    Carrying in a Hotel that has alcohol

    Going to be visiting the Mossoula Courtyard Marriott, Monday, for a week. I noticed that on https://doj.mt.gov/enforcement/concealed-weapons/ that "any place where alcoholic beverages are sold, dispensed and consumed," no concealed weapon may be carried. Seems like a no-brainer to me, but have to ask. Can I carry concealed in the hotel? Can I carry open in the hotel?

    Thanks for any/all responses.

    Yes. You can OPEN carry in bars as long as you are not drinking.

    AND THEY CANNOT PREVENT YOU FROM OPEN CARRYING in their hotel! Montana Code Annotated 70-24-110 states that a landlord of a hotel cannot prevent a guest from possessing a legal firearm on their property. (Take a copy of the law with you in case you get questioned.)

    70-24-110. Landlords and tenants -- no firearm prohibition allowed. A landlord or operator of a hotel or motel may not, by contract or otherwise, prevent a tenant or a guest of a tenant from possessing on the premises a firearm that it is legal for the tenant or guest to possess. A landlord or operator of a hotel or motel may prohibit the discharge of a firearm on the premises except in self-defense.

    As for concealed carry, it is prohibited but only in "a room in which alcoholic beverages are sold, dispensed, and consumed." So you can carry concealed with a valid permit everywhere that alcohol is not sold, dispensed, or consumed.

    45-8-328. Carrying concealed weapon in prohibited place -- penalty. (1) Except for legislative security officers authorized to carry a concealed weapon in the state capitol as provided in 45-8-317(1)(k), a person commits the offense of carrying a concealed weapon in a prohibited place if the person purposely or knowingly carries a concealed weapon in:
    (a) portions of a building used for state or local government offices and related areas in the building that have been restricted;
    (b) a bank, credit union, savings and loan institution, or similar institution during the institution's normal business hours. It is not an offense under this section to carry a concealed weapon while:
    (i) using an institution's drive-up window, automatic teller machine, or unstaffed night depository; or
    (ii) at or near a branch office of an institution in a mall, grocery store, or other place unless the person is inside the enclosure used for the institution's financial services or is using the institution's financial services.
    (c) a room in which alcoholic beverages are sold, dispensed, and consumed under a license issued under Title 16 for the sale of alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises.
    (2) It is not a defense that the person had a valid permit to carry a concealed weapon. A person convicted of the offense shall be imprisoned in the county jail for a term not to exceed 6 months or fined an amount not to exceed $500, or both.

    Your PA concealed permit should be valid in Montana. Check here:

    Also, youy might like to know that there is a firearm range about 7-10 miles from town called the Deep Creek Range. The day-use range for non-members is open 5 days a week. It is closed to everyone including members on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. It has twenty-four covered firing points for shooting between (25) and (200) yards. They are available from 9:00 a.m. until 8:00p.m. or dusk, whichever comes first, The fee for using this range is $3.00 per day per shooter. Fees are payable at gate. Correct change is required.
