Guns and RV’s are the only subject of this week’s show. We interviewed Nick Russell, editor of the very well-known Gypsy Journal electronic newspaper about the RV lifestyle and the daily blog by the same name.
I know Nick as a newspaper guy but also as a very knowledgeable Gun Guy. Brought up in a law enforcement household, experience in the US Army infantry, and later on in several agencies of Arizona Law Enforcement, Nick is my go-to source for firearm related information, especially as it applies to living in RV’s with guns.
We covered a lot of ground in a short time, and I really wanted to emphasize the hard decision making process that needs to happen before an RVer decides to purchase a firearm. We discussed Concealed Carry Permits and the differences in some State’s laws concerning this. This went into trying to be current on the gun laws of the states we as RVers will both stop in and travel through.
Here are some good resources:
• Legal Heat is an Android App featuring comprehensive concealed and open carry law summaries of the 50 States written by attorneys.
• http://www.handgunlaw.us/ The Internet’s Premier database for Concealed Carry Handgun and Firearms Law.
• The 2016 Traveler’s Guide to the Firearms Laws of the Fifty States. A book by J. Scott Kappas available on Amazon.com for $10.73
We talk at some length about what is the best firearm to have in an RV. There are some well publicized myths about this that were also addressed. We talked about shotguns and the proper loads to use in the close confines of an RV park as well as pistols and types of pistol ammunition best for use inside an RV.
This short audio is by no means a comprehensive guide for Guns and RV’s, but an introduction to a very serious subject.
