BM for me......... great addition to my EDC arsenal.Marion David Poff wrote:Howdy,
My brother is contemplating buying one of those tactical pens, and I thought I would do some research, and see what you all think of the type and the available models.
I have the BM Pen, the first one, and I quite like it. He is thinking of buying one of those.
I like the look of the Mil-Tac and Surefire models, does anyone have them?
I wrote an article for one of the FMG self-defense annuals last year on tactical pens. At SHOT, Jack from Tuff-Writer visited with me to discuss the article, which basically emphasized the need for a good skill set to go along with the pen. I traded copies of my video on improvised-weapon tactics "Forever Armed"for a Tuff-Writer pen and have been carrying it pretty regularly since then.sarguy wrote:So will there be Martial Pen Concepts in the future?

Very Nice.mark greenman wrote:I modded my SF pen by replacing the 440 stainless steel BB with a Silicone nitride ceramic BB. My testing showed the SS BB was pretty mediocre at breaking glass, while the ceramaic works quite well.

From my original test:
Here's the same BB, now mounted in my pen. Not only does it work better, but I also think it looks pretty pimpin'
Big thanks to the guys over at USN who helped me along the way.
I agree, but it could be a nice little surprise for an attacker.stonyman wrote:The tactical in this type of pen should be left out, just like the same word that describe certain knives. They are heavy duty pens that can help you out when superior tools are not readily available. They are not magic wands, but with adequate empty hand skills it can give an increase force multiplier.Of course a cheap pen can be pressed into this role, but may break in some fashion if you do have to use as a weapon.
I am guilty of thinking everyone in the world trains and are students of interpersonal conflict. Please do not take these pens or any tool out of context. They are only as good as their operator. Take care and God Bless!
BB's are found here, but can only be purchased 10 at a time:Toad310 wrote:Dude,
