    Remember, "Law Enforcement Officer" is a title, not a job description.

    And since cops are allowed to lie, and get to make up "reasonable cause" at any point after the encounter, this is why we recommend people, especially targeted people like OCers, carry and use recording equipment.

    I believe the LEO was out of line and over reacted by pulling his gun as you said keeping your hands on the wheel. I can understand him backing up and may be hand on the gun in the holster then if you made a unannoused movement with our hands off the wheel that might be time for the LEO to start pointing.
    Thanks for looking up detaining NRS. I am going to make a printed copy and carry it next to the law pamphlet in my wallet.
    Thanks for sharing the unpleasant encounter.


    Yeah my friend isn't so smart and should have kept up on his payments in the first place. When one officer told the one talking to me that I was armed I was asked if I had a CCW and then he turned to the other officer and asked him if he could see it. All I was thinking was he just told you I was armed therefore he can see it. Then when asked why I carry I replied "because I can". He looked at me with a "you're a dick and fair enough look". Then he asked if I was an ex-felon. I was like "you just ran my license, am I an ex-felon". He said have a good night.

    Did he seriously ask if you were an ex-felon? Because if you were, would that not imply right restoration? It is felons who are barred, not ex-felons.

    Yes, his exact words were, "are you an ex-felon or anything like that"

    No she wasn't able to provide anything stating that LE had the rights she claimed. so i told her the statutes that said they didn't have those right, and she...well, simply had no argument left to put it nicely.

    going to have breakfast tomorrow, OCing for the first time. Any suggestions. That may seem like a stupid question, but despite all that i have learned over the last few days, i'm still a little nervous

    Question: If you are recording w/Audio/Video do you have to let the person know? In other states the answer is Yes, not sure about Nv.

    Good.

    Now, for the niggle. LE don't have rights. Citizens have Rights.

    Nervous is normal. If you can get someone who is more comfortable with OC to go with, that may help a lot.

    Print out the OC pamphlet from the sticky, study it, and have it with you.

    lol, already on it! Thanks. That really would make me more comfortable to start out...to have someone with. I may wait until the PTs meet up that was in another response. It's great to have this input from you guys!

    No need to be sneaky. If they see the recorder, they will know. Public officials have no expectation of privacy.

    There's other threads on here about that.

    But the conversation was related.

    i found the post after i asked about it...thanks though! However i spoke too soon. Could find no babysitter this close. I did go out with wife and son this morning and OC. We went to Chili's on North Decatur. Then went across the street to walk around Wal-Mart. We were in Chili's for about an hour, no one said a word. In Wal-Mart for about 1.5 hrs. I was proud to "educate" 3 people asking questions about my OCing! One guy asked if i "ever catch any [crap] for open carrying?" This was at the gun/ammo counter so i wasn't surprised that he knew it was legal. He told me he had his CCW on the way, but had never OCed. I told him it was my first day and it was going okay at that point. I told him about OC.org and how much i learned here, encouraged him to join.

    There were two other guys walking behind me later and heard them start chattering about me: Is that a taser? No i think that's a gun. Heard one guys say "well as long as he has a CCW..." At that point i turned around and began the edumacation! We chatted for a minute about what the requirements were. At the end they thanked me for the info and we all went about our business. I won't lie, felt GREAT!

    So all went well today. I'm sorry i won't be able to make it to PT's tonight. Maybe on the next go around.

    Saturday, I OC,d at PT's at the meetup. There were about 17 of us there. It was good to meet everyone. After my wife and I left PT's we went to Seafood City to do some shopping. No problems there. I walked by an armed security guard there, but he didn't even notice I was carrying. Then wifey and I went to Smith's on N. Durango/Elkhorn. No problems there either.

    Sunday, I OC'd at Chow King at the Seafood City with my wife and son. Met my sister-in-law and her husband there. No problems. Later, OC'd at Walmart on Tropical in Centennial Hills for about 1 hour. No problems there.

    I'm more comfortable OCing now. The fact that I have not had any bad encounters or otherwise had problems OCing has helped me to become more comfortable about it. But, I know the problems and encounters with business owners, customers, and cops are out there. It is, sadly, just a matter of time before something unpleasant happens. But so far, either people have noticed my firearm and have not reacted, or they have been oblivious to the fact that I am wearing a firearm on my hip. Either way, so far OCing has been a good experience for me.

    The way it has been going for me so far is how it should go for all of us who OC, all the time. I hope it keeps going this way.

    Military Police with wrong info

    this is a little off thread, but wanted to tell you guys. First off, i think it's really crazy that LEO, who are supposed to UPHOLD THE LAW, don't even know what the laws are concerning OCing (i realize some do). With that said, i expected my military police to be a little more informed. i'm military and was in my local shopette. Asked a passing military police about carrying guns on base; my intent WAS to find out what regulations i must adhere to to carry my personal firearms on base. he responded, "i don't know about on base, but in Nevada as long as you have a CCW you can carry your guns in the vehicle." I gave him a puzzled look and told him "i don't think you're correct, you only need a CCW if you carry it concealed, on your person, in the vehicle. As long as it's not concealed, you don't need a CCW to have a firearm in the vehicle." He mumbled some stuff about not knowing for sure, but i pressed on with finding out the regs for base. He seemed hesitant to answer anything for sure so he took my email address and told me he'd find the regs governing on-base carry and would let me know.

    So i was just shocked at how clueless this guy was. I wasn't mad and didn't respond in an arrogant manner or anything...i was just shocked. I mean this guy signed up to do this for a living. I know he doesn't police anyone off base, but he should still know! However i was, for the most part, ignorant until recently as well. But i haven't sworn to uphold the laws for the citizens of this state either. I guess i just expect them to know more...military police or civilian. Don't these guys have to get at least an Associates degree in criminal justice. Can anyone explain to me what training cops have to go through and why they don't know more about these OC laws?

    If they know, then they can't be ignorant and stop you to try to get you on other things

    A letter needs to be written from OC.Org ( or whatever group ) to these municipalities so they can train their officers etc.

    My experience (35 years on military bases) has shown me that Military police train on many of the same basic things that their civilian counterparts train on, with an emphasis on military law, the Uniform Code of Military Justice and security. Unlike their civilian counterparts they seldom see somebody open carrying on a military installation, because, for the most part, it’s forbidden. Military members and visitors usually have to check their weapons with security, before gaining access to the base, this usually includes base housing. At my current base NAS Fallon, if you live local, they won't allow you to check a gun. They'll tell you to take it home. This is due to manning. They have only one armorer and they changed the policy because they can't spare him to check guns.

    So don’t be surprised to see an MP who doesn’t know the local gun laws. They are more concerned with vehicle inspections and base security than with whether you can open carry.

    Yesterday I went to the Wal-Mart on Nellis and Craig. No issues here, one guy almost ran his cart into a clothes rack in the center of the aisle, I just gave him a smile. One of the gentlemen in the electronics department talked to me about carrying. Bought a box of ammo, the manager was very helpful, not concerned looking in the slightest.

    After that I went to Best Buy on N. Decatur, wanted to buy a voice recorder but Wal-Mart was out. I had one or two people stare and whisper but other than that the employees didn't react at all, just helped me with m questions. Found a nice voice recorder for cheap, checked out.

    Then I went to Target Off the 215 and Decatur(I've been trying to find one of those things you plug into the wall to get rid of roaches). As I was walking up to the entrance there was a very loud family who looked over at me and just abruptly got very quiet. A little bit uncomfortable, but the service desk lady was very nice and I still couldn't find what I was looking for...

    Last, I went to Yoko Sushi on Rainbow. The people who worked there were very polite, glanced at my hip and then my face and must have decided I wasn't there to cause trouble. Dinner there was nice, good sushi.

    Smith's (Vegas and Jones)

    Last night I had a very positive experience at Smith's. I bought my groceries and the customer service manager stepped in to bag my groceries at the register. The pretty cashier made small talk, as if I wasn't even carrying a weapon. Then I got into a good 2-3 minute conversation with the manager about 1911s cause he owned a PT 1911 (I own a Rock Island). On the way out, the cashier running the self-check machines smiled and said, "I wouldn't mess with you. Good on you for protecting yourself in this area"
