    Hello, I will be taking a trip to Nevada this weekend for the first time with a holstered weapon. Being from California I am unfamiliar to the correct way to have it holstered or in my car.

    Edit: the only questions I now haveare..

    Can I have the chamber loaded while OC'ing?

    I am only heading up Sunday morning until Monday morning, does this classify me as journeyman or do I still have to check in my weapon to the local sheriff?

    Thank you ahead of time to anyone who knows the answers 100% certain.

    Yes, there are no restrictions in Nevada (except that you may not have a chambered round in a long gun, a hunting regulation).

    The only requiement to register handguns, in Nevada, is for Clark County residents (in residence for 60 days).

    Ive read a lot through these forums and I have seen mention of "checking in" your firearm and receiving a blue card? Though I also heard something about if your "passing through" then you dont have to because your a journeyman or something.

    "Blue card" = registration in Clark County.

    It is only required of Clark County residents and visitors staying for 60 days or more.

    This is free America on this side of the border, whatever you learned in CA about gun laws, forget it once you come over here, we have very minimal, pro-gun laws.

    The proper way to transport it in your car in the entire state of Nevada is anywhere but concealed on your person. lock and load (yes, you can carry loaded in your car here) and put it in your glove box or center console. If you want to carry it on your person and you don't have a concealed carry permit you may carry it loaded in a belt holster, just as long as it's not covered by your clothing.

    I'm a refugee from California and very, very happy to for the last nine years to call myself a Nevada resident -- and delighted to carry my weapon whenever it suits my fancy.
