I am headed to Las Vegas next weekend to get a Nevada ccw since my Utah and Florida permits will no longer be recognized. I wanted to know if anyone has gone through the training in Las Vegas and what their experience was?

Where are you going to get your training done?

Here is a list of decent places to get the CCW training.
American Shooters (http://www.americanshooters.com/training/#Concealed) does the CCW class and is an airconditioned indoor course and range. ($80 for course + $10 per gun you want to qualify with)
The Gun Store (http://www.thegunstorelasvegas.com/concealedfirearmsclasses.html) does the CCW class and is an airconditioned indoor course and range. ($75 for course + $25 per gun you want to qualify with)
Team Digit (http://www.teamdigit.com/Home_Page.php) (private instructor) does individual or small group training. Will do instructional course at where ever, but outdoor range qualification. ($90-160 depending on group size, $1 per gun you want to qualify with)[/QUOTE]


I've gone through it the training twice and going though it my third time end of this month.

The LVMPD CCW Detail is only open Mon-Fri 0800-1500 hours.
So, if you do the training over the weekend, you'll have to wait until Monday to turn it in.
So, I do the training during the week to make it a 2 day affair.
Day 1 = CCW training
Day 2 = Turning in application, fingerprinting, picture day with LVMPD

First time, I went through it was in 2003.
It was a three day affair.
Day 1 = register handguns with LVMPD (in and out under 10 mins at LVMPD SouthEast substation)
Day 2 = CCW training
Day 3 = application/fingerprint/picture day with LVMPD (stuck in hell for over 4 hours. old LVMPD downtown building sucks)

Second time, I went through it was in 2006.
It was a two day affair.
Day 1 = CCW training
Day 2 = application/fingerprint/picture day with LVMPD (in and out under 30 mins. YAY! for new LVMPD building)

You need to qualify with each pistol you want listed on your permit.
However, if you qualify with a revolver, you are good to carry any revolver.
There is no limit to the amount of handguns you can have listed on your permit.
However, the different CCW trainers charge different amounts of $$$ to qualify with additional handguns.

Starting in 01-01-2008, non-residents no longer had to register their handguns with LVMPD in order to have them listed on their permits.
