    I lost a 3-year-old Fisher telescopic at Walmart last week. It fell into the housing of the checkout conveyor belt. :brickwall: :brickwall: :brickwall:

    Luckily I had a backup at work. ;D Now I need another replacement.

    I had a fellow officer borrow my Cross Tech 3 at a crime scene and she forgot to return it... I stopped at her office and she said she would get it back to me... then called me and said it was missing... so guess this is an indirect loss and hopefully qualifies for this thread...

    this is one of the biggest reasons I use pilot precise v5. nice enough to make for good writing, cheap enough to lend out.
    as far as true-blue, "my fault" loss- never. Keep a pen in your FSP, take it out right before you need it, and put it back when you're done. there's no room for error that way

    I lost 2 S&W Tactical knifes. One fell out in my Jeep, still can't find it. One I lost on training with my local SAR team, another member found it, but I haven't gotten it yet. And lastly I sort of lost a Fisher Space Bullet, I think its in my SAR backpack but can't find it yet :(

    I had a cheap mechanical pencil that I picked up in the parking lot of the gym at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland. It was just a cheap Skillcraft, but I carried that thing around for almost 7 years till it broke and I mis-placed it.

    I've been using my modded zebra 701 (space pen mod) for three semesters so far without losing it. I've gotten straight As too, so it is special to me.

    I received a Fisher Space Pen last year for Christmas and sometime in April it disappeared. I got a couple of Zebras to replace it. I put it on my wish list again this year.

    The good news is a little bird told me ny daughter in law just recently found it in one of her jackets and I'll get it back on Christmas.

    After posting in the Favorite Pen & Pencil thread with the Parker Jotter Gel and Jotter mech pencil, I lost my Jotter Gel. :mad:

    I loved that thing. I've been to 4 places so far looking to replace it and all they have are the ballpoints. :rolleyes:

    I forgot about my bullet pen. I lost the first one, but it turns out I left it in my sister's truck and it went all the way to KY and back while I looked for it for two weeks. I ended up actually losing it for good, but I think I left it at costco when I was returning something. Now I use other folks pens when I sign receipts, and am on bullet number two.

    Just tonight I lost my Pilot G2 after marking up an Italian takeout menu
    to order food.

    Fortunately it's easily replaced. Had the foresight to buy a package of
    them at Staples recently...so I just replaced it now.

    Talk about Synchronicity.....how'd you know I just lost a favorite pen...?

    :laugh:

    Buy the ballpoint and get a gel refill. That's what I did after using the ballpoints for many years.

    I love the gel but they run out quickly.

    I can't use many gels because I've found I'm allergic to them, believe it or not.
