    Talking 30 yr Texas native resident just moved to Vegas

    Im 35 (36 this coming April) from Texas (30 yr resident) that just moved to Las Vegas last week. Brought my firearms along with me with the drive from central Texas. I am a staunch supporter of the 2nd Amendment and the freedom(s) is provides. Im an absolute Mil-Surp nut. I love any firearms predating the Korean War, particularly the old bolt guns. I currently own a 1942 Mosin Nagant, Smith & Wesson Sigma SD9VE, Heritage Rough Rider 22LR revolver, and a Remington 514. If I had a choice between a Mil-Surp rifle, like a Japanese Arisaka Type 99 and a fully decked out AR, I would choose the Arisaka.

    Welcome to NV AND OCDO.

    How do you like not needing permission to carry?

    Its great and a complete load of my back. In Texas, one can OC rifles and such, but OCing my Mosin does get annoying especially if I have the cruciform bayonet on. LOL As Uncle Ted puts it simply, the 2nd amendment is my carry permit. PERIOD

    I admit that I was a bit taken aback when I first learned that TX was NOT OC, and CC by permit only. Seemed backwards of the popular vision of TX as 'wild west.'


    But, welcome!

    Have you reviewed the legislative topics in the stickies and non-sticky threads yet? Constitutional Carry is being presented this session again, AND another bill seeks to change CC from 'any semi and/or any revolver' to 'any pistol.'

    Conversely, how do you like having to register handguns?

    Welcome to the nuthouse we call Nevada. Las Vegas is just one of the special rubber rooms we have here, so make yourself at home. As previously stated, we are a very active bunch here in NV, possibly the most active when you count population. The only problem I can see is that you chose to move down south and we need you up here in Nothern NV, lol. Kind of short handed up here in no man's land.
    Crazy cant be stopped with gun registration or control. These guys will continue until Americans admit we have a real mental health and crime issue in this country. Go after the gangs full force and keep the crazies off the streets, and leave me and my gun alone.

    Welcome! I have a Mosin as well, love it! They are definitely made to take a beating and they just keep on firing.

    @wrightme Constitutional Carry is being presented? Does anyone think it stands a chance? All the $$ the state gets from the ccw permits and the expensive courses that go along with it...here's hoping it has a chance, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Yes, it is being presented. It was also presented last year.

    As in other states, putting Constitutional Carry into place does NOT negate the permits.

    Ill go anywhere where theres a good job market. When you mean northern NV, you talking about Elko or Reno? I used to be a firearms instructor in Oregon till the ex went nutsy fagan on me, got divorced and moved back home to texas. then the sandyhook debacle happened and my new shooters as id put it basically dried up (ppl hoarding ammo not wanting to shoot as much anymore.

    Unless you are a miner don't come where I am then (Winnemucca). I was just referring to the number of people that OC around here. May even by myself in this area, but not sure.
