    Carry to Vegas

    I tend to take vacations to Vegas. Just curious how many here carry in Vegas on vacations and what your experience has been like, especially in the casinos and the fremont street experience.

    I just came back a few weeks ago, I did not carry but felt safe most of the time.

    I'm planning another trip and am thinking of bringing my g19 since Nevada honors my Ohio permit.

    I have a NV CCW permit. here is my expeience

    Don't OC on the strip, downtown, or in a Casino. You'll be asked to leave immediately and if on the strip, expect a visit from Metro. I have OC'd all over town except for the above mentioned places. No issues. Don't look for trouble and you'll be fine IMO.

    Good feedback. I did not carry last trip because I was not sure how it would be accepted and I surely do not want any trouble.

    Nevada is an OC state, but the strip does not want panicked sheep (INCOME) because of random people carrying a gun.

    Understandable, and I respect their wishes on this aspect when I visit. CC only.

    Nevada doesn't honor my Colorado permit. I generally prefer not to go there as I'm just not into the Vegas scene but when I do I obey their laws.

    There are a lot of open carry in Vegas stories here: Nevada

    Also, this may help:

    ---------------------------
    Nevada law (IANAL):
    Nevada is a defacto 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 indicades 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:

    Recognition of permits issued by other states:

    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

    Nevada Department of Public Safety

    NRS: CHAPTER 202 - CRIMES AGAINST PUBLIC HEALTH AND SAFETY

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

    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.

    NRS: CHAPTER 202 - CRIMES AGAINST PUBLIC HEALTH AND SAFETY

    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).

    NRS: CHAPTER 202 - CRIMES AGAINST PUBLIC HEALTH AND SAFETY

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

    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 NRS: CHAPTER 200 - CRIMES AGAINST THE PERSON

    NRS 200.120 €œJustifiable homicide€ 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 § 129; RL § 6394; NCL § 10076]€”(NRS A 1983, 518)

    NRS: CHAPTER 200 - CRIMES AGAINST THE PERSON

    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 § 130; RL § 6395; NCL § 10077]

    NRS: CHAPTER 200 - CRIMES AGAINST THE PERSON

    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 § 137; RL § 6402; NCL § 10084]

    NRS: CHAPTER 200 - CRIMES AGAINST THE PERSON

    BODILY INJURY

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

    Thanks for the info guys. I did not carry last trip because I was worried that I would have a bit to much to drink. Honestly I do not drink at home but sometimes in Vegas I do, in reality I was sober so it would have been good, BUT I did not want to risk it. I know most say its ok to drive after having one beer, I am the type I wont even risk that, so maybe I am a bit too cautious.

    Oh, if anyone finds the $1800 I lost while in Vegas, please PM me

    In case you missed it in with all the other stuff I posted:

    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).

    NRS: CHAPTER 202 - CRIMES AGAINST PUBLIC HEALTH AND SAFETY

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

    Just don't shoot anyone unless you really need to.

    Oh, and I have your $$$. If you want it back just look me up in the poker room. Good luck and have fun.

    I seen that, I am just overly cautious. When I was married, my now ex-wife and I bought some Mikes Hard Lemonade and I drank one, i refused to drive after it for a few hours. I am just not wanting to risk anything that can make a cop raise a eyebrow.
