I have an air-soft pistol I pack with me while driving. It's legal and can be purchased without a licence. I drive on paved roads in a small subdivision where I live and also on the back rounds around us (in the woods) and it is there for protection against anything that may threaten myself of my horse - loose dogs, bears, coyotes, people, etc.
We keep a paintball gun in the house for dogs that get into our trash. Sends a nice message back to the owner :) and doesn't hurt the dog in the long term.
