I am currently waiting on my NV resident CCW, and I wanted to know - can I carry in establishments which serve alcohol? If I am not drinking is this legal? I am mainly referring to Clark County which I visit regularly.

If there are not many NV highroaders here, where are some other resources I could look at?

The NRS seems to be silent on that issue. Nonetheless, I'm sure it would not be wise to be involved in a SD event intoxicated - courts would probably frown on that...

You may not carry in bars or casinos in Nevada even if not drinking. A big no-no. You can carry in a restrant if you are not drinking. Do not get caught anywhere in Nevada with a CCW if you have alcohole on your berath period!!

Sorry Keith, but you are incorrect. It is perfectly legal to carry concealed in a casino or bar in Nevada. I believe that the City of Las Vegas may have an ordnance forbidding it, although I'm not sure. By the way, the strip casinos are not in Las Vegas. They are in unincorporated Clark County. The city limits on Las Vegas Blvd end at Sahara Ave.

That is one of the real challenges to the CCW, trying to stay correctly informed! What I hear from LEO's may contradict what I was taught by my instructors(one of which was a LEO), in this confusion this forum is a great help..

look me up when you get here.
I was told by my instructor that you can carry into bars but cops don't like drunk ccw'ers casino's are often posted but they can only ask you to leave and if you don't, you get a ticket (for trespass).
when they post the casino's around here they use little, really little signs that no one see's or obeys.
I've been told by the head of a major casino security that they practice don't ask don't tell policy.
I was asked to leave Hard Rock hotel in Vegas because I inadvertently flashed my glock (T shirt summertime) but no LE was called or anything like that.
I've just spent an hour trying to find an NRS that says I can't go to a bar while packing and I have not found one, if you can cite NRS please do so.
Ido not drink but I go to see bands once in awhile and I never leave my gun at home or in the car.

Then why does Metro Vice work the Strip Casinos?

Well, it has been about 8 years since I left Las Vegas, but I think I can still answer.

LV Metro covers Clark County. I am not sure when it happened but the LV Police Dept and the Clark County Sheriffs Dept merged. This one unit became Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Dept.

And that is why metro works the casinos on the strip, and anywhere else in Clark county they may be needed.

I was this close (very) to accepting a job with them following my retirement from the Navy in 1992. But reason prevailed and I entered another job field.

Then why does Metro Vice work the Strip Casinos?

LVMPD was formerly two police departments before being combined in 1972 or 73.
Las Vegas and Clark County each had their own police force. Today, Metro handles all of it. There are other police forces in Clark County including North Las Vegas PD, Henderson PD and Mesquite PD as well as city Marshalls, Park Police, and even University police (they patrol UNLV) We also have NHP which is a state police force and operates anywhere in the state.

As far as the law goes, NV law is silent on carrying in establishments serving alcohol as well as casinos although if the establishment says no guns, you, by law, must leave it in the car.

I'm looking for the pertinent section right now, but I'm almost positive that using your weapon while intoxicated is a big no-no. It may also include carrying the weapon, but I'm not sure. To be safe, if you plan on drinking or doing drugs (any drug...including legal ones that intoxicate) leave your gun locked up.

There is a waiting period for buying a handgun in Clark County unless you have a blue card. The blue card is just a handgun registration card. Any handgun you own while living in Clark County must be registered. Long guns are exempt and there is no waiting period for those. You must pass a background check every time even if you have a previous blue card. A CCW exempts you from waiting periods and background checks.

This is not a Clark County regulation it is a Las Vegas regulation. Feel free to drive into Henderson if you want to walk out with a handgun the day you buy it.

It's much better then Vegas, it's a real city but we don't have the crowds and the LA style politics. It is gun friendly here...now if we only had more high roaders and an indoor range!

I just amazes me that a city regulation can over rule a state gun regulation.
I.E. Las Vegas, Chicago, NYC to infinity.......

Michigan State law says State law superceded Local, city, townships, county parks, city parks.


I just don't know :banghead:

Hey gang,

New member from Reno here. Perhaps I can shed some light on the situation. Here in real Nevada (Vegas is really part of the prk) you can carry just about everywhere with the exceptions that gunsmith noted. Here in Reno the only casino that I know of that posts a "no firearms sign" is Harrahs. Most of us just refuse to patronize them and a few just ignore it. If they catch you they will ask you to leave and if you refuse they will call the police and have you cited for misdemeanor tresspassing. The late Phoenix casino had posted a "no firearms sign", but qualified it saying CCW was ok.

As far as alcohol is concerned carrying in a bar is permitted and so is drinking up to a bac of .08%. Same as our DUI laws. I dont think I really need to explain here why no one in their right mind should do this, but I have always been fascinated by the way this was written.

As far as Armed and Safe and the Mustang range goes. Neil and Kelly Connolly are really awesome people. Neil is an former california sheriffs deputy, and Kelly is a school teacher. They have combined their skills to put together a really top notch CCW training program. Most of my family has gone through their program as well as quite a few of their other classes. They use Mustang range for qualifying students as well as holding machine gun shoots and a variety of other events. The live fire and dry fire houses are used for fof training. Neither are an indoor range. We did have one indoor range here in Reno, but it was closed due to lead contamination. Since then the city has been reluctant to allow for another such site.
