What's in the cases? Possible smart arse responses.....1) Why it's a portable meth lab. 2) Cocaine and cash, just waiting on the hookers. 3) Film making equipment, plastic sheets, and lots of lubricant... some friends and I are going to have a little party later and you are welcome to stop by the room when you are finished with your shift. 4) Machine guns....no, er um, no machine guns whatsoever, is what I meant to say! 5) (speaking to one of the cases) Look, another nosey person who wants to join the rest of you. Seriously though, when I transport MG's, (including bringing them into my hotel room through the front lobby), I always keep them in a nondescript, inconspicuous case. Plastic golf club bag transport case, suit case, tennis racket bags, duffle bag (usually in the Hello Kitty scheme), camping gear containers, non gun related cardboard box, etc. Except for the lobby of the Gold Vault Inn near Knob Creek. We just walk right through the lobby machine guns in hand
HA! Brilliant. All great. Goodwill stores are a great source for $5 suitcases, bags, etc. I've hauled gear of all sorts with sturdy cases/bags from there.
NFA Amnesty, good on you too for your plan too. Whatever it takes to just go about your own bidness and hey, shouldn't that desk clerk be checking the perimeter cameras, thwarting ice machine thieves, etc.?

I love the Gold Vault! They even have a sign on the front desk saying they have clothes for cleaning guns. I want to sit in the lobby cleaning my M3 and M16 to see what theyd say lol
That policy changed after their towels took such a beating years back they opted for clothes. There is at least one other place that does it as well. I doubt they will let you clean your stuff in the lobby, that's only for clean guns! Dirty stuff back out to the lot until it's nice enough to bring in.

Recommend a letter from the TCA, TATA, and the local TUSCA Gun Club, that they are being removed from your list of recommended places to stay with a CC to the Corporate office could get their attention. Also a letter to the editor of the local paper would be in order. Most likely alot of folks would not stay there anymore.
Vote with your wallet.

I think we all learn about Holiday Inn & what there capably of doing to a law-abiding person who is minding his own business .
They even gave him a hard time giving his money back for the room .
