    Hello from Las Vegas

    Just turned 20 and have been waiting since I was 18 to get my CCW ever since my mother and I got robbed at gunpoint. I am familiar with rifles and shotguns but have never fired a handgun.

    The shooting range I went to here said they are not allowed to rent a handgun to anyone under 21, is there anyway I can legally rent a handgun so I can have a year's practice under my belt without purchasing a firearm before applying for my CCW?

    The way the laws are worded I'm under the impression that at 18 one can buy handgun (but apparently cannot rent), but can only conceal when I'm 21.

    "NRS 202.310 Sale of firearms to minors; penalty. Any person in this state who sells or barters to a child who is under the age of 18 years, with reckless disregard of whether the child is under the age of 18 years, or with knowledge or reason to know that the child is under the age of 18 years, a pistol, revolver or a firearm capable of being concealed upon the person is guilty of a category B felony and shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for a minimum term of not less than 1 year and a maximum term of not more than 6 years, and may be further punished by a fine of not more than $5,000."

    Welcome from central Mississippi.

    I think you can buy from an individual, but not a dealer. An FFL can only sell to you when you are 21 or older. Same rule would apply to rentals.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.
