    I have two people so far telling me and have seen an email from what appears to be a government agency to a person saying Nevada will start honoring an Arizona Permit/License to Carry come July 1, 2011. This surprises me as Nevada dumped FL and UT and the only states they honor today do not issue Non Resident permit/licenses or have a very narrow Non Resident Issue Policy. That lead me to believe they wanted to shut out anyone who was not from the listed states. AZ does Issue Non Resident permits and they can be obtained by mail. It looks like it is so but until NV Posts that info on their official website it is not official. I would think an official announcement would be made in the near future.

    I for one hope it's true. Really wish they had decided to honor it a month ago when I was in Vegas. (not that anything bad happened, but you never know)

    For the reasons you listed (and training requirements) I would be rather surprised in Nevada accepted AZ licenses.

    A few years ago I emailed the Nevada ccw unit and asked them why AZ permits were not valid in NV since it appeared to me AZ met all of the qualifications. They emailed me back and said NV would not honor AZ permits because NV leos could not determine if an AZ permit was valid instantly using the computer in the NV leos car. NV leos would have to call an AZ ccw unit 1-800 number (open 24 hours) to verify permit. AZ ccw unit told me that AZ did not have the funds to enter AZ permits into some national database. Maybe that has changed. I really hope NV will honor AZ either way.

    I don't worry about it as I just OC when I'm in NV. I just don't go to Vegas which is no big deal as it's a waste of time! Yep ID meets all there requirements as well (Except the computer data base)!:supergrin:

    NV last posted changes to take effect July 1, 2010. I figure if they add more they will do it around that time.

    This issue interests me because I like to visit my money in Vegas from time to time.
    As I understand, OC is legal, even for out-of-state visitors, right?
    I don't know, but I'm guessing that OC would not be legal in casinos - can anyone confirm?
    And how about OC when I check into the hotel (you pretty much have to pass through or right by the casino to get to the check in desk)?
    And would I be able to 'transport' my sidearm in my luggage, failing all else? (I'd be traveling by car or motorcycle, not by air)

    I think it's ironic that Nevada, with some of the most permissive gun laws, won't recognize my Texas CHL. Especially since Texas recognizes NV CC licenses.
     
  9. OC is not recommended in a Casino. If you do, you will be asked to leave immediately.

    NVSCA is tasked to determine what states NV honors.

    Every May, NVSCA makes a final vote on what states to add or remove.

    NVSCA posts changes to the list of states NV honors in late-May/early-June (usually last week of May).

    Thanks Gary. Please keep us posted.
     
  12. OC is perfectly legal in casinos, but as swinokur posted the casinos themselves almost certainly won't allow it.

    OC groups have held events on the Strip - litter pick-ups and such - and LVMPD had a bit of legal trouble a few years ago over harassment of an OCer, so walking the Strip SHOULD be fine, as long as you stay on public property.

    Any news on NV accepting AZ permits?

    I wish NV would just pass a law recognizing all out of state ccw permits.

    Wouldn't that just be so much easier?

    Nevada Revised Statute 202.3689 requires the Nevada Department of Public Safety to review each states’ statutes that are used to issue a carrying concealed weapon permit. The DPS is directed to do the following:

    — Determine which states have an electronic database which is accessible 24 hours a day that identifies each individual who holds a valid permit to carry a concealed weapon issued by the State.

    So does this mean that Arizona now has an electronic database? Anyone know?

    And Texas isn't on that list. Does anybody know why - is it the database or the stringency issue?
     
  17. Does Texas require live fire of the firearm? That's a disqualifier right there.

    edit: just went and read the TX requirements. It requires "proficiency" in the use of a handgun, but no mention of a live fire requirement. That in and of itself would make NV not recognize TX.

    I'm not sure what you mean - 'proficiency' is certified by a live fire exercise for a Texas CHL.
     
  19. All it says is "proficiency" No mention of live fire. maybe that's the problem.

    Well, I'm still confused, but I'm used to that.

    So if I were to visit Vegas and stay in a hotel, does anyone have some advise on the best way to handle being in possession of a handgun?
