    Vegas bound next month! Any clipped carry concerns?

    I am going to be in Vegas next month for training/vacation. I looked up the knife laws and it seems that I will be okay with a folding knife under 3" in the city. My question is for anyone who lives in the area or can speak from experience. Are the casinos usually okay if they see pocket clips, or will they freak out and have security hassle me? I would like to carry my new Dice down there; since it kind of has that gaming theme going for it.

    I've been there twice and never had a problem (got married there on the second trip!). It's pretty much like anywhere else, don't draw attention to yourself and nobody will bother you.

    Have a fun and safe trip!

    Thanks LC! I was hoping it would be that way.

    We had our honeymoon there 11 years ago. I wasn't into knives at that time.

    The last time I was in Vegas I carried a Chaparral without issue.

    I'm back from Vegas. I carried my Chapparal and only had two minor issues. The Stratosphere tower makes everyone go through metal detectors before letting you go in the elevator. Luckily, I was staying at the Stratosphere hotel. I just had to take my knife back to the room before I could enter. The Hoover Dam also runs metal detectors before you can enter. A quick walk back to the car took care of that one. Other than that, no issues with security at any of the other casinos.

    Yeah it's pretty good as far as ability to carry a small knife. I'm in Vegas currently (Have been since Monday), and I didn't bring any checked luggage so all my stuff had to pass carry on security so I've been knifeless for almost a week...and it's driving me crazy. I've already had several instances where a knife would have been very handy.

    Rigger, I read somewhere that there is a huge knife shop in Vegas. I also read that it was overpriced, but so is everything.
