Let’s talk about how to protect yourself with a tactical pen.
What the heck is a tactical pen?
And, why the heck should you consider carrying one?
Both great questions.
This can be an uncomfortable subject, but something we should be willing to discuss and consider for personal safety purposes.
A tactical pen is an object of self-defense that has two purposes: it’s an actual pen and a self-defense weapon.
You should consider carrying one if you don’t already carry some sort of self-protection gear.

As y’all know, I am a runner.
As a runner, as one who is alone on the streets for long periods of time, I need to be able to protect myself.
I could carry concealed, but lawsy, can you imagine?!
Instead, my go-to has been Sabre pepper spray – in the big dispenser. Cause if I’m gonna pull it out to use, I want to stop whatever threat is in front of me.
I’m always looking to add tricks to my self-defense bag and a tactical pen is simply one more layer of protection.

NO ONE likes to consider why you might need to use a tactical pen, but EVERYONE likes the idea of being able to protect themselves.

Don’t let fear of what these pens represent (nefarious intent of a stranger) stop you from considering them for your self defense bag o’tricks, or from possibly gifting them to someone you know who could benefit from owning one.
Fear is one of the worst reasons to not protect yourself.
We can hope we never have to use a tactical pen or pepper spray, but better to have a way to protect you and those with you when necessary.
Be like a Boy Scout – ever prepared.
Or as the saying goes: hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.
Stay safe out there, my babies.
