Started to OC here in Vegas after a felony assault and battery against me in Nov. 2010 and then got my house broken into and lost everything in May(including Sig P220), one day after my mom passed away. Gonna get my ccw, but work six days a week so its hard to find the right time. Best thing about Vegas is the OC laws, dont get hassled in the three months OC'ing, only kicked out of a Vons grocery store( was told its a safe environment by the head of loss prevention! what a *******!) Love the forum and intelligent help and commentary. Bought a xdm 9 4.5 a month ago and a xd 45 compact tactical, I really like both guns. Prefer to open carry with full size and plan to keep on after getting the ccw.
