How many people carry a firearm in their rv? Been telling the wife lots of people have a gun on board just in case a problem comes up and before people start going off I know as a last resort but sometimes people or animals leave you no choice.

I have a Mossburg 500 12 gauge shotgun with an 18" barrel and a pistol grip in the bedroom of the motor home with very easy access. I also have a Kel-Tec 380 Auto for my truck (toad) which is small and fits within my hand, It is also used as a second weapon by many cops (Where I got mine used.) I has a 5 shot clip and I have two. In hundreds of nights, I have never felt like we needed them, but it was nice to know. I have a concealed carry permit that is valid in about 30 states. The first time we ever stayed at Wal-Mart, I got out the shotgun and laid it by the bed. The next morning when I counted 6 other RV's in the parking lot, I realized it wasn't necessary.
I would recommend that if you decide to carry a weapon at least take your wife to the range to get her comfortable with shooting it. Also decide on a safe place to shoot it in the floor to scare off an intruder.
