We’ve been telling you about survival gear and tactics for a while now, and recently we got a letter from a reader who purchased one of our tactical pens.
Here’s his incredible story (with our bold emphasis added):
Hey guys, I wanted to write you a note and let you know I actually used the “tactical pen” I bought from you for self-defense.
I was walking out of Kroeger and a guy came up to me, you know, typical “Hey buddy you got 5 bucks” kind of thing.
Only problem is, he wouldn’t take no for an answer, and he grabbed me by the shirt!
I didn’t want to go to jail, but I also couldn’t let this guy lay hands on me. I had my tactical pen clipped to my pocket, so I used the pointed end and slammed it into his arm right at the biceps.
He let go and actually yelped like a dog, rubbing his arm and cursing me out.
I got into my car and got out of there, fast.
This right here is the tactical pen our reader bought – and while he sent a picture of his slightly scuffed pen, we figured we’d leave that out just in case. The picture you see here is the one we use on our website.
You can see why it works, too:
This is basically an aluminum spike that you can plant in an attacker’s eyes, his neck, and a few other vulnerable spots — like the muscle of the arm!
It can stab, or it can “poke” like a pocket stick/pressure point tool.
Like our reader, you never know when this could literally save you from a real-life assault.
Stay safe out there!
