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.

Intersting thread.
Safest place: out an open door, window or ceiling vent. Relatively easy to rescreen.

Something else one must anticipate.
Ever fired something inside a small space? Be prepared for everyone (including pets) to be painfully deaf for a bit.

DH packs a large revolver from another era. I'm much more comfortable with the 12-gauge. Never had to use either while in the rig.
Have had great fun target practicing at various shooting ranges and privately owned boonies over the years. cool.gif

All get packed in a safe (with family) when we head for Canadian points of destination. So in those cases, we are 'armed' with a ball bat and mace. Feeling lucky? dry.gif

Pepper spray etc is very legal in Canada. Up here we use it on bears though.
