I'm retired from a long career in Law Enforcement.
I'd leave it home, as a Yahoo isn't going to give you time to go unlock the case and load the weapon.
Besides, if some one is drugged up your going to have to hit him in a vital spot to put him down immediately as a .22 will only pi$$ him of if you don't.
It's also very unwieldy in your soon to be Scamp
If you're proficient with a hand gun that would be better than a long gun.
Personally, I think you would be better off buying some pepper spray.
I camp in bear country so I have a large container of bear spray.
In all my years of camping the only time I was bothered by Yahoos was Lake Shasta 25 years ago.
They were all college kids getting drunk and singing all night.
I've never had anything stolen or been bothered by anyone other than the drunk singers.
CW, I hope you have as much enjoyment from your new Scamp
as I've had over the years.
