But a CQC seminar such as the one coming that up he is attending, we need to teach and practice both "fixed" and expandable baton "quick draws" from all of the Stop Six positions as part of the lesson plan. The more people with expandables there the better.

Any person well-versed with modern hand, stick, knife, gun combatives, should be familiar with the pros, cons and use of expandable bations because they are still a major use and concern in personal protection, security, police and militarise of the world.

Pulling and opening batons is a CQC Group Level 1 concern. Once you open the baton, Level 2 and beyond, it is a just a stick - more or less -  and then you can use a wooden stick, etc for the rest of the training. But it is good to use that which you will carry as much as possible.

I would assume this varies by state, but is there road bany legal guideline for the carry of an expandable baton?  Are they generally legal or no?
