So things here in California arenít going well for me, so I am moving out to Nevada more specifically vegas for work, which is in clark county, And you have to register handguns there. My question is, if anyone knows, I was thinking of taking a few of the handguns my father has. So when I get settled in and want my CCW I have the gun I want right then and there if he has them and I want to move out of state with them is there anything I have to do? I would probably pick them up on the drive down there. And then when I get to vegas I have to register them with the police. I wasnít sure if he would have had them registered since he hasnít bought any since the í90s if they are registered to him and I try and register them in vegas what would end up happening? I am moving with in the next two weeks so any help would be greatly appreciated. He has a few that are childhood memories that I would like to keep that he wants me to have. And I would not be able to buy a handgun out there for a while so this is the quick and easy way. Or at least I hope so.
Thanks in advance.

Well if you're moving there you should really learn how to spell it... Vegas

It still isn't perfect. (completely) I don't know what it is about misspelling, maybe like a cute chick with a booger hanging, you just can't think about anything else.

Anyway, if your dad lives in Cali he can give them to you and you send $19 per gun with a form to the DOJ and they are yours. At that point when you move to Nevada they are already yours and you can jump through their hoops.

Just bring the guns and register when you get a chance. It's no big deal here. You take them, cased and unloaded to the nearest police substation, and walk out 15 minutes later with your "blue" cards.

You'll need the blue cards for your CCW, which you may apply for immediately. It's shall issue, so unless you are a prohibited person, you'll be approved after taking the course.

By the way, you may transport it loaded, anywhere in your car, but NOT ON YOUR PERSON even prior to your CCW issuance. You may also carry loaded openly (visible) but avoid the strip or major tourist areas so you don't encounter a temporary LE delay.

Welcome to civilized gun country, come on in the water's fine!

"Guys I need advice; I'm going to a less restrictive state!!!" :D

If you're this concerned over something so innocent and trivial, you'll be like a kid in a candy store when you really learn what living in a RKBA state is like.

Seriously, this kind of post has got to be a first.

Wow, guys. All these responses crying about the spelling and grammar, but only two people answered his questions?

I'm debating whether to delete a bunch of posts or leave them up so that you'll have something to feel stupid about.

After becoming a resident of Clark County, you have 72 hours to register any handgun you own/possess within the county.

So, after you get your NV DL, you have 3 days to register any handguns you have with you.

CA and NV does not share firearm registration information.

You can register your handguns there immediately. Clark County will write up blue cards for anyone, resident or not. If you stay in the county longer than 60 days, regardless of any intent to stay permanently, you are required by law to register any handguns in your possession anyway.

i was looking at the laws and i think i am truly going to enjoy my stay. just to be clear before i have a CCW i can have the gun loaded in my car anyplace just not on me? and for the loaded open carry how much of a hassle is it to walk the strip like that? i don't mind talking to police to clear things up. just wondering.

thats cool, i just didn't want any problems with them, the delta elite is my baby.

alright good to know, so basicly 60 days or 3 days after i have a NV DL i have to register them?

as far as driving down there i should be alright even though the guns are probably registered to noone? i will probably drop by and register them when i get in vegas or the next day before work.

also anyone know if there is a ver. of calguns for NV?

Yes, you can have your HANDGUNS (without CCW) loaded anywhere in your car except on your person. A rifle is a different story, you can have a loaded magazine in your rifle BUT NOT in a position to fire (no round in the chamber) in your vehicle.

Once you become a resident, you have 3 days to register your guns.

Calguns version for NV is Nevada Shooters (http://www.nevadashooters.com/).

Trust me, you DO NOT want to be open carrying on The Strip, Metro will have you *** on the ground in 110 degree weather in an instant. Scalding hot cement will make you think twice (albeit legal to do so) about open carrying near any tourist attractions.

CCW takes about 30 days to process (or you can drive to Lincoln County for much faster results) and requires taking an all-day course plus qualification on each gun you are going to carry.

I'm a Vegas native, although nice to visit, the place is terrible in terms of people and population. I would never move back there, IMHO.

On a side note, funny most CG's corrected the grammar when 90% of folks on the forum cannot use punctuation correctly when using "quotation marks."

and for the loaded open carry how much of a hassle is it to walk the strip like that? i don't mind talking to police to clear things up. just wondering.

Even though open carry is legal in NV.

It is highly recommend that you do not open carry in parts of Las Vegas where all the tourists are at (ie. the Strip, Fremont St., malls, casinos, etc.).

If you do you will have a meeting with Vegas Metro and depending on your attitude it can be a 10 min stop to a 2 hour detention.

Why no open carry where the tourists be at? Because, some of those tourists come from other countries and some of those countries do not allow their subjects to legally own firearms. So, those tourists will call the cops with a "man with a gun" call.
Scared tourists equates to no spending money, which equates to the casinos not being happy. They in turn express their displeasure with the mayor & other politicans, which in turn express their displeasure to the Sheriff of Clark County, who in turn makes LVMPD policy.

Register guns? Never heard of that around here! Can own just about anything with no restrictions. No problem getting a CCW here either. Must just be Clark County.Think I'll go to the range today and fire my AK-47!:confused:

yeah i get it, thats kind of what i thought. i probably wouldn't open carry anyway not really my thing i would rather wait and just get the CCW and do it that way. so how many places actualy say no guns or CCW in there place of buisness. i assume the casinos and all the things on the stip and major places like that don't really care for it, and probably have signs posted?


also i would like to know about if i have to waist my money and time to register those guns to me for a 9 hour drive from elkgrove to vegas. i won't even be around long enough to get the notice from them. isn't there some thing of i can borrow my fathers guns for like 30 days with out i needing to have them in my name here? i mean granted i wouldn't even let cops search the car or even get pulled over but i still like following the law.

The handgun registration IS just Clark County. It was grandfathered at the point where the State pre-empted these restrictions:
North Las Vegas, Henderson, and Boulder City have different laws when it comes to carrying loaded guns in the passenger compartment of the vehicle.

So those are unenforceable, per state law

i would rather wait and just get the CCW and do it that way.
Good decision.

Make sure you drive the speed limit, your car registration is current, and all your stop lamps, etc. work, and for God's sake, don't get in an accident, if you are incapacitated, they will tow your car and inventory the contents. Better yet, have dad ride along if he can. They're his guns after all, then they're yours after you register them here.

I have nothing to add other than I am quite jealous. I wouldn't quite choose Vegas but you are getting free, nonetheless.

I grew up in Las Vegas. LV has a lot going for it... but the weather isn't on that list in my opinion. :p

I hate the extreme heat here with a passion, but on either side of mid-June-July and August or mid-September, there's a whole lot of nice weather.

June has even been extremely pleasant with most days topping out in the high 90s.

We were in Las Vegas in early April and the weather was great, around 75 degrees, crystal clear skies with no smog, with a great view of the snow capped Spring mountains.Will not go near the place in the summer!
