    Just got my first Hinderer pen, an extreme duty. Beautiful pen and love the design, look and feel.

    Anyone know how these guys do with TSA/trying to carry on a plane?

    Sorry if this has been asked before but couldn't find anything through search.

    I have a S&W tactical pen and I have had them look at it several times but there is nothing against the rules about them. I always leave it in my computer bag with the pen side out.

    I carry my Investigator pen with me when I travel and it's never been an issue. I've had TSA agents take it out and inspect it but once they see it's a pen they slip it back no questions asked.

    I have never had any trouble with my Investigator, that said I have tried to fly with one of my E.D.'s.
    Perhaps obvious but, I might be judicious with tip selection if you have some of the optional ones.

    I cannot speak to the Extreme Duty but can comment on the Investigators.

    Carry-on; I tuck most everything from my pockets into an external zipper pocket on my bag (that I keep empty just for this purpose). It allows me to go thru the security screening holding my pants up with nothing in my pockets. Investigator goes through without a hiccup equipped with standard bullet-style tip. After the screening, resupply my pockets and take my seat.

    I also have been in many establishments, clubs and such across the US that disallow knives, but Investigator pens have never been an issue.
