One of the things I don’t miss about the Middle East is being the occasional camel cuspidor.
You would not believe how far and how accurately a camel can hork a semi-digested glob of yuck. Or how little provocation a camel requires to begin offensive expectoration. Brr.
Well, some self-defense-minded folks in Switzerland have apparently micro-sized a camel for those folks who — for whatever reason — might be a skosh averse to just shooting opportunistic critters dead.
Kimber of 1911 fame has seen fit to import and distribute these little darlin’s under the name “Guardian Angel”, and there seems to be a stouter version called a “Jet Protector”.
Huh. No imagination. I prefer “Pocket Camel”.
What these little gadgets do is shoot two 90 EmPeeHaitch globs of OC — and in imitation of the wily camel –the user of this little widget is hopefully going to put these 90MPH globs right smack into the face of whichever critter happens to be taking up space downrange.
