    First, welcome.

    Second, carry away, in Carson, or Sparks, Reno...

    Thirdly, if you can carry, it can be loaded. Exception to that is, in your vehicle, a rifle or shotgun can not have a round in the chamber.

    Lastly, you can open carry in your vehicle. The weapon can be in a box, glove compartment, on the seat, on the dash, under the seat, between the seats, basically anywhere in the vehicle, in plain sight or not in plain sight, including in the holster, on your belt, as long as it is NOT concealed on your person.

    Look in the stickies for the pamphlet, which defines much of what you will want to know.

    Welcome!

    Welcome to open carry dot org. Open carry away. Just make sure you stay up on the laws, which are fairly easy here in NV. It would appear the younger you are the more likely of a law enforcement encounter. Check out Field Maximus pamphlet it is very handy. It is a sticky top of the NV postings. In addition, if I am correct Field Maximus started out OCing I believe at the age of 18 or 19 and had a few law enforcement encounters and I guess it is not fun. I have had a few posting conversations with Field Maximus saying he feels law enforcement encounters is likely based on his experience and I said a law enforcement encounter has never happened to me and so I feel it is very unlikely.
    After being enlightened by field Maximus it would appear you being a just barley legal OCer and living in the wide end of the state be prepared for the likely hood of an law enforcement encounter. Open carry with a good retention holster be confident, good appearance also seems to help. If you can, memorize the few NRSs that makes you legal and the NRS on being detained or at least have a copy. Many good pointers can be gained by researching encounters on OC.org.
    Now the disclaimer. This is only an opinion.
