    Sure, some will probably take it that way. And you'll risk their taking it to the next level, whatever that level might be.

    Seems clear to me that consumption of ammo is tied to usage at the range. So, I'd dispose of the discards there, at the range, avoiding the whole potential for misunderstanding altogether.

    The "grey man" principle: keeping under the radar, where being under the radar is advantageous and/or where being "spotted" is disadvantageous. Particularly in this hateful, burn-the-2A climate we're experiencing, it seems pointless to give anti-gunners ammo on a silver plate.

    Think of it this way: you're carrying concealed. Why divulge that? Discards that are clearly firearms related might well do exactly that. And, when it comes right down to it, you're also at a firearms training gig where you likely have a bunch of gear. If any of that gear's left in the hotel room, you're potentially risking having theft.

    That said, it probably doesn't matter. After all, you're not a criminal, you're doing nothing nefarious or wrong, and what you choose to do with trash needn't be construed as anything but opting to avoid littering. In the end, it would see some anti-gunner with a passion actually seeing this and acting upon it. Possibly not even worth worrying about, depending on your POV.

    If the possibilities trouble you, don't leave them in the room.

    Save them...

    Pile them up in the trash in the restroom of one of those "posted" places of business.

    However, that would require removing firearm to comply with law.

    My buddy works for a hotel and he has found 8-10 rounds of ammo in a room while they are cleaning a room. If the person is still there they return the ammo if not then usually store them I think incase someone calls that they are missing ammo or turn over to the police (I think)

    I'd probably just stack them up on my breakfast plate and walk off and leave them.

    As I see it, there are 3 viable options:

    1. Throw them in the trash at the hotel. No reason you should feel guilty for using their trash facilities to get rid of trash.
    2. Throw them in the trash at the range. No reason to take the trash back with you when they should have adequate trash facilities there.
    3. Roll up to the nearest McDonald's, swagger up to the counter like a boss and throw your garbage at the till monkey while simultaneously ordering them to dump your empty boxes in their trash. Also tell them you'll take a Bic Mac meal to go.

    Toss them in the trash can in front of the local bank... just before you leave town.

    Trash them at the range or drop them in a dumster outside. I personally would not throw them in the wastebasket in my room.

    You really struggle with this question? If your not doing something illegal who cares?

I was also thinking of discarding them in the public trash so as to not advertise which room I am in.
    Discard them in the hotel. But be sure to leave some bloodied shredded clothing behind.
