    Williams Tactical Key Unlocks Self-Defense

    Like a lot of people, I’ve sometimes wondered how I would fare if I had to fight somebody off armed only with my keys. Women, unfortunately, have much more occasion to wonder about things like that, but the efficacy of the technique has pretty much been debunked.

    Ideal Conceal: A Real Gun That Looks Like a Smartphone

    For the discreet gun-owner who doesn’t want everyone in the room to know he has a gun (should this hypothetical individual actually exist), there’s Ideal Conceal, a kind of transforming pistol that when it’s holstered in your pocket looks all the world like a garden variety smartphone—but it actually fires bullets with lethal force.

    UZI Tactical Pens Are Mightier Than the Sword

    In the 1973 film Blade, Detective Tommy Blade (not to be confused with the vampire hunter Blade, that’s a completely different Blade) uses a small gun that looks like a pen to kill a guy who’s been going around beating young women to death in New York City. I only bring it up because I […]
