Might have been me who posted a bunch of links.

I have relatives in CAN and most hate handguns but have shot with a couple in matches, somewhere between Windsor and Toronto...been a long time now. And transport into Canada for shooting matches was not that hard many years ago. There was paperwork required.

However, I have LEGALLY transported a handgun through Canada with the correct paper work. Granted the circumstances I had were different than 99 percent of the people on this site and a few times were considered official business. But have checked on transporting, now as a citizen a handgun through Canada to AK. And it is a lot more difficult than before; they made it sound like it would be about as enjoyable as a colonoscopy, but was told it was not impossible.

But no more mention of CAN....from ME!

What are the laws and thoughts about bringing a gun (in the camper) on trips through different states?

I find this hard to believe but was wondering what the forum folks think on this subject.

Please no nasty comments.

Thanks.
Oh boy, good question. I traveled last year through 11 states and many had VERY different laws regarding hand guns (I had two pistols with me, no long guns). I have had a concealed license in Texas for several years now, and didn't want to run the risk of trouble if stopped. We have a safe in the Rockwood and the hand guns went into it for a couple of states with a lot of restrictions. I suggest an app for your phone that I use: CCW - Concealed Carry 50 State Guide by Workman Consulting; I am sure you can find it in Google or iTunes. By having it on your phone, it is always available for a quick consult as you start into the next state. It updates regularly and is pretty straight forward in the explanations of the laws. If you carry hand guns then I also suggest a good gun safe in the RV of whatever type you have; failing that, one that locks and is not accessible from your seat in the vehicle (mine is under the back seat of the truck). Hope this helps.

You may want to check with your local law enforcement, they may give you an answer or tell you hoe to check.

Problem with that is they will most likely only know for the state they are in. What we can do here in PA will get you arrested in NJ. No agency will put themselves into that legal trouble if they tell you wrong. They will probably tell you to call each states attorney general.

Virginia Non-Resident CCW

It is noteworthy that Virginia offers non-resident CCW permits which are currently recognized (reciprocity) in thirty one states.

Hmmm. In the ole days I wouldnt travel unless I had a "combat load" with me. That was post Ranger Batt days.

Now I do travel with, at a minuimum, my concealed carry with extra mags and on occasion, my tactical shotgun that I keep in a concealed location in the fiver.

So far, I've only traveled to states that recipricate with Florida so not an issue. A few members have posted good links for info.

From Maryland.gov/state police
Can I legally transport firearms interstate?
​​Yes, under Title 18, Section 926A, of the United States Code, a person who is not prohibited from possessing, transporting, shipping, or receiving a firearm shall be entitled to transport a firearm for any lawful purpose from any place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm to any place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm if, during such transportation the firearm is unloaded, neither the firearm nor any ammunition being transported is readily accessible or is directly accessible from the passenger compartment. In the case the vehicle does not have a compartment separate from the driver's compartment the firearm or ammunition shall be contained in a locked compartment other than the glove compartment or console.​

You need to first decide why you want to carry a gun. I would assume that the reason is self protection. If this is the reason then a readily-available pistol is what you need. A .40 caliber or 9 mm is good---you don't need a "cannon" nor a pea-shooter. Next you need to learn to use it and get a concealed carry permit. Your states ccp will not be valid in all states. Research the laws of the states you plan to travel through. I'm guessing that even in the most paranoid states like NY, you won't be in trouble if you keep the weapon and the ammo locked up separately. Don't even think of crossing into Canada with any kind of gun. I have never shot anyone and never plan to but I travel with a nice warm fuzzy feeling with mine on my hip.

f5moab,

Thank you. I had it twice on the RV/Car Carry Doc and didn't change it on the Idaho page. I knew what the new law was but didn't get it in the right places. Thank you for pointing out my error. It will be around the 1st before that shows up.

Thank you again and happy RVing. I just have a small pop up that I use for long weekends from late April to mid Oct on the Allegheny River in PA. Retirement means I can go and come as I please now.

DW and I crossed the border into Canada and I think that was the first question asked, do you have a gun. Anyway I for one don't need a gun. I got enough guns in Vietnam, if I don't feel safe I can just leave the area. My thing is let the police carry the guns, they don't need my help. But to each his own. If I know someone is carrying a handgun I tend to avoid them. I like peace myself and just have fun camping
