|Squirrels Bane Loves Camping|
For simple personal security I usually have my Glock 21. I also have a 16 inch Mossberg 500 that fits neatly in my backpack as well as an Armalite AR-7.
Other than that I have found that suppressed guns are great for camping trips. Especially my .22LR handgun and rifle. This pic is my Ruger 10/22 with integral suppressor. I just got a new scope for it. It's a 3x to 9x zoom. Perfect for this rifle.
It's fun to chase cans. You can carry a huge pile of ammo easily and you don't have to even schlep hearing protection!
--And don't forget a good sling!
