    I would be floored to hear that you were disappointed. Have fun!

    Stayed at the Pahrump Nugget Hotel for the 4-day Frontsite and 1 day ccw course - they are very, very pro gun. I live in Hawaii and needed to have ammo drop shipped from the vendor so as to avoid the $350 UPS ground shipping fee for a 1000 rounds of 45. The Director of Operations at the hotel told me to just shoot him a copy of the shipping notice and my ammo would be at the front desk when I checked in. Not only was it there, they loaded up a cart for me to hall to the room. No one every looked at me twice decked out in gun belt and gear each day as I left for the range. Also has an ice machine on the ground floor as you exit to the parking lot so you can fill up your small ice chest.

    Saddle West has revised their policies and you can now take firearms into your room. You have to sign an agreement stating that you will abide by Front Sight's dry practice rules.

    I am planning a trip out to Front Sight and sent an e-mail to Saddle West about their policies on firearms. I got back a short message asking if I was attending Front Sight. I said I was and am waiting on their response.

    I guess that they realized they were shooting themselves in the foot if they didn't allow gun owners to stay in their facility...

    Saddle West has really stepped it up a notch. Firearms are allowed in the rooms as long as you sign the agreement. They offer 2 levels of discounts for Front Sight; one for first timers and one for First Family members. They give you a coupon, for 1 person, for each night that you stay for free breakfast buffets, which are excellent. One of the coupons is for the Sunday brunch buffet. The problem is that it doesn't open until after classes start at Front Sight. So they will let you use the coupon for any other meal; it has a $11.95 value). They also offer really good boxed lunches for you to take to class with you. They are $4 each, packed with stuff and you pick them up at the buffet counter in the morning.

    Now if only they had wi-fi.

    We stayed at the Best Western. They have free breakfast buffet for all guests every morning in time to leave for F.S. They also have discounted dinners in the sports bar after training (for guests), but we had T-bone at one of the local casino restaurants for very cheap! When I stayed with them, there was no problem having firearms in the rooms. I even went into the front office wearing my gear and nothing was said except for one guest assumed I was headed for F.S. and she ask what the training hours were. We had a nice room and WiFi.

    I got an e-mail back from them saying I could, after I signed the "agreement," keep firearms in my room if I were attending a Front Sight class. I wrote them back asking what their firearm policy was if I wasn't taking a Front Sight course. I received a cryptic reply about letting the front desk know and they would "notate" it.

    I'm not sure what they mean, but I am not inclined to stay somewhere where my ability to exercise my rights are predicated on attending a Front Sight class, or any other such training. The fact that so far the reply to my simple question about their general firearms policy has been vague, indicates to me that their overriding concern in these poor economic times is not one of their patron's personal safety, but of their bottom line.

    Front Sight hotels

    When I attended the 4 day course and 1 day CCW the instructor told us that most casinos don't want firearms on the floor, he went on to say that a lot of the casino security are former Las Vegas PD and they will know if you are CCW - but he said they will just watch you for a while and if you are just drinking coffee and playing the slots they will leave you alone - drink some booze and you will more than likely be asked to leave the property.

    I only will stay at Pahrump hotels that will allow me to drop ship ammo to them to hold for my class - that should tell you who is a gun friendly place.

  10. I just recently purchased a lifetime pocket pistol membership at Frontsight. I have been reading everything that I can find on the organization and I see that the positive certainly outweigh the negatives. I plan on going in a few months. Any good suggestions out there? Any positive tips and/or things that I want to avoid?

    Front Sight

    Congratulations,

    Sign up for the 4 day pistol course first, it's the basic training that will get you up to speed on your firearm to include carry concealed.

    You will shoot about 1000 rounds of ammo over the 4 days so make sure you take enough factory ammo with you.

    The days are long and include one night shoot with flashlight, so make sure you have a good tactical flash light with a fresh battery.

    Enjoy
