    Nevada rules on "revolvers"--

    --been out of touch for a while due to work . As of last spring, it appeared that no longer was individual qualification with a"revolver" necessary on the concealed carry permit, IOW, one was allowed to carry any "revolver" after an initial qualification.

    At the time I was unable to get any official confirmation on this--anybody out there got any detail or a reference?

    Yes, in Nevada a revolver is a revolver. Having on on your card allows you to carry any revolver. Sorry I don't have a more concrete source for you, but I'm 100% certain about this (unless it changed while I was typing the message, pesky politicians.)

    Your permit has to say "Revolvers Authorized". See NV SB237.

    Wait so Nevadians have to have each gun authorized to carry and to qualify with that particular gun?

    One revolver qualifys you for all revolvers, but must qualify with each semi auto? That sucks big time. VA you are allowed to carry whatever kind of handgun you want. Nothing listed on your permit. Even Oklahoma was better when I got my permit therem, if you qualified with a semi you could carry semi or revolver, qual with revolver and you could carry a revolver.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    My permit reads "REV YES". That covers any revolver. The original bill was to also cover semi-autos but B. Anderson killed that portion.

    My last NV renewal while I was still a NV resident was issued in April 2004 and lists my revolver as Make, Model and Serial number...so unfortunately my info is outdated. :(

    So can you only have one listed? You only have a choice of semi auto OR a revolver? Both can't be put on the permit?
    What about out of state permits? Can they carry anything they want?

    We are allowed to carry any handgun we want. Revolver or Semi-auto. No restrictions on our license. We can also carry more than one gun.

    Our mandatory CCW class includes range time where you must shoot with both revolver and semi-auto pistols to obtain your permit.

    Some ccw classes provide guns for the students, others don't.

    The one my wife and I took, guns were provided by the instructor. I asked about why he provided the weapons and his answer was that he knew the guns were in proper working order and safe condition and hoped that would reduce liability somewhat.

    Revolvers were Taurus Mod. 85 (.38 spl.) snubs and the Semi's were Sig P232's (.380 acp.)

    Restrictions on Reciprocity?

    In Michigan we did not have to qualify with a specific type of pistol. How does this Nevada revolver / semiauto qualification issue affect our carrying in Nevada?

    --previously, each weapon you qualified with had to be listed on the permit--now each semi-auto is listed as to make and model (no serial #) but as noted above "revolvers" only in general---

    Exclamation It's a real bad idea to let the police make law!!

    That is what happens when you let a bunch of Police Chiefs decide how law is to be interpreted!

    In Texas if you qualify with a revolver you can only carry a revolver but if you qualify with a semi you can carry either revolvers or semi's
