    Good idea, but not workable, as I will have "sheeple" in the car with me. Has to be at the hotel. There were some good ideas posted. Haven't decided yet though on how to work it.

    1) Leave gun locked in trunk of car.
    2)Leave car at hotel outside N.Y.C. or at Metro North train station.
    3)Take public transit into city and back.

    It’s very common for BGs to hide items in toilet tanks. In prison inmates will hide things in the toilet bowl itself. You need long gloves for a proper search.

    Can't do that. Need to pick up 4 "sheeple" in NYC!

    I use one of these when I travel. Comes with a cable that you can wrap around the plumbing or radiator pipe in a hotel room, or the bed frame and slip it under the mattress.

    COM safes are inexpensive enough, get two keyed the same! Put part of the weapon in one and the other part in the other. Lock them up, one in the trunk and the other back at the hotel.
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    When the family went to Great Wolf Lodge they did not have a room safe so I took my COM cable looped it around the pipes behind the access door in the bathroom and locked it to the pipes. Better than nothing.

    there should be no reason for a toilet malfunction if the do not disturb sign is used and is only gone for an hour, i vote to put it in a locking case and ask the people at the desk to hold it but if you have sealed bags in the back of the toilet that shouldn't cause any problems

    I work for a high-end Hotel in my area as Chief of Security.

    Check with the Hotel's concierge about their policies concerning guns and safes. They are going to watch you put it (or anything) in there, I guarantee it. It's their safe and they are liable, so you are going to have to just ask. You don't have to give your name, just inform them of your intent to stay with them soon and so on.

    If they are uncomfortable or outright prohibitive of the idea, then bring your own means of securing the weapon. There are a few travel friendly safes that can be secured to beds, plumbing, etc.

    I've seen a number of these, and they work well according to the Guests that I've asked...Pacsafe Anti-Theft Bags & Travel Security Products

    Good luck!

    Donít mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.

    The range is a small underground block house next to a baseball field and a basketball court. Real discreet. There's a small shopping center (strip of stores and supermarket) across the street with a D&D and a Subway shop....maybe stop for a sandwich and excuse yourself for a minute and go across the street...after setting up what you've got to do before hand...i

    Lock it up in that and leave it in the hotel's master safe. Just ask them to put your valuables in their house safe while you are out for a few hours.
    Thanks for the link. I need one of those.

    I think what's being missed here is that the discovery of a hidden gun will surely raise a red flag (drugs,crime) if discovered by someone who doesn't know you from Adam. The first reaction would be that you have something to hide. Now I know that if the gun is well hidden the chances are slim it would be found but if by chance it is discovered you can bet LEO will quickly be involved. You will then have the lengthy inconvenience of a ride to the substation where you will have to prove your intentions. I can assure you they will not easily release you until all facts are discussed at length and are proven. IMO, Keep it simple and use the honest approach by locking up the gun in either the room safe, the front desk safe or your vehicle with the slide locked and mags removed.
    To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them. Ė Richard Henry Lee 1788
