Just wondering if extendable batons are legal to carry if not concealed? i was told they are legal to carry as long as they arent concealer,I have seen them being sold at some stores and find that its hard to belive there legal to sell and carry

You can legally carry an extendable baton as long as it is not concealed and not used in a threatening manner. Extending a baton could be considered threatening in some circumstances and could result in criminal charges.

The carrying of an extendable baton is not recommended by Durham Regional Police.
