    What do we know of blackjacks?

    Primarily what is the necessary weight of the weapon for it to be effective, and secondly where should one aim such a weapon

    Necessary weight? Are you looking to kill, to stun, or to break bones? Are you thinking of making your own or buying one?

    Where to aim? Arms, legs, ribs, hands. A small blackjack is quite capable of stealing childhood memories, as the guy who made my blackjacks likes to say.

    for a big knock out, aim for the base of the skull. wouldn't suggest doing that to anyone you like. I have no idea about weight but it probably shouldn't be more than 3 pounds

    A 3 pound blackjack? Most balckjacks are in the 8-12 oz range, some going as high as 20 oz.

    Aiming for the base of the skull, or anywhere on the head with a 3 pound blackjack would be a killing blow, not a knockout. Ever handle a blackjack?

    I think the worst you can do with those things is make somebody eat them.

    carry around a sock with a roll of quarters. unlike a black jack, it's not a weapon, you were "just going to do my laundry, officer, i swear!"

    I think the real question is what do we know of jackblack.

    I was playing with my key chain the other day and noticed that it may make a somewhat serviceable blackjack, although at just under 4 oz, it appears that it would not be useful in that function.
