    Well send him back to Chicago so he won't be depriving some nearby village of their idiot.

    Well, that's not really far... I know the guy and he ain't an

    idiot and is a pretty cool guy.
    I had a thought early this morning that he might not be at fault here. I posted a little while back on a business related forum while discussing this trip and convention with others who will be there and in charge that I had my airline tickets finally ... and that Delta had the Nerve to only allow 5 handguns and 2 rifles.... I'm thinking that some of the powers that be running this convention may have gotten bent about this and planted this behind the scenes to disuede (sp?) me from carring. Some of the folks on the board are pretty tight ass.

    I live here in Reno and went to the GSR(Grand Sierra Resort) tonight. I went in thru the shopping mall entrance and there are no signs there. I went up stairs to the main entrance and the only sign I found is inside the doors on the far right. It is only about 4 by 6 inches with small writting and very easy to miss. If they discover it they can only tell you to leave. They didn't to me. Have fun in Reno and be careful.

    Since you found this needed to be posted to the forum, I feel I need to respond.

    Yes I live in IL out in farm country. I don't consider myself to be an idiot but I also don't consider myself to be perfect.

    If slamming me makes you feel like a better person, so be it. I just wish I could be as perfect as you.

    BTW, nice to meet you too.

    I am one of the board members and most everyone including staff knows I carry at the board meetings in Indiana where my permit is valid. There may be a couple of the new ones that don't know I carry and I won't volunteer the information.

    You would be surprised at how many carry in their home state but don't have a permit that is valid in IN or just don't want to deal with the airlines.

    So there is no issue with the "powers that be" that I am aware of.

    Far from perfect...

    The original poster's "friend" affected everyone that may frequent that hotel/casino for as long as it's in business including Nevada residents who patronize the establishment. I enjoy when visitors come to my State to spend money since it keeps my property and sales taxes down.

    However, I do not appreciate when visitors may make it more difficult for me to enjoy one of the comforts of living in Nevada by poking a pointy stick at a business owner or management over lawful CCW. One of the comforts of living in Nevada is that I am a NV CFP holder and I carry everywhere it's legal to do so including hotel/casinos I patronize. The original poster's "friend" may end up turning the establishment into the next Stratosphere which is a LV Strip Hotel/Casino with a strict no carry policy except for on duty LEOs and their own security personnel. Part of responsible CCW and CCW etiquette is keeping it concealed. They have gone to the extreme of having metal detectors in certain locations of the premises. Fortunately signage outside of "public" (government owned or leased buildings) has no force of law outside of simple trespass but there is nothing stopping a hotel/casino from putting up metal detectors which is what the Stratosphere does.

    Here is what the manager of the hotel wrote:

    " I had forgotten that we have posted signs at all of our
    entrances stating that firearms are not allowed inside the building, due
    to that if you bring your weapon, you will need to check it at security.
    Sorry for my error in previous emails."

    On this is the Grand Sierra Hotel by the way.



    Suggestions and comments please.
    The CCW class instructor told us that the hotel may request that you do not carry a firearm, but they cannot have you arrested for it. Just because it's posted, it doesn't make it a law. The hotel can ask you to leave if they find they you have a firearm, however.

    Are there specific NV rules for signage at a business.... One of the few good things in my state of S.C. about CC is that the rules for signs here are pretty hard to follow and most places that post a sign do it wrong so I'm not breaking the law when carrying concealed in them.

    2nd and this is a stretch.... is there anyone on this list who is in Reno and could actually go and see if there are 'now' signs on all the entrances to the Grand Sierra? There is a good chance the manager writing this email is just throwing up a smoke screen...

    All I can say is I'll so the same for anyone else on this list who might be coming to Greenville, SC sometime.
    I just took the class and the instructor basically said that businesses like that are public access and if they are not a goverment building, airport, or school, you can legally carry a firearm. They may ask you to leave but they cannot have you arrested for carrying the gun. They may have you arrested for trespassing if you refuse to leave, however.

    I don't think that the Grand Sierra hotel manager is bluffing. I have seen similar signs at the entrances to Harrah's Reno.

    What I can't figure out is why most businesses can't just

    post signs that say, " No Illegal Weapons Allowed!" Is the simplest thing to put up and covers them if a bad thing happens...

    In my convaluted mind this sends the right message to everyone.

    Insurance liability reasons. However, unless you are screened or you're made carrying they won't know. In many cases those signs are in small print at the foot of the door where the typical person would not see them.
