I will be applying for mine later in december or January, However I have a few questions, as I am still a bit lost on the laws.

Is the CCW Holder anonymous? I do not want this information to be public record.

Fingerprints/Photos, Required?

Sorry, not 100% on the law.

I have my Nevada non-resident CCW permit and the the permit processing office does take your fingerprints and your picture is on your permit. I can not recall if it is a matter of public record, but I'm going to guess, NO.

My Utah permit actually had a piece of paper for me to keep saying that the state of Utah will not release any of your records to nobody, unless it's in the course of an investigation. Utah is all about your privacy and individual rights.

I've had a LVMPD issued NV CFP for over 9 years now.

Prior to 2011, info was public record.
NV passed a new law in 2011 that now makes it confidential. [NRS 202.3662]
New law was in response to a newspaper outing permit holders.

Fingerprints (live scan) & photo are required. [NRS 202.3657]
The issuing agency takes them when you turn in your application.

A permit must list each category of firearm to which the permit pertains and is valid for any revolver or semiautomatic firearm which is owned or thereafter obtained by the person to whom the permit is issued.
3. Except as otherwise provided in this section, the sheriff shall issue a permit for revolvers, semiautomatic firearms or both, as applicable, to any person who is qualified to possess the firearms to which the application pertains under state and federal law, who submits an application in accordance with the provisions of this section and who:

- Such a course must include instruction in the use of revolvers, semiautomatic firearms or both, as applicable, and in the laws of this State relating to the use of a firearm. A sheriff may not approve a course in firearm safety pursuant to subparagraph (1) unless the sheriff determines that the course meets any standards that are established by the Nevada Sheriffs’ and Chiefs’ Association or, if the Nevada Sheriffs’ and Chiefs’ Association ceases to exist, its legal successor.
4. The sheriff shall deny an application or revoke a permit if the sheriff determines that the applicant or permittee:

(2) Suspension of sentence for the conviction of a felony.
(j) Has made a false statement on any application for a permit or for the renewal of a permit.

The sheriff may deny an application or revoke a permit if the sheriff receives a sworn affidavit stating articulable facts based upon personal knowledge from any natural person who is 18 years of age or older that the applicant or permittee has or may have committed an offense or engaged in any other activity specified in subsection 4 which would preclude the issuance of a permit to the applicant or require the revocation of a permit pursuant to this section.
6. If the sheriff receives notification submitted by a court or law enforcement agency of this or any other state, the United States or a territory or possession of the United States that a permittee or an applicant for a permit has been charged with a crime involving the use or threatened use of force or violence, the conviction for which would require the revocation of a permit or preclude the issuance of a permit to the applicant pursuant to this section, the sheriff shall suspend the person’s permit or the processing of the person’s application until the final disposition of the charges against the person.

Reciprocity in NV for AZ permit holders is a welcome and relatively recent development. As an added benefit, you can get an Arizona permit without travelling out of CA. But for Nevada (at least for Las Vegas/Clark County) you have to go there and be photographed and live scanned at the Metro fingerprint bureau, AFAIK.

The problem with that is, because the OP lives in NV, per NV law [NRS 202.3688], he must have a NV CFP in order to legally conceal carry in NV.

NV residents can not legally conceal carry in NV using a permit from another state that NV honors. They must have a NV permit in order to legally conceal carry in NV.


Nevada Revised Statue 202.3688
1. Except as otherwise provided in subsection 2, a person who possesses a permit to carry a concealed firearm that was issued by a state included in the list prepared pursuant to NRS 202.3689 may carry a concealed firearm in this State in accordance with the requirements set forth in NRS 202.3653 to 202.369, inclusive.
2. A person who possesses a permit to carry a concealed firearm that was issued by a state included in the list prepared pursuant to NRS 202.3689 may not carry a concealed firearm in this State if the person:
(a) Becomes a resident of this State; and
(b) Has not been issued a permit from the sheriff of the county in which he or she resides within 60 days after becoming a resident of this State.
3. A person who carries a concealed firearm pursuant to this section is subject to the same legal restrictions and requirements imposed upon a person who has been issued a permit by a sheriff in this State.
