Question Visiting vegas Where to Shoot?

I'm going to be in Las Vegas, NV for a while anyone know any good spots to shoot? I also was told that even though I'm certified by the NRA for Basic Pistol and as a Basic Pistol instructor i have to take a class inside NV state lines to get my NV non resident CCW can some one shed some light on this?

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department - Concealed Firearms Permit

(you need to take a firearms course in Clark County if you want to carry in Vegas)

Go to North LV, there are a # of idiots there trying to shoot each other every night.

In reality, some parts of Clark County can be hazardous to your health.

There's a range in boulder city, american shooters, and if you want to spend alot of $$$ goto the gun store. You can rent full auto stuff. Plus they can help you with the classes. Got my chp through them.

The class is 9 hours.
Not sure why, but the class at The Gun Store is free.

THE GUN STORE | CLASSES

The Gun Store presents the required class three times a week, every MONDAY, WEDNESDAY and SATURDAY. The class runs 9 hours, including a lunch break. The class starts at 9 AM and ends at approximately 6PM. We ask that students arrive 15 minutes early to allow for parking and paperwork prior to the class beginning. We do accept walk-ins on a space available basis; but, if possible, please call ahead to reserve your class date: (702) 454-1110.

NEVADA LAW

Nevada is a “Shall Issue” state meaning that if a person with a clean criminal history successfully completes the approved classroom training and appropriate firearms qualification, the Sheriff will issue a permit. Nevada Concealed Firearm Permits are valid for a period of five years from the date of issue and are issued to residents of any state. Permit renewal requires a shorter refresher class, a shooting re-qualification and application to the Sheriff for the renewal. Completed application and proof of class & qualification must be presented to the Sheriff in person.

SHOOTING QUALIFICATIONS

You may qualify with one revolver, which allows carry of any revolver. You must however qualify with each specific semi-automatic firearm you wish to carry. Nevada has no limit on the number of guns listed on your permit.

CLASS COST

The class is FREE and includes qualification with 1 firearm. Each additional firearm costs $25. The 5 hour renewal class is FREE as well with each additional firearm costing $25. Permit applications for Utah and Florida are included at no cost if you wish to apply to those states concurrently.

CLASS PARKING

Please park your vehicle in one of the lots to the rear of the store in order to leave our front parking lot for the “in & out” customers.

LVMPD FEES AND PROCESSING

LVMPD charges $100.25 to process a permit application and fingerprint cards. Their processing may take up to 120 days. Your permit will be mailed to you.

QUALIFICATION COURSE

The qualification course consists of 36 rounds fired on a B-27 full sized target.

AT 3 YARDS:
6 rounds right hand only, reload, 6 rounds left hand only, 60 second time limit
AT 7 YARDS:
12 rounds freestyle (two hands) (fire 6, reload, fire 6), 60 second time limit
AT 15 YARDS:
12 rounds freestyle (two hands) (fire 6, reload, fire 6), 60 second time limit


70% (252 POINTS OF 360) IS THE PASSING SCORE. For firearms holding only 5 rounds, an equivalent 30 round course will be used. 70% (210 points of 300) is the passing score.

thanks for the Info

@ Dave you did that with the xd40sc? either way nice job!

i read that they updated the law so u can qualify with 1 semi or 1 revolver or a combo of both types and covers you for all types (so u dnt have to qualify for every individual gun) it was in a PDF file on a website of NV state laws

go to the clark county shooting park. its $7 for all day. its open wednesday - sunday. im there at least 3 times a week. You can start on the pistol range then move over to the rifle range for no extra charge. It's in north vegas and takes about 20 minutes to get there from the strip.
