    Nevada is a defacto open carry state and you may open carry if you choose.

    Nevada has statewide preemption (except for Clark County registration).

    If you open carry in the high traffic tourist areas of Las Vegas you may have a visit from Metro or, Casino personel may/will ask you to leave the property if you open carry in any casino. If anyone in authority in any private establishment asks you to leave you must leave under Nevada's trespass law.

    There is no restriction on having a firearm in your car, open or concealed as long as it is not concealed on your person (unless you have a permit).

    While concealed carry enjoys state preemption in Nevada, open carry does not. Specifically, North Las Vegas and Boulder City (both in Clark County) have local ordinances that make open carry illegal. Also, as someone already stated, open carry in the tourist areas of Las Vegas is not practical.

    This a stupid question, but I don't live in Nevada. When I took the nonresident CCW training, the instructor brought up the fact that North Las Vegas was not very gun friendly. What parts of Las Vegas are considered to be North Las Vegas? I want to know what I can and cannot do in Las Vegas, whether it be concealed or open carry. I apologize to those who are offended by this question, but I think it's important for nonresidents to know.

    If it looks like Compton and the street signs are blue, you are in North Las Vegas. Turn the hell around and go the way you came, if you see either of those indications.

    This should be a bit more specific than Bravo_Sierra, even though he is right.

    Thanks! I just don't get out there very often. Most of the time, we fly. The next time, I want to drive and take my time. I am looking at a good 8 or 9 hours.

    This, so far, is very simple. Las Vegas is a city within Clark County - the street signs have a Green colored background.

    North Las Vegas is a city within Clark County - the street signs in North Las Vegas have a Blue colored background.

    NO parts of Las Vegas are considered to be part of North Las Vegas.

    Also most of the casinos are Not in Las Vegas at all but are in unincorporated Clark County. Las Vegas has the name, Clark County has the big casinos. Most people who visit the Strip think they are actually in Las Vegas - they are not (but why spoil their fun with the facts?)

    I OC'd at Luxor on my way OUT because if I was hassled, I was leaving anyway.

    I have asked some hotel security guys and they say you can't even CC there and insist that hotel guests check their guns with security until they leave.

    Other than that, can't say, but I would assume the answer is NO.

    Edited to add:

    Boyd properties (Sams Town, Main Street Station, Orleans, Gold Coast, etc) go a step further and have signs posted at most entrances, including the parking garages, with some nonsense about them doing their part to stop terrorism, so guns aren't allowed...

    That is what I expected to hear. I will be in Henderson anyways. Hopefully it will be a little better there and I won't have issues OCing for my short visit.

    I refuse to stay at a casino hotel &, and since I'm there for business, I had my company put me up in a business suite (as opposed to a resort). Hopefully theywon't hassle me if I'm seen OCing to and fro.

    I flew into Vegas without a hitch with my pistol checked, locked, and stowed in my luggage. I stayed at Hampton Inn South about 25 mins from the strip with no OC issues. I went into two family-friendly restaurants without a single question. I traveled daily to and or thru the tourist areas with no issues in my vehicle. I did not attempt OCing in the hotel casinos, plus I was there on business and do not gamble, so it wasn't a problem for me. I went to an indoor range there and shot several hundred rounds one day with no problems either.

    So, for me it was an OK overall experience, however it would have been nice for my VA CHP to have reciprocity there.

    And registration in Clark County is only necessary if a one is a resident or is there for more than 60 days.

    Oh yeah, like the hotels in Mumbai. No guns allowed = No terrorism. Yep. Works every time it's tried.

    The NV AG's faq web-site indicates that local statutes limiting open carry may be enforced.

As used in this subsection, “firearm” means any weapon from which a projectile is discharged by means of an explosive, spring, gas, air or other force.

    2. A board of county commissioners may proscribe by ordinance or regulation the unsafe discharge of firearms.

    3. If a board of county commissioners in a county whose population is 400,000 or more has required by ordinance or regulation adopted before June 13, 1989, the registration of a firearm capable of being concealed, the board of county commissioners shall amend such an ordinance or regulation to require:

    (a) A period of at least 60 days of residency in the county before registration of such a firearm is required.

    (b) A period of at least 72 hours for the registration of a pistol by a resident of the county upon transfer of title to the pistol to the resident by purchase, gift or any other transfer.

    4. Except as otherwise provided in subsection 1, as used in this section:

    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.
