    NV and HI doesn't let one carry if you have a pa permit, suck but oh well. Anyone who lives in lv or hi and know whats acceptable for protection? I'm more concerned with vegas and getting robbed leaving a casino. I've heard too many stories about people watchign you play in the casino and following you out of the place and then robbing you.

    Yeah, if you stay in the "tourist" part of Hawaii you'll be okay. My wife was born on Oahu and we visit every year. She has a big family there, and they've taken me a few places I wouldn't even feel safe with a gun.

    They all think I'm a local because I'm there so often and because I have family there, but most locals there are more racist against mainlanders than I've ever experienced anywhere. they go out of their way to start shit. I had to walk my friend whom was stationed there as a Marine to his car.

    Dude, seriously.

    Relax, you're not going to get robbed.

    Think about what you are saying.
    You want to take a gun with you. To a casino...

    This isn't the mother fucking wild west. You're not riding out into the ponderosa on your lonesome after leaving the saloon, partner.

    Dawt.. I was wondering wtf some of the guys on here were talking about saying you don't need anything/it's safe. i always hear horror stories about it out there. I guess they "stay in the roped area" so to speak like down in aruba ect. Step outside and you end up Natalie Holloway

    Carry your fucking gun. Follow the rules for checking your pistol in your luggage, and carry it. I have never missed my pistol so much as when I was at SHOT in Vegas.

    Seriously...

    I spend a decent amount of time in vegas. There's a shit ton of crime, and violent crime.

    Like footrat said, carry your fucking guns.

    The number one flaw we have as humans is to believe we are better than we are, in all aspects of life. It's not the wild west, but it's not far off either. Just because we shelter ourselves from the bad stuff in the malls of Caesar's or the picturesque beaches of some tourist city in Hawaii doesn't mean someone doesn't want to bring the fight to us.

    Let the Colorado and Nebraska shootings of recent be evidence that people want YOU dead. People don't like YOU. And there are sick fucks out there that will shoot up malls and churches, even during the holidays. Just because it hasn't happened in a casino or on a beach yet, doesn't mean it won't.

    CARRY YOUR FUCKING GUNS.

    I'm done ranting. :o

    Uh, yeah, I would say so. I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm not claiming it's some sort of "south Central LA" or anything, but don't wonder off the boulevard out there. Most locals are not really friendly as they show on the Travel Channel. There are a lot of heavy ICE users out there that don't care for "tourist" there.

    Two things you don't want to do in the presence of " locals " there is :

    - hit on the local women.

    - surf "private" beaches, stay on Wikiki and the other tourist friendly beaches and you'll be okay.

    - stay out of the local bars also.

    I also wouldn't keep anything valuable in your car, car prowlers are big there.

    I've traveled there 8 times, each time for 2-3 weeks. Where my family stays is considered a pretty shady part of town called Kalihi. When I tell some people where we are staying they tell me " betta go inside befo dark brah ". I'm talking mostly about Oahu, because that's were we always go.

    The guys they hate the most there are the stationed military because they start the most stuff there. They hate those guys all pretty exclusively. They are not at all Passive when it comes to someone they don't like. They are very very vocal there, and like I said, will go out of there way to start shit with you. They call em "Howly boy".

    I get a good pass because a lot of her family are sort of "thuggish" there. I mean, I love Hawaiian's (I'm married to one) but I don't blame them because most are born and raised pretty wild. Her uncle gives his 3 year old "beer" to help me sleep .WTF (I have cell phone pics somewhere)

    I've been in two altercations there, one of them was with her cousin (doesn't like me cause I'm a mainlander). What's cool is they aren't quick to pull guns or weapons out, and all the altercations I've seen were just some fist fights. And they believe in " skin to skin " meaning 1 on 1 fights. So worst case scenario is you'll get a good beating, but will live. I was in the hospital last time as I got knocked out by a sucker punch.

    Like I said, I'm not trying to paint a bad picture of the place, because I truly love it there, just don't be niave in thinking it's all good in the hood there and watch your 6.
