There are numerous advantages to both extendable and side-handle batons. The PR-24 from Monadnock, now part of Safariland, combines both. It features a proven side-handle design and the compactness of a positive-locking, expandable system. The baton opens with a simple flick of the wrist, positively locking into place. A Trumbull stop handle provides increased baton retention. The PR-24 is available in both polycarbonate and anodized aluminum. MSRP $49.99- $110.99.
