    Looks like I'll be in and out of Nevada (Las Vegas) for work a bunch in the coming months. In my line of work, I try to carry all the time.

    I've been reading for a while on Nevada laws, reciprocity, etc. I've been to several attorney general websites and such. Here's are my questions:

    1. I understand there are two ways to carry in Nevada... to show up in person, take a Nevada firearms course, and ask a local sheriff to grant the permit OR I can hold a permit from one of a few states that issue non-resident permits (my home state is Colorado and is not recognized by Nevada).

    2. Is it easy to get approved in Nevada if I fly out there to take care of it before my work starts? Does anyone know a good sheriff who I could make contact with before I fly out there?

    3. Would it be easier to get a non resident permit from any of these states:
    In accordance with NRS 202.3689 (effective October 1, 2007) the State of Nevada will recognize the following States' CCW permit holders:

    Alaska
    Arkansas
    Kansas
    Louisiana
    Michigan
    Missouri
    Nebraska
    Ohio
    Tennessee
    West Virginia

    As I understand it none of these states are easy to get a non resident with, but I could have missed something.


    Thanks guys. Any insight you guys can offer will be very helpful.

    I am not familiar with other states non-resident permits, but I am with NV.

    http://www.handgunlaw.us/documents/NonResidentPermits.pdf

    According to the above link NV non-resident permit has the same requirement has a resident, all you have to do is come and take the class and do the permit paperwork.

    PM digitspaw (Kurt Gepke) here on GT for a NV class date. Kurt is a great guy and works with lots of people who have scheduling issues/time constraints.

    $105 for the permit and $25 for each Caliber on a auto u want to carry or any revolver u want. You have to qualify on each on separately. So it can add up fast. I have a AZ CCW and need to get on in NV where my Parents live. With AZ and NV I can carry in about 35 states.

    It's easy to get a NV ccw permit.

    It should take you two days. One day to take a CCW class and one day turn in your CCW packet, which must be done in person.

    CCW class will go over the particulars of CCWing in NV and you will have to qualify with the handguns you want to carry.

    NV requires you to qualify with every semi-auto pistol you want to carry. But revolvers are considered a category, so if you qualify with one, you can carry any revolver.

    +1 on contacting digitspaw (Kurt Gepke).
    I renewed my permit through him. Great instructor.
    He charged me $150 and, unlike other NV ccw instructors, he does not charge you for additional handguns.
    The course fee pays for the class and as many handguns you want to qualify with.

    I got mine in Vegas last December after taking the 1 day class from Kurt on a Sunday even. Went down to LVMPD on Tuesday with all my paperwork and to get printed. LVMPD issues all permits in Clark County.

    Had my permit in 23 days.

    Not entirely true.

    You can qualify with 100 guns if you want when you do the shooting protion. LVMPD doesn't care how many guns you qualify with initially. It is all covered under the $100.25 application/fingerprinting fee.

    BUT, if you want to ADD guns AFTER you get your permit, THEN it'll cost you $25. But that isn't PER gun. You can add another $100 guns and still only pay another $25.



    And I am another happy student of Kurt Gepke's. His class is great. And unlike other teachers, he will qualify you with as many guns as you'd like for no extra charge. Most instructors will let you qualify with up to three then charge you another $25 for each gun...which is stupid. All they have to do is stand there and make sure you can shoot, then sign a piece of paper...greedy bastards!

    Same length as resident permits, which is five years.
    It use to be three years, but it was changed a couple of years ago to five years.

    From your list of states to issue a non-resident permit. Nebraska does not issue such a permit for non-residents, and I wouldn't be surprised if a few others didn't as well.

    IIRC, while Nevada recognizes Non-Resident permits, the states that they recognize either have very strict criteria for Non-Res permits(place of business, etc..) or they do not issue them at all. This pretty much leaves you w/ no choice but to get a Nevada Non-Res.

    Go through those states you listed on handgunlaw.us and you'll see what I mean.

    No. How could they? After you are fingerprinted they have to run your prints with the FBI, then do some other background checks, print and laminate and mail your permit. it's not like a drives license.

    Mine took only 23 days to arrive after I did the paperwork and prints.
