Skip to comments.Best Firearm for RV?
Posted on 08/03/2006 6:45:43 PM PDT by SantaLuz
I posted a little while back that my family and I are in the final planning stages of taking a sabbattical year and travelling the US in an RV: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/1650540/posts
Although I currently don't have a firearm at home I'm thinking about purchasing one to take on the RV. But I have some questions/concerns:
- Is is legal to carry a gun in an RV? What kind of permit would I need to cross state lines? - What would the best weapon be to use in an RV park where a missed shot could easily travel through other RVs in close proximity? Shotgun? - Is it legal to purchase a taser-gun?
I'd appreciate any recommendations.
A FAL rifle.
Are you talking about somthing you can carry, or something you can mount on the RV? :^)
This web site will answer some of your questions.
Depends on the RV. Some of them can't handle anything over a 30mm.
Something to carry in the RV. We plan on doing some occasional "boondocking" in the wilderness and I thought I should have some protection against someone/something trying to break into the RV.
To TAKE OUT an RV???
haha.....good one...taking out an RV is much tougher...
Hahaha! Yeah hopefully I don't get a lemon and have to put it down.
How po'd are you at the RV?
I think Taser Guns are sold in Texas but they are kind of expensive I hear, not that I would know. Sounds like a shotgun would be right up your alley, aim and spray
I say a 12 gauge. Short range stopping power, and you don't need to be a good shot.
The gun would be hidden and unloaded at all times since I have children. I would only consider using it in an extreme life threatening situation. Pepper-spray will be something we take as well. Both my wife and I have some firearm training but from years ago. I've used a shotgun in skeet shooting and have fired various rifles and handguns in the past. We would be leaving in about 2 months time. Is that enough time to become knowledgeable enough?
Kimber 1911 .45cal ACP "Eclipse Target II", IMO.
Lemme know what you finally decide upon, S.
I think you are going to have to know the rules of every state you are entering.
