    Going to Las Vegas, NV, tonight: No permit=no cc!

    Uggg. I mean, I'm happy to be going to Vegas, even if it's just for the night. Going to The Gun Store, maybe Bass Pro, just window shopping unless I find a really great tac. flashlight. Staying at Tropicana, poker tourney at Binion's tomorrow. The b-I-l and his wife are in town for a conference, so we'll eat dinner and hang out.

    More importantly, I don't have my NV ccw (YET!!!). I debated squeezing in a ccw class and going to the sheriff's office to turn-in my application, but that didn't happen. So I'll be undergunned with only my tac. flashlight and a Kershaw OSO Sweet. I thought about cc'ing anyway, but the penalty if you're caught is class C felony. That's pretty serious. Not worth the risk of course.

    Since your flashlight is tactical you should be fine.


    Just giving you a hard time of course... Avoid the rules of stupid, stick to places with lots of people and you should be fine. I had the same problem on a trip to Puerto Rica.

    Have a safe and fun trip, leave some slobber and fingerprints on the toys at The Gun Store for me. Crank your SA up to 11!

    Last time I went to Vegas I had to leave the gun at home. All was fine. I cant wait to go back in a year or so on our anniversary.

    Stick to the Casinos and you'll be fine (well maybe not financially).

    Maybe give American Shooters a try. Not as much of a "tourist" stop as The Gun Store. Still rates high on the drool factor, and not as pricey to play on their range.

    If your luck is like mine is you won't have any money left to rob.

    Last October our son and girlfriend followed us up to Las Vegas from Twentynine Palms, California on his motorcycle after we hauled the motorcycle from Texas out to the Marine base in the back of the pickup. It was worth it to bring the motorcycle to him after his last deployment.

    It's a long dry spell when the laws of not one, but two states won't allow a guy to have his pistola! Gotta watch for that sort of thing though.

    That was dang cool of you to bring his bike out to him. As a rider myself; I know what it's like to go too long without my riding fix. Yeah; CA and NV are a pain and as the years tick by - NV is getting more and more like CA for some reason. I guess it's the high population of libby's in Vegas. Since 93% of NV is owned by the Federal government; Vegas is the main population place. Reno and Tahoe along with the bunches of small towns don't stand a chance when it comes voting time.

    I was thinking of getting the NV CCW and I still might but something about paying the $97.50 for the permit and spending all that time in class again for just one state is sticking in my craw right now. The 4 month wait kinda sucks too.

    As you likely know; AZ does not require a permit unless you are going into some place that serves alcohol. We also have reciprocity with something like 30 states. Nevada was one of them until they said they didn't approve of our CCW permit requirements. Oh well.

    The wife and I have gone to Vegas many time and I was hoping that the next time we go I would be able to take my firearm with me. We always drive to make it a good vacation so I was going to take it but I think that I would still take it but just to follow the rules. I have WA,AZ and OR permit but none of the ones I have NV want cover it.

    Let me tell ya what happened that re-affirmed my belief in carrying a f'light. About a month ago, I bought a cheapo f'light from Dick's sporting goods. $19.99 but 130 lumens and 4" so not that bad. I mostly wanted to see if I would carry it some. Well I carried it all the time. Ok, so flashforward to a our night in Vegas. Got the pocket knife and the f'light, no ccw. We go eat dinner at the buffet at the Rio (which was terrible, btw). We just finished dinner, eating dessert, drinking coffee, when the lights go out casino-wide. I mean pitch f'n black. I whip out the f'light and save the day. Emergency power kicks in at 30 seconds, full lights back on in about 2 min. But for those few seconds you couldn't see your hand in front of your face. F'light carry? Heck yeah! When we got home, I ordered an Eagletac D25C Clicky: 300 max lumens at 2.5". Awesome light!

    Don't get me wrong: I love, LOVE Vegas. There's just something about it. When I lived in Texas, we went maybe twice in our married life. Enjoyed it, yada, yada. But then we moved to southern Utah, and Vegas is only two hours away. Now we're down there between 6-12 times a year. Sometimes to see family and hangout, like this last time. But sometimes it's with our kids to shop for clothes and such. We're going again in June 14 to have dinner with one of my wife's sister and her husband who are coming to Vegas for a vacation. Dinner, a show, some (or a lot) of popmatic craps. It should be fun.

    Sometimes I forget how "safe" Vegas CAN be if you stick to casinos or crowded places, even at 1:00 am. If I had to drive across town, I wouldn't stay out much later than that, but gambling our own casino? Safe even to 3:00 am. But we were on Fremont at 11:00 pm on a Friday night. Let me tell ya, THAT place is weird and awesome and crazy and cool and funky. And safe, at least at that time.
