O.k. I'm going to Las Vegas for the first time and I realize there just so many hotels to consider I'm sure this most be the most visited place on earth. Since I'm not planning to spend $1,000 for a room. I just want some advice from people that has been there about which will be a good place to stay, that will give me the most for my money...I also will like to pay a visit to some gun stores, so any advice regarding which are the best will be more than welcome!!!

Whatever came of that ARFcom Fire Mission of the guy that got hassled in a Vegas Casino. My adopted bro wants to exercise more of his rights.

Thanks,
Chris

I stay in the Stardust each year when I go to a continuing education seminar for my EA license. It's pretty nice. This year they gave away my reserved room and ended up putting me in a 1000 sq ft suite - not bad for $65/night.

Before you lose all your money, don't forget tthaat Zion National Park is only a few hours away and the trip goes throught and to some spectacular scenery. Visit Hoover Dam.

I absolutely am obsessed with Las Vegas.
This is not a hot link but, it is www.travel2vegas.com
They have a forums area on their sight and have lots of good information there as well as cheapovegas.
This is just my opinion but I would not stay at Terribles on my first trip to Vegas. Stay on the strip or downtown the first time.

One last thing, don't believe all the propaganda that the Travel Channel spews forth on their shows
about Las Vegas. Some of those shows are now four or five years old and should be viewed for entertainment purposes only. For instance, you will never hear the Travel Channel tell you that you could get mugged or worse walking from downtown to the Lady Luck Casino. Just my 2 cents.

as far as gun stores.....The Gun Store..on tropicana....was full of guys that had little interest in talking with customers, very unfriendly atmosphere, and was NOT NEAR what it is hyped up to be on the net.

just my $.02

Aladdin. Gotta respect how they handled the Linda R. situation.

I never end up spending much time in my room, so I dont worry about the hotel.

I like the MGM because its right in the center of the strip and has good parking. Rooms are decent enough and its prices are average.

Im paying $80/night when I go right after labor day.

Try American Shooters Club at 3440 Ariville St. - I think near Spring Mountain Rd, West of the strip. They have a nice indoor range with great lounge facilities. Found it by accident on a business trip last month.

I have stayed at most of the nicer hotels in vegas. The best deal i have ever had was at the Alladin. 75 buck an a weekday got us a very nice room with a BIG square soaking tub and separate shower and toilet in a seperate area. great Veiw ofthe fountains of Bellagio. If this is the first time going you will be overwhelmed at all the sensory experiences.. Rent a car and visit all the holtels. Have the valet park your car,its worth the 2 dollar tip. Munch on the buffets. the first 3 days you will be lost in the hotels.LOL See the Belagio fountain show and the ttrasure island show. Go to the Rio and enjoy the Snobs and the buffet. AH the Venitian.What Granduer. Remember smokes/drinks are free while gambling!!!I would'nt mess with the tittie clubs till the second or third time there. If you have time go shoot a MG at one ofthe gun shops. It FUN but can get EXPENSIVE FAST.If you want to pony up to see a show,Celion Dion is a great show,well worth the 150 per ticket I paid. O was only so so to me.My wife loved it but I thought lookig at a bunch of acrobats flying around was not worth 150 bucks.

Enjoy your time in Vegas.

You may end up ahving the urge like i do to move there

I went in there with my bro and my AR and it turns out they were repainting the range that night, so we couldn't shoot. Everyone seemed knowledgable and friendly/"not arrogant".

Ahhhh....I was at the Gun Store, and let me tell you something, the people that work there were very friendly and helpful. Rented a MP5 and the Uzi. Don't know why you think its unfriendly, maybe your unfriendly? They were very nice to me and my wife.

I remember going there when it was called Target Alley. It was a great place to shoot. If you are looking to buy a handgun then go to (I think it's called) Bills discount guns, it's located at the top of fremont just before the Fremont experience.
