Firearm training for LEOs are totally different than for civilians since the mindset is personal protection. The mindset for LEOs is public safety. LEOs are also required to apprehend subjects. You're trying to get career LEOs to think along the lines of what's reasonable for a civilian. Civilians are not required to and in fact it's discouraged that you do. I have trained people in scooters and wheelchairs. If they can hit the target at 3, 5 and 7 yards using the present NVSCA qualification standards for NV CFPs, as far as I'm concerned they're good.

    Also keep in mind that many of these qualifications occur on an indoor range where you can't do anything other than standing or perhaps sitting.

    They are also not also entirely aware of the law.

    The two big issues I have was the their knowledge of non-resident permits.

    Nevada has a statutory definition of residency which is NRS 482.103. If you are required to get a NV DL and NV plates on your vehicle you are a Nevada resident and therefore may be summoned to serve on a jury in Nevada. If you're a NV resident, you're required to get a NV CFP within 60 days of establishing residency.

    Derringers. If you have qualified with any revolver, you are automatically authorized to carry any single or double barrel derringer per NRS 202.3653. What it should be is semi-auto and other rather than revolvers to remove the confusion.

    If the NVSCA is going to hold everything to the higher background check standard Nevada with the State Criminal Repository then our CFPs need to be NICS exempt.
    I was surprised by their lack of knowledge as well, especially since they are the ones setting the training standards. As I mentioned on numerous occasions, my brother lives in Douglas County and he was angry about having to wait 130 days for his permit application to be approved. What was it that the Undersheriff said about 3 applicants getting arrested after the background check was returned to their office? I did not catch it all. I was listening to the forum more than I was watching it and I was at work. I got interrupted a bunch of times.

    It's good about the shooting positions. I don't mind doing it if required, but it won't be easy like I mentioned. I missed a lot of that discussion and what I heard were complaints from the audience on the issue.

    I just hope that you guys can get the semiauto thing taken care of and the NICS exemption. I don't know how possible to get that stuff on the ballet for this upcoming session, but it would be sweet if it gets passed.

    Good luck on that!

    I was surprised to hear about some of the CCW training changes such as demonstrating ability to handle a firearm. I did not understand the shooting position thing. Although I can still work out a little bit, my knees are not in the best of shape and I have had back surgery. Whatever is required, I will do what I can.
    I asked Sheriff Skinner about that. He said it is on their form, but they don't "require" serial numbers.

    This should be fixed now as all sheriffs should implement the new NCSA statewide application form.

    If not, I would recommend correspondence with the NSCA, your local sheriff, your legislators.

    Thanks!

    I have a feeling that Sheriff Skinner is "revamping" our county program. He also has seemed to clean house as far as his admin people go.

    I know that when I originally applied, the lady that processed the form said it was required.

    And I will state again, that Sheriff Skinner was a great help in identifying the problem I was having with my CCW, and correcting it!!

    That question was brought up in the forum. They were going to look into it. I don't know if they actually recorded it or not.

    Default The last one was

    You could obtain the last one on DVD. It wouldn't surprise me if they record all hearings in the legislative meeting and conference rooms as a matter of standard practice.

    Contact Frank Adams of the NVSCA or your State legislator. If this one was recorded, it would be available from the same source as the last one.

    Immediately after the proceedings, I asked a capitol employee about purchasing a CD. Unfortunately, he indicated no one asked to have the proceedings recorded.

    Next time, we'll have to ask in advance to have it recorded!

    It might be costly, but it would be cool if they video taped it and made DVDs. I would go for one of those.

    Default Question RE Nevada Recognition of Texas CHL

    Does anyone know the reason why Nevada doesn't recognize Texas' CHL? Will be moving there soon and wonder why. Thanks.
