Going to Vancouver or Calgary won't help. Everyone who knows anything knows that the targets that have to be hit are all in Canada.

Hey Gene you can come up to my house, I have a secret gun room with enough fire arms to keep anyone at bay. Wait, if you are not Gene I'm only joking, I don't have a room full of fire arms.

Just like nuclear devices, projectile weapons are from the past. Good for a museum maybe.

Particle beams are so cool.

Exactly, those things are so dated...Next thing you know, folks will be wanting to pull their old magic wands out of the closet...

Come on people..Particle beams are definitely cool. Of course, I hear the accelerators that they require to actually work, do weigh a bit on the heavy side, and would create quite a power draw on the campground.

You know, a magic wand does seem like a better choice in the long run. Light weight, stores easily when on the road, can double if you happen to see an orchestra that needs to be led...and no need to actually disintegrate anyone, you can simply turn them into a frog or even better, a pink flamingo! hmmmm, now where did I put that old thing??

"Abbra Ca Dabra", no wait.. "Open Sesame".. nope... "Help Me Wanda. Help, Help me Wanda".."no that's not it either..dang I hate getting old...

Well if you get a Particle beam I'm coming to your house.

I wish I had a seriously vintage trailer (circa late 1800's) so I could put a giant Tesla coil on it...or make it into a tesla coil, and shock other cars on the highway..

It would be fun to watch you in a traffic jam after dark, maybe on Christmas Eve.

I'll bet none of those pesky neighbors have a Tesla Coil.

What about a Flex Capacitor. Tesla Coils are so 80's.

Lets get this thread back on track guys. We're supposed to be talking about third world nuclear capabilities here.

But where are you going to get the plutonium to generate the 1.21 gigawatts of electricity?

Wouldn't flex capacitors be the ultimate 80's technology? Can Doc Brown and McFly chime in here?

Here is something simpler and more subtle.

First, insulate the Airstream's aluminum shell from the frame. Then attach a large belt to one or more wheels in such a manner that the rotating wheel(s) drive the belt. Voilą!, you have a van de Graaff Generator.

Anyone that comes close gets a startling, but probably non lethal shock.
