There was once a classic Tv series called Bat Masterson. It was about a western well-off gambler who spent his time being able to help the less fortunate. He was always there to save a damsel in distress from a bully, stop a bad land owner from scaring off a rancher and his household, or breaking up a stagecoach robbery. He was really a true hero and his awesome identifying trait was a beautifully designed cane with a silver metal crown.
He use this uniquely designed cane to defeat his adversaries. Imagine how successful he would have been if he made use of a stun gun cane instead?
