Nevada Senate Bill 237

This is old news for some, but I was recently reminded that Nevada passed SB237, a revision to their current regulations to carry a conceal handgun. The primary change is the policy regarding reciprocity from other states. As of October 1st 2007, Nevada will construct a list of states they will honor CCW permits from. Rumor has it that Nevada will honor the Utah permit!

What does this mean for the Californians who frequently travel to Nevada? It may open up the opportunity to carry in Nevada with a Utah CCW. Though I would recommend a CCW class regardless of any requirements, Utah’s permit doesn’t have such a requirement and only involves class instruction. In comparison, the Nevada CCW permit requires one to take the class and pass a live fire qualification within the state. Furthermore, the Utah CCW permit is recognized by 27 states whereas the Nevada permit is only valid in 14 states.

Nevada: AK, AZ, ID, IN, KY, MI*, MO, MT, OK, SD, TN, TX, UT, VT

Utah: AL, AK, AZ, AR, CO, DE, FL*, GA, ID, IN, KY, LA, MI*, MN, MS, MO, MT, NH*, NM, NC, ND, OH, OK, SD, TN, TX, VT, VA, WA, WY

* Denotes that only permits issued by your state of legal residence are accepted.

While it’s not a formal reciprocity between Utah and Nevada, the rumored recognition of the Utah CCW permit will be honored.
