Sorry mate, it was dark when I got back home.  :(
Compromise: I bring it to school and take a pic there?

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

Nice one Pabs. Was that some special edition?

 :like:

Btw, the one I posted here (the chrome one below) is a twist action mechanism. Works flawlessly since 27 years.
I cannot find new ones though  :dunno:

It was the only version the pen shop in Dublin had. :(
It's literally just a plastic gem glued on, I'm sure it can be persuaded to come off. :whistle:
But I like it, so I won't. :D

Oh, just remembered there's a cheaper version of the cap-o-matic with a plastic body. :dwts: steer clear!

Is it a real ruby?  :o

Anyways, I don't like plastic ones either. Fisher Space Pen and Plastic doesn't seem to fit together for me.

I’ve carried a Fisher Bullet for years.  Never a problem.  The clip is a necessity to keep the pen from rolling.

Me too dmattaponi. I hope they will keep up the quality  :tu:
Even well established companies products seem to degrade in quality these days.

... if you didn't read it all, the 27year old refill that failed me was used up already. Someone took it and put the empty one back in. I wonder who...  :think:

Agreed, and no I hadn’t read the comment on the empty cartridge.  Lol, that’s funny...well at least to a guy whose pen is full of ink :-)

I’ve had several Fisher Bullets, and have lost a couple of them over the years as well.  I think my favorite pen arrangement at the moment is actually a Parker Jotter with a Fisher refill in it.  All the benefits of a Fisher refill in a pen that is durable, retractable, inexpensive, and has a clip that won’t accidentally come off...

Great suggestion, I love using the refill in other hosts, it's my go to for my TiBolt, not the smoothest of writers but it'll write on damn near anything.  :tu:

I love my Fisher pens.  I always had one in the Navy with me.  The came in very handy when a Sailor would ask you to sign something in the passageway (using wall to put it against), especially if wet or greasy which was common.

But I need to get a new bullet.  When Fisher (my dog) was a puppy he must of thought the pens were his because he chewed the end of both bullet pens I owned so much that the caps wouldn’t stay on.

I love my Fisher bullet pens....but they do slip out of my pocket easily. I've lost a couple. Maybe I should stop taking the clips off them.....?  :whistle:

Somewhere in the mountains of Afghanistan there is a blue anodized Fisher bullet pen with my name and rank engraved on it. If found, please return to owner. Reward offered.
Maybe you need to get a bullet with jump ring, a trekker, or backpacker(?)so you have a ring to put a lanyard thru so you don’t lose them.

Loving those stories  :hatsoff:
I see Fisher's got the right name  :D

The Fisher refills come with an adapter still, right?

My edc pen is a small brass one with screw on lid and key ring hole that uses a Fisher refill as well. I love being able to use the refills.

I recently had a Bic Atlantis come apart in my pocket, and apparently the cartridge broke as well. Ink got all over my hands, the pocket of those (new might I add) jeans, and even got on my thigh. I've had my Fisher even go through the wash without ruining my pants OR the pocket.  And the pen was fine afterwards.

Good point Cody!
A metal body and sealed cartridge should be pretty much washing machine proof  :tu:

... sorry about your new jeans  :-\

I've carried numerous Fisher Space Pens or Rite in the Rain Pens (rebadged Fisher) over the last couple years and no issues. Anytime I had a defect, the company was very good with fixing things if I contacted them.  :tu:

I knew my wife was a keeper when she transitioned from calling it a knife thingy to a multi-tool.

Good to hear that their warranty service is dependable as well  :tu:
I've never hear about Rite in the Rain Pens before, thanks Joe  :hatsoff:
