My son and I were driving through Badger Pass, on our way home in a severe blizzard with white-out conditions. On the way down the pass, I could not stop in time for a curve, due to ice on the road, and skidded into the embankment, out of sight from the road. Calling for help on my cell phone, I was told that all search efforts would not take place until the storm subsided enough for there to be enough visibility to find me; I was told to stay put.
Forty-eight hours later, I heard a snowmobile search party nearby, but with the doors frozen shut and a couple of hundred pounds of snow on the car, I could not get out of the car. My son reminded me that I had my SureFire Pen in the glove compartment, so I used its glass-breaker tailcap to break the tempered glass window of the door. It shattered with very little effort—thank goodness, because I was very weak and scared. We were able to dig our way out, and we both survived the near-death experience. Now I always carry my SureFire pen with me.
Thank you, SurFire. Never stop making and improving your outstanding tactical equipment.

As a police officer, sometimes the tool that you use most is your pen. For this reason, I chose to purchase the SureFire Pen II. Not only is the Pen II an excellent writing instrument and sobriety testing tool, with its highly polished tip, it's a handy little kubaton, as well. But by far the best thing about this pen is showing other officers, who are SureFire fans too, how big of a fan I am by owning it. The Pen II may not have saved my life (yet), but it has made all the paperwork I have to do much more bearable. Thanks, SureFire.
