Yeah, I know in this age of carbon fibers and weight wienies it doesn't make since, but I miss my old metal tire pump I had back in the 70's.

Nice multiuse tool. Great for pumping up tires and lasts almost forever. Looks nice.

And most important, makes a nice club. Used mine more than once to fend off dog attacks. A good smack on the nose and most dogs turn tail and run.

I ruined my cheap plastic frame pump recently. Tried to club the dog but the thing just fell apart and the shaft bent. So there I was standing in the middle of the road staring eye to eye with a big German Shepard and all I had left in my had was half a frame pump. (the light half). After a stare down of what felt like a minute, the dog backed off and I backed off in the opposite direction.

Does anyone sell a solid frame pump/club anymore?
