Welcome... I'm in Henderson NV..
Don't worry too much about being "proficient" to qualify at a CCW class here, there was a girl in my class who had never even held a gun before, rented one, had them show her how it worked and then qualified with it...she passed. The CCW class is a joke, take the free class at The Gun Store then take it upon yourself to do what you have to do to learn more...good place to start right here :).

Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
You may wish to try New Frontier (NLV), Lock N' Load (Henderson), and Davidson Gun Genie Link:

Dam Town Pawn sometimes is cheaper if you want to drive to Boulder City.
As for your CCW, if you're familiar with handguns you may wish to save your training money and go to The Gun Store for their free CCW class. You can get qualified for Nevada, Utah, and Florida in the same class. Free means there is not class charge, but you pay for ammo and range fees. After that then I recommend several training classes.
If you need more info PM me and I'll give you the local groups.

http://www.newfrontierarmory.comNew Frontier Armory in North Las Vegas. Great customer service and very fair prices. You can even search their website for the gun you want to see if they have it in stock.
I've heard of paladin but haven't really looked into them. Several years ago, before I bought a gun I was talked into buying a lifetime diamond membership at Front Sight. I won't get into all that now.
