That's one subject where we're totally opposites.
Not all of us Americans are gun toting folks.

No opinion, just wish to advise there very are strict laws in Canada respecting firearms so if your travel is to enter Canada anywhere leave the firearm behind. Undeclared handguns will put you in jail... Safe travels.

X2 But I have a question also, has anyone EVER had to use this type of protection while camping, or is it really just to many movies. I am only in my 65th year and have been camping as long as I can remember both in the UK and North America and have never seen or heard of any problem that required violent circumstances, seen arguments over noise that always get resolved easily.

Well, I too am 65yrs. We have got to remember that violence (not so much crime itself) has gotten much worse as time marched on. I think people are desensitized by all the glorified killing in the movies and TV. That's just me.

I was a Cleveland Police officer for 25 years. And while I didn't cover any campgrounds, I can say that there were many, many, many odd ball crimes, violence, etc in places you might not have expected them. And for the victim's, it only takes one odd ball occurrence.

There are an awful lot of folks out there with permits and they're not the ones in the news. And when they are, it's usually that they assisted in preventing a violent crime.

In this day and age where some folks would rather kill you for a five dollar bill, I sure would like to be protected.

I am very grateful that those type of people don't go camping

okay, off the soap box.

Protection

Although I also have a permit, I don't carry while camping because of a simple rule

camping + alcohol = good
Firearms + alcohol = bad

Never consume alcohol while in possession of a firearm.
I had a situation that happened and I was very happy I had a weapon with me. The same two that stalked me tried to carjack a car. I always carry and always aware of my surroundings. Legal law abiding citizens are not the problem. The criminal element will always have an illegal weapon. Be prepared.
As for Canada. It is their country and you must abide by their laws. If I ever go to Canada again I will be leaving my weapons at home.
Funny thing is I have only been robbed in Canada.

Wait! What? We aren't talking about Broadswords & Battle Axes???


Seriously though, there are many forms of protection!!

Some even eat a lot and take over the couch!

No matter what your preference is its important to feel safe and most importantly BE SAFE!!
