Yes!!! :D

On Friday June 15, 2007 The Gov. of Nevada signed into law SB 237 The Nevada CCW Reciprocity Bill. It will take effect on Oct 1, 2007 and a list of states with Reciprocity will be available by July, 1, 2007.

I spoke with the Nevada Department of Public Safety and they are meeting to discuss it in a couple of days. They will have a list of States by July 1, 2007. The nice person there will call me back and let me know if the Utah or Florida permits will be accepted.

She said that permits with the same or more stringent qualifications will have reciprocity. If I remember correctly there WAS a live shooting proficiency with the Florida permit but NOT the Utah therfore I'm guessing that the Florida permit will have reciprocity and the Utah will not because Nevada requores live fire testing.

Any idea if AZ is going to be on the list?

I hope Idaho is going to be on the list, but with a live shooting requirement it probably won't be :(

Woo Hoo. As an Illinois resident this is another reason to get a Florida permit because it adds the last state that I regularly visit.

Now if they could just get a Las Vegas Preemption bill through the NV legislature maybe I would consider moving there.

(if not, how long does it take to register about 25 handguns as a new LVNV resident?)

if not, how long does it take to register about 25 handguns as a new LVNV residentI was told by an officer at the SW command 3 per day... but I don't know if that's written in stone. It takes about 15 minutes max for the transfers I've done. One we did in Henderson took all of 5 minutes from the time we walked in the door. Any of the local PD will perform the "Blue Card" task I believe as long as your driver's license shows your residency in their jurisdiction.

It still sux in a way as it's the single biggest fly in the ointment, but the Sheriff of Clark CO pulls a lot of weight in these here parts. (As Chicago drives IL, I'm afeard that LV/CC does sam ting to NV... much to the detriment of the rest of the state... Hey, Let us steal your water, we need it more and we need it NOW!)

But the reciprocity is a good thing.

Florida does not have a live shooting requirement. They just require a basic NRA pistol safety class.

This will definitely make my trips to the Reno area a bit easier.

Thanks for the info.

Definitely looking forward to the list! Would love to see if VA and NH make the grade!

I'm hoping that AZ makes the list, we have the live fire requirement. Being in the North West corner of AZ I'm in AZ, NV, UT, NM and now CO all the time - adding NV rounds out my exposure.

Be safe, BSR

Great news.

I'm going to spend some money in NV this fall. I like the northern part, Lake Tahoe, Reno and Virginia City.

Haven't been back to Las Vegas since I saw roller coasters in the casinos.

Wonder if the "Smokin' Aces" suite is available? :D

I'm close enough that I've been toying with travelling to NV just to get their non-resident permit anyway. If this covers UT non-resident my summer just got a whole lot better!

Check out SECTION 11 (http://art1sec11.blogspot.com)for a definitive rundown on firearm related laws passed in the just concluded Nevada Legislative session.

Las Vegas' unconstitutional handgun registration was modified, but it is still in existence. No one has indicated which states will be included in reciprocity, so don't y'all hold your breath.

Seriously, with all the Global Warming thats happening, and the BIG Earthquake about to hit California, Vegas will soon have nice ocean breezes and all the water (just a little salty) it needs :uhoh:.

I hope we in NV get reciprocity with FL now and VA because I have relatives there.

But if we are required by law to register handguns within 24 hours, wouldn't that be breaking the law?

WRONG.

Live shooting has been required for several years now (it was not required back when I took the course back in the early 90s). "Live shooting" means one freaking round, but it is live and it is shooting.

I've gone with both my girlfriend and a friend through this--take the class at the gun show, then they have to head over to a nearby range.

Also, it is not necessarily a standard NRA pistol safety class--it is most often a class that deals primarily with the legal obligations that come along with concealed carry in Florida.

This was changed as well.

Non-NV residents in Clark County are required to register their handguns with the LVMPD, if they stay more than 30 days in Clark County.
NV residents living in Clark County have 72 hours to register their handguns with the LVMPD.

I looked at Nevada Department of Public Safety, couldn't find any list.
Does anyone know where I can get an updated list of reciprocity?
meaning what other states I can carry in?
Hopefully FL?

Also, it is not necessarily a standard NRA pistol safety class--it is most often a class that deals primarily with the legal obligations that come along with concealed carry in Florida.

I took the class less than 6 months ago. No shooting whatsoever. The class has to be accreditted by a recognized body. The NRA is one such body. My class certificate simply says NRA Basic Pistol or something along those lines.

A photocopy of a certificate of completion of any of the courses or classes; or an affidavit from the instructor, school, club, organization, or group that conducted or taught said course or class attesting to the completion of the course or class by the applicant; or a copy of any document which shows completion of the course or class or evidences participation in firearms competition shall constitute evidence of qualification under this paragraph; any person who conducts a course pursuant to subparagraph 2., subparagraph 3., or subparagraph 7., or who, as an instructor, attests to the completion of such courses, must maintain records certifying that he or she observed the student safely handle and discharge the firearm;

That's interesting. A lot of the places around where I live seem to be ignoring that requirement. I thought it was a little odd that they didn't have to see me shoot.

I just looked at the Nevada site, and there is little mention except for the fact the Governor is holding a conference on it the 11th of this month.

Actually the part about carrying in buildings with signs posted is inaccurate. Those signs hold no legal weight. They are placed by the management of that building. You CAN carry into those buildings. However if they learn you are armed they have the right to ask you to leave. If you don't leave at that time you are guilty of simple tresspassing.

NRS 244.364 Limited authority to regulate firearms.

1. Except as otherwise provided by specific statute, the legislature reserves for itself such rights and powers as are necessary to regulate the transfer, sale, purchase, possession, ownership, transportation, registration and licensing of firearms and ammunition in Nevada, and no county may infringe upon those rights and powers.
2. A board of county commissioners may proscribe by ordinance or regulation the unsafe discharge of firearms.
3. As used in this section, “firearm” means any weapon from which a projectile is discharged by means of an explosive, spring, gas, air or other force.
(Added to NRS by 1989, 652)
NRS 268.418 Limited authority to regulate firearms.

1. Except as otherwise provided by specific statute, the legislature reserves for itself such rights and powers as are necessary to regulate the transfer, sale, purchase, possession, ownership, transportation, registration and licensing of firearms and ammunition in Nevada, and no city may infringe upon those rights and powers.
2. The governing body of a city may proscribe by ordinance or regulation the unsafe discharge of firearms.
3. As used in this section, “firearm” means any weapon from which a projectile is discharged by means of an explosive, spring, gas, air or other force.
(Added to NRS by 1989, 652)
NRS 269.222 Limited authority to regulate firearms.

1. Except as otherwise provided by specific statute, the legislature reserves for itself such rights and powers as are necessary to regulate the transfer, sale, purchase, possession, ownership, transportation, registration and licensing of firearms and ammunition in Nevada, and no town may infringe upon those rights and powers.
2. A town board may proscribe by ordinance or regulation the unsafe discharge of firearms.
3. As used in this section, “firearm” means any weapon from which a projectile is discharged by means of an explosive, spring, gas, air or other force.
(Added to NRS by 1989, 652)

As you can see state law does not allow private buisness to have a say in where you can and can't carry. They can put into place "dischage" laws but that is it.

NRS 202.3673 only applies to public buildings.

Posted signs only have legal weight when it's a public building.
