Nevada: Updated List of Recognized Concealed Carry Permits

Courtesy of the NRA-ILA:

Yesterday, the Nevada Department of Public Safety added Mississippi’s Enhanced permit to the list of out-out-state carry permits which are now recognized in Nevada. As previously reported, this expansion is a result of Senate Bill 175 which passed the Legislature and was signed into law by Governor Sandoval on June 2, 2015. The State of Nevada will now recognize concealed weapons permits from the following states:

  • Alaska
  • Arizona
  • Arkansas
  • Delaware
  • Idaho (both types of permits)
  • Illinois
  • Kansas
  • Kentucky
  • Louisiana
  • Minnesota
  • Mississippi Enhanced permits
  • Montana
  • Nebraska
  • North Carolina
  • North Dakota (both types of permits)
  • Ohio
  • Oklahoma
  • Rhode Island
  • South Carolina
  • Tennessee
  • West Virginia
  • Wisconsin
  • Wyoming

    I see Oregon is not on the list. I thought it was at 1 time. Oregon dose not reciprocate WITH ANYONE !

    NEVADA IS AN OPEN CARRY STATE. Last time I took a trip, I had to change where my gun was 5 times! concealed, open, or locked in my trunk.

    No USA State should be allowed to deny proper gun ownership laws and permits to carry.It should be uniform law as provided by our Constitution with enforcement of current Federal laws. The ban laws are totally ineffective to make any one person safer than before the ban laws and has been proven so many times its redundant. When we were drafted and sworn in the Military it was for ALL STATES and TERRITORY of defense for the USA. We were not permitted to omit any state we would not swear to protect!

    Here in Mississippi, we have a two-tier concealed carry permit system:
    – constitutional carry, a “shall issue” permit to anyone who submits fingerprints, passes a background check, and pays the license fee and a fingerprinting fee, and whose holders can’t carry in bars, churches, schools or places placarded ‘no firearms,’ ‘places of nuisance’ (basically, low dives where people to go to find hookers and drugs), airport lobbies, courthouses, police stations, schools and colleges, athletic events except those involving firearms, churches, parades and any place where concealed carry violates Federal law..
    – enhanced concealed carry. for which applicants must successfully complete a course in firearms law and safety and demonstrate safe gun handling skills; this permit allows carry into states such as Nevada which recognize this permit’s reciprocity with their own permitting procedures, most bars (but not ‘places of nuisance’), airport lobbies, athletic events, parades, and churches, unlike the basic carry permit. The other restrictions in the basic concealed carry permit apply.

    Mississippi has one of the lowest charges for concealed carry permits I know of: 112 dollars covers the basic permit fee and fingerprint charge. The classes for enhanced concealed carry range from 100-200 dollars, depending on the instructor, then you get a sticker added to your basic concealed carry permit..

    Add to that that we’re an ‘open carry’ state (and yet our gutters are not as full of blood as those of heavily gun-controlled New Orleans next door) and it’s plain to see the Second Amendment means what it says here.

    Pennsylvania is not on the list. I guess our state gives CC permits too easily.

      It appears Pennsylvania is going the way of New York and most of the Northeast.

    Sadly, Oregonians are still not recognized because our state government is retarded, and refuses to service their citizens with reciprocity with any other state. I can only hope that one day they will serve their public. But until then, we have to bear the cost of registering for CHL’s in other states.
