Small arms? Great big arms!
I have read this same discussion on other boards where people argue this topic down to the bone. and almost always it is a split where half the people would carry heck some would have cruise missles if they could! The other half say it only encourages more violence and gets you into trouble with foreign authorities. You are better off traveling in packs without guns etc.
Myself if I were to venture into the areas where that stuff goes on (Africa, Asia sometimes the Carrib, you can be assured that my "Flare" gun, the Mossberg Mariner 12 gage would likely be right close by.
My personal feeling on this is that it is "Better safe than sorry", Trust in the lord but keep the powder dry", And it is easier to beg forgiveness than it is for permission"
So not a small arm but an Arm none the less! Not to say that I wouldn't have a handgun around as well. But then again I grew up with guns and guns are very much a part of my life. So it is natural for me, I even carry a pistol camping, but in Colorado where I grew up there are a lot of things in the mountains that can eat you! You are not on the top of the food chain there.
