Another vote for Discount Firearms. Some of the best guys ive seen over there. Everywhere else I went seemed to be stuck up assholes. The guys over at Discount were great. Got to shoot a Mp-5, Thompson and an Uzi. I think I walked around with a chubby for a couple days after that.

If you want to explore the southern NV area on dirt bikes, I know a guy who operates just such tours. There's actually quite a bit of good riding out there, and it's not all flat desert. The mountains have some great trails. On dual-purpose bikes, you can even ride the dirt roads that are open in the Red Rock scenic area. Let me know if you're interested; I'll give you his number.

Stay at the Bellagio. Make sure to hit Front Site and Deja Vu. Golf at Shadow Creek. Did I mention Deja Vu? Luck Alac Las Vegas is a kinda like heroin, by the time you realize you've got a problem, you're probably not worth fixin.

I advise you not to miss Fremont Street. It still has the old time charm of the 1950's Vegas.

Make sure you have a firm grip on your wallet if you watch the light show. Lots of pickpockets. I recommend visiting Cheetahs. It is a place that the entire family can enjoy.

Another vote for Front Sight, but I'd call ahead and see if they're doing a free machinegun course the weekend you're here... It's great fun, doesn't cost anything and gives you the rundown on a great training facility.

I bought my Glock at The Gun Store on Tropicana and I agree that it's a really well run shop. If you want to take in some nice scenery, Red Rock Canyon is nice. On the way there is The Front Site by the way. If you're into "gentlemen's clubs", I vote for the Olympic Gardens. The Forum Shops at Caesar's Palace is a really nice, high-end mall. The Fremont Street Experience downtown is pretty cool as they have a computerized lightshow on the overhead canopy that's several blocks long. There's some pretty nice roller coasters too...and of course, all the new hotels on the strip. My personal favorite is the pyramid shaped Luxor. It's a total trip. Have fun.

MY Vegas must do list is: Lunch at the Stage Deli in the forum shops. Dinner at the Bellagio Buffet. Get boozed up at Crazey Horse 2. Party at the Beach. Late night breakfast at Mr. Lucky's 24/7. Repeat everyday until your trip ends or you die of gluttony/alcohol poisoning/VD. PS.. I try to go shooting on BLM land in Soan too.

I used to frequent Cheetah's. Had alot of fun there, but it's really a low buck locals place. It's definately a place you can stabbed in if your not carefull. Crazey Horse 2 has a higher quality of girls.

Shops: The M&M Store down on the south end of the Strip (near the MGM Grand, I think), for all your M&M needs. Ethel-M's chocolates, in about half the casino shopping areas, for all your extremely-high-quality chocolate needs. Gambler's General Store, just south of downtown, for any gambling toys you might want. general shopping area, way west of the Strip on Charleston -- much cheaper than the tourist traps on-Strip. Gasoline: CostCo (if you have a membership card). Breakfast: Who the hell eats breakfast any more?? Lunch: Treasure Island buffet. Dinner: Ginseng Korean BBQ and Sushi, all-you-can-eat sushi (one hour time limit), across from Stardust. Mirage or Bellagio buffet. Golden Nugget buffet, if you're downtown. Casinos (if you're single and want to see non-hooker babes): Hard Rock, Friday afternoon through Sunday morning -- all of LA's hottest go there. Mirage, most of the time -- lots of hot babes and classy broads. Casinos (if you're single and want to stare at cocktail waitresses): Rio (uniform style: "butt floss") Orleans (uniform style: "butt floss") Imperial Palace (new uniforms aren't as good as the old ones) The Reserve (way out in Henderson) Casinos (if you want to gamble): Imperial Palace Binion's Horseshoe (downtown) Palace Station (off-Strip) Casinos (if you want to play poker): Mirage (high stakes) Orleans (lots of local pros) Binion's Horseshoe (classic) Casinos (best booze): Bellagio (pre-takeover, don't know about today) Mirage Cocktail lounges: Rio's Voodoo Lounge (nice view, many hot babes) Places to pick up hookers (not that I ever tried): The "baccarat bar" dollar slot machines at Mirage Rio's Voodoo Lounge NEVER EVER EVER EVEN THINK OF EATING AT THE CIRCUS-CIRCUS. You WILL get sick. The joke around town is that if the pit critters at CC try to comp you to the buffet, they're trying to kill you.

Oh -- general advice -- if you intend to do any gambling for any length of time, get a "comp card" and use it. You may as well get something out of the losses, and a free meal beats nothing (except at the C-C). Shows and Rides: Free: Pirate battle, outside Treasure Island Volcano, evenings outside Mirage Waterfall, daytime outside Mirage Dancing water fountains, outside Bellagio Light show, Fremont Street (downtown) White tigers, inside Mirage (display area) Nice big fish tank, inside Mirage (behind checkin desk) Nice big shark tank, inside Mirage (the casino, of course) Huge golden nugget, Golden Nugget (downtown) Low-cost: Dolphins, at the Mirage "Big Shot", top of the Stratosphere old cars, Imperial Palace (sometimes free coupons are given out TO COUPLES ONLY) Oreo, First Rabbit of Magic, Lady Luck (downtown) High-cost: Blue Man Group - Luxor "O" - Bellagio Siegfried & Roy (tigers) - Mirage Cirque du Soleil - Treasure Island rock music concerts, various - Hard Rock

Oh, and finally, for ridiculously overpriced merchandise, the Forum Shops at Caesar's Palace. Speaking of Caesar's, the bar with the "barge" in it used to be nicknamed the "gonnorhea bar" for obvious-enough reasons. I don't know if it's the same way today, though. Oh, and if you're into oration, Caesar himself comes out and yuks it up with the yokels every hour or two during the day, along with various sidekicks. They also have some sort of "moving statue" stuff. I never did like Caesar's; they have a nice slidewalk that takes you in, and then you have to walk two or three miles to get out again. A real pain in the feet, not to mention ass.

I hesitate to post this, but . . . I found a picture of the new Imperial Palace cocktail waitress costumes: http://[url]http://communities.msn.com/_Secure/0SgCbC5QXLmSBRcZI7r0iqYmqZ9T9axYgQL2DxYoWLYBP­uoWPrJicgtk4rLrX1Pl9A3tHebMsItTWIfFJGY7bvr8rj­Bm!D4HRjd41J9pPLcFFo9xeUj!MKA/ImpPalace.jpg[/url] (It's MSN; it only shows up properly in Internet Exploder. What do you expect from the company that brought you Windows?) Also, I suppose I should mention, for a place to ask questions about where to go and what to do in Las Vegas, try here: http://[url]http://www.bj21.com/LV_life/[/url]
