Ditto.

Out of all of the states that we traveled through in 2012 for the Goshen Rally, only Maryland did not recognize my carry permit. Had to stow my piece in the trailer while in Maryland. There are reciprocity conceal carry websites that I always check before traveling.

Even though you can carry in a certain state, many state parks do not allow guns...period. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park last year in South Carolina, and even though SC recognized my carry permit, the State Park stated "no guns".

Y'all be very careful with this thread. If gun rights are debated, then the thread will be closed. I have already had to edit out 1 sentence of the OP because of that mention.

Yes I do pack “heat” but I only bring one bullet. Barney taught me the “one bullet” theory at the first Goshen Rally in 2012. He also taught me techniques that turned my hands into “lethal weapons.”

We plot our travel where my Georgia weapons permit has reciprocation. My RV is also my bugout ride, if that tells you anything.

DW and I both have our CCW permits. Always with us and depending on state law is what dictates where they are stored.

As the OP mentions in the topic "RV's and Self Defence" is a concern to us all. Now "Packing Heat" is one option but can be scary for everyone involved. Knowing when you are being threatened and the level or response to defend yourself can be difficult as a Kalamazoo police officer found out while visiting Calgary.

I prefer to travel in states that have the "stand your ground" law's and the option to shoot if a forceable felony is in progress. In our Sunseeker we built a AR safe in the storage compartment under the master bed. Gives me a a piece of mind traveling through the open country knowing that if we ran into any serious trouble that my wife and I could lay down a serious assault to crush anyone or group that meant harm to our family.

Pepper spray is illegal but as I understand it, if the container states bear spray on the outside it is OK.

When we go on 'Springbreak' or summer vacations, I do make plans for states that have reciprocal laws. I go on each states web sites and read up on their gun laws and print off the regulations and have them in my tow vehicle (some LEOs do not know their state laws or how to tuck their shirts in). To make absolutely sure of the conceal and carry laws and open carry laws, I will also call the state police and talk with them and also the county sheriff of where we will be camping. Some towns (Denver) have more restrictions than the rest of the state and I do not want to risk a ticket or confrontation that is easily avoidable. It is lawful to open carry in state parks where I live, but in other states it is not and I must know that and respect that. Be a quite sheepdog, not a barking fool.
