Gerber Impromptu Tactical Pen

We’ve yet to find ourselves in a situation where we had to break through a window, but if we did we’d rather have one of Gerber’s Impromptu Tactical Pens on us over using our fists and elbows. This machined steel writing tool features a push-button deployed Rite in the Rain ballpoint cartridge that writes in adverse conditions (even rain), packs a handy stainless steel pocket clip for easy everyday carry, and, most notably, features a tempered steel glass breaker tip that makes quick work of vehicle windshields (and can etch them up, too). Plus, we figure it’s a bit more menacing of a weapon with which to defend oneself, at least compared to your standard plastic Bic.
