I live in washington, i will be going camping in my van. My CPL doesn't come through before I go. In my house I have a right to a loaded gun, how about my "home" on wheels???
Hmmm... I may be wrong here, but, it does say "a loaded pistol". So a defense shotgun or long gun of choice would be legal. (?).
That wasn't my understanding of Oregon's CHL. When I applied for mine I didn't know whether or not I got it until the day it showed up in the mail. Tillamook Sheriff's office mentioned nothing of carrying the receipt as a sort of temporary license.
IMHO though, I think the camping in a vehicle may be a grey area "due for case law".
RVs.. Hooked up or not.. Trailers, hooked to truck?
I have a tent trailer. If Im unhooked and camping in it. pffft.. I'll take that to court. Its not a vehicle in that form..
At any rate.. RV or Van/camper maybe pushing it a little.. But again.. Sounds like grey area to me. Push that open carry legality and I am camping/outdoorsing grey area if anyone gives you a hard time.
I do have recpt, but I agree, that isn't a license to carry.
Its ironic, i originally got into handguns for SD in the woods.
I will never go camping in the winter again, but I am this week.
My CPL arrives in a month,so I will wait. My knife and a huge mag lite will have to work.Not that i actually expect an encounter, but????
So I "won't carry and will probably be murdered by 3,000 illegal maids/meth manufacturers.
Stay safe and thanks again!!!!
