Concealed Weapons Permits of 15 States to Be Accepted in Nevada

The states agreed to at the May 5 meeting are: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Rhode Island, Tennessee and West Virginia, according to a news release submitted by Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong.

    So what’s the commonality among those states? At a glance, required training varies widely, so that’s not it. Are they all resident-only states (as far as issuing permits)? If so, what difference does it make whether I pass a background check run by the DOJ in WI or the BCI in UT?

      NV’s reciprocity policy is that the other state must have permitting requirements similar to or stricter than NV’s requirements, as arbitrarily defined by the Nevada Sheriffs’ and Chiefs’ Association.  UT and FL used to be on the list, but were bumped off a couple years ago (FL, because their permits are valid for 7 years compared to NV’s 5 years. UT, because they do not require live fire in their training).

      Off the top of my head, I know that 2 of the states currently on the list (RI and AZ) do issue to non-residents.  But you must take your training in AZ to get their permit. And as far as I am aware, for RI you must qualify in front of one of only a handful of certified instructors.

      BTW, NV also issues to non-residents.  I’m not sure how much it costs, but I figure the only reason I would go to NV is during vacation, in which case I would include a visit to Front Site in my itinerary.

        How come NY is not on the list?  They’re one of the stricter states to get a ccw permit.

          Since the 7 year term was the reason given for not recognizing the FL permit, it would be my guess that it is because a NY permit is issued for life and never needs to be renewed.

        This is not true. In AZ in order to get a NR CCW you have to provide proof of live fire training(NRA,ARMED SECURITY,ECT ECT) and submit that to the AZ DPS. There is a list of acceptable training at AZ.Gov
        You do NOT have to go to AZ to demonstrate your proficiency. 
        Also note that if you are an ARIZONA RESIDENT you do not need a permits as they are now Constitutional Carry. As a NON RESIDENT you MUST have a NON RESIDENT PERMIT. By the way the AZ NR permit is recognized in 35 States. So for now,this is the best permit to have out of the lot of them. Unfortunately,it doesnt as most others dont, allow CCW on the East Coast. Besides who whats to hang around a bunch of funny talkin bean eaters anyway(LOL)

          According to Handgunlaw(dot)US, the 8 hour training session must take place in AZ.  Also, the AZDPS site shows 576 out of 577 acceptable training organizations being located in AZ. A quick search of the one with a TX address shows some corporate connections to AZ.

    It really irrtates me that this State does not accept the Florida non resident permit. I am an Illinois resident who does not have the opportunity to obtain a resident permit. I took my training in Mo. If I was a resident of MO. I would be accepted in Nevada. Why would I be less qualified with the Florida permit ? Same with Colorado.

      Again, NV did recognize a FL permit until recently. They decided that since the FL permit is good for 7 years, that was not as stringent as the 5 year term for the NV permit. So they stopped recognizing it. 

      And since FL generally recognizes the permit of any state that will recognize theirs, when NV stopped accepting the FL permit, FL stopped accepting the NV permit.

      get the AZ  nr permit    60 bucks good to go

    • Blue Fantom

      you fell into the Utah/Florida trap. Cost about 160.00
      The AZ NR permit is 60.00 and offers as many states(except Minn and Mich,WA,OR,NV and CO) 
      Read the permit info section here and learn what coverage and prices are the best. 
      You(as I ) should be up Governor Quinns ass to get concealed in illinois. We are now the ONLY STATE IN THE UNION that doesnt allow some sort of carry. With RE to colorado, write the legislators and get them to recognize CCW permits that provide for training and BG checks.

      Also, CO does not accept ANY non-resident permit. If you were a FL resident, CO would accept your FL permit.

    I thought they already recognized Michigan?
