Aluminum or wood baseball bat (for defense)?
I'd like to buy a baseball bat for home defense. I know, a lot of people prefer firearms, but I would prefer a bat:
They never misfire
They never jam
They never run out of ammo
They're perfectly legal to own, transport, etc
If they're lost or stolen you don't have to worry about what happens with it
My only question is - wood or aluminum? I'm leaning towards aluminum though I'm not sure if there might be a good argument to go wood instead.
This was brought on after my wife woke me up at 3am thinking someone had broken in to the house. I had nothing handy to defend myself with while I went downstairs to look in to the source of the sound (ended up being from a snow storm).
