Protection RVING Opened or Concealed Carry

We just purchased a S&W MP40 CORE 5" with a Leupold 3.5 red dot optic sight. We are also going through the classes for cancelled carry. Does any one that is on the road a lot feel the need to carry rather open or cancelled?

I think a lot of us carry. There are many places where I camp where the cell phones won't work and even if I did need to call the police it might take a long time for them to arrive.

Yes I do have a conceal carry permit. I just hope and pray I never need it just like the other tools and the fire extinguisher.

I know what you mean, most of the parks I go to are federal and State but after hours the Rangers are gone.

You don't need a carry permit to have protection in an RV. The conceal carry permits are for having a weapon on your person or within reach while driving.

I have the permit for my job, so I can carry while I'm driving around without the RV. Like today, I'll be working in East St Louis area.

We have a opened carry in Louisiana, but 38 other States accept Louisiana's cancelled carry permit. The ones that don't I won't be traveling to.

When in the RV a lot of states have different laws as the RV once set up is a domicile rather than a vehicle. Having said that there's always a Mossberg JIC in the RV as we start the season early and end late, sometimes there's no one around. The one thing I believe is that if ever needed it probably will be against a four legged invader rather than a two.

The judge is good for the RV but too big for personal carry. I have a small MP9 shield For work time.

Don't laugh...I have a flare gun with a .38 adapter. When traveling and crossing state lines, the adapter is removed and stored separately.
