I vow to add the following items to my travel checklist:
Pepper Spray - I plan to buy another Kimber Guardian Angel Pepper Blaster that is for travel only.
Knife (one that is not too scary) - And I'm going to learn how to use it.
The new items will always be in my suitcase (along with my travel headlamp). I always have to check my bag (too many lotions and potions) so there is no reason not to have something for self-defense. I would prefer the Glock 26, but I have a feeling my paycheck supplier would frown upon it. I can see it... "Hey Mr. Bossman, I'll meet you at the gate. I need to declare my firearm."
PS - I apologize upfront for beating a dead horse. Notice a teasing brush is not on the list.
