Hello everyone. I have a question about the non-resident CCW permit in Las Vegas I am hoping someone here can shed some light on.
I will have to give a little info in order for you to answer me so let me start out by saying I am a 28 year old man, currently living in NY. In a few months I will be traveling to Nevada to stay with my father who is a disabled USMC Vietnam Vet. He lives in Las Vegas.
I do not currently own a handgun but I have been shooting all my life. I never bothered to apply for a CCW permit here in NY simply because I didn't feel like I should have to prove myself to a judge in order to receive it. I understand in Nevada it is a more simplified process involving applying with the sherrifs department.
Obviously while staying in Las Vegas I will not be changing my residency to Nevada from NY, as I am just visiting for several months, so I would like to try to receive a non-resident carry permit. However, where I feel like I will run into a problem is this - how do I get a gun? I understand I cannot purchase a pistol in a state that I do not live in? Well I also can't purchase one in NY (the state where I do live.) because I don't have a permit or anything. So where does my gun come from?
Thank you for any insight you can provide here. I appreciate it!
