MA LTC holder. From other sources and here I hear the chances of a non-res RI LTC are pretty much laughable. But if I were to be spending more time in RI and not just passing through, I got to thinking about other options.

Knife- always have a small folder anyway, just gotta make sure its under 3" (found threads and refs here)
Pepper spray- no problem, again threads and references here
Baton- I'm thinking probably a no-no.
RI code 11-47-42: "No person shall carry or possess or attempt to use against another any instrument or weapon of the kind commonly known as a blackjack, slingshot, billy, sandclub, sandbag, metal knuckles, slap glove, bludgeon, stun-gun, or the so called "Kung-Fu" weapons."

I consider an expandable baton different from a blackjack or billy, but something tells me the RI legal system may think different...

Opinions?

Only RI legal baton I could find. Course you can probably get one of the ones with the metal rod in the middle, and then "get creative". [laugh]
