    Exclamation Getting Blue Card for pistol transferred in my name

    My father is going to give or sell to me 2 of his pistols. I'm 19, and neither of us have a record. We live in Las Vegas, Nevada, Clark County. 1 is a 9mm semi auto that he bought New about 18 years ago and has the blue card. The Second is a .22 single six that he bought new about 5ish years ago, and he lost the blue card.

    How would we go about getting these pistols transferred into my name? Would I have my own blue cards?





    If you have any questions, feel free to ask, and I will answer them.


    Thanks for your help.

    Just take them down to a metro sub station. Make sure they are unloaded and you don't take them pass the second set of doors.

    Nevermind, found all the info i need here: http://www.lvmpd.com/permits/firearms_registration.html
    No fee. Need ID. They run your background and give you a card. Take your unloaded firearm to any police station in the county and they will take the sn# off it and write up a description. There is no requirement to keep or carry the "blue card". You can through it away if you want after you get it. It is just a receipt that you registered it.

    No longer true with instant check. Pick out your gun, pay for it and the background check fee, they run you through the system and assuming you check out ok, walk out with your gun. There is no wait.

    Then that must be one of those Grandfathered things that Las Vegas and or N. Las Vegas hang onto against state pre-emption. You are right about Henderson as I have bought 2 handguns in the past year and walked out that day. I sure don't recall it being mentioned in the NRS I've read. Just another reason to do business here in freedom loving Henderson.

    Spurlocks is one of the stores on my "like" list and that is a small list. The guys in there are really nice. I bought my XDM40 there and that's where I get some of my reloading stuff.

    Thanks

    sorry thats a little confusing, I actually work in NYE county, but the company headquarters are in Las Vegas.

    Wow, they are still telling people that they have to carry the "Blue Card" and produce it upon orders of an Officer? They also say you can't have your firearm in a bag/case/container. What a weath of disinformation.

    The only place you may have problems is NLV. The rest of the state is good to go. If you get caught up in NLV the NRA is looking for a good test case.

    And the handgun could be in a container in your car as well. Why do they hand this crap out? How long ago did you get that one Dave?

    I'm not a resident of Nevada. Everything I've read applies to residents, I guess who qualifies as a resident is the issue?

    The only restriction is the length of time you are in the county otherwise you are good to go no "Blue Card" needed.

    Thanks TBG!

    The only other question is, is it 60 days continuous, or total? the room I rent is usually a short pit stop (I spend Mon-Fri at work in Nye) on my way to and from New Mexico, but I always have my pistol with me.

    I know it's a weird deal, I just want to make sure I'm not breaking the law in Clark County. I guess I could just go in and apply for a card and see what they say.

    Thanks again.
