RECENTLY

Just recently, on this very subject, DW and I had someone knocking on our RV units door at 11;00 pm. This was in a gated RVpark, which is quite out of the norm. After answering the door, of course bertha was right at hand, the gentleman needed to use my cell phone. Later on around 5:00 am, another knock on my door, this time bertha was there again as we answered the door, this time I did not open it at all, but answered his call thru the door. Suppose he may have bertha's cocking noise because he soon departed the camp site. Found out later the cops found him thru the phone number he used on my cell phone...Yes, carry protection at all times..

Rving is no different than being at home. We live in a small rural addition. I have protection here and there. Here if you ring my door bell,we don't know who you are. In the camper,if you knock on my door same thing especially after dark. Mr. Kimber will be at hand. I will protect me and mine. Hope to never need it, but wouldn't be without it either. We went on a month long trip and carried every where we went. In California,didn't carry,but it was at hand when we were stopped at a camp ground. Concealed means concealed.

Could not agree more and could not have said it better.

I'm not talking or saying there no, or less crime here !
All I'm saying is the gun thing is at completely other level of thinking & reasoning in the US.
And you guys in the US have way way more guns in circulation than here in Canada.
That's all .

Black thanks for clearing that up. I have meet several Canadians that wish they could have access to more firearms. In fact I made friends with a retired LEO that keeps his handguns in the states at a friends because it's such a PIA to own them in Canada. Is that an exception or do you think their are a lot of Canadians that would like the laws relaxed? Not making a point here just curious.

It is a touchy subject here also.
Some would like the laws relaxed and more US like.
On the other hand, others would like it even more strict.
So honestly I could not really say.
I have been raised away from fire arms...Grand-pa, and Dad were no hunters and against it.
I don't own a fire arm either, so, I'm not the best person to give an honest answer to your question.
All I was saying is...it would never even cross my mind to bring a fire arm with me while camping...
Maybe I have pink glasses on...but, being the third generation on this farm, we never used or needed a gun or been in a situation where it would have been nice having one.
And I am 150% sure, that I am not the only Canadian in this situation
With that being said everyone , and happy camping !

How many of you....
-purchase car, home, life insurance,
-carry a spare tire in your truck, car
-lock your doors at night or while you are gone
-look both ways before you cross the street
-save some money for a rainy day
-go to the doctor for a check up
-love, hug, and say goodbye to family before a long trip


Let's face it, we all are concerned for the well being of ourselves, our family and friends. I for one never leave home without it and especially while away from home in the motorhome. I am 36 and I've never had to file an insurance claim, change a flat tire, but I intend to be ready for the day I need to, this includes protecting myself or my family from harm.

Further more I appreciate and honor those who go above and beyond to serve our country and protect those who they don't even know. This country was built with the hard work and sacrifice of others. I thank Veterans and those in active service.

To what extent do you prepare?

I always assume everyone is prepared to protect themselves and expect the same assumption to be afforded to me.

Black thanks for the insight and the honest opinion. It's as I said very nice to have a discussion on RVing and firearms without all the drama. I love firearms and almost the first question I ask a new CH is where is the closest shooting range. I gave up hunting years ago as we just couldn't consume what I shot so I just enjoy poking holes in paper with expensive projectiles. It's what I like. I hope to enjoy some camping in Canada this year of course leaving the firearms at a gun shop close to the boarder.
