    Personal Protection Baton $60

    Not really hunting or shooting I know, but trademe keep pulling it saying its an offensive weapon so thought I'd list on here. It's a wooden baton made here in NZ, judging by the paperwork looks like 70s or 80s. Items still new unused, I only opened the packaging to have a look at the paperwork. $60 including shipping. Please PM if interested

    Kiwi Disposals used to sell them.
    You should add some motorcycle helmet paint and blood smears and say it's from genuine 1981 Bok tour protesters.
    Ross Meurant lives on Kepa Road in Auckland. Wonder if he could sign it too as from his squad of boys in blue.

    Is it a real "Minto stick"?

    My mate has a genuine "STOP THE TOUR" sign in his shed, he kept it after the cunts smashed his fence to use the palings as weapons against the police.

    It's not too late to add some genuine John Minto blood to it.
    Would be plenty of volunteers.
    My Mrs shouldered the c**t from behind when she was working at the ASB tennis one year.
    The security guards rated her hit on the 'smashed em bro' meter as an 8.

    Geez I remember as a kid watching that Tour unfold. It was like nothing I had ever seen...felt like civil war . Sitting in front of the old Philips K9 TV watching battles on the streets of NZ.

    My dad was in the stands at the cancelled Waikato game and for the test at Eden Park, while my Aunt and Grandfather (Crete and North Africa veteran) were outside protesting (peacefully). It certainly split families.

    @Marty Henry No, Both squads used the PR24, a side handled baton, the Australian public order teams use something like this but a lot longer!

    Minto stick...love it. Yeah tertle is right, they were the ones with the side handle.
    As a side note, I prefer a hockey stick as a handy piece while still being 'sports equipment'

    And they were made of an engineering plastic from what I remember. I have some of the material in the workshop.

    I did enjoy those times. I'd do my usual trick and keep quiet until I found out which side was batting for, then argue the other side. Thought the old man was going to scone me one day.

    Golf clubs, towel rails. Saw one in a mates flat (He had some rather drop kick neighbours) and it was a chrome on solid metal towel rail held on the wall with double sided tape by the front door. It held towels for drying off when coming in from rain but it would come away rom the wall very quickly when another use was needed.....I dont know they ever needed to use it, but they slept better with it sitting there.
