Sorry to wander off a bit but I saw a 5 shot revolver @ a gun show recently called the Thunder Five which is chambered for .410 shotgun shells. The booth owner started going on and on about how good it is to carry in a RV before I ever opened my mouth.

my sister carries a 'judge' by taursus, with also works with .410 shotgun shells... which is thankfully what she runs in it...

i was thinking last night how it would be a good weapon for the camper with the .410 shells. thinking about getting one..

she's pretty good with firearms, but i told her to be very very careful the first time she puts those long colt .45s in it... turns it into a hand cannon...

Many of the police departments use the light, approx 100 gr. hollow point bullets. Good for their use and safer in a city where bullets can go places you don't want time to go.
You can own a handgun in Canada, but unless you have a permit you can't carry or travel with it and it is almost impossible to get one. During my police days I was the Chief Range Officer for my police service for a short period of time, and this was when we carried S&W .38 specials. In the late 70's and early 80's we used Glazer ammo which was small pellets suspended in a teflon liquid which would dissipate and not allow ricochets in built up areas. It was also hard to treat because the shot was so small. The owner of the company which I believe was in Texas passed away and his son took over and started cutting corners and he lost our business.

On my 5th wheel I have an opening under my master bed when my slide is in the closed position and would make a great storage area.

I have two revolvers, with one being my old service revolver but because of our laws they languish in my safe in my bedroom at home.

I keeo mine in thee cupboard above my bed if I'm asleep or if I've had any adult beverages - If not, it's on my person pretty much all the time.

If I would carry my shotgun with me it would reside in the wardrobe on my side of the bed. I would never place it in a hard to reach area, ie under the bed.

Don's a retired 'firearms instructor'... I can't tell you where we 'store' it (or me when I camp solo), but I can tell you the grandkids don't have access to it! LOL btw... yes I can still shoot expert as I did once upon a time when I was in the US Army *pride* (Thank you Don!)

i agree with a lock box - by the time you get it unlocked and in use it may about three minutes too late haha...

I do hear alot of folks will mount a secret door thru the floor inside a cabinet for such things.
I take either the .38 or The Judge with me when I camp. If we drive away from the campsite, the Judge goes with me.
When I am in the RV it is next to the bed.
No kids, so no lock box.....which does not help you if you need it fast.
Snake shot loaded.

lol, first time I shot a .410 round from the Judge it had a pretty good recoil! Surprised me! I use the snake shot in it tho mostly. Except in the winter I put the regular rounds in it.

To drift just a bit, we do hide a bedside big banger while out of the trailer. But when dressed for warm weather, i.e., shorts and t-shirt, I'll carry DW's purse pistol, an LCP. She often leaves the purse in the trailer or truck, and you sure don't want a teenage opportunist to get his hands on more than a checkbook and some car keys.
