    Question Going to Arizona, what do I need to know?

    Hi,

    I am going to Arizona, Mesa next month.
    I am a NV UT FL permit holder. Arizona honors both Utah and Florida permits which one should I bring with myself? (maybe both?)
    I am going to carry concealed. I am going to drive there from Las Vegas.
    What are the things what I need to know?
    What are the off-limit places?
    Do I need to notify LEO's?
    For the record I'm gonna bring three handguns with me and lots of ammo. One will be concealed on me (my carry gun) the other two for the competition what I am going to attend.

    Any help appreciated Folks,
    I carry a gun cause I can't carry a cop.

    Arizona recognizes NV CCW, don't know about Utah & FL.
    They also don't have the cumbersome, expensive, and detrimental to gun sales, NV requirement that every gun carried concealed be qualified for and listed on the permit.

    Revolvers are now the exception to that rule in NV. Qualify with one, carry any. Hopefully we can get that for semi-autos in '09.

    Arizona is right below Utah and on the west side of New Mexico!

    J/K - Have a great time!
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    Why pick or choose which one to carry? At one point in time I had OK, VA and PA permits, I always carried all 3 with me.

    The serial number rule for carry guns are for resident only, and it's my understanding that that is no longer in efferct in Nevada. I don't know of any such law in Arizona.

    I'm a Nevada resident carrying in Arizona right now. Watch the alcohol rule, I ate at a restaurant yesterday and didn't see beer or wine on the menu. On the way out, I noticed a small 'no firearms' sign in the entrance that I missed on the way in. Either nobody noticed my pistol, or they really didn't care. I used to live here, and it's a pretty tolerant state regarding sidearms-open carry is legal and mostly ignored by others except in the bigger cities. Use either permit, it doesn't matter, relax, and enjoy your visit.

    Also, go gun shopping; prices are better here than Vegas.

    Although your answer depends on who you get...
    Why is it that you always find things at the last place you looked?

    You're also good to go crossing Indian reservations as long as you stay within 100' of the through highway. If you're going inside a place of business, I'm not completely sure what is/is not legal, but I always leave mine in the car...

    Your permits are valid in AZ. This is an open-carry state, and folks are used to seeing weapons. Of course, it's better to conceal properly. Businesses are required to post "no weapons" if they don't want you there. Off sale liquor stores are OK, but not in bars. Government offices are required by law to provide secure storage for your legal weapons, but many haven't got around to comply yet. Indian Reservations (and we have a bunch) generally forbid weapons, but allow for "passing through" carry. Welcome to AZ!
