    No clip. I carry mine mostly as a backup, either in a pocket on me or in computer bag. Sometimes I have it on me by itself. But I don't write with it much unless it is the only pen on me. (It is a good pen, but I tend to prefer Parker ballpoints now and for the past number of years.)

    No clip. Too unreliable. I’ve lost a bunch of bullets because I thought they were secure. Now that I don’t depend on the clip, they tend to stick around longer...

    No clip... carried loose in pocket. Lost a couple when I relied on the clip. Current one is going on 25 years old.

    No clip loose in pocket next to my wallet. The wallet keeps it standing upright most of the time. Works with the telescoping pen also.

    Easy to have the best of both worlds. Fisher refills usually are packaged with an adapter for the end so that they work fine in Parker pen bodies! I always replace my Parker refills with Fisher refills; also in any other pen that takes Parker refills!

    L'chaim!

    No clip on any of my Fisher bullet pens. Don't trust them.

    Clip on but carry it as a backup in my front pocket. Lost a couple relying on the clip so now it’s just a convenient addition.

    Bullet worked great clipped for years until the clip popped off and got lost. Now the bullet works great without the clip.

    My EDC pen is usually the telescoping pen. No way to attach a clip to it.

    I don't think I've ever had a clip on a space pen. If I have one on me it is probably in some sort of pocket organizer.

    A drop of gorilla glue keeps that clip right in place! Use mine daily!

    always with a clip.

    The last couple I have gotten seem to have had the clip glued or otherwise fixed in place (in comparison to previous ones where it easily popped off), so have so far been reliable for me.

    Ultimately I tend not to rely on the clip to hold it in place fully, but it adds a little extra security when doing something like popping it under the rubber band holding a notebook shut. In a pocket loose as well, I also find it makes the pen slightly harder to lose by making the shape that bit less slippery and liable to escape from wherever I put it.

    I broke out the thread injector last night and will see how this works out. It’s about a 3/4” piece of 1” elastic from the all things sparkly section at wally world. I like it so far, although it did ad some bulk to the wallet. [​IMG]
