POLICE WEAPON Filed Feb. 11, 1944 Patented Dec. 25, 1945 UNITED STATES PATENT rOFFICE POLICE WEAPON Robert L. Hutchison, Roma, Tex.

Application February 11, 1944, Serial No. 521,997

Claims.

This invention relates to a weapon primarily for use in law enforcement.

It is particularly aimed to provide a structure adapted for use somewhat like a blackjack or billy and it aims to provide such a structure which is generally flexible and will have a more telling and effective blow-producing function, with less effort than heretofore and with less chance of gashing or bruising the scalp of the prisoner.

It is further particularly aimed to provide a structure which may be made from leather or equivalent flexible material providing a pouch that the weapon may be effectively grasped. It i will also be noted that at the end opposite to the containing a mass of shot and also providing a hand hold or gripping opening.

In addition, it is aimed to provide a structure which is not bulky so that it may lbe carried by the officer concealed to better advantage than heretofore, in fact, in any pocket practically unnoticeable, a construction which will always be in a position for use, one which will be comfortable to the ocer, especially when sitting, and a structure which may be more effectively grasped by the oflicer and held to better advantage against danger of its being wrested from him.

The more specic objects and advantages will become apparent from a consideration of the description following taken in connection with accompanying drawing illustrating an operative embodiment.

In said dra-Wing- Figure 1 is a view in elevation of the improved Weapon;

Figure 2 is a central longitudinal section taken on the line 2-2 of Figure 1;

Figure 3 is a plan view of the main blank of the weapon in unfolded or flat condition;

Figure 4 is a cross-sectional View taken on the line 4-4 of Figure l; and

Figure 5 is an elevational view of a spacing and reinforcing frame or strip which may be used.

Referring specifically to the drawing wherein like reference characters designate like or similar parts, a blank is provided in flat form as shown in Figure 3, and it is preferably of leather a1 though it may be made of any suitable material. This blank provides connected side Walls I0 which are foldable upon each other at their connections as at II. After folding of the walls I0 toward each other, a spacing frame or strip I2 is disposed between them at the margins of the walls I0 and is stitched thereto as at I3. It will be noted that the Walls I0 have registering openings at I4 and that a strip or frame I5 is disposed between walls I0 and surrounds such openhand-hold a pouch orsac is formed which is filled with a loose mass of metallic particles or other weighted articles, preferably shot, as at I1.

The strips or frames I2 and I5 are preferably of leather like the Walls I0 and the stitching at I3 and I6 is accomplished with a heavy waxed thread. While the shot may be disposed directly in the pouch as shown, the same may however, be held in a buckskin or other sac so that in the event 0f ripping of the stitching, the balls I1 will still be retained in place.

It is to be understood that the structure may be of any desired size and shape and that the portion provided with the hand-hold maybe wider than the pocket or shot-carrying portion, or vice versa.

The strips at l2 and I5 add stiffness at the edges of the structure and provide smooth edges.

The weapon is adapted for use primarily substantially like a :b1ackjack" or "'billy in subduing prisoners and it provides a relatively flat, wide, flexible construction which will deal a more telling and effective blow with less effort than heretofore and at the same time with less danger of injury by gashing and 4bruising the scalp or face of the person being subdued. A rm handhold can be had on the weapon with the fingers and free movement of .the knuckles had even When wearing gloves.

Various changes may be resorted to provided they fall within the spirit and scope of the invention.

I claim as my invention:

1. A weapon of the class described comprising superposed walls providing a pocket, a mass of discrete weight particles in said pocket, and the walls having a hand opening therethrough.

2. A weapon of the class described comprising superposed walls providing a pocket, a mass of discrete Weight particles in said pocket, the walls having a hand opening therethrough, a spacing strip secured between the walls marginally thereof, and a spacing strip secured to the walls between the same and marginally of the hand-hold.

3. A weapon of the class described having connected walls, means securing the walls together marginally, said walls providing a pocket, a mass of discrete Weight elements in said pockets, and

the walls having a hand opening therethrough.
