    Hotel Security

    Interesting article: http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2013/oct/08/las-vegas-eye-sky-guards-money-not-guests/

    And it makes a good point. Be careful in hotel hallways! I remember a time a few years ago when a drunken buffoon confronted me in a hallway late at night, somehow thinking I had his girlfriend in my room. Fortunately, I talked my way around him and made it back to my room before he could throw any punches. He pounded on my door until I got security up there to take him away, but I remember thinking that if I had not been near my room when he confronted me, I would have ended up with some serious bruises or scars.

    I have to admit that I thought there were at least a few cameras in the hotel hallways but not near as many as on the casino floor. Good to know the truth!

    Interesting. Main Street Station has multiple cameras on every floor in the room hallways. I wouldn't think they are fake and the fixtures are for show only, but who knows?

    For all the knocks the Hard Rock takes around here... I do notice that in the HRH and Paradise Towers, which were just opened in '09 or '10, there're cameras outside and in the elevators and several along the hallways of each floor. I also know that security personnel make routine trips from one end of the hallway to the other pretty much each hour. Their security folks always seem to have something to deal with and seem to be pretty attentive to things.

    I keep a knife on me and have the missus keep pepper spray and I taught her how to punch.....hard....and for the eyes and nuts.

    I also teach her that if she gets hit that she doesn't have time to be "hurt" and to take action to get herself out of a bad situation.

    Does having a security person check every one for a key card before allowing them on the elevators make you feel more safe? I do - but I wonder if that is a false sense of safety? I make sure to close my door tight, but haven't thought about walking to the room by myself as being dangerous. I haven't felt un-safe or scared, I hope I am not being naïve.

    just an FYI Clark County and Las Vegas both prohibit the concealed carry of a knife with a blade length over 3" and in Reno it is 2"

    3" is really not all that long of a blade for a lot of folding knives

    Ha mine is enough that it doesn't skirt laws but enough to "stick" (I'm SOL in Reno tho').

    I never checked on the pepper spray which I've considered upgrading to mace. I have actually learned to desensitize myself to pepper spray.

    There was a thing years ago where people were robbing others with pepper spray. No way I can desensitize myself to mace tho'.....no one can.

    Not to get to far off topic but it's easy to desensitize oneself to mace. As an ex police officer, mace is almost completely useless as it just tends to piss off the person you are using it against instead of helping to subdue them. When I was a cop the only thing we used mace for was practical jokes on each other. We would spray the air vents on someone's cruiser and when they turned on the a/c, poof they were maced. Happened to me several times and it had very little effect. The vast majority of pds have switched to pepper spray because it's so much more effective

    Check out a short youtube video, search term: self defense nose break. If done correctly, the assailant is stunned for a moment and the eyes tear up. Women are typically shorter than their assailant, so the heel of the hand to the nose is effective.

    I maced myself once. ONCE. I stopped carrying it after that. ;)

    Self defense classes are great. I can break your nose with my palm, know where to kick you to slow you down and now I know how to pop out your eyes with my thumbs. Don't mess with me, bro!

    Well straight mace isn't sold anymore. I think it's called triple action which is a mix of pepper spray and mace.

    I really shouldn't call it mace anyway but tear gas. Mace is really a brand name.

    Man isn't that the truth!!! My whole office is 2 men and 22 women and they talked me into setting up a self-defense class for all of us. These ladies really took it seriously and I pity any attacker in our parking lot at night! :nono:
