Within the U.S.A., always. Interestingly, those that do not carry a weapon benefit from lawbreakers not knowing for sure who is armed and who is not. Antique and replica(muzzleloaders) handguns are not covered by the same rules as modern handguns, and may be legally carried in most any state. Many OTR drivers carry them for this reason.

No not in my RV, but, I carry one on me, most of the time now days. This is a scary world. It is for safety. I have a concealed weapon permit, most other states reconize it. I alway check but I still carry. The boys and I camp alone. No matter what you do, please keep safety in mind,

I don't mind saying either way since we are not fully identified by name, address and phone number. I do have a concealed weapon permit and I do carry on myself at times including to keep and one in the RV ...but not outside of the USA.

As a new member and a past instructor of CHL in Tx I have reviewed past postings. I would hope new members would look up the following posts, they are worth the time in my book.Ron in Colorado 9/13/04, Vaughn 9/11/04, Yianni 9/13/04 not to take away from all the other good posts. Be aware of the things around, even when in the right you will contend with civil law. Fight or Flight? Hope you never need to pick. Walking in a 7-11 type store has always been more threating than any place I have parked my RV. You assume a large responsibility if you carry, and not everyone should, just like those that carry should not all carry a 45. Whatever, if you carry think safety at all times, it is so sad to hear about a child getting shot because they got hold of an unattend weapon. Go to a range, know your weapon and how to use it properly. I do take exception with the term "most states" and laws change. I would let the insurance companies worry about property, never carry when drinking and if words alone can cause you to lose your temper, stay away from all guns. Sept 04 must have been a rough month.

I am sory, but I think carrying guns around is silly.

I know,I know, "You won't think it is silly when.......!" Been there, done that, silly. I suppose it makes the carrier feel "positive" somehow. I don't need it. I don't want it and frankly I would feel a lot safer if people around me didn't.

There, I said it. Deal with it. It is part of growing up.

Growing up?
Silly?

Words that incite a reaction.

OK. Sorry you feel that way. But it is a right that I choose to exercise.

You have every right to carry around a gun and I have every right to think and say it is silly. I think we can agree on this, can't we?

Dan, what Chet was saying is that labelling or name calling without adding other more valuable reasonings or opinions, especially on a subject like this, is designed to incite and doesn't really add much to the conversation.
Here's how a post similar to yours could have been phrased at a friendly conversation around the RV campfire without relying so heavily on calling the act of carrying a gun, and therefore the person carrying it, silly :

I feel carrying a gun while camping in an RV offers so statistically minute a possible benefit, and yet so potentially great an innocent damage, that i really feel it is not warranted, at least for me.

you know,.. something like that

A moderator's work is never done.

Not trying to change anyones outlook. Big responsibility either way you go. Being new at this form, felt the mentioned posts were very well written and worth review by newbies.

My grandson is silly and at 20 months has alot of growing up ahead of him.

Paid to carry for 24 yrs., and was called many things....silly is an improvement. Retirement is grand. May we all be safe, happy and enjoy many more miles down the road.

Excellent! Do you think will hear about "boogymen?"

Until two years ago, the answer was a definate no! However, recent events have caused us to re-think this decision. We have taken up backcountry hiking, and in two years we have been stalked by cats, bears and yes people. There have been several instances in the same two years of maulings by bears and cats, and muggings and rape by people, in the areas we enjoy. So, our opinion has changed. Both of us grew up around firearms, and both have taken safety courses and practice with some regularity (although I don't fire 200-300 rounds per week!) and we are confident of our ability. Having said all of the above, the firearm is safely and securely stowed when in the RV; ammo and gun are seperate whenever anyone else is with us (kids, grandkids, friends) and it generally only comes out when we get ready for the backcountry. Do I like the idea of "carrying?" No. but I like getting mauled by a bear even less.
As it regards riff-raff; we generaly camp with a group of friends, and some of the posts on this site have given several of the steps we take to be secure. But I do feel very strongly about firearms, this decision came after much soul-searching and long fireside discussions. Oh, and I NEVER go camping during the rifle hunt! Way too many overserved uncontrolled "hunters" out there.
