The circular restaurant on the 2nd story of the Plaza is great on a Friday night. Place is hopping and it seems most of the waiters are older Italian guys. Real atmosphere. Plus they have/had $1.00 16 oz beers in front while a band plays. This is on one end of the Fremont Experience. It is a very interesting place. I haven't heard of the Station. We will be the the last week in April. We go once a year and always have a great time. Are there other places like Red Rock Canyon? We have done Hoover Dam and the paddle wheel boat twice. I also noticed that Front Sight has stopped doing free classes. [:(] Thanks for the info, Bob

If you are looking for something a little different, check out Area 51, the Extraterrestrial Highway and the Little A'Le'Inn in Rachel, NV. About two hours north of Las Vegas. Great area for camping, hiking, 4-wheeling and of course for searching the night skies for that "mothership". These links have more info and directions: [url]http://www.dreamlandresort.com/[/url] [url]http://rachel.dreamlandresort.com/[/url] BTW: I am the webmaster of both sites. Hope Bob doesn't mind the plug.

What about flying into Clark County? I have alweays felt a little weird bringing my pistol in my luggage. The impression I got was that I must register my firearm to have it in Las Vegas? I know CCDW is out of the question, I just want it for peace of mind in our room. Bob

Sure, I'll see what I can dig up. Its really some pretty country up there (if you like the desert). Lots of old mines and ghost settlements up there. Check out the Nearby Places section of our Rachel page: [url]rachel.dreamlandresort.com[/url] Rachel Day on May 10 is a good time to visit. They have a parade, crafts fair and live music.

Hello guys, Its great to have such a good hometown forum. Since you guys are so knowledgeable, I was wondering if you've heard anything about open-carry for handguns in Nevada. I've been told by several Metro employees that there is no law against it but is rarely ever taken advantage of. I'm just trying to separate fact from fiction. Thanks for the input.

I sent the Stratoshpere an email asking about their policy and whether or not it would change, regarding firearms. Here is the reply I got from them yesterday.
Mr. Kay9, The Stratosphere Casino, Hotel and Tower has not changed it's policy on firearms possession on property. Our security department will be happy to answer any other questions you may have regarding this issue. You can reach them through the hotel operator at 702/380-7777. Regards, Gladys Major Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower

I was there a few weeks ago and was caught off-guard with a switchblade in my pocket. Since we had reservations for dinner running back to the car was not an option. The security guard tagged it and gave me a claim check and we went on up. If it had not been a special dinner for my wife and I, we would have turned around and left. We will NOT be returning until the policy changes. I am just glad I wasn't carrying my pistol. Bob

If you liked red Rock Canyon and you have the time, take a run up to Zion Nat'l Park. A pretty neat run through canyons on I-15 and beautiful scenery when you get there. Make sure you go through the tunnel and past a few miles.

I saw on the news that they found dinosaur prints in Valley of Fire. Previously unknown to exist in that area. Valley of Fire reminds me of Red Rock Canyon. I love them both.

Id like to add stay FAR away from the Bellagio

Im currently working there working on a tower. There security is the worst that i have ever seen, or maybe the best depending on how you look at it.

I was told by engineering that they personally witnessed a hoo hah between the security at the bellagio when they asked a metro detective to remove her firearm and check it before going into the hotel.

These people are anal when it comes to security. You must be badged to even enter there casino and they constantly check to make sure youre wearing your badge. Today i forgot my badge. They have security in every elevator. I got into the elevator and i talk to this security guard daily, and when he saw me he asked me how i was doing, then he asked to see my id badge and i asked him "dont you remember me??" he said yes, but i still need to see your badge. I told him that i forgot my badge at home and he said that he had to escort me out of the building so he took me down and escorted me out of the building.

I asked him why this had to be that way and he said that they are on a hightened alert due to the recent code orange update, and they threw me out of the jobsite even though everyone there knows me cause i talk to them daily on the ride up the elevator. They also have no concealed weapons signs posted EVERYWHERE.

The Big O is very gun unfriendly, they wont even let metro come into the casino with guns.

Hmm, never noticed the signs in Bellagio. I'll have to remember that the next time if i ever cruise in there again. Add the Blvd. Mall and Meadows to the list. Not sure about Fashion Show, but i wouldn't doubt they would have such signs as well.

i can second the Strat. A few months ago, i walked in there without seeing the signs. It was posted about 20 feet inside the building, high on a side wall. Not very easy to see, IMO, but there nonetheless. There is a metal detector at the base of the tower, which I didn't know was there until got there. I asked to store it upon seeing the detector; i was told they could not. I ran back to the car, and put it there, ran back to the metal detector. Told by helpful security guard, "you know, you can't even have that on property." Have any of you seen the surrounding area around Strat? The Naked City is what it used to be called.

Regarding Bellagio, the irony is their big security show when you try to drive into the self-park. They have these two guys/girls randomly checking trunks for whatever. Imagine if a car bomb DID go off. Bellagio may be opening themselves up for a lawsuit, because they actually took the time to check the trunk, and didn't find the offending bomb!!

When I lived in Las Vegas (left in 1998), my friends & I would carry an unconcealed pistol when on the way out to the desert for a little shooting. We would walk into the supermarket and Starbucks, and nobody freaked out. I also carried openly when riding my bike. The only place you may get hassled for open carry is on The Strip or in the Fremont Street experience. And the police take a dim view of anyone carrying a firearm in casinos, even if they have a CCW permit.

I took my CCW class with Jim Mayhugh when I lived there, I can attest to the fact that he is a knowlegeable instructor, has about the best prices going and is an all-around nice guy. I highly recommend him for the required CCW course.

Hey, one of my friends got some sort of cheap rate at some downtown place called "The Las Vegas Club." We're talking $25 a night.

Is this some bust-out joint or a seedy place? He's beginning to remember that you get what you pay for.

I am heading out there the first week of December with 3 hell-raising Citadel classmates of mine for our 30th. birthdays. It's a Mon-Fri stay and we'll be at the Imperial Palace.

I've been to Atlantic City a number of times but Vegas is a first for me. Will we do OK by the Imperial Palace? I have heard that while the hotel leaves a little to be desired, the location is superb.

Will carrying under HR218 be too much of a hassle?

... when I travel on trips like these, I need a room only to SS&S. By time I get to my room, the only thing I give a damn about is hot running water, clean linens, no hobo's and very few insects.

I can't get the Aladdin link to work. Why are they antigun, what have they done?

I'd also like to add that the OPM Nightclub in the Caesar's Forum Shops is the ONLY nightclub in Las Vegas that does not allow carry of firearms (they wand you and pat you down).

Also, the Tuscany on east Flamingo has NO HANDGUN signs (as does Macy's at the Boulevard Mall).

Sorry to necro a thread, but I just saw in one of the responses that LV prohibits park carry of firearms.

"13.36.055 Prohibitions.
(A) The following are prohibited within any City park:
(1) Fireworks, firearms or weapons of any kind;
(2) Fires, except in barbecue facilities;
(3) The hitting of golf balls;
(4) The use of metal detectors, except for surface finds;
(5) The unauthorized sale of goods or services.
(B) Pursuant to Subsection (B) of Section 13.36.050, a copy or summary of the regulations listed in Subsection (A) of this Section shall be posted at each City park.
(Ord. 5287 § 1, 2000)"

If I read this correctly, this was passed in 2000, and should be invalid in that premption was passed in 1989 and covered issues of possession.

Any thoughts?
