    I want a photo in front of the sign too!

    G'day guys,

    Long time lurker first time poster.

    I'm heading over for SHOT and some competitions next month from Australia and would love to catch up with some of you guys for a photo OC'ing in from of the LV sign.

    I have contacted DPS and they have advised me I am legal to carry in the state of Nevada!

    I can't wait, so what say you all? Anyone want to catch up for a meal or a shoot and to grab a pic?

    Thanks!

    Presume DPS is referring to OC.

    Looks like a good photo op et al looking for a place to happen.

    Glad to hear DPS advised an out of state resident of their right to OC!

    Make sure the "Welcome to Nevada" sign is IN Nevada, and not in COMMIEfornia. Some of the state signs are actually in the neighboring states, because the terrain at the state line does not facilitate erection of the sign at that point.

    It's the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign.

    Geography, how does it work?


    I was going to add text to a picture of the Insane Clown Posse. But I figured only a very few would get it. So instead, I'm going to bed.

    On the other hand, that has the possibility of an awesome photo at a "Welcome to California" sign!! Anyone know one that is out of bounds?

    Thanks, I did my research, I have both an AZ hunting permit and invitation from the pistol club which keeps me legal under US federal law. I can OC in both NV and AZ, but have yet to ascertain as to whether I can CC in AZ under "constitutional carry" law.

    I think this is the sign the photo opportunity is for:
