. I really do want to try a sap. Been trying to get into leather craft and have been looking for designs I could try out to make one.
I added a Boston Leather Junior Sap to my carry gear a few months ago and have been carrying it daily. I also had Boston leather make one for me without any lead to use as a trainer. The gold standard for saps are the ones made by Todd Foster. They are about $50, made to order, and are very nice. http://fostersaps.blogspot.com/
I had this wrench I found at work. Older than dirt. Didn’t even have an idea what it was for or why it was laying around. Used to carry that in the leg pocket on the cargo pants…but stopped when I realized I’d have to explain why I had it if asked.
Easier to have a flashlight. I get funny looks, but the Rayovac 3 Watt I carry uses 2 AA batteries, has an LED lamp, and I even have the Kydex sheath my buddy had made before he got a different light for work and I got it for a song.
I get funny looks for having that next to the Leatherman on the belt.
