Firearms

Do you take them on the road with you? Why? Why not? Do you keep them in your Airstream? TV? Take them into National or State Parks? I've got a long trip coming up and I plan on bringing mine, for those low frequency but high risk situations...

That's not the real question. The correct question is how many minutes will it take for this thread to be locked or deleted.
Come, you know you have already made your decision, so what diff does it make what anybody else does ?

OMG.... not again? Sorry, I could not resist. Search for a post called 'Protection on the road from ruffians', a lot of reading there. You will be very entertained.

A "loaded" question, the only subject that gets nuttier than hitches and tow vehicles.

I would strongly suggest that you read this thread... all 13 pages of it.

I am leaving this open for the time being.

I will read that. Sorry gmw, I didn't realize that utilizing a discussion forum to ask about firearms is inappropriate or grounds for having a thread shut down. I guess more important items such as wear to place your spare key should be higher on the priority list.

This is an issue that has been discussed here on the Forums a number of times in the past. It always seems to end in a political debate that results in an abrupt end to the thread by the Forum Moderators.

That being said, I am of the belief that these matters are best decided by each person, acted on accordingly, and kept to oneself.

As Moosetags wrote, the issue is about the direction threads on this topic take rather than the specific topic.

Depending on the part of the country you are from and political leanings it fast becomes a hot under the collar subject. Airforums wants to remain neutral, and friendly.

I generally do not take a firearm when I travel on a caravan. One reason is that we go to Canada fairly often and that makes difficult taking a gun for the entire trip. Another reason for me not carrying a handgun in the trailer is that I am actually more afraid of the various gun laws and zealous law enforcement than I am of the bad guys.
But to the original question. When I do take a firearm, and now is one of those times, I keep it in a soft case either in the hall closet when parked for a while or under the bed when traveling. Or in the drawer I made for guns and fishing tackle in the back of the truck.
I do not see anything wrong with your original question.

I agree that on international trips it would be a headache.

At least trailer manufactures have a set of federal regulations to follow that trump any state laws. There are as many different firearm laws as there are states, cities and towns and I have no time or interest to learn all of them. I would look like a chameleon on a plaid shirt....

It's too bad Airforums doesn't have a "Firearms" or "Hunting" subforum.

Camping and shooting.
My two favorite pastimes.

To answer OP's question: yes, I always carry.
It's a good idea to know the laws from state to state.
usacarry.com has a great interactive map to check reciprocity between states for CPL's

I find my fellow campers to be generally a friendly, peaceful folk. Unless backwood camping in grizzly country, I can't really see the need for a firearm.
