Yes, The Judge is in the bedroom and the Colt 380 auto stays close to me. Don't expect any problems but you never know.

Really, really bad advice...and advice I would like to try to talk you out of. 90% of the time ANY police official can tell from 30 feet away if a body has been moved or not. The remaining 10% where you tried to be all sneaky and stuff WILL be discovered by the M.E. Then you WILL be arrested and you WILL face criminal charges!!!
Your right to shoot people ends when the threat ends. If you shoot the offender and he falls wounded outside your home or runs away then the threat (in most situations) has ended. Further action with your weapon is illegal unless the threat re-appears.

Seriously if you pull the trigger, be prepared to answer why! You are correct about saying you were in fear for your life...but lying will get you in trouble you do not need or want, I assure you.

Honestly IS the best policy!!!!

When you have an intruder in your motorhome, make sure you speak very plainly to let them no that you have called the police and they will be here shortly; Ask them politley to have a seat.

Do not pass GO, do not collect $200.00...Go directly to jail....In other words...DON'T!!!!

The Border Guards at the US and Canadian border would take a VERY dim view on such things....

Maybe worth a new thread. Of those who carry a firearm in their RV, how many hours a year do you practice using the weapon(s) and how many rounds do you fire? What kind of training do you do, ie, bulls eye, pop-ups, silhouette, night or low light, weak hand, etc.

Good points , without practice, that firearm may do more harm than good.

Good question! Perfect practice makes perfect!

This is true, shooting is in fact a perishable skill. I myself try to hit the range once a month and qualify with the county range 2 times a year.

No need for practice with a shotgun, point and pull the trigger.

You can always ask politely if the intruder will let you call 911 before he shoots ya.

I hope I'm not too far off topic and I'm not sure what the moral of the story is but here near Phoenix, last week we had an incident of road rage that resulted in a 56 year old man getting out of his pick up with a gun in his hand and approaching the other (21 yo) driver. The younger man, seeing the gun, pulled his own gun and emptied it into the older man's chest.

I think the investigation is still ongoing but preliminary reports had it as self defense.
