    Evidently I’ve been to that site before. When I added the pen to my cart, I already had a streamlight in there. :D

    Deleted the light, showed the $0 + shipping/tax, and then I added one of the bonus deals. It was a badge holder for $5.99...need one for my PHA range pass. Shipping stayed the same.

    Good deal.

    Ordered.

    I’ll buy a 10 pack of Bic pens for trips to avoid donating my new pen to a TSA agent!

    I'm curious if that lighter will work well on a large ring cigar, and is it made worth a crud.

    Thanks for the heads up. Grabbed another fire starter, ID holder, and added the pen. @Catfish traveling was the reason I wanted the pen. I have a very nice light/pen combo I've been wanting to carry with me but didn't want to chance loosing it to the TSA. I'll give this one a shot as a test run, if it passes I'll carry my other one. If not then I haven't really lost but 2.99 shipping.

    Thanks for posting. Never had a tactical pen before, and this seems like a cheap way to try. Besides, I write a lot and so go through a pile of pens.

    If you go through that many, you may be interested getting them from Pen Island. I think they have a website.

    If I buy one, I'm likely to take better care of it. But I always have pen in my pocket (engineer), and sometimes it might get beat up. But I've learned to RARELY lend out even a cheap pen. Or if I do, I hang around close, if I want to have a chance of getting it back.

    You got the badge holder, too?

    Check it out, if you don't mind, and let me know what the two sliding tabs are on the back. I don't have my badge on me, although I could stick my license in it to see what they're for.

    Hmm. I guess it holds two cards.

    The mechanisms have back and front listed on them.

    ETA: Ha! It does. Neat! I assumed it was just a badge holder. It's a double badge holder. I need to find another badge. Lol.

    Yeah, right. Who am I kidding?

    Yeah, I clicked the link at the top to go find the info on the badge holder and it added another discount (free) pen to my cart.

    Badge holder is pretty slick. But, it didn’t take either of the items I needed to put in it. It’s the membership card and lock combo card for PHA, and they’d both been DIY-laminated before being mailed out. Had to trim both up pretty good, to the point the card just fell out of one of the laminating pockets. Taped up the bottom and reinserted it. Should work well.

    I gave the badge holder to my wife, after removing it from the lanyard. She's going to keep her DL, CWP, and another card in it.
