Our big dog with a big bark is nearly blind and going deaf, BUT the little dog gets the big dog barking by yapping at real (and imagined) sights and sounds.

Wherever u keep it, keep it locked. Even in that cabinet, a 5 yo can reach it if he stands on the bed. Also, expose the little ones (safely) as much as possible; take the mystery and intrigue out as much as possible and make sure they fully understand the danger and responsibility involved. Also stress they are not to mention that firearm to anyone under any circumstance.

I would carry a firearm, with a permit from my state.
My family comes first!
I would deal with "the Law" later.

Dogs. Guns. Both. But keep in mind, if you ever use a gun on a person, your life will change. Still, as the old saying goes, better to be judged by 12 than carried by six.

So funny, now I have to clean my computer screen as I spit coffee all over it.

I do not own a gun and never likely will. Camp in places with other campers...safety in numbers. I have two dogs and they would bark before someone got anywhere near a door.....giving me time to prepare......if someone was breaking in....they would get hit hard many time with an object of my choosing.

I like the panic button idea of my truck as well.....it would alert other campers, again safety with numbers.

To me if someone is brash enough to break in while they know someone is there.....have at it, they will deserve what ever they get and no court in any land will find that you acted irrational.

I had to break in to mine own camper when I lock my keys inside, I borrowed the neighbors key for the underneath my bed storage area and pushed up my bed...it took seconds. I have since changed the locks and now keep a spare key on my trailer. No one has been able to find it...I told 3 people to look for it and they know that there is a key and they have not been successful.

Can some one break in, yes but I have insurance for that very reason. My trailer is parked on a seasonal site and people who camp near me are all seasonal site campers as well, they will question anyone who is walking around my site as will I if I saw a stranger around their campers.

X2. But choosing can be hard. Let's see, .40? .45?

With California State Parks, almost always attached to the check-in receipts you put on your TT and TV is an attachment warning of recent thefts of chained/locked generators ... where there is a will, there is a way. On the flipside, our dog is an added security alarm when a noise is too close.

Years ago when my retired parents were RVing across the country, they pulled into a state park after dark. As my dad backed the motorhome into a space, the headlights illuminated a popup across the campground road. Next to the entrance was a huge pair of men's boots.

Dad was intrigued and made it a point to open the windshield curtain as soon as they arose because he wanted to see the man who owned those boots. He was surprised and amused when two older ladies packed up to leave... including the giant-sized boots.
