No two tactical pens are exactly alike. Different brands have different benefits and drawbacks. Here are a few of the features the functions your tactical pen may be able to perform and features it might have:

    Unfortunately, I leaped before looked there Survival Life Crew. Last week I sent in a suggestion comments page about some other items to incorporate into the Tactical Pens and just this morning ran into the Schrade T.P. video[and through it, .] on your Survival Life info-gram, so it still always holds true for one to “look before one leaps”. And thank you for being out there for all of us” would be lost sheep”, with out you. Kevin M.

    As I appreciate the pointers, there are also enough “BAD” people out there that shouldn’t have this kind of information.. Have you guys done a background check on all these people you’re sending these pointers to? We have a lot of people wanting to take down America right now, remember 9/11! That shouldn’t have happened. Now, this simple thing that you’re telling me, could pass airport security. If I can know it, so would the bad guys. That’s undiserning to me as a concerned US citizen. Just hope that these emails are going to the right people.
