You mentioned HR 218.I plan on attending a FrontSight handgun course in April 2008. I will be flying in from New York. I should be flying into Vegas. Once Im out of the airport I would like the opportunity to open carry. Being from New York, I was amazed at open carry opportunities most of the states enjoy. So I just want to make sure its kosher.
Does Las Vegas allow open carry (Philly in Pa, does not for example)? YES
Is open carry acceptable when checking into a hotel? NO, don't even let them know you have a gun.
How many people can I expect to see open carry on my drive from Vegas to Frontsight.0-10
I imagine Casino open carry is a no no. In LV you would be correct, Pahrump is a little more rural and it might be excepted their.
Is law enforcement generally aware of open carry rights. They know it is legal.
I see parks and rest stops are also off limits. Is the temp in Nevada hot in April where I would prefer to open carry rather than conceal carry (HR 218). Personal choice, April weather is usually nice.
If I open carry will people stare and call local law enforcement. I guess I'm just hoping Im not the only guy who will be in open carry mode and everyone else will be misinformed and lacking in knowlege about open carry. There is always that chance, but highly unlikely.
Signed - Nervous about open carry
