Camping Gear: Weapons Edition

When you’re preparing for a camping trip one of the most important things to consider is what weapons you should bring. Factors from location to duration, to weather to who is going should be considered. And different situations may call for different weapons to ensure that you and your family are properly prepared for whatever you may encounter on your camping adventure.

Blades

There are a ton of options when considering what type of knife to bring along on your camping trip; big or small, specialized or multi-focused, one or many. While many blades might be perfect for a specific situation, it is entirely appropriate to bring along different types so that you can handle any given situation. And one of the great things about knives is that they are small and lightweight enough to pack with relative ease.

Multi-tool: A multi-tool like those offered by Leatherman are always a good item to pack when you’re adventuring. In many emergency situations they can take the place of almost an entire toolbox, and these tools are great for performing minor repairs or getting you out of tough situations.

Large Blades: Larger blades like machetes offered from Knife Depot can be handy. Not only are they great for trimming away small trees or branches in your camping area, they can also help you find hidden areas covered by years of forest growth while hiking through uncharted terrain.

Small Blades: Apart from the ability to help you with repairs or modifications that need to be made in the field, they are also great accessories to have to pass the time by whittling or carving.

Guns

Rifle or other: Having a gun along on your camping trip can have several benefits. First, ensure that you have the right weapon for the situation and the people that will be joining you on your trip. A .22-caliber rifle like those that Ruger manufactures are great for protection, and will help keep you safe from predators. A rifle can also pose a hazard in the wrong hands, so make sure that everyone going on the trip is educated about the proper handling and usage procedures. Also remember to bring whatever bullets needed for use.

Air rifle: An air rifle can be a great alternative if you don’t need high-powered protection. Air rifles are great for practicing marksmanship among all age levels and air rifles don’t pose a large health hazard if an accident should happen. Keep the family entertained and host events like a shooting tournament to have fun while at the campsite. Just make sure that with any gun or rifle, if you are going to use it always know what might be beyond your immediate line of sight.

Whatever you do and wherever you go on your camping trips, always ensure that you are both well equipped to handle any situation, and well informed on how to use any and all weapons that you are packing with you. This way you can ensure that you have a successful and fun camping adventure every time.
