I know some of you own GUNS but this is something to think about...---
If you don't have a gun, here's a more humane way to wreck someone's evil plans for you. Did you know this? I didn't. Never really thought of it before. Guess I can get rid of the baseball bat.
Wasp Spray- A friend who's a receptionist in a church in a high risk area was concerned about someone coming into the office on Monday to rob them when they were counting the collection. She asked the local police department about using pepper spray and they recommended that she get a can of wasp spray instead.
The wasp spray, they told her, can shoot up to twenty feet away and is a lot more accurate, while with the pepper spray, they have to get too close to you and could overpower you. The wasp spray temporarily blinds an attacker until they get to the hospital for an antidote. She keeps a can on her desk in the office and it doesn't attract attention from people like a can of pepper spray would. She also keeps one nearby at home for home protection. Thought this was interesting and might be of use.
On the heels of a break in and beating that left an elderly woman in Toledo dead, self defense experts have a tip that could save your life.
Val Glinka teaches self-defense to students at Sylvania Southview High School For decades, he's suggested putting a can of wasp and hornet spray near your door or bed.
Glinka says, "This is better than anything I can teach them."
Glinka considers it inexpensive, easy to find, and more effective than mace or pepper spray. The cans typically shoot 20 to 30 feet; so if someone tries to break into your home, Glinka says "spray the culprit in the eyes". It's a tip he's given to students for decades.
It's also one he wants everyone to hear. If you're looking for protection, Glinka says look to the spray. "That's going to give you a chance to call the police; maybe get out." Maybe even save a life.
Did you also know that wasp spray will kill a snake? And a mouse! It will! Good to know, huh? And by the way, it will also kill a wasp.!!
It actually kills many varmints including centipedes.
Please share this with all the people who are precious to your life

How about pets??? I drive a sanitation truck occasionally for a friend who owns the company when he's desperate for a driver with a CDL. Now and then my workers hanging off the sides of the truck collecting trash have to deal with unruly loose dogs roaming a neighborhood. Would a good shot of wasp spray repel a really pi$$ed off dog or would it hurt it as well? Don't want to hurt the dog, just send him packing. I carry pepper spray but as stated above, the dog has to get pretty close before I can get a shot of spray at it. I googled this but found no information.
Happy camping!!! See y'all down the road!!!

Wasp spray is a nerve agent, DO NOT USE ON DOGS! A small air horn works wonders on dogs.
