    How Many Have Fired Their Weapon?

    I understand the desire for protection for our family and ourselves, but how many people on this forum have fired their weapon while camping at a campground?

    I am not talking about at work as a LEO or at a gun range. I' m talking sitting around your CG having a beer and a pickup full of bad guys showed up and threatened you with bodily harm. Or had someone break into your RV while they were sleeping.

    It just seems like a lot of paranoia.

    Please respond with your name and give a very short description of the incident.

    With enough reports from our thousand members, you might educate us to how dangerous it is out there.

    No, thankfully I have never had to fire a weapon under the circumstances you have described.

    Thankfully, I have never had to use a fire extinguisher in my rig either. Trace

    Re: How Many Have Fired Their Weapon?

    Tom, funny you should bring this up.
    There has been a thread going on about the necessity of having a gun.
    So I thought I would do a little research into how many people have had to do what you just asked about.
    About the only incidents I could find were problems at trailer parks, not RV parks.
    Perhaps someone else can find other information.

    Peace

    I doubt that you are going to find much in the way of incidents in RV parks. As a general rule the people in RV parks are families with children or retirees traveling from one place to another. Most people who carry do so because they are traveling between those places and what they run into on local interstates, rest stops and back roads might bring upon a need.

    As Trace said, I too have never had to fire any of my weapons in such a situation. I also have never had to use my fire extinguisher but would never travel without one. I actually have 3 fire extinguishers in my rig, one in the bedroom, one in the kitchen and one in the garage. I won't tell you how many weapons I have.

    It is your right to have a weapon if you choose to. The police do not sit outside your house 24 hours a day to protect you like the President of the United States. A saying that I like is " I would rather be tried by 12 rather than carried by 6"

    I doubt you can find many RV park altercations, Im sure they are rare.

    I had an altercation with a skunk but better judgement kept me from using my weapon. Do you know how far they can spray?

    I got a skunk story, friend of mine shot a skunk at deer camp. He turned around and clearly stated that if you shoot them in the head that they can't spray. That was about 1 second before the fumes gassed us out of our camp. HE never lived it down.

    Re: How Many Have Fired Their Weapon?

    If Boca-Shuffles is attempting to draw conclusions about the personal choice of gun ownership from the responses by forum members to his "loaded" question, he will almost surely get the results he seems to be looking for. If gun ownership was based on the probability of using of that firearm, no one could justify owning a firearm. The vast majority of peace officers never fire their weapon in the line of duty over their entire career. Can you then conclude there is no reason for them to be armed. Absurd. If you chose not to own a firearm, DON'T.
