Gerber’s New Impromptu Tactical Pen

The Impromptu Tactical Pen combines Gerber’s decades of experience crafting tools with valuable input from police officers to offer a utilitarian tool that could quite literally be your ticket to safety. During interviews, officers agreed that the most important tool you can carry is the item that happens to be in your hand, which more often than not turns out to be a pen. So Gerber designed a pen that can write in all conditions and is rugged enough to handle the unexpected. This USA-made, push-button pen features a “Rite in the Rain” ballpoint pen cartridge that is effective in wet and dry conditions, and the tool’s machined steel body is stout enough to rise to the unexpected call of duty.

  • Made in the USA
  • Rugged, machined steel body with Cerakote™
  • Stainless steel pocket clip keeps the pen handy
  • Integrated glass-breaker tip features tempered steel and is designed to get you out of trouble
  • “Rite in the Rain” ink cartridge works in all conditions, inside and outdoors
  • Reliable push-button mechanism deploys ball point mechanism
  • Backed by Gerber’s Lifetime Warranty

One thing you can count on is that if Gerber makes it you have no worry if you need it in an emergency. We also like that it's made in the USA.

Federal HST Pistol Ammo vs Windshields

Every year US Armorment LLC participates in an ATK (read Federal) ballistics shoot for police officers. This year we actually cataloged the results. In the image below you will see the first column on the left which is bullets just fired into ballistic gel. The second and third columns are bullets shot through windshield glass and gel at a 45 degree angle, 15 degree cant. The object of the exercise is to see which bullet have the best expansion and weight and jacket retention through vehicle windshields and overall. It was no contest. Even the venerable Federal HydroShok failed to retain jacket and weight compared to the HST rounds. This is not a fluke. Overall performance mimicked last years results with the HST having the most consistent characteristics. Check everything labeled “HST” in the image. JG
