Default CCW @ Las Vegas

TL;DR
Cosmo: No problem
Aria: No problem
Caesers: No problem
Venetian: No problem (see below, luggage scanning)
Mandalay: No problem (see below, metal detectors)
Fashion Mall: No problem

--
Just wanted to share my experience with my Vegas trip. I carried at all times, including Cosmo, Aria, Caesars, Venetian, Mandalay, & the Fashion Mall.

Venetian:
As we got to the Venetian with the cab, I noticed the bell desk door was open ajar and I could see clearly that there were bell desk guys handing luggage to 2 security guys dressed in black wearing blue nitrile gloves putting the luggage on some type of platform (maybe conveyor belt).

Mandalay:
My wife wanted to go see the MJ show at Mandalay. I expected some extra security at Mandalay (for obvious reasons), and saw nothing different. As we approached the entrance of the theater, noticed they had metal detectors. I back-tracked to the security desk. I told the guard that I am attending the show and noticed that there are metal detectors and would like to check-in my firearm. He asked if I was an active LEO, which I declined. He said they couldn't check-in my firearm. I said no problem and thanked him for his time and walked away.

We had time to kill until the show started so we just walked around a bit. Security didn't appear to care about me carrying, nor asked if I had a carry permit. After a bit more walking around, we took a cab to Cosmo and put the gun in the room safe, and headed back to Mandalay for the show.

We got back to the theater and as I was emptying my pockets to walk through the metal detectors, I noticed my backup mag (steel) was still in my change pocket. I didn't take it out and I walked through the metal detector. Not a single peep or alert from the detectors.

Not sure why the detectors didn't go off with the steel mag.

I echo what you are saying, I have been in several casinos since that horrible day and I've never been stopped. And perhaps coincidentally I don't think I have been in any of the casinos you went into, it appears I am not as ritzy as you.

TI, Bellagio, Paris, MGM, Trop, NYNY, South Point, and Silverton to the best I can recall. Plus a few on Fremont St. No issues anywhere.

He said I could not go in with a weapon.
I started to walk out, and he said, "just tuck it in all the way" (no clip showing) and I could go in.
I AM CARRYING A GLOCK 43 and EXTRA MAG under my untucked shirt, but he never asked or frisked, just told me to tuck in knife......!!!
if they kicked out everyone with a weapon they would not make as much $$$$$$
What a difference four years make.

Due to NV knife laws, pre-2015, what security told you would have been illegal (felony).

Prior to 2015, it was illegal to conceal carry any type of knife.
This included folding knives that were folded closed.
It is legal to open carry knives.
So, in order to be legal, some part of the knife (pocket clip) had to be exposed at all time.

In 2015, NV changed their knife laws, so now it's legal to conceal carry knives (fixed blade or folder).
However, it is still illegal to conceal carry a machette/sword.

Itís still a gross misdemeanor in Clark County to carry a concealed knife with a blade of three inches or longer without written permission from the Sheriff.

Seriously? I carry a knife EVERYWHERE. I figured if I could in CA I could carry it anywhere except on an airliner. I've lost a couple that way because I don't even think about it and forgot to leave it at home.

Venetian is posted, btw. There's a little bitty sign that's facing inward, so you would normally only see it when LEAVING.

Seriously. For that matter, thereís no statewide preemption for knife laws in California, so you canít (legally) carry everywhere here, either. Counties and municipalities as well as other states can and do pass more stringent knife laws.

I didn't see any metal detectors at MB last time. Are they at all the casino entrances, or just the theater?
