There has been another change in the Nevada gun law regarding Concealed Carry Weapons permits and Brady/background checks needed when additional firearms are purchased.

“The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) has reviewed Nevada’s Concealed Firearm Permit and has determined that the concealed firearm permit qualifies as an alternative to the background check required by the Brady law. Please be advised that only permits issued on or after July 1, 2011 qualify as alternatives to the background check. If an unlicensed person presents a permit issued prior to July 1, 2011, the FFL must conduct a background check prior to transferring the firearm.”

There has been a change in the CCW requirements regarding qualifying with semi-automatic weapons. Please see below for the official info:

“Effective July 1, 2011, Nevada CCW permit holders and applicants will no longer have to list and qualify with each semi-auto firearm on their permits/applications.”

“Citizens who are already in possession of a valid Nevada CCW permit that have at least one semi-auto firearm and/or one revolver already listed on their permit will be able to carry concealed ANY semi-auto firearm even if it is not listed by make/model on their current permit, and/or ANY revolver, if authorized, after this effective date of July 1, 2011.”

“In addition, after July 1, 2011 the LVMPD CCW Detail will no longer process “add on's” to a current CCW permit if the citizen already has at least one revolver and/or semi-auto listed.”

“In the event a citizen wants to add either “revolvers authorized or semi-autos authorized” to their current permit, it will still be a charge of $25.00, cashier's check or money order, along with the proper qualification form signed by an instructor.”
