    Any info on what the turn around time on a Nevada CWP is?
    It is perfectly legal to cc in a casino in NV as long as you have a permit recognized by NV. The only places prohibited in NV are airports, gov't buildings, schools and daycares. I carry in the casinos all the time. Not just walking to the room but eating at their restraunts, playing blackjack, whatever. All they can do is ask you to leave IF they even notice you are carrying as long as you are legal.

    Why not just strap it on your belt or leg or arm or ankle and wear it from the car to the room. It's legal to open carry in a casino in Nevada, you don't need a permit to open carry, and yes, all they can do is ask you to leave.

    Nevada law allows a firearm to be carried in one's car because a car is considered an extension of one's home. That firearm can be in plain sight or concealed in the glove box or under the seat, etc. However, it cannot be concealed on your person while you are in the car unless you have a CC permit. The best way to carry in a car, then, is up to you as long as it is not concealed on, under, or touching your body. (That's the way a Sheriff's Deputy explained it to me. I'm not an LEO so don't quote me. Research this yourself and don't shoot the messenger! )

    Not shooting the messenger, however I am an instructor on the LVMPD approved Nevada CFP instructor list.

    The real reason you can have a firearm concealed in your vehicle is because of Nevada Attorney General Opinion 93-14 (search the PDF for 93-14 to get to the relevant section of the 1993 AG opinions), it's not because Nevada considers your vehicle to be an extension of your home whether by an article in a given State's Constitution or case law such as LA or NM or vehicle CCW is permitted by code, law or statute such as FL, MO, TX or UT.

    Keep in mind that any DA or judge can challenge an AG opinion. However because all Attorney General opinions are public record, the legal defense for having a firearm concealed in your vehicle has for the most part already been done for you. This is why all Nevada DA's will cut you lose or LEO supervisors will kick free an arrest for vehicle CCW. One can also use an AG opinion as a legal defense which is a very strong legal precedence. The acting Chief Law Enforcement Officer and legal counsel for the State of Nevada said officially on June 21, 1993 vehicle CCW was legal so until the NRS changes which specifically forbids vehicle CCW or NV AG Opinion 93-14 is successfully challenged, you can do it. I don't forsee NV AG Opinion 93-14 being challenged in court or NRS 202.350 being amended to prohibit vehicle CCW.

    If it's concealed in your vehicle (i.e. glove box, under a seat, in between seats, door pocket, center console, passenger seat under something, locked case or vault attached to the vehicle, etc.) you should be fine under Nevada AG opinion 93-14.

    If I weren't able to carry it loaded, I would just unload it and put it in my luggage until I got into my room. Seems pretty simple to me, if that weren't legal then what would be the point of firearms being legal there at all? They have to be transported in some fashion or another....

    If you put the firearm inside your luggage then it's considered concealed and you need a permit to do that in Nevada. Carry it open for all the world to see and it's legal in Nevada.

    Thanks, net, I was merely quoting a local detective, and it was easy for me to say it that way. I guess easier isn't always better, huh? Oh well.

    He said unloaded though, so he would be 'legal' according to the current laws if he put an unloaded gun in his bags.

    Open carry downtown on the strip is a BAD idea just FYI. I personally would never do it unless I were in some type of uniform; while its legal and all, OC downtown is just asking for Metro to be all over you like white on rice. Just MHO.
