This is a discussion on Carry in "posted" buildings in Nevada? within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; If a building is posted at the entrances, like Costco, can a CCW holder legally carry? Thanks, Gyfgyf...
If a building is posted at the entrances, like Costco, can a CCW holder legally carry?

According to the NV CCW class I took, the only places that are off limits are government buildings that are posted at ALL entrances. Costco falls under trespass law.
Check the NRS to confirm. When you take the state mandated CCW class, they'll cover all of that.
A point of clarification, Nevada defines a "public building" as a building owned by the people, my CCW instructor said "as in, We The People" :)

If you have a permit that is recognised by Nevada (http://nvrepository.state.nv.us/ccw_changes.shtml) you are legal to carry anywhere, posted or not, except buildings at the airport, a public building that is located on the property of a public school or a child care facility or the property of the Nevada System of Higher Education, a public building that has a metal detector at each public entrance or a sign posted at each public entrance indicating that no firearms are allowed in the building. A "Public Building" means a government owned and operated building.
So if you have a Nevada permit, or one that is recognised in Nevada, signs on privately owned buildings, such as Costco, have no legal force. You may carry concealed anywhere not listed above. That includes bars, casinos, brothels ( they are legal in parts of Nevada), night clubs, ANYWHERE.
If anyone in authority in any establishment asks that you leave the premises you must leave or you can be charged with trespass. They do not have to state, or have, a reason to ask you to leave. YOU MUST LEAVE.
You may consume alcohol while in possession of your legally carried firearm in Nevada, in fact you are still legal if your BAC exceeds the legal limit for driving (when they lowered that to 0.08 to get federal highway funds they left the law at 0.10 for firearms). http://www.leg.state.nv.us/NRS/NRS-2...l#NRS202Sec257
IANAL and this is not legal advice.
Other than that, the places you can carry make a lot of sense.
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:
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.
Florida has not been on the "recognized" list for, I think, at least two years.
I thought it was still on the list as of last Spring when I applied for my permit, but it's a moot point now :)
It's kind of a shame to see states reducing the number of recognized permits at this point in time, when it's so important to see those lists expand.
What is the easiest way to get a NV non-res? Any suggestions for cost effective training and accommodations?
you have to take a CCW course in NV from a state certified instructor. Live fire qual for each pistol you want to carry. 100.25 through Las Vegas Metro. They issue licenses in Clark County (Vegas)
I used Kurt Gepke. Excellent teacher.
I went to this guy:
His website is horrid, but he was fantastic. Great attitude, knowledgeable of NV and national laws, and wasted no time. Every minute was informative and entertaining. The material itself was obviously contrived by a politician, so a lot of the material he covered was beyond the requirements. A lot of that might be because he could tell I was already experienced, but he exuded patience. Inexpensive too.
Dave is the name of the owner/trainer. I don't think he had anyone else working for him at the time, but he might have now.
He's in Reno, it's probably cheaper to stay there than in Vegas. I went to the Washoe County Sheriff for my permit, the wait wasn't too long there.
Kurt will (or used to) do a 1 on 1 class with you at your hotel or his place. I took a vacation there and made arrangements to do the class on one of the days I was there, he came to my hotel, and took us to the range for the live fire + loaned me his revolver to get that added to my permit. Went to the County office the next day, and submitted my app. Got my permit in less than 30 days.
