    Trip To Las Vegas

    I am planning a road trip to Las Vegas at the end of the month and want to take my handgun along for the ride. What is the law when i pass into Nevada boundaries? I do not plan to oc or have the gun on my person at all, just want protection for the rode. Anyone know about this?

    If you have an Arizona concealed carry license you are good to go. I don't OC so I am not sure about that. Nevada acccepts Arizona now as of july 2011. Just remember the places off limits. Nevada has some quirks, but only of you move there. They require you to actually qualify with the hand gun you will carry in order to get a CCW - GOOD. Las Vegas requires you to register your handgun within 60 days - VERY, VERY BAD! Good luck!

    You might want to check over at the Nevada OC forum. They can probably help you better.

    I have a Nevada CCW permit and travel there when I visit Front Sight. Nevada's state preeemption law is not strong. There are cities and towns like Boulder City (which you have to travel through) that ban the carrying of firearms.

    If I recall correctly, carrying in places that serve alcohol and casinos is a "trespassing" issue, but I don't recommend getting caught - a guy got killed by the police for carrying in Costco last year.

    I'd recommend checking Nevada law. The Nevada Department of Public Safety has links to their CCW statutes.

(12:45 PM) Then I realized I put KA instead of KS for Kansas (1:40 PM) Then I changed "blood alcohol level above .10" to "blood alcohol concentration of 0.10 or higher" to be more technically correct.
