I have a permit for concealed carry in Texas. The imprint issue can be a tough one. As for Tenn. they are not as pickey as you may think. As I said I don't think you travel armed as much as I do. I have a permit that allows me to carry in most places. That said, in some states you must be more careful.

I agree to some of that. However, don't get caught in North Vegas or Boulder City, Nv. with a CCW or you are going to jail. Nevada does not have expemtion protection so cities and towns can have laws over ruling your state rules. Nevada has a complex view of other states permits. Your neighbor state of Utah is banned from using their permits in your state.

Doesn't Las Vegas (NV) require a permit to buy a pistol?

What about the "Clark County Gun Regristration Program"? Sorry, this has nothing to do with Texas gun laws. I was traveling from Uvalde to Big Spring when my cousin stopped at a store. On one side was a liquor store and the other a gun shop. In the same room. I was impressed!

Nevada has some really screwed up rules. They have passed a Premt. Law however old gun laws were grand fathered in. In Clark Co. you must wait 72hours for the Cooling Off period to P/U a handgun. The gun must be registered with the Metro Police of LV. They issue you a "Blue Card" which must always be with you and the handgun even at the range.

Clark Co is the only county in Nevada with a registration law.

That is not uncommon in the rural areas in much of the country. I buy at a LGS that has over 1,300 guns in stock. Walk thru one door and there is the largest liquor store for one hundred miles. We call it Energy Saving.

Corrected it. Just a typo.

I think carrying openly is fine in the country,
in the woods etc. Silly to do it as a matter of course. Concealed is best. Constitutional carry is great. I hope Texas has it some day.

Texas is not going to secede. all this will blow over once the republicians get over their disappointment from the elections.
