Staying in Las Vegas Hotel with SASS guns

Recommended Posts

Howdy

A group of Kiwi shooters are flying out of Vegas after EOT 2020.

 

We plan to stay a couple of nights in Las Vegas.

We will have a (airline approved) locked firearms container each - but no ammo.

Does anyone have any experience of staying on the Strip (with firearms) after that deadly incident.

Anyone know of any hotel policy that could thwart our plans?

 

Thanks in advance.

Got some SASS shooters that live in Vegas.

Maybe you can get with them to leave at there house while you are there.

Just a thought.

Check the hotel websites.

 

Depending on where you’re staying in LV, that could be easy or hard.

 

Think about staying in Hendèrson, (closer to airport) at one of the “mini”  Marriott or Hilton, etc. hotels. Don’t tell him anything. Just get your stuff in there and lock the door. You could check their website to see if they have any issues with firearms, but I sure as hell would not ask them .

Pick up stickers for keyboard manufacturers (Korg, Casio, Yamaha, etc) and put them on your gun cases. Gun Cases are scary Keyboard cases are not.

 

From the outside gun and keyboard cases look a lot alike.

a number of years ago, I went to a match a few states away.  when I got to the hotel where my reservation was, they posted no firearms allowed.  i ignored that sign.  but thats just me.

If they don’t allow firearms they should make that known when  you make the reservation. Ambushing you with it upon arrival is not acceptable. As noted above, just ignore it if it jumps up at you when you get there.

:ph34r:  Railroad Pass Hotel, where we stayed during Eldorado, will secure your arms in their vault.   I would contact the security officer in charge at your desired hotel and ask if they provide this service.

I'd highly recommend this...

 

I stayed downtown last year during a Navy reunion... The casino/hotel security staff locked up my guns in their vault per my request, since I didn't want to leave them in my vehicle or in my room while I was out & about.  Security met me at the door and escorted me to the Security Office while I carried my guns (cased).   Gave me a signed receipt for each gun, including generalized condition statement & serial number.

 

During "Best Shoot by a Dam Site, they stayed with me, as I was in & out during my stay at Railroad Pass Casino/Hotel, as not being alone is high on their (my guns) list of pet peeves. ;).  (A joke folks, I don't attribute sentiments to inanimate objects)!   Yes, some readers might be slower on the uptake than your normal Kiwi!

 

By the way, y'all bringing the AllBlacks w/ya?   ...I'm a huge fan!

If you don't check with the hotel then don't get an upper floor and don't look out the window.

Sometimes if a casino is involved...the laws are different. Do a little calling and checking.

As a Las Vegas resident and poker player; I find myself walking past the newly posted firearms notice plaques in many hotel/ casinos.

 

Since the Mandalay Bay shooting; a number of strip hotels have adopted various inconsistent rules regarding firearms on property.

 

Some (the Venetian and MGM properties immediately come to mind) have adopted a knock and enter policy stating they may enter your room and inspect (for firearms) every 24 hours. 

 

They (and others) have also stated they will enter your room at least once every 24 hours regardless of posted do not disturb signage.

 

As others have said; checking hotel websites for firearm policy and then following up by phone is the best way to determine actual information.

If you have the option, and decide to have your guns locked in a vault, make sure you know when you can and cannot have access to them.  Especially if you have an early morning flight.  If there is no one available to release your firearms to you between the hours of 8 PM and 8 AM, and your flight is at 5:45 AM, you might have a problem.  Seeing as how we're talking about Vegas I suspect many things are open 24 hours, but, if not...  Could also be something as silly as "The security guy with the key to the vault is off on weekends and won't be back until Monday"  How quickly the guy with the key can be found should also be considered.  If it takes 45 minutes to find the guy with the key, or he's "busy", that could really screw with your ability to get to the airport on time.

 

I've seen all of the above occur.   Different times and different places but it sucks when it happens.

As a resident and concealed carrier I can tell you a couple of things. Casino signs that state “No firearms allowed” are NOT laws. They are simply company policy. If you don’t abide by that policy the worst they can do is ask you to leave. If you refuse to leave that’s when police will be called. 

 

Security is what would concern me. I wouldn’t want to leave a bunch of expensive firearms unsecured in a hotel room. I also wouldn’t want to leave them unsecured in my vehicle while I was out and about. Locked in a trunk or truck safe would be much better.

Bull, hate to be the bearer of bad news...

But as a concealed weapons instructor; your information, while commonly believed, is incorrect.

 

In the state of Nevada; if the premises is posted with a sign that explicitly states "No Firearms Allowed", or even implies the same thru symbols (pistol with the line thru it) and you pass by in possession of a firearm; you are in violation of state law.

 

This is a result of Nevada state public buildings/ grounds and private property open to public invitation (retail, restaurant, shop, bank, church, etc.) being held to the same standard.

 

While I agree, that in most cases, the result of this occurance will be simply being asked to leave - the potential is present for police response, arrest and charges.

 

If the premises is NOT posted (and not an understood prohibited carry location; i.e. private or public schools or public buildings upon public airports {excepting some very specific exemptions}) - you may legally carry (open or concealed). 

 

But then the person in charge of the property, still retains the right to request the person carrying to leave the property under trespass laws - but as long as the person being requested to do so leaves peaceably - under that consideration, there is no violation of any firearms law.

 

And sadly with our current governor - the laws governing firearms use, ownership and carry in Nevada are going to become even more confusing with his allowance for local municipalities to enact their own laws (Nevada law has been that firearms regulations were enacted at state level - to avoid patchwork legislation and creating inadvertent violations with in-state travel).

I'm sure you could just leave them for a few days with a shooter that lives in LV.

Advertising you have firearms in a hotel could be a disaster. Don't walk around bragging you're a shooter, remain humble and quiet, I always even made sure nobody saw me taking guns into the motel for cleaning or whatever, look upon everyone as suspicious, watch if you're being followed, be alert and you'll be fine.

Saying you've actually got some, then that employee may be a bad ass, have not so good mates, & next minute they're all stolen and it's an inside job.?

In all the years we were in the US I left them in my vehicle locked in a special custom made only wooden box, locked and chained to the vehicle, painted black along side my guncart in the Dodge van, with a black blanket over everything and tinted windows. Always found a a spot to park that looked safe and within site most times. Most motels we stayed at were the old type where you parked outside the door, even in Vegas! Sometimes it pays to hire a car with a boot, rather than an SUV, as rental cars are the cheapest with no tinted windows.

Incognito is best, what they don't know won't hurt anyone in my book.
