    Default Getting gun from car to hotel room

    I have both Arizona and Utah CCWs but neither are recognized in Nevada (Utah was dropped from the list July 1st). I travel to Nevada frequently. I know that it's OK to carry a loaded gun in a vehicle in Nevada but, now that neither of my permits is recognized, how do I get the gun from the car into my hotel room. (I don't like locking guns in the car.) I know that I could open carry legally in Nevada but this could cause a stir in most places so I won't do that. I've read that carrying in a container which is held like a briefcase is concealed carry. What about zipping the gun into an inside pocket in a suitcase that clearly isn't readily accessible? (Also, the suitcase is on wheels so technically it won't be carried.) Would this be OK or is it concealed carry? I'd like to hear what some on you that live in Nevada thinks. Thanks!

    I had a little bit of the same problem when traveling in Illinois delivering sheep from Ohio. Before entering Illinois I stopped and put my CC in a compartment in the back of my vehicle, and kept the magazine in my pocket.
    When we stopped for the night I put the pistol in my zip up camera case and carried it in with my suit cases. As soon as I got in the motel, I reloaded and put it back where it belonged.
    I'm not sure this is to letter of the law, but I also didn’t want to leave my CC in the vehicle.

    Last Summer we went to Atlantic City for a vacation and stopped on the way at King of Persha, New Jersey for the night.
    I woke up at my normal 4:30 AM and looked outside to see police cars everywhere.
    I got dressed and walked out into the motel hallway to find a swat officer standing there, he asked where I was going. I told him down to the lobby, he said if you go down you can’t come back up. I told him my wife was in the room and I would just stay where I’m at.
    I told my wife to get ready I don’t know what is going on but we are leaving. When we got down to the parking lot there were residence sitting every where and the police had the building surrounded, al;l exits blocked, and a swat team with an armored vehicle was at the far end of the parking lot aiming up at the motel. The officers removed their barricade and let us out, in the parking lot next door it looked like an Army of swat teams and local police. The next morning I picked up a paper in Atlantic City and found that there was an armed bank robber hold up in the motel and had given up after a 16 hour stand off.

    Thanks Debray! The idea of having it unloaded is a great one. Does anyone from Nevada know if it's OK to carry an unloaded gun fron a car into a hotel room?

    It's legal to transport unloaded firearms in a locked container from your vehicle to your hotel room.

    Thanks Quiet! Do you have a reference or link or something that shows that this is legal in Nevada. It sounds like a good solution to me. I always carry a lockable gun container when I travel for places like California.

    That's going to be a headache. I go through that here all the time since I do not have a CCW. I can't get one because my county sheriff has declared that I do not show sufficient cause.

    If you can, you're better off getting your nonresident Nevada CFP since you go there all the time. Then, you won't have to worry about that kind of stuff.

    Good luck!

    Unload it, put it in your luggage then take it up to your room inside of the luggage. When you get to your room, load it.

    Thanks! That's the way I'll do it. Right now I'm working with the Arizona Concealed Weapons Permit Unit to get their CWP data base established on the National Law Enforcement Telecommunications System (NLETS) so that Nevada Law enforcement will have 24/7 access to the Arizona database. The Director of the Nevada Chief's and Sheriff's Assoc. (Frank Adams) said that they will consider recognizing Arizona permits if this is implemented.

    Hey everyone, I hate to hijack the thread but I have a similar question. I have an Arizona CCW permit and am looking into getting one for Nevada because I also dont want to leave my gun in the car. Whats the laws say about carrying concealed inside the casino till you get to your room?

    Any info on what the turn around time on a Nevada CWP is?

    Illegal. Technically under NRS 202.350 you can't carry concealed anywhere even your domicile or place of business without a NV CFP or one that is on the NV DPS recognition list if you are not a Nevada resident. Unload it and put it in your luggage as if you were declaring it in checked baggage to fly out of Nevada.

    Do I think you'd beat the wrap if you were charged with illegal CCW in your domicile or place of business, yes because of private property rights. This is another ambiguity that needs to be corrected in our CCW statute.

    My renewal took 90 days because of an issue with LVMPD losing fingerprints for everyone who was fingerprinted in October 2008. It would have taken 60 days otherwise. I've heard that some applications have been processed within 30 days. However keep in mind that I've been in Nevada since Sept 1992 and one of the support technicians commented that my background check was easy to do because of my length of residency in Nevada.
