RangerVet, welcome to OCDO! I am a displaced Virginia resident now in Reno and while I do have a VA CHP, I never used it and prefer to OC anyway. Good thing too, because I'm in the same boat with no reciprocity. The only difference is the fingerprints (that the FED alreadyhas since I'm retired Navy (and DNA, and blood, urineand other assorted bodily fluids).
Nevada is a great place to OC, though I'd like to see State Parks opened up. We have quite a few threads on this very topic, though not necessarily about Reno. Locked and loaded OC is no problem. No "two actions away from firing" or anything like that.
I've OC'ed in RENO quite a bit and never had any problems. I've been in a few downtown casinos, walked around downtown without any mention whatsoever. A casino can ask you to leave as it's private property, but AFAIK, that hasn't happened here in Reno.
In your car, OC on your hip is fine, concealed in your car is also legal (glovebox, under seat, etc) just NOT on your person.
In a nutshell:
No OC in a State Park (unloaded and cased in vehicle OK).
No OC at a roadside park or rest area (unloaded and cased in vehicle OK).
No carry at all on school property.
No carry at all in public buildings w/ posted signs and metal detectors (ie courthouses)
No carry at all in public buildings of airports.
No carry at all in Child Care Facilities (including approved private homes).
No carry where posted (trespass laws apply).
Lots of info in the Nevada forum: http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum36/
