    I've been staying in this hotel for a couple years. I came back this week and when coming in tonight I noticed that the hotel has a nice new green 30.06 posting on their front window.

    I plan to talk to the GM tomorrow morning and give him a no guns no cash card. If they don't take down the sign - they've lost my and my companies business.

    ed: I also sent a note to the TSRA to let them know.

    Sad that so many businesses are doing this. Thanks for the heads up.

    I bet they don;t warn folks at reservation time.

    make a reservation there and then show up after 6PM - halt at the door, call in ask manager to come out - tell him you need refund.

    When I left the hotel yesterday morning, I met with an assistant manager and asked him when the 30.06 sign went up since it wasn't there when I was here 2 weeks ago. I gave him a no-guns no cash card and told him that I am a law abiding person and that since they posted the sign, I would be breaking the law if I stayed there anymore.

    I said that from circumstances like this in other Hilton properties, I personally know that Hilton corporate policy has no issues with firearms as long as they are carried in compliance with state law.

    I told him that until they take down the sign, I will not be staying there anymore and that the others from my company will also not be staying here and that I am posting the hotel as gun unfriendly with the TSRA and to the firearms related groups where I participate.

    I gave him my card and asked to have someone more senior in management call me.

    This should have a financial impact as we spend about $7,500/month there and have for the past 4 years.

    You are correct. They do not warn on reservations.

    I'll make that point when the GM calls me.

    I would make a complaint to corporate too.

    The director of security for the hotel called me today.
    He tried to tell me that it was a law mandated by the Hilton corporation that all Hilton properties post the 30.06 signs. After trying to get him to understand that a company cannot make a law only the government - I realized that this was a waste of time.

    He did not think it was a problem that guests are not notified when reservations are made that they would be violating the law.
    His grand solution was that I could check my firearm into a safe deposit box :what:when I stay at the hotel.

    time to escalate to Hilton corporate.....
