    New guy holster question

    I am traveling to Vegas next week. I would rather avoid hassles with open carry if possible.

    Is a gun case (A rug with a belt clip) or a complete coverage holster like a safepacker legal for open carry in NV? Or does the firearm need to be visible in the holster? I looked at the statutes and am not clear.

    Thanks in advance.

    In Nevada, concealed is defined as "Not Discernible by ordinary observation." There is not Legal opinion or case law to support the carry of a firearm in this type of holster if you do so, you are running the risk of being the test case.

    The gun must be discernible by ordinary observation.
    "Concealed weapon” means a weapon described in this section that is carried upon a person in such a manner as not to be discernible by ordinary observation.
    (Safepacker "holster")

    I think it would be challenging to argue that ordinary observation would indicate this contained a gun. Same thing for a gun rug or a gun case.

    Thanks, I wasn't sure. The law is worded different in AZ and such things work without undo attention. I knew Nevada would be different.

    Thanks again.

    In Arizona, you can carry concealed w/o the need for a permit.

    open carry here is different then AZ! in the old days in AZ afaik you could have only a bit of the handle showing and be legal, way different here either totally open or concealed/permit required.
    Safepacker would need a ccw to be legal.
