I'm moving to NV as well. Hopefully within a year. I talked to several different gun shops about buying guns after I move and they said "just bring in your ID". I assume you are in the Reno area. Go to Bizarre Guns. Real cool people.

Yes, NV people are alot more laid back, and simple. That's the reason I want to move.

If you don't mind me asking, what town did you move to, and what industry are you in? I'm weighing my options as we speak. I have property near Winnemucca, but there's not much in the way of good paying jobs there.

It's 90 days for state residency.

The 90 days for State residency requirement does not apply to U.S. citizens.

I'm wondering if the OP brought up the subject that he was from California first and then the Dealers just got confused. Why would they even mention residency if you have a Nevada ID?


The first time I went to Nevada with my C&R FFL, I asked every Dealer, "Will you sell me this C&R firearm since I have a C&R FFL?" and 90% of them said, "Ummmm.......NO!"

The second time I went to Nevada with my C&R FFL, I told every Dealer, "I'll take this gun! And I have an FFL." and 90% of them said, "that will be $xxx.xx"

American Shooters told me that along with other lies when I moved here long ago; as a consequence I have never purchased anything from that S**thole. I did, however, go to a real gunstore and bought myself a pistol later that day.

All you need is you Nevada ID. If you got that your good to go.

You native California guys are always so freaked out when you go to a "free" State. Just go in say I want this or that, fill out the Federal Form, wait the lousy 2 minutes to get a reply, pay and walk out with the gun. If you have bought one in California before, you'll be in the system and you'll be approved instantly. At most they'll want to photocopy your ID.

If you go in there blabbing about hey I just moved here, can I get a gun? In California we need blah blah blah. Then you invite scrutiny.

If you have your Nevada ID(DL or ID card) you can go get a gun.

We won't ask you to "get into it", but please stop spreading this "90 days for State residency" BS. This isn't the first time you've done it here either.

You can "get into it" and post the relevant law to back it up, as you've been asked to in the past, or you can stop posting nonsense.

Either way is fine.

The Feds have no 90 day requirement for U.S. citizens, and Nevada has no 31 day requirement for residency. Nevada does require 30 or 31 days of residency before you can vote, but by definition you are already a resident during that waiting period.

Im not sure who told me this, but I think it was a Nevada CCW instructor, but is it true that when you buy a gun for the first time in Nevada that there is a 72 hour waiting period? ... To Clarify, im not saying your first Nevada purchase, but maybe your first ever gun purchase (in the DOJ system)?

I believe what the instructor is referring to is the "Blue Card" program in Clark County....

NO. In Nevada, you buy your handgun, rifle, or shotgun and walk out the door. ONLY in Clark County - you must wait 72 hours to take possession of your 1st handgun purchase. You will be given a blue card along with the handgun. For all subsequent purchases, you present your blue card and you can take immediate possession along with a blue card for your new purchase.

Stupid, stupid regulation...

Thanks for the clarification. The instructor was off-duty LVMPD and didnt say that it was only Clark County.

When I was a kid getting my first hunting license I remember you had to be a resident of 90 days to get a resident license.

The actual statutes for the Nevada STATE firearms laws are available here:
http://www.leg.state.nv.us/NRS/NRS-202.html

These don't include the Clark County BS rules.

Also, be careful of stuff on some web sites with gun law info - I have found a lot of it to be out of date, or just plain wrong. One has it that Nevada does not recognize "out of state CCW permits."

Since you moved to NV. I would assume that you are also employed in that state and If you drive in NV or any state; that state WILL require you to have a DL in the state that you reside. Proof of residency for at least 90 days?? never heard of such a requirement. 1 utility bill and a proof that you are employed in NV will get you a DL. If you bought a house there, even better show them your mortgage papers. Reno/ Sparks area are cash and carry counties, Clark county 3 day waiting period for the 1st handgun and you get a blue card then the subsequent purchases will be cash and carry as well. Buying guns in NV is streamline = 5 min background check, pay up and pick up your gun same day. BTW Sig PRO 2022 9mm version is on sale at Cabelas for a ridiculous price of $499. WOW!!!!!:eek:

I found out its company policy in different stores. Cabelas wouldnt sell to me without proof of 90 day but Scheels had no problem with it.I have a complete Armalite coming my way in March.

Alright, here's what you do.

When you move there (Vegas), make sure you bring any handgun that you already own. First thing to do is go to the nearest LVMPD and register the handgun (they'll give you a "Blue "Card"). From there, go to the DMV and turn in your CA DL or I'd and get a NV DL/ID. From there, you can buy whatever legal gun you want. You don't need to wait the 72hr for a handgun since you registered that handgun I told you about earlier.

Easy, isn't it? And background checks only take 15 min and you can be at the range with your new toy 10 min later. Do a search on LV gunshops. My favorites are Discount Firearms, Henderson Defense and Black Rifle Armory. All great guys. Good luck!!

For good reason I'm not getting into it, you can see that several others have posted the same experience in their NV purchase attempts of retail firearms...

... While others haven't.

I'll leave it at that and be perfectly willing to stand aside and just watch what happens to people. Don't worry, probably nothing will ever ever come of it.

Do not worry friend. In but a half-score years from this next new moon, a child will be born. He shall be the chosen one, and shall replace you as the Keeper of Nevada Gun Law FUD. Your secret burden will be lifted.

All you need is an ID (Nevada or surrounding state other than California) and some cash. Then you carry out the store. (Unless you are in crooked Clark County, then you need a silly blue card.)

I never hear of any wait for anything the 5 years I lived there, except it took 120 days to get ccw.
