    I may be heading out to Vegas with some friends for a weekend later this year. I did plan on OCing at some extent and I was curious if anyone would know if you could check your firearms for a receipt with casino security or any such thing? I've heard that many casinos don't allow firearms, and it would be a PITA to have to run back to the hotel and equip/unequip when venturing around.

    Thanks!

    Best bet is to call your hotel and ask them. I know of a few properties that do check them in for you.

    Do you have a conceal permit? Per NRS 202.3689, Nevada honors the following states permits for non-residents:

    Alaska
    Arkansas
    Florida (added January 3, 2008)
    Kansas
    Louisiana
    Michigan (added May 9, 2008)
    Missouri
    Nebraska
    Tennessee
    Utah

    If you can conceal, just throw your shirt over it on the way in/out.

    I don't have any out-of-state CC permits. Getting one from Utah may be a good idea since NV reciprocates. I don't have a conceal holster as I'm a CA resident and getting a CC permit is like seeing a unicorn...

    You can apply for the Utah permit and it's good in lots of states, including here in NV. And if you don't plan to conceal very often but rather just OC, just throw it in your pocket or into a bag to conceal it when in the casinos. A conceal holster is useful for carrying long periods of time (and yes, it is safer). Your preference. There are lots of places online to order a conceal holster very cheap.

    Careful with the UT permit. I THINK that recognition is for UT resident permittees, and may not be for UT NON-resident permittees. I will check more later, unless someone else can dig it up.

    The UT permit is fine whether you live in UT or not. The only ones for whom the UT permit is not accepted is NV residents (NV residents must hold an NV permit). Per NRS 202.3688:

    NRS 202.3688 Circumstances in which holder of permit issued by another state may carry concealed firearm in this State; holder of permit issued by another state subject to same restrictions and requirements as holder of permit issued in this State.

    1. Except as otherwise provided in subsection 2, a person who possesses a permit to carry a concealed firearm that was issued by a state included in the list prepared pursuant to NRS 202.3689 may carry a concealed firearm in this State in accordance with the requirements set forth in NRS 202.3653 to 202.369, inclusive.

    2. A person who possesses a permit to carry a concealed firearm that was issued by a state included in the list prepared pursuant to NRS 202.3689 may not carry a concealed firearm in this State if the person:

    (a) Becomes a resident of this State; and

    (b) Has not been issued a permit from the sheriff of the county in which he resides within 60 days after becoming a resident of this State.

    3. A person who carries a concealed firearm pursuant to this section is subject to the same legal restrictions and requirements imposed upon a person who has been issued a permit by a sheriff in this State.
