Guns on the road

OK My question of guns on the road inspired many to add their thoughts. I am convinced a hand gun is trouble if you are traveling. How about a shotgun? Any less laws regarding this item?

The only issue you avoid with a shotgun is concealed carry. The other various— and varied— laws concerning the transport of a firearm and concerning the use of a firearm for self defense still apply.

You still need to do your research and find out the gun laws for every state and municipality you will pass through, and comply with all of them.

I agree....You gotta know the laws for where you travel.

With that said, even though I am armed with a handgun daily on/off duty, I propably would have a long gun in my trailer if I were traveling around the country....I never thought about it until this fhread. Now, I have a good reason to buy another gun...One just to keep in the camper....lol.

I don't see the "trouble if you're traveling." We don't carry into Canada nor most of the 47 continental states but otherwise have few concerns.

CCW, an app for iPhone and iPad by Workman Consulting LLC, is $1.99 and essential for interstate travel with a handgun. A big plus for this app over some others is the very frequent data updates to keep it mostly current with quite frequent rules changes.

I have no connection with or interest in the developer or sales for them, but have appreciated this app for a couple of years.

Long guns in a trailer can be very cumbersome & difficult to maneuver especially if surprised late at night or needed for a quick response. Having said that they are better than no gun at all. Ninety percent of the time a handgun is a better weapon in a small space.

Lots of info on this via internet. But, I would caution using any app or book as the only source of information with respect to individual state laws. IF you plan on carrying any weapon, hand gun, long gun, or what is now referred to as tactical knives I would suggest one go the states AG office on line and within these sections one can find the current up to the minute laws with respect to transportation and or concealed carry.

"Traveler's Guide to the Firearm Laws of the Fifty States" is an excellent reference for RVers cris crossing state lines. It's available online for under $15, updated annually, concise & comprehensive, it's written by J. Scott Kappas, Esq. I've been using this as a reference since 2010 and have even fact checked it & found everything accurate. Each page is dedicated to the laws of one state in alphabetical order. This book removes any doubt about your legality in any state.

We have not found it necessary to carry a firearm on our travels. Pat

I have lived and worked in many places that were far, far more dangerous than the US. Not once did I carry a gun, or felt the need to do so.

I just don't get it.
It's not fear at all. Not by a long shot. It's called situational awareness.

It's a realization that not everyone is as nice as most folks you encounter. Some people are really bad and up to no good. On the off chance we are confronted by one of the "others" and it comes down to me or them, I'll do my best to make it "them".

Meanwhile, I enjoy the heck out of life!

Don't know if you have concealed permits in NJ but those states that do reciprocate with certain other states. Might also check states you are traveling to as many if not most allow travelers to carry, with some restrictions such location in the vehicle, etc. There is a federal law that allows a firearm to be carried if the state of origin and the state of destination will allow the firearm. That gun can be carried through, emphasize through, don't stop overnight, any state on the route.

So is the Ford 3/4 ton diesel truck better to haul a Sig or is it the Dodge 3/4 diesel truck?

Really I think it's a lack of confidence in one's situational awareness that leads one to think they need to keep a firearm nearby.
