Guns n Ammo

Those of you who carry guns, (pistols, revolvers, rifles, shotgun), do you carry them loaded, loaded with one in the chamber, or empty with ammo, or empty with ammo in another location?

If you asked my son, his response would be; My gun is like my fire extinguisher. It's useless in an emergency if it is empty.

Congratulations on raising a REAL son. He is absolutely right. A gun without bullets is nothing more than something to throw.

Always loaded with one in the chamber. The safest way to carry. Why carry a paper weight? Now is it's not on my side it will be in a safe place and a safe condition but ready when I need it.

No sense carrying a gun for protection if it is unloaded and hidden.

Just a note.

iRV2's rules require gun threads to be RV related, so let's keep the comments related to the RV and not concealed carry.

Thanks.

Part two of that response is something along the lines of "if I'm up and outta the shower, I'm armed".

A gun without bullets is called a club. In the truck or in the trailer, loaded with one in the tube.

An empty gun is only effective in old western movies.....when you throw it at the bad guy!!

I agree with everything that's been said. However, this website, www.handgunlaw.us/ is a good reference to the laws of different states. It's best to be aware of them. Your surroundings will dictate the priority.
