It does show near the top of the page that this is "Nevada Discussion and Firearm News." I admit that I did not see that line and was also wondering where the OP lived and why he did not state his state. Now I know that he should not have needed to although it would not have hurt to add the words "in Nevada" somewhere in the post.

Sorry, Nevada is out of my knowledge base. :)
To end the confusion I live in Reno, Nevada.
Okay, so I did some digging and found some mildly confirmed information. If you are explicitly open carrying, then you are fine. But at some point several people around the city had jackets that covered there guns and many were complaining that these people were quickly taking off their jackets, then putting them back on as a way to brandish. The CCW instructor I talked to said almost always the case gets thrown out, but officers have been known to hassle people. The advice I was given was to either keep the jacket on, or make it really obvious that you are open carrying. Everyone who has seen court cases first hand that I have talked to said the laws are just vague, so not only do people slip up, but LEO will go after people who have done nothing wrong because they don't really know either.
Not really the answers I wanted, but sounds like solid advice to me.
