Scatter these around the perimeter of your camp. If anything (man or animal) steps on one of these, a sharp loud "pop" is heard...loud enough to scare the begeezus out of the intruder and loud enough to alert security that someone unauthorized is close by without severing a limb or causing any major flesh damage.

       They would have to be louder and more sensitive and weather proof than traditional Bang-Snaps.   

       No blowing off of kids limbs after the war!

       A standard cap gun might be a bit louder. I think they should be as loud as a firecraker at least.

       lay a path all round the camp, about 2 feet wide and fill it with rice crispies or coco pops. about all they are good for :)

       Sadly, the intent of land mines is to inflict harm when your soldiers are not around, not to merely alert them that someone approaches.   

       Land mines need to be included in the international war crimes treaties, as they are just as indiscriminate and harmful to civilian populations as nerve gas.

       When I read the headline, I thought this was going to be "cap land mines" for your neighborhood cap-gun wars. Ah, those were the days.
