never worry about self defense because we camp mostly at private campgrounds, when we do the SP we lock everything , my hands are my weapons, and they are pretty quick and rarely let me down.. no match of a gun but if you are close I will take it from you

Web folks - I like the warning!

That said, this has been discussed a number of times on the forum. Often with the result of deleted entries.

A quick search will find most of the entries. Start with the term wasp spray.

All I'm going to say.

I really do not see why this is such a touchy topic? Ultimately protecting ourselves and our property while out looking to enjoy ourselves shouldn't be such a hush hush topic. If someone wants to use method A while legally permitted to do so, or method B of do nothing but watch it is their choice.

While I am out on vacation having a good time with my family IS NOT the time to bother me!

Typically my method of defense is tossing the perp a beer from the fridge though... not many other methods are legal while intoxicated! So I dare you ALL TO BRING IT ON!

When it's Justus girls out camping, we bring the "equalizer" and I'm not talking about a hitch.

CCW. don't advertise but don't leave home without it. That's the retired cop talking.
