Tactical pens today can be an amazing holdout option to a high-pressure situation when you have exhausted all further options. Tactical pens are exactly what they sound like. A pen that is rugged and built for the environment and often has an aluminum or titanium body. Yes, they do write! However, the main purpose of carrying one of these would be for the blunt point. If you know where the sweet spots are, you can control a person by attacking their pressure points.

Since the dawn of time, the baton has been an absolute classic for self-defense. No matter how you look at this, who can argue with a nice weighty piece of wood or metal? This is a first step in less than lethal self-defense, and you will still see this as an item carried by police and military worldwide. This can be an excellent choice for you as well, but make sure to check your local and state laws! We are not lawyers and all self-defense purchases should always be made with wisdom and research in mind. A baton has the ability to provide quick strikes or jabs, sweeping the legs of an opponent, or even just adding that extra reach to your profile. A baton is overall an excellent choice when less lethal is the better choice.
