    Print rules in Nevada???

    I got a question to you experienced CCW holders.. If I have a CCW and carry concealed but my shirt reveals it from time to time due to movement or my big belly am I still legal? Texas has a No-Printing law. Meaning if ur gun can be seen under or thru your clothing it's illegal.

    Nevada being an OC state makes the visibility not an issue. being a CCW holder in now way affects OC. fully or partially concealed does not matter as long as you posses a CCW.

    In other words there is no NRS code or penalty if it is visible

    remove handgun registration in Clark County,NV

    2nd amendment in modern English: The people have the right to own and carry firearms, and it may not be violated because a well-equipped Militia is necessary for a State to remain secure and free.

    Here in Nevada, with a valid permit, no such concerns are necessary.

    Agree with ^^^^^. Usually, you'll only have problems with "printing" in states where CCW is the only legal way to carry, like Texas and Florida (OC is not legal).

    Because OC is legal in Nevada, printing is a non-issue.

    note exactly related but can someone tell me where the term "printing" comes from in relation to firearms?

    Printing, in regards to firearms, is the shape of a firearm pushing out against the material, showing the shape of the firearm.

    Imprinting is what happens when you push a harder object into a a softer object and it leaves a mark or impression.

    "Imprinting" present participle of imĚprint (Verb)

    Verb:

    1.Impress or stamp (a mark or outline) on a surface or body: "tire marks were imprinted in the snow".
    2.Make an impression or mark on (something): "clothes imprinted with logos".

    Close, but different.

    Obviously different - I was just saying I figured that is where the word came from because of the similarity...

    You know... like a hard gun pushing into a soft shirt and making an impression of the gun underneath?

    Just to shore up what has already been said a few weeks back I got the attention of a Nye County LEO after she got me on radar doing 76 in a 45. (Yes, I was in a hurry). On my way to church, one of very few times I CC. She asked for my paperwork that was in the center console of my truck. I ended up having to reach to the back of the console.

    After handing her the paper work, she asked if I was carrying. I said yes I am. I was surprised and asked her what made her ask. My truck an older 4X4 sets tall, she had a clear eye level view of my left side, and as I reached, it allowed my firearm to bulge my shirt.

    She asked if I have a permit, I said sure do, gave it to her, she checked it out and gave it back. Went back to her cruiser came back with a ticket marked with 1-10 mph over. A very nice break when she could have wrote me for 30+ over. Therefore, a case printing is not an issue if CCing with a permit.

    I print all the time, as well as oc, never had a problem with LE, just regular citizens that don't know its legal.
