I read a couple of pages on the link provided by WahooNC.
Kind of creeps me out the way some people think.
I guess it's like those people who go watch hunting videos on youtube and then complain about the hunters. Do they enjoy being outraged so they watch the videos?
I don't know why they would go there.

I can neither confirm, nor deny, any such instances which may, or may not have, occured. Nor do I have any recollection of such.

If you cannot carry a cop carry a gun. But take all the training available and secure under lock and key when not on your possession. When isolated (boondocking) is when you might be most targetable.

In my previous trailer I had a small gun safe, used to secure valuables. I assume if you do carry a firearm you have been trained and practice often.

If you are thoughtful in your choice of camping areas your biggest risk would be a break down on the side of the road.

I only carry a gun while traveling. It saved our lives a couple years ago just north of Birmingham. A guy got mad because he passed me on the right while I was making a lane change with a trailer. He proceeded to pass me on the left then got in front of me and slammed on his brakes. We almost ran over him. We are lucky the 5x8 cargo trailer we were towing did not jack knife. He keep messing with us till I got my gun out. I guess he wanted me to pull over so he could attack me and my family. This was a traumatic experience for all of us. It seems like all my problems happen just north of Birmingham. I think it is like the Bermuda Triangle of bad drivers and bad roads and sometimes combined with bad weather.

Make sure you know the rules of the state you are in. Many states in the south have agreements with other states that make carry permits legal in other states.

What is to be gained by this thread?
If the majority of responders don't pack while camping that'll sway the poster?
For Pete's sake,....
Here's a thought,...
Go to a Winchester or Glock site and ask if they carry campers with their guns?

Folks, let's keep it courteous. We mods do not close threads liberally, but we do vigorously go after those who violate the "be nice" rule that every user agreed to when joining AirForums.

Wow, this thread started at 11:23AM, and it's already on it's second page. While where to place the spare key probably wouldn't have gone past the first post, it is more pertinent to Airstreaming. Discussing firearms, where and when to carry, voting rights and those who wish to trample on them, which religion or political party is the most righteous, etc, etc, all are topics more appropriately discussed on a forum dedicated to those topics. This is a divisive subject.
But then that's just my opinion.
Where the hell did I put my spare keys?

There original question was "do you have a firearm with you, is in the TT or TV?". This thread could be further classified. Does one open or conceal carry or just have a firearm in ones possession either in the TT or TV?
"If one has one with them, DON'T flaunt it, know the laws of where one is, have a permit and know how to use it"

Reasoned, polite discussion on the topic is allowed and welcome. The topic itself is neither offensive nor prohibited, but the threads that have been closed previously had devolved into angry and/or snarky arguments from diametrically opposed perspectives instead.

Please be courteous.

Might want to restate that as most law enforcement - local, county, state and federal are "Civilians".

Maybe there should be a gun master thread combining all of them so new members can read it and then move on since nothing new is ever said about guns. I suppose the same could be said of a lot of other topics, so then we could all do something else with our time.

I do request people with guns to camp far away from us since if they do use their gun, errant bullets easily go through RV's and the contents therein.



The Airstream is sold; a 2016 Nash 24M replaced it.
