In a couple of weks I'll be going to Vegas for my step-son's wedding. I'll be staying at a hotel on the strip. I've read up on handgunlaws.us. Any one who has been there or live there have any info or recommendations for me. Any input is appreciated.

Cant help ya man. The only way that Id go to Vegas was if someone was to hold a gun to my head. And I think Id rather be shot than have to go there.

your post is vague, do you have ccw, carrying concealed, are you driving/flying, does your state reciprocate with nv on ccw permits.

read the nevada laws regarding firearms.

I am driving. I have a Missouri CCW, which is recognized by Nevada; and all states that I will be driving through. I have read the Nevada laws. I'm most interested about being able to take pistol to casino hotel room and restaurants. I'm assuming that like, Missouri, no carry in casino gambling areas.

FYI. Returned from Vegas. Visited four or five casinos on the strip. Did not see any signs prohibiting carry. The only place that prevented one from carry that I visited was the tower at the Stratosphere. There was an officer and a metal detector. I took my gun back to the safe in my room without asking. When I went through the checkpoint they kept my pocket knife till I returned from the observation deck.

i've read that even if your ccw pistol simply prints through your jacket that's considered "brandishing", and is a felony. basically if anyone can tell you have a gun, it's a felony.

no first hand knowledge, as i have never been to vegas (nor do i care to).

I subscribe to concealed means concealed.

That would have to depend on the state and sate laws. We don't even have a brandishing law in GA.

I was there in June. No carry in Casino. North strip has stricter laws, You need to check if your state has agreement with Nevada. Most hotels are attached to the Casino, from what I have heard it is not worth taking the risk. We unloaded in the parking garage in car and carried to the room in duffle bags or range bags. Check out handgunlaw.us
or you can search Vegas ccw for some interesting events that have happened there recently.

Good luck

I've checked handgunlaws and Nevada laws and could not find anything that says you can't carry in casinos. As far as Clark County laws about CCW I found some posts that said they now abide State CCW laws. My CCW is good in NV.

Hi DEM,
I believe I was given an info sheet from when I took a class there, that said no go in the casino's. I checked the Nevada Laws and asked some people on another forum. The answer appears to be YES. If it is not posted. If you are made, they will ask you to leave, if you do it's over.
If you don't you will have Metro respond and you will be charged with trespassing, if you are lucky.

There is a recent incident where a West Point Grad Army Capt., was made in a store and a 911 call ,man with a gun, Officers responded and the young Capt. was killed as he left the store. Legal CCW with his girlfriend, non threatening and co-operative. It is still under investigation, you can Google it. I guess the short answer is Concealed is Concealed and as long as you are not spotted you should be fine. Hope this helps.

jpl1,
That is exactly what I ascertained from my research before I left on my trip. I also saw posts about the gentleman at a Kosco store; the general concensus was that he should of left the store when he was asked to. Thanks for affirmation of my conclusions.
