    Default HELP! Nevada CCW Ruled Confirmation

    All, I am planning a trip to Las Vegas tomorrow and I want to confirm my understanding of Las Vegas CCW Laws.


    I currently hold a CCW permit in Utah and I do NOT have a CCW in Las Vegas. We are planning on driving to the strip for a couple of days for a mini vacation.


    My understanding is as follows:

    1. When I get to the Nevada border, I need to do one of two things.

    a. Unload my gun, and put it in the trunk of the car. (Or)
    b. Place my loaded gun (with one in the chamber) in the glove compartment of my car so it is "not on my person"


    2. Once I get to Las vegas strip, I'd like to be able to take my gun to my hotel room and keep it locked in the safe so I can have it at night.


    My question is, can I transport the unloaded gun up to my hotel room if it is in the case? This is where I'm a bit confused. Or do I just need to leave the loaded gun in my car?


    Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Nevada is an Open Carry state, so you can wear it holstered OWB. When you get to the casino, they will likely have a policy against carrying a firearm but it is not against the law. I have OC'd in the hard rock and it didn't take long before security approached me. They were polite and asked me to either put the gun in my car or hotel room if I was going to stay on the casino floor. That being said, you may not want to be inconvenienced if someone freaks out and calls metro pd for a "man with a gun" call.

    And, glove compartment is NOT mandatory (although it is an option.) Handgun can be anywhere in your vehicle except concealed upon your person.

    And, by the way, long guns cannot have an unexpended round in the chamber.

    Also, 'concealed upon your person' includes items that one would normally wear (ex. backpacks, purses, day planners, jackets, etc...). It doesn't matter if it's in the back seat or not.

    (I'm also from UT and have a UT CFP) I bypassed this by obtaining an Arizona Permit, which is now recognized by NV. Basicly you will need to contact AZ and get "a (free) packet".The packet will give you the info to get the AZ permit. You send them a copy of your UT permit or other aproved evidence that you have had some sort of firearms training, Fingerprint cards (they send you this in the packet) and $60.
