We can all learn from others misfortunes. I saw an interesting thread on another forum once that I learned a lot from. This should spark some interesting discussion. Let's hear it. Did your gun fall on the floor of a public bathroom stall? Did a kid at the grocery store, ask his mommy why that man had a gun? Or even worse, have you ever had an AD? I will start. I was headed to Vegas with my wife, her sister and BIL. I was carrying a Bulgarian Makarov in an IWB holster. Nevada does not honor Utah's permits so at the last town before crossing the border, I locked my Makarov in the trunk. When we got to the hotel, I took my gun in it's holster into the hotel room and put it in a drawer. I never use the drawers in a hotel. I am a live out of the suitcase sort of guy when I am on vacation. We had a great couple of days in Vegas. Driving home when the trip was over, we hit the Utah border. That is when I realized my gun was still back at the Hotel in that drawer. Panic set in. I made a quick call to the hotel and asked to speak to the head of Security. I did that because I had noticed that all the security guards were packing heat at that hotel. I figured someone in security would be the least likely to freak out. The Security guy I talked to put me on hold, went to the room and secured my Makarov. Relieved, I told him I would call them back the next morning to work out shipping it back to my FFL. The next morning I called to work out the details. I was told that they turned my gun in to the Las Vegas Police department. Panic set in again. I just knew that I would be charged with something, or lose my gun. After several calls to the LVPD, I finally found the person who had my gun. To my surprise they were VERY nice about it. They even asked about the nice holster I had it in (HBE of coarse). They asked me to get them a paper from my FFL and they sent it home to my FFL free of charge. Let's just say that will never happen to me again. Actually I am headed to Vegas this weekend. The guns are staying home. Funny thing is, Las Vegas is one place that I would very much like to have my CCW on me at all times.
