              Unarmed. In an area where everyone you will encounter has access to military firepower.

                  I'd do it. Id be more concerned with the camel spiders, scorpions and cobras.

                              Sounds like another all nighter out on the Range in NW Florida. No. Wait. I'm armed to the teeth. Snakes and spiders beware.
