Some just can't keep their weird politics out of the OPs simple non political question about drill motor for stabilizers.
I like the yellow cordless drill motor. Its easy to spot when I leave it on the ground.

But it's all relevant. We've had 11 maniac waving gun incidents in this one single state park during the last 2 days over drill motors, 16 over loud music, 5 over yapping chihuahuas, 7 over dogs pooping, and 4 over bucket lights in trees.

I use a 20v DeWalt drill. I like it better than an impact as it make nearly no noise.

The problem is looking at drill motor issues thu political glasses when politics (neocon or libs) has nothing to do with the OPs simple question.

A true story:
My brother was on a scouting trip and needed a quick throwdown camp for the night. He drove off the highway on a dirt road across a sagebrush flat a few miles and was having dinner when a car appeared on the horizon. it got closer and closer, stopping about 50 feet away, and the fella started setting up camp. My brother walked over to him wearing his sidearm, and told him "If I wanted neighbors, I would not have camped here". The fella left in a hurry.

The point is, that if you want to camp near others... You gotta understand that someone will annoy you....Just as you are sure to annoy someone as well.


As we are driving away, I'd be on the phone to the cops telling them how there is some crazy guy flashing a gun at people passing by...probably won't send him to jail but I'm sure he will love spending a couple hours discussing with the cops.


Good luck with that. Like many remote places we camp in, there is no phone service. Any problems you have, you gotta deal with it yourself.
And yes sidearms are a fact of life in those situations.


I don't have a problem with carrying a gun. I grew up with guns. While I don't carry, I have several friends who do.

You were the one who felt the need to point out he was carrying a gun, I took that to mean he implied a threat with it. Otherwise, why would the guy leave in a hurry?

Probably the same reason he tried to camp on top of my brother... He was scared
I really believe that the reason so many camp in campgrounds within spitting distance of one another is that they are scared to be in the wild alone.... So they congregate on top of each other... The thing is, that is their problem... Others do not appreciate the intrusion on their space, and are upfront about it.... And we don't care if it bothers anyone. As for the firearm, you are jumping to a conclusion. It is standard fare in remote camping... Though we are not scared to be away from civilization, we realize that we need to be prepared for whatever comes our way... If that scares you... Too bad

Comes across more as playing the internet keyboard warrior.

Either he was using it to tacitly threaten the guy or there was not point in adding it to the story.

It was an accurate description. We always wear sidearms when in remote areas.. Would it have made you feel better if I had left that out?

Whether or not he was "using it to tacitly threaten the guy" or not has no bearing on whether or not it was added to the story. Don't conflate two separate events, the camping trip, and the forum post.
