    I bought a house in Vegas and Im moving some stuff down there next week I was curious if there are any special laws concerning gun owner ship, like purchasing... do I have to have an NV drivers license? Transporting... do I have to have a lock in a case? etc. CCW... can you ccw and how hard is it to get a ccw license? Any any other info you could provide me would be appreciated thanks. Keep in mind this is going to be a second home, my main residence will remain in ND, but Im planning on leaving a gun in Vegas for HD.

    Thanks! So according to that site if I bring a gun from ND to NV I have to take it in and have it registered to get a blue card. If thats the case its easier to buy a gun down there and let the shop do the registration for me. But It doesn't say in there anywhere about purchasing a firearm in nevada if I do not posses a NV license. Funny you can drive around with a loaded gun as long as its not concealed on a person or in a the vehicle?

    I think the most I would stay is a week at at time. And for the most part I wouldn't go out shooting, it would just stay at the house for HD

    North LV has a different set of laws than the rest of Clark county.

    CCW is not all that hard to obtain. Take a class, qualify with each weapon you want, get finger printed, turn in your paperwork and wait. I am not sure about purchasing w/ an out of state license, but the local gun store will only handle the background check, you then bring the gun and id to a local metro sub station and they will issue you your blue card while you wait

    My response only applies to the City of Las Vegas and unicorporated Clark County.

    First things first. Clark County has a mandatory gun registration law. Any firearm you own with a barrel under 12" must be registered at your nearest police station within 72 hours. You must go to the station with the gun, and they make you a shitty little card which makes it perfectly legal. As for a NV ID, if you are living here full time, you have 60 days to switch your driver's license.

    CCW wise, they are pretty easy to get. When you register your gun, you can inquire and they will give you information along with the application. IIRC, the application fee is right at $100, and you must take a CCW class and qualify with every gun you plan to carry. If you use one revolver, all are covered. For semi-autos, your CCW card lists each gun and serial number. Don't get caught carrying a gun not on your CCW, it is bad ju ju. The classes usually run around $60. A lot of people get both the NV and UT CCW, since it makes you able to carry in 31 states.

    You can also transport your firearm anywhere in your vehicle, and it can be loaded. It cannot be concealed on your person without a CCW, but in your vehicle is fine. You may not discharge the firearm within the Las Vegas valley. If you go to North Las Vegas (normally indicated by blue street signs as opposed to green) be VERY careful, since they have retarded transport laws.

    Open carry is also legal in Nevada and you shouldn't have many issues. I do have a word of advice - don't OC in a casino, they will kick you out and possibly trespass you. Nevada is a right to refuse service state, you they can kick your ass out for any reason they want.

    Thanks, but as I stated LV will be a second residence that I wont be spending more than a week at a time at. SO I will not be getting a NV license. Hence why I wanted to know if its possible to purchase firearms in NV without a NV license. In ND you just need a US license but Im sure each state is different, thats why im asking.

    Federally speaking, you can purchase a long gun out of state provided it is legal in your home state. Handguns must be shipped to an FFL in your home state.

    There could be stricter local laws though, or even just store policy prohibiting sale to anyone with an out-of-state DL.

    You can register it without a NV license.
