View Full Version : Trasporting weapons through different states
11-29-2005, 7:52 PM
I'm gonna go to Las Vegas for 3 or 4 days and stop by Bass Pro, and last time i went there was an indoor shooting range and the employee there sais i could bring me own gu n and shoot it. So my question is that can you transport guns from kali to nevada because the employee also said it's illegal to own a gun in nevada :confused: Any info would be great
I was in Reno a couple of weeks ago and there were like four gun stores in that little city. I guess it is legal to sell but not to buy.;)
I'm guessing he was trying to say that CA rezidents may not buy/own firearms while in NV?

This is why is it so important to have a good grasp of the English language.
The problem is that one of you didn't articulate well enough to make the other understand what was being said. It always helps to ask questions from the person you are talking to in order to get a clear understanding.
I'm sure that what the employee really meant was that you can not buy a gun in Nevada without shipping to a FFL in Kalifornia.
You certainly can buy a gun in Nevada, but it must be sent to a local FFL to be DROS's in the state of Kalifornia, provided that, if it is a handgun, it must be on the Kali safe handguns list. Either handgun or long gun must be shipped to a local FFL that they have on file. You then must go to the local FFL's place to do the DROS, pay the fees, and after 10 days, you can take it home.
It could also be that this particular employee just doesn't know ***** about gun laws and showed it. In either case he was wrong. ;)

Put it in this way.....
I've already owned a Busmaster AR15 in Kalifornia
(of course,I've bought it before it banned).
Can I drive to Reno with my AR in the trunk,
and shoot my AR in a Reno shooting range?

Well, if you also registered it specially as an assault weapon on or before 12/31/2000 (actually, 1/23/2001 but that's a long story) then it is still legal for you to possess in CA.
You are free to transport it in & out of CA, including with any hicap mags you legally owned in CA before 12/31/1999.
In CA, AWs should be transported in a locked case (trunk counts) between specific, authorized destinations (your home, shooting range, going anywhere out of state, etc.)

Here is a site that lists helpful links in air tranport of firearms.
here is a local Nevada gun law summary, I especially like the section on Canada.
"Canada Targets Nevada Residents"
" If you plan on visiting any part of Canada, be sure to be aware of their new gun laws. You cannot bring any firearm into Canada without declaring it and paying a C$50.00 fee for a permit. If you have Nevada plates on your vehicle you get treated to a special search of your vehicle that takes quite a while because the custom agents have been told that residents from Nevada are all to be suspected of carrying concealed guns. This also applies to a few other states, but not to California because the Canadian government knows they are more civilized (read - more Socialistic). This on top of filling out, in triplicate, a long form. We recommend that all members and their friends avoid Canada until further notice. ":D

Thanks for you guys responses.
A further question….
When I go to Reno for a few days with my CA. AW-registered AR15,
should I keep my AR in hotel room or lock it in the trunk.
