How thick is the bubble wrap saber covering? Is it 2"-4", is it thicker. How does it feel to battle with one of these?

Where did you buy the pipe from, I can't find one anywhere?
Also, is the 1/2 inch pipe inside or outside diameter?

I bought it from http://www.usplastic.com/catalog/item.aspx?itemid=24353

The measurement is listed with the pipe, but it's 1/2" across.

I could totally take on an intruder with one of these bad boys. I'm gonna have to make a set.
