TacPens and Planes

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

Mentioned earlier the TSA calling the cops on the guy who had one on a plane. I think this is his lawyer who tells us how dumb it is to ban pens.

TSA and Tacpens

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

Reader reports that TSA has come out against tactical pens: When is a pen not just a pen? The answer is when it doubles as a potential weapon. A TSO at Palm Beach International (Fla.) was working the X-ray machine when he came across an anomaly on the screen and called for a search of […]

Airline self-defense

What would you do and how to prepare for some sort of terror attack on a plane. I’ve mentioned before that when I traveled a lot for a living I carried some items that made an easily improvised weapon. Sure, itís not whiz-bang tacticool but one smack upside the noggin and itís coloring books for […]

The best tactical pen on the market! I love my TacPens but even they can’t do that.

The Ultimate Titanium Clicky Pen Project

I do love my TacPen. But it is difficult to deploy quickly. Well, for writing. So, I do like this idea.

A democrat said that women who think they might get raped should use a whistle or at least wait until they’re “rape raped” before defending themselves. Now, one more genius democrat says use a ballpoint pen. I like my Tactical Pen but it’s what I carry onto airplanes or other places where I can’t have […]

Clever. But I’ll stick with my TacPens, which are great. And, hey, other colors.

Gunny Gifts For Non Gunnies

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012

Been a theme here on items we gun nuts can get as gifts for non-gun nut friends. I’ve given quite a few friends Surefire G2s flashlights and S&W TacPens as gifts. Les Jones was giving preparedness type things as gifts. Good idea. I’m a fan of the Eaton Radio/flashlight/charger combo. My comments on it here. […]

NYC Quick Notes

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

The most interesting part of the trip was when I almost stabbed somebody. We were on the subway (I hate being underground, btw. It sorta weirds me out.) and a disheveled looking guy, who looks nervous and unclean, boards at the last minute. Once the door shuts, he starts screaming to the top of his […]

More NYC

Thursday, April 7th, 2011

Sebastian has more, including discussion of chemical deterrent laws in NYC. From this post, a lot of people are telling me to carry a cane. Really? I think my coworkers might notice if I suddenly developed a limp or something. I did order some Fox OC. From Amazon. To be shipped to my door in […]

TSA blogging

Monday, November 8th, 2010

Smith and Wesson tacpens go right through. Heh. Check your bags if you’re over seventy. Telling the tsa agent that if their ‘floor is going to be that cold, they need to hurry up and get me my shoes’ will get your laptop swabbed. The three ounce limit is dumb because you can take all […]

Tactical Crap

Thursday, October 21st, 2010

Heh: I carry a handgun almost everywhere I go. Most times my wife, family and friends never know. I also have cool toys like Rambo knives, shooting gloves, knee and elbow pads, hydration packs and even boots designed for sliding down ropes and kicking in doors. I just donít wear any of that stuff to […]

Being tactical requires organizational skills

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

In the last few weeks, I’ve lost my tactical pen and my multi-tool. I need a tactical purse. I’m sold on the TacPen. Anyhoo, any recommendations on a new multi-tool? Anything wizbang tactical come out since the skeletool?

I reviewed the S&W TacPen here. Steve in TN says Zebra pens are the way to go.

Smith and Wesson Tactical Pen Review

Monday, January 25th, 2010

I recently bought an S&W TacPen: This is a tactical pen (yeah, I know, I make fun of tactical stuff a lot). In true tactical form, it is both black and more expensive than a regular pen. They can be had at Amazon for about $26, substantially lower in price than similar products. As to […]

Neat but you can’t get one

Thursday, January 7th, 2010

Internet commerce fail I noted a couple days ago the tactical pen. And it keeps popping up at other places. I decided that, for $20, I wanted one. Trouble is, I can’t buy one. I go to CampCo’s awful website, where the pen is hard to find. After I navigate the awful search and find […]

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
