Default Moving to Henderson, NV

So I had been considering moving to Phoenix but have decided to go to Henderson instead in late July.

As a current California resident and gun owner, I would like to know the steps I need to take to keep everything legal when I make the move. If someone lives in Henderson or Clark County or has moved there, please shoot me a PM.

In the meantime, I have a few questions:

1) When I arrive, should I apply for a driver's license first, or should I register my handgun first?

2) Is there any firearm, accessory, or ammunition legal in California that is illegal in Nevada?

3) If I obtain my Nevada CCW before moving there, will it still be valid once I make the move?

4) Do private party transfers in Nevada require going through an FFL or any other form of paperwork or waiting period?

Thank you!

Arriving in Henderson in July! Good plan. Never mind the pistol. Ask a friend or neighbor to turn on the AC for you a week before you get there. (lol)

And yeah it'll be hot but I don't mind the dry heat as much as most folks. At any rate it likely won't be too much worse than Phoenix, which was the other place I was looking at.
But can anyone help me with answers to those questions?

After being a resident for 60 days in Henderson, you have to register your handguns.

The North Las Vegas handgun prohibition sounds severe; no idea if it is enforced.

With LTC, unlike in California, you can't carry in airports and schools.

1. Get a NV DL first. After you establish residency in Clark County NV, you have 72 hours to register your handguns.

2. No.

3. Yes. However, after you establish residency in NV, you must notify them of your new address within 30 days of moving. Depending on the issuing agency, this may involve paying a fee to get a new permit with your NV address on it. Also, a resident (NV address on it) NV CFP issued after 07-01-2011 is exempt from the $25 NCIS check/fee. So, you may want to get your permit after you move to NV.

4. Private party transfers between NV residents do not require the use of a NV FFL dealer.
However, as a resident of Clark County, any handguns you acquire need to be registered within 72 hours of being acquiring them.

Are there any firearms that are an issue in Clark County???

Yes- pocket knives. I had a friend with a Nevada CCW almost get arrested as he had a folder on him.

Research the local knife laws if you carry a fixed or folding blade.

Henderson's a nice town. The Pepcon explosion took place in the desert near Henderson - worth a look on YouTube. I remember it well, had a hangover and that didn't help.

It's been a while since I lived there. Clark County has some sort of handgun sale card or registration card to complete during or after the sale. I recall walking into Metro's office holding a Model 27 - they were very attentive.

I would get the DL first. You should check the NV DMV and find out what they need so you can get the NDL - it may not be as simple as turning in your CDL, NV may not even take the CDL as a form of ID.

I would say that if you get a non-res NV CCW that once you become a resident the license no longer applies. At the least, your address info will be outdated and I can't see a non-res permit being issued to a person with a Henderson address.

I can't think of anything legal here that is illegal there. I don't know if the pawn shops still sell guns, but when I lived there they were by far the best place to buy used guns.

I hope you have a sense of self control. Being a gun owner, going from CA to NV is like going from a convent to strip club.

I'm also moving back to Henderson late this Spring. We lived there from 2004-06 and really liked it. We own a house in Anthem and are looking forward to returning.

There are no firearms that are an issue in Clark County.

NV laws, like CA laws, prohibits the possession of switchblades, blackjacks, slungshots, billys and metal knuckles.

NV laws, like CA laws, prohibits the conceal carry of knives.
Clark County Ordinances prohibits the conceal carry of knives with a blade length of 3" or greater.
Unlike CA laws, this prohibition also includes folding knives that are folded closed.
However, as long as part of the knife is visible (like a pocket clip) than it is not considered "concealed".

Henderson is great. My buddy moved there and within weeks had bought his first CLASS 3 weapons. And the heat is only in the summer -- in the winter it's COLD -- it's the desert. And once you get your "blue card" you can walk out of the guns store with your handgun the day you buy it. F Kaliforniacation!

#2 - NO.

#3 - YES, Nev CCW is good for five years, CA resident or not.

And congrats on the move, I'm just a bit jealous.

This would seriously be my dream come true, but unfortunately, my family business shackles me to this God forsaken communist s@!t hole of a state.

Out of curiosity, what will you do for a living? What are job prospects like out there?

I work in research right now but will be starting medical school in the Fall. Not sure what the job prospects are in other fields but Nevada suffers from a severe physician shortage.

Spent 6 years living in Henderson while stationed at Nellis AFB. Would not mind moving back but it was more expensive to live there than here. Maybe that has changed in the nearly 7 years I have been living here.

Best of luck out there!

I actually just moved to Henderson 2 months ago.

1. Apply for a drivers license first you can use this to buy firearms ASAP! You have 30 days to register handguns. Just take them unloaded to a police department to get a blue card.

2. Nothing legal in ca is illegal here. Remove your bullet buttons! 8D

3. Wait until you have your license for ccw.y you can take your ccw class though.

4. No ffl needed here just use a bill of sale!

When you move out there get involved in the pro-gun movements in NV.

The anti-gun movement is trying to make NV into CA and they are experiencing some success in Clark County ("SoCal East").

Just to illustrate this point ....

When I lived there one of the local celebrities was a fellow named Ben Stepman - a Cal Worthington type, always on TV promoting Henderson (his tag line was "in Henderson, of course ...") and whatever dealership he happened to own at the time. I just pulled up a yellow pages advert on him and included in it is a link to "support Gabby Giffords & Mark Kelly's efforts to end gun violence". Just because it's NV doesn't mean the other side leaves us alone.

I recently moved back to California after living in Henderson for 7 years and I wanted to add to this thread. (All this is AFAIK)

Ah, the Clark County Blue Card. One of the few places in the USA where you have to register your handguns after you purchase them (of course, when you buy a handgun from a dealer in Clark County they can issue you the blue card then and there).

My problem with the blue card is I have never read of a criminal being convicted of not registering their handgun with Metro. My guess is that the DA drops the blue card violations when the bad guys plead to whatever other charges they may be facing. There has been talk for years of plans to eliminate handgun registration in Clark County but it always seems to stall in Carson City. Anyway, I'll shut up about that.

AFAIK, once you register your handgun(s), you do not have to update your address if you move within Clark County. CCW holders, of course, must keep their address current with Metro.

Speaking of CCW's, The Gun Store on Tropicana offers free CCW classes three times a week. This offer is open to residents or visitors. The class takes a day. You will need to qualify with the type of weapon you want to carry, e.g. semi or revolver or both. I've purchased from them and taken their class, decent people. (Edited to add: they charge for ammo used for the CCW)

Enjoy the sunshine, I may end up moving back there! Closing with a link to Metro's gun registration page (the CCW link is on the left on this page too)

LV Metro handgun registration page

(P.S. For Pawn shops, check Bargain Pawn on Vegas Blvd)
