Hello all. I have a question about Nevada and open carry gun laws. I am moving from AZ to northern CA and I will be driving the entire time through NV. I can carry here in AZ CC or OC, but what are the rules about driving with a gun in NV while I am in the moving truck? Can I keep it in the glove box or under the seat like I do here or does it have to be on my person or what? Any info would be great.
As of August 2010 Nevada does not recognize Arizona’s conceal permit. However, you can open carry a loaded firearm on your person in your vehicle or out of your vehicle. Unless you correctly secure it as soon as you cross state line to Komeyfornia you will instantly turn from a law biding civilian into a extremely dangerous gun hauling criminal. Enjoy your short lived gun freedom.

There are no laws regarding vehicle carry of a handgun, so long as it is not concealed on your person. For that you would need a permit recognized by NV.

I wouldn't keep it under the seat, but that's just me. You may keep it in the glove box, on the seat next to you, on the dash for every passing car to see (probably not a good idea either), in a holster mounted to your car, or on your person as long as it is not concealed by clothing or other covering. If it is on your person and is hidden from view by the seat or seatbelt, that is NOT concealed.
