Sap, Blackjack & Slungshot History: Gonzales 415 (D3 Protection Reproduction)
The other thread being a bit of a mess, and we'll leave it at that, I wanna just show off my new homemade coin sap.
This bad boy weighs 600 grams 1.
please click for source loaded the outside pockets mainly with quarters, but I may take the stuff out of there seeing as they provide a good reinforcing layer of leather and it looks better without it, plus 600 grams is probably a bit much.
Some brief instructions on making one of these - I went to a cobbler and he let me cut the leather myself.
Final dimensions are about 11" by 2.
That means I started with three pieces of leather, one being 22" by 2.
I like the non-black color.
All my la slota have said "Cool wallet" or "Do you have a knife in there?
If anyone wants advice on making one of these, PM me.
It's not that hard, but you have to get the dimensions right if you want to fit a card in the front pouches and want it to properly hang off a belt.
Good leather is a plus too.
Bumped the weight down to about 14.
Smaller masses of coins may be worthwhile too, because they concentrate the force in a smaller area.
Using an extreme example, it obviously wouldn't be too efficient to swing 2.
Slow and heavy is good though.
Got the weight down to 10 oz on the nose 285g.
Seems to be the best balance of power, surface area, and portability.
No one even gives this puppy a second glance walking around, in a world of cell phone holsters etc etc.
Nice thing homemade blackjack sap it is, I can fit several cards and some cash in the pockets, take out some of the coins, and after crossing over a secured checkpoint courthouse entrance, plane checkin, etc refill it with coins.
And as it is, it's really nice for carrying around quarters for tollbooths, laundromats, etc.
I'd put dimes in it, but quarters are more usefull these days.
I still wonder how effective it'd be if one ever had to deploy it under pressure.
That sacrifices some level of retention, of course.
Gordon, I appreciate the input.
I'm still messing around with it.
An important variable is how the coins are sitting.
When they settle and bunch together more, it becomes much more effective.
I think your next project should be a "coin purse" over the knuckle area of a heavy leather glove.
I think it'd be hard to get enough coins in there to make it worthwhile, though.
Well, two tips: first, overestimate on the size of everything rather than underestimate.
And second, it's more time-consuming to cut it out than sew it, so if you can cut it yourself then pay someone to sew it you come out cheaper.
I think Conwict; No, I'm serious.
I've just always been a fan of sap gloves although I've never actually seen them in real life.
I've talked to a bunch of old time coppers, and they all said the same thing, "they work like magic".
One hit to the face, and it's lights out.
As far as the old-time impact weapons goes, I'd love to have a pair, if they weren't a felony to possess in my state.
Anyways, "coin purse gloves" might be the next iteration.
The advantages of sap gloves is that they're always on.
Plus, if they aren't on, you can grab them by the fingers and use them as a regular sap.
You could use buckshot for that matter.
Okay why not just use sand or some other weight instead of fooling around with coins.
You could use buckshot for that matter.
Because coins serve other functions than smacking someone in the head?
You can buy a drink or pay a toll or put money in a meter or get that extra penny you need.
Conwict, did you know that US Navy sailors have traditionally carried homemade blackjack sap roll of coins in their neckerchiefs when going on liberty for use as an emergency blackjack?
Indeed, the whole purpose of coins is plausible deniability for areas were a per homemade blackjack sap blackjack blackjack a 6 fr s price bludgeon is prohibited.
It is for this reason that a coin sap should be as unlike a conventional sap as possible.
As I mentioned before, a long tubular bag will suffice depending on what you're going for.
Hmm, well you could have a normal coin pouch and just slip it into a regular glove for backhands or palm-slaps.
Though I must admit I do like weighted-knuckle gloves myself they're legal here.
But their main advantage is that you don't break your fingers when you punch someone in the face.
That's something most people don't know: Hitting people in the head bare-knuckle hurts you too!
Just hope that you never have to use it, after a long day of feeding parking meters down town.
I run my coin sap at about 8-10oz, depending on how hungry I am But, it came in a very handy for feeding the meter when the wife went into labour Click to expand.
I don't know man, my wife broke two ribs on a guy that way.
She's not very good about emptying the loose change from the bottom of her purse.

And variants are possible still?
