    Trip to Vegas through Boulder City

    Hi, all. I know it is illegal to even carry a gun in the car through Boulder City and they have no peaceable journey laws, so what do people do when driving to Vegas from Arizona? I don't know any other practical way to get to Vegas from Phoenix. I have an AZ CCW and I would like to carry at least driving into Nevada (which does not recognize any other state's CCW, but seems open carry friendly). What if I unloaded it and locked it in its carrying case before I reach Hoover Dam (which may be another issue!)?

    I appreciate the advice!

    Where did you get your information? I lived in Bouder City NV from 1978-1993 and then moved to Henderson Nv. 1993-2007

    Boulder City has one of the oldest gun ranges in southern Nevada, dating back to WWII.

    BCR&P Club have a public range open on Tuesday, Thursday, Sat & Sun
    they also host the SASS state championship and are the home of the Eldorado Cowboys.

    They shoot rifle "F" class once a month etc. Its kind of hard to have all that shooting going on and not being able to to transport a weapon through town.

    They also host an "across the course" military match

    BTW I have JUST moved to the Tombstone Az area.

    Open carry is frowned on in Clark County and Washoe County except in the unpopulated areas read (desert). the rest of the state doesn't have a problem.

    If you have a NV CCW resident or non resident permit (the non residence gun must be registered with the LVMPD as NV CCW is gun specific) you can legally carry in the casinos as they are not posted, however if you are asked to leave because your gun was observed you must leave or you can be arrested for tresspass.

    Most of the time if you are seen, the casino security will ask you to take you CCW weapon and put it in your car and then welcome you back.

    Without a NV CCW just unload it and lock it in your trunk. and drive safe.

    Yea I've only been in Vegas for about 2 years but I've never heard that about Boulder City. I have heard that North Las Vegas doesn't like it so much but I was just told that if you were stopped they'd make you separate your pistol from the ammo in the trunk. That's only what I've read, no personal experience.

    Thanks! I got this information from Packing.org:

    "Nevada State Law is silent on motor vehicle carriage of firearms. Any law-abiding citizen may carry a handgun, loaded or unloaded, in their vehicle.

    Some cities like North Las Vegas and Boulder City have "Deadly Weapon" laws, and you may be cited or arrested if you pass through their jurisdictions with a gun in the vehicle.

    Boulder City

    7-1-3: Discharging Firearms, Air Guns:
    No person except a sheriff, constable or police officer shall fire or discharge any firearms or air guns of any description within one thousand (1,000) yards of any building, street, sidewalk, alley, highway or other public place or have any firearms or air gun in his possession within one thousand (1,000) yards of any building, street, sidewalk, alley, highway or public place unless it is unloaded and knocked down or enclosed within a carrying case; provided, that this Section shall not prevent the maintenance and use of duly supervised rifle or pistol ranges or shooting galleries authorized by the City Council. This Section shall not prohibit the stocking of firearms by duly authorized dealers in the same."

    Would having a CCW allow me to keep it concealed if I were driving through?

    Don't forget driving across Hoover dam -- a Federal facility -- has its issues. If the alert level is raised, you might get searched. Having a weapon, any weapon, on the dam is a no-no.

    I drive to Phx via Laughlin. It is 28 miles longer and almost 20 minutes *faster*.

    Good luck!

    Only Nevada permits (except retired LEO) are honored

    Unload then and lock them in your truck.

    Don;t try and figure out the firearms laws of Clark County Las Vegas, Henderson, Boulder City or North Las Vegas, the locals have a had a hard enought time doing it.

    I will not name the Clark County Nv jurdiscations just posting some examples:

    1. Guns may be loaded and in plain sight.

    2. Mag inserted into or attached to weapon rifle or handgun maybe loaded but not the chamber including shotguns. Revolvers must not have rounds in the cylinders.

    3. One jurisdication tried to not honor the CCW, by a new police chief, that was over turned in court.
    4. Guns must be unloaded and locked in the trunk.

    5. Guns maybe fully loaded and carried in the vehicle including the glove box without a CCW, but not concealed on your person.

    You may pass in and out of 4 of the jurisdications without your knowledge,

    Boulder City is excluded as it seperated by the mountains if you stay on the highway.

    Off highway you can pass into Clark County proper or Henderson without your knowledge. even into Calif

    Henderson PD tried to bust 3 of us for shooting inside the city limits until we proved that we were in Clark County not Henderson, The officer was polite about it.

    Even for the locals without a CCW #4 "unloaded and locked in your trunk" seems to work best everywhere.

    I have a Nevada CCW, so I just carry concealed. That said, it is legal to carry a gun in a car in NV. It can be on the seat, or in the glove box, etc. Boulder City and North Las Vegas (North Las Vegas is a separate city from Las Vegas). When passing through these areas, take out the magazine, unload the weapon, and lock them in a carry case and stick tham in the trunk. And. While Nevada does not at this point recognize other states CCW, in the RJ today, was a report of a bill that is currently in the state legislature. Believe it or not, a Democrat in the legislature wants to honor other states permits. The evavluation by the state attourney general will be that the state getting reciprocity must have requirements for carry equal or greater than our own. They expect that thare will be around 15 states that will meet the requirement.

    when traveling through BC to get the vegas from arizona....just keep driving and dont worry about it. Since you will be traveling along the highway and main thoroughfare, and it takes all of about 5 minutes to get through the city, dont worry. As long as you are a law abiding respectable citizen, even if you did happen to get pulled over and asked in you have any weapons in the vehicle, chances are since you are simply passing through that they'll let you slide.

    Clark county is a nazi regime.

    I just had to go get blue cards for my firearms so I can get my CCW because they don't recognize my AZ cwp.

    They allow cc in places that serve open alchohol like casinos yet az does not but they do not recognize it.

    What a joke. Clark County BLOWS

    Oh and law states that it can be loaded in your car as long as it is NOT concealed on your person, unless you have a Nevada cwp.

    They CAN confiscate it if you do not have a blue card but more than likely if you are out of area person who does not frequent the area and are just visiting or passing through they won't.
