    I hope this helps.

    ---------------------------
    Nevada law (IANAL):
    Nevada is a de facto open carry state and you may open carry if you choose. If you open carry in the high traffic tourist areas of Las Vegas you may have a visit from Metro or, Casino personnel may/will ask you to leave the property if you open carry in any casino. If anyone in authority in any private establishment asks you to leave you must leave under Nevada's trespass law.

    There is no restriction on having a firearm in your car, open or concealed as long as it is not concealed on your person (unless you have a permit).

    There is statewide preemption, but the Attorney General, on her web-site indicates that she may not think it applies in all cases.

    http://ag.state.nv.us/about/faqs/firearms/carry.htm

    If you have a permit that is valid in Nevada:

    Out of State Carry Concealed Weapon Permit Recognition

    Effective July 1, 2010

    In accordance with NRS 202.3689 (effective October 1, 2007) the State of Nevada will recognize the following States' CCW permit holders:

    Alaska
    Arkansas
    Kansas
    Louisiana
    Michigan
    Missouri
    Nebraska
    New Mexico
    North Carolina
    Ohio
    Tennessee
    Rhode Island
    West Virginia


    This law allows holders of valid permits from these states to carry a concealed weapon while in the State of Nevada. The permit must be in the possession of the issue at all times while carrying a firearm.

    CCW Prohibited Locations defined by NRS 202.3673
    Please note that Nevada no longer recognizes CCW permits issued by Utah and Florida. For additional information, please refer to the Nevada Sheriffsā€™ and Chiefsā€™ Association press release link: NVSCA CCW Press Release

    CCW Prohibited Locations defined by NRS 202.3673

    http://nvrepository.state.nv.us/ccw_changes.shtml

    http://www.leg.state.nv.us/NRs/NRS-2...#NRS202Sec3688

    -----------------------------

    You may carry concealed in Nevada ANYWHERE except:

    Buildings at the airport,
    Schools (including colleges) and child care facilitys,
    Public buildings (that means Government buildings) that are posted or have metal detectors.

    http://www.leg.state.nv.us/NRs/NRS-2...#NRS202Sec3673

    That includes casinos, bars, clubs, restaurants, whorehouses (they are legal in parts of Nevada), ANYWHERE. They may ask you to leave for any reason, or no reason at all, and, under Nevada's trespass law, you must leave.

    You may drink while carrying. The BAC limit is 0.10 (DUI is 0.08, when they lowered it to get federal highway money they did not change the limit for CCW).

    http://www.leg.state.nv.us/NRs/NRS-2...l#NRS202Sec257

    -------------------------------------------------

    I hope this clears up any questions. Nevada laws concerning weapons are, for the most part at NRS 202.253 through 202.369.

    Have fun in Nevada. Bring lots of money.

    Crimes Against the Person http://www.leg.state.nv.us/NRs/NRS-200.html

    NRS 200.120 ā€œJustifiable homicideā€ defined. Justifiable homicide is the killing of a human being in necessary self-defense, or in defense of habitation, property or person, against one who manifestly intends, or endeavors, by violence or surprise, to commit a felony, or against any person or persons who manifestly intend and endeavor, in a violent, riotous, tumultuous or surreptitious manner, to enter the habitation of another for the purpose of assaulting or offering personal violence to any person dwelling or being therein.

    [1911 C&P Ā§ 129; RL Ā§ 6394; NCL Ā§ 10076]ā€”(NRS A 1983, 518)

    http://www.leg.state.nv.us/NRs/NRS-2...l#NRS200Sec120

    NRS 200.130 Bare fear insufficient to justify killing; reasonable fear required. A bare fear of any of the offenses mentioned in NRS 200.120, to prevent which the homicide is alleged to have been committed, shall not be sufficient to justify the killing. It must appear that the circumstances were sufficient to excite the fears of a reasonable person, and that the party killing really acted under the influence of those fears and not in a spirit of revenge.

    [1911 C&P Ā§ 130; RL Ā§ 6395; NCL Ā§ 10077]

    http://www.leg.state.nv.us/NRs/NRS-2...l#NRS200Sec130

    NRS 200.200 Killing in self-defense. If a person kills another in self-defense, it must appear that:

    1. The danger was so urgent and pressing that, in order to save his own life, or to prevent his receiving great bodily harm, the killing of the other was absolutely necessary; and

    2. The person killed was the assailant, or that the slayer had really, and in good faith, endeavored to decline any further struggle before the mortal blow was given.

    [1911 C&P Ā§ 137; RL Ā§ 6402; NCL Ā§ 10084]

    http://www.leg.state.nv.us/NRs/NRS-2...l#NRS200Sec200

    BODILY INJURY

    NRS 200.275 Justifiable infliction or threat of bodily injury not punishable.

    Thanks Ken, that is a big Help. I knew Kansas was Reciprocal, wasn't sure about the casino's/ hotel's, Since you can't carry in them here in Kansas as they are all on Indian Land.

    So, basically if it's not posted otherwise, and your not asked to leave, then your good to go. Not planning on going to any schools or govt offices while I'm there. I'll have to wait till I get off the airport grounds before I dig through my luggage. Bring some spending cash, Not much of a gambler, Going for my 20th anniversary. Just going to see the sites and catch some shows.

    "(I)f it's not posted otherwise,"

    Please note that signs/posting have no legal impact unless it is a government (the definition of "PUBLIC") building. Very few places are posted here, but in almost all cases it doesn't matter if they are.

    The sights and the shows and the food and drink are great. Congrats on your 20th. Enjoy.

    Doc,

    I am not a LV resident but I do spend more time than I care to there. I have a NR permit and carry virtually everywhere there except the airport of course. technically, the rental car center is now "airport property" so it may not be legal to arm up when I get the rental car but such is life. I have not noticed many casinos that post no carry but as mentioned earlier, it really means nothing. The worst that can happen is they ask you to leave. As stated elsewhere on these boards, concealed means concealed. A good rule to live by in Vegas.

    On a side note, I have seen metal detectors at a few locations in casinos. If I remember correctly, once was at the MGM for a concert. The other was at the Stratosphere to take the ride to the top of the tower. I had to check a couple pocket knives for fear that I might hi-jack the building if I were allowed to ride the elevator to the top. That was about five years ago so it may have changed.

    Enjoy your trip and catch a couple good shows. Remember to play the buffet because there is a winner every time.

    I would also add, be careful if traveling in North Las Vegas. They do not recognize CC permits.

    I just spent a week in Vegas (15th anniversary) and I thought I would pass on a tip for a great meal that we discovered. We stayed near the South Point casino which is on the way south end of the strip and they have a prime rib restaurant in the casino that was fantastic. They have what is called the cowboy cut $19.95 that is a 2 plus inches thick slab of prime rib with large baked potato and soup or salad. I will go back just for that meal LOL. If you want to go shooting while in town check out this range it was the nicest range I have ever been to.

    That's not quite true. You can't open carry in North Las Vegas. You can CC there. My office was in North Las Vegas and I cc'ed there everyday and even had a few conversations about with the local LEO's at a few of the restaurants.

    I found my prime rib at Terrible Herbst Casino's Bougainvillea Cafe for $9.95 with veggies, potato, and salad. It was 16oz. The shooting range was developed with help from both the NRA and Harry Reid, the Nevada congressman. I have walked many miles up and down the strip and up and down Paradise road. Always in daylight but never felt any threat. This was before I got my CWP but always saw a lot of police & sheriff presence. I don't gamble but saw good free or low cost shows. Even got on stage as a part of a really good afternoon magic performance. LV is a nice place to visit; just keep that situational awareness as always.

    The NRA has filed a lawsuit against North town over their continued enforcement of the city law in spite of the NV law that states NV law preempts all local laws

    North Las Vegas will most likely lose
