  • ASP care?

    Picked up a used asp off a friend, nice and rusty.. So I cleaned it all up with a wire brush, it's shiny and works fine. I'm just curious if I need to put any lube or anything on it for PM, or just put it back together?
    Seriously, the only reason I wanted to be a cop was so I could post anywhere on this forum.

    I was always instructed never to lube an ASP, as you'll compromise the friction that is used to keep it open.

      Don't ever use any type of "lube" on your ASP. Use only a dry paper towl or something to that effect. As stated, your ASP works on the principle of friction, something that would be lost if you used WD-40 or something on thr shaft.

        I wasn't referring to it in terms of lubing it, I really meant more like "drylubing" with militec to protect the metal.

          I'd just change the pin on the inside and the inner ring.

            Leave the ASP at home where it belongs and you won't have any rust problems.

              I believe they have a rubber o-ring in the tailcap so some silicone grease on the tailcap threads should be the only place you'll need lube.

                    I know several cops who have broken their asp on bad guys with no reaction only to have the badguy say hours later "ouch my freakin leg hurts"

                    They don't carry them anymore. Besides once I get my taser, I'll have pepper, my fists, and a taser, do I really need a 3rd intermediate weapon?

                      I think the better question would be "why wouldn't you want every available option?" No one piece of equipment or technique is effective 100% of the time.
                      Don't ever pass up an opportunity to keep your mouth shut.

                          I don't talk down to a cop with a legitimate question, who did nothing to anyone, like a smart-mouth punk student, such as yourself. Do you really want to do this? I'm giving you advanced warning that I will win.

                            First off, I'm not a student. Just because I don't think what I do defines who I am on the internet doesn't mean anything. I don't have to prove anything to anyone. People can be right or wrong whether or not they are an LEO or not.


                            It was a joke. Nothing wrong with that. If you want to attempt to start "fights" on the internet, you've come to the wrong place. Go someplace else to be a keyboard warrior.

                              LOL.

                              Your mouth was what got you banned last time.
