You can carry a gun through Canada quite legally, Mexico is the no-no on anything. Read my post (second half) about Canada gun laws on page 3 of this thread, and how to comply. The links to the Canadian agencies are there too.

For Florida residents, it is relatively easy to get a concealed carry permit. Florida has reciprocity with a number of states. Florida is an interesting state. As a certified law enforcement officer, I went to buy a new duty weapon and had to wait three days to pick it up. If I had a Florida concealed weapons permit, I could have left with the pistol that day. I will definitely get a CW permit before I retire and hit the road full time.

I don't carry a firearm but I do have an NRA sticker on the window. With the gun laws the way they are it is the good guys that get in trouble.

It's really a simple matter - If I were to put a gun of any kind in our RV, my wife would't get in it.

Since I have to carry one at <span class="ev_code_RED">work</span> every day I prefer to have one of the dogs carry while we are out RVing. Every other Tuesay it is the other dog's turn to carry. Problem is I sometimes forget which one is the other dog

I heard you cannot take a pistol into Canada, but what about a rifle or shotgun for protection against wildlife. I wouldn't shoot any animals, but I thought I heard you could take them in for this reason.

Here we go again!!!!!! This is one of those topics that gets tons of replies and folks all up in an uproar. I think the the legality of this has already been discussed so I will simply tell you that if I am on the road you can guarntee I have at least one firearm with me, most of the time two. I have a concealed carry permit for my home state, but regardless where I am at I always have a firearm with me. I am not the type to bring this up in conversation. Nobody needs to know I have such a thing unless they mean me and my family harm. You see my family is the most important thing in this world to me and nobody is going to harm them if I can help it. I am not a parranoid person, but this world is not getting any safer. When you are traveling you are a prime target to thiefs. Think about it, most people on vacation are carrying large sums of cash, your guard is down, sometimes older folks are traveling by themselves, most campgrounds have no phones close by after hours, although cel phones are helping that now. Travelers have always been somebody that thiefs target. As far as the legality goes. I will always protect my family first and worry about the law second.
