Sadly, there are plenty of places you can’t legally go with your carry gun or an EDC knife. It’s come to this…even something as seemingly innocuous as a cute little cat-shaped “self defense keychain” can land you in jail in Texas.
Perhaps especially in those ultra-safe, protected places, you may want to carry some other method of self-defense besides your bare hands. I generally carry this tactical pen (above) I got courtesy of FN USA a couple years ago. It’s solid, pointy, takes standard refills and better than harsh language or keys between the fingers if push comes to something more than shove.
It’s also managed to clear TSA scrutiny a dozen or so times.
Do you carry one? Something similar? Anything at all when a gun is out of the question?
