I truly agree with this statement.....it is What To Do ! know your surroundings.....I use a staff even in the finer neighborhoods, ya just never know when a stray dog might approach, it is more of a deterant then an actual defense weapon, unless of course you have alot of skill and training.......I see quite a few places thoughout my state when I attend festivals, and hear quite a few stories,............when I am in a strange town selling my wares, I carry my pistol, and do have a CCW and have been fully trained.

Just about any hard wood will do, your idea is escape not prolonged battle (not that any stick will stop a bullet).

Something a dog can chew on for a while and long enough that you can poke a throat, eye or groin and swing to a knee. Its almost more about the "what to do" than to "what with".
Where you live I would almost consider carrying a shark stick or bang stick:)

Best stick for defense? Best defense IMO walk with confidence and carry a big stick!

I believe the actual quote is "walk softly and carry a big stick"

Seriously if you exude confidence and don't look like a mark most street toughs will leave you be.

It also doesn't hurt to be carrying a heavy piece of hard wood, oak or hickory come to mind. Cane on left is hickory cane on right is red oak.
