LTRVD0286 RVers and Firearms

We start with John’s good report from his doctor. As we get older, our health is the main thing that can affect our time on the road. After the mail, we discuss older RV’s and what a good idea it can be to at least start out with an older rig that will fit your budget. John talks about the steps to take to ensure you are making a good decision.

Next we get into RVers and firearms. We discuss the fact that states have very different laws about firearms. One good publication is “The Travelers Guide to the Firearms Laws of the Fifty States” by attourney J. Scott Kappas available from . Another good guide is “Gun Laws by State” by Bryan L. Ciyou available from the National Rifle Association. A good source to learn about the reciprocity of Concealed Carry Permits(CCW) is the U.S. Concealed Carry Association’s website . We also discussed self defense. A good source of information is from the Armed Citizens’ Legal Defense Network at Kathy reads an insightful essay from Gypsy Journal author Nick Russell titled “The Armed RVer.”

Then we discuss how to make yourself comfortable in your rig in winter conditions. Much of that information is available on the Winter Camping page on our website

Our Full-timer’s Tip of the week concerns doing your own investigation into RVing and not simply relying on hearsay input.
