Cosmopolitan is easily the way to go if you can find a reasonable rate! The balcony is a game changer, actually slept (well, passed out) on our balcony last year. Next year, check out the wrap-around suite, my favorite room in Vegas by a long shot that isn't ten grand a night.

I don't really like the Luxor label, but those edge spots are HAWT!

Don't worry, I'll be murdering them and redesigning a better, faux-shaped laminated label hopefully. Same with the Mandalays. They need to roughly match the style of the stardusts, in order to be a cohesive mixed set.

I also just asked in Walmart if they sold guns. I got some funny looks for that one, but they pointed me in the direction of dicks sporting goods, or apple valley Walmart lol

I just want to see guns for sale in a supermarket. That would make my trip complete.

First, great thread, I’ve really enjoyed it. I haven’t been to Vegas in a few years and now I’m planning a trip.

Second, if you want the true American experience, see below. There’s a buffet, gas pumps, and most of the guns are not behind a counter. ‘Murica!

Dick's here sells guns... Mostly long guns, tho.

Isn't there a kick-ass range in LVNV where you can rent fully autos?
Unfortunately I'm out of time. I was a bit early back to LA so I thought I'd go shopping for guns in grocery and sporting stores.

Final post from America. Such an epic trip and I miss Vegas already. I'd love to come back again, and I'm really hoping it will be next year and maybe i can do a trip report as I destroy my bankroll playing crazy mixed games with @detroitdad and his Michigan crew.

The airport security were as officious and inefficient as I knew they would be. Luckily I expected such incompetence and arrived early. They were particularly suspicious of the 12 racks of chips I had split between both of our carry-ons :p

I've got a 14 hour flight to Brisbane and then another 5 to Perth. Luckily I'm in business class for the first leg, so I'll lay back and drink a few champagnes.
