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.

Just know your reciprocity agreements between states based on where your concealed permit is obtained. There are 4 states were I cannot conceal carry, but in one of those I can open carry.

Also take the time to understand the little nuances in the laws. Some states don't allow chambered rounds, even concealed, as an example.

.......oh good night, now my ad banners just lit up with NRA and concealed holster ads.

The carry is a Taurus PT 145 pro. Nice little 3" .45 that hold 10 and isn't big. Tucks in nicely on a hip holster.
In the rig is bigger stuff .......

I kinda look into this like dirty hairy. Why try to conceal a weapon when you can pull out a pistol that no one wants to mess with. But that's me. And yes my weapons inside the trailer are way bigger but we use those for hunting and not "protection"

Vaughn...you're in Maryland, correct? I didn't know you could carry in that state as I'm thinking it's just as bad as Joisey.

I like that idea, we have 2 jet ski's and spend a lot of time in coves for the day and you never know who will show up. I have a little 25 auto I put in the pocket of the cooler just in case, its usually just the 2 of us.

This has been an on going topic. Like some have already said, there are many different laws per state, and many will advise us we should know these laws of the states we plan to travel in, and that is good advise. But, regardless of the law I will always carry. I would rather be "alive" discussing with the judge why I was carrying a weapon in his state, then just another statistic. JMO

What is the saying: "Rather be judged by 12 of your peers, rather than carried by 6"

We're generally with James Bond, Walther PPK, but because of our Alaska trip and crossing the border numerous times in and out of Canada, it's in storage until we get back North in the Spring.

For work a lot of time I carry the little torus p22. Great little gun that hides in my pocket.

You know it's a real shame that we all feel that we need to carry but unfortunately we do. As long as you keep the gun in the RV, you're legal in each state because the RV is your home. That's also true with hotel rooms.

I've onlt gotten in a jam 2 times with having guns with me. #1 was trying to get onto an Air Force base (that didn't work out very well) #2 last year we almost went to Canada while on vacation until I took inventory of weaponry. Canada is a beautiful country but they wouldn't have liked all of what I was carring so we stayed on the U.S. side (1 shot gun, 3 pistols and a taser plus a few hundred rounds of amo)
