Please tell me that this is a joke. Who would expect to use a "tactical pen" to defend themselves? I just saw my first one, a CRKT Elishowitz design given to a friend at a birthday party.
Probably not (from wikipedia)I wonder if anyone has tried to take a tactical pen on a plane? I always feel naked on the plane with no firearm and no knife...
