Two questions:

Under what circumstances (aside from treating gunshot wounds) should a doctor be lecturing you about gun ownership?

How long would it take you to find a new doctor if he/she was lecturing you about your guns?
ya, wtf is that nonsense? The chafing or rash you could get from your CC holster could get infected or something? lol I cant imagine what argument your physician could possibly make, or what business it is of theirs to ask any firearm related questions. Id tell him to keep it medical, or Id find a different doctor.

Over the years, I've known many Dr's. Most in Florida since we just moved here 5 years ago. As a patient, a few of them asked about my home environment. Them asking if there are guns in the house went along the same lines as asking if there were drug users, pets, insect issues, mental history and if the home is in a high crime area. They only asked once as a complete patient history.

I knew plenty of patients who took offense to the line of questions and took the series as an implication that guns were somehow associated with drugs and bad neighborhoods. I'm sure there are a few anti-gun Dr's there, but every one of the ones I knew didn't care if one of their patients owned a firearm. What concerned them most was if that patient owned a firearm and had a history of mental illness.

Don't have my Nevada CCW, but I'd be down to take the class if anyone else wants to join?

I'm sure if we get enough people interested in taking the CCW class we could negotiate a group rate.

Instructors from Tactical West lead the classes at Bass Pro Shops. Large classrooms and shooting lanes. Saturdays 9a -6p.

When I took the class two years ago it cost me 75$ at the gun store. The class was easy and shooting was cake.

CCW class 75$-100$
Actual CCW 100.25$

But I always carry when I'm wheelin' or around town.

And if a store says no firearms allowed you don't need to keep your gun in the car. There's no law that says you can't carry it into stores. That's what I think is stupid. The only thing a store can do is ask you to leave nothing more. Kinda hard to rewrite nevada law if your walmart lol

Yeah, depends on the wal mart and your attitude. Wal mart has talked to me numerous times but not once asked me to leave. If you aren't rude or aggressive and come across intelligently , they are usually ok with it. It's the ignorant customers you have to worry about!

What are the requirements for the shooting test? I can still shoot straight, but my coordination isn't what it used to be.

I don't remember what the shooting quals are I forgot. But its so easy that if you don't pass you shouldn't own a gun lol

Yeah if you don't act stupid its fine to carry a gun in walmart open carry. Hell I've done it in a bank and nobody cared except for the guard which was on edge when he saw me.

Don't quote me, but when I looked it up a couple months ago it involved shooting one handed at like 5 feet with each hand, including a reload and then like 10 feet using both hands including a reload. And they put a time limit on it. Although that would only affect you if you spent like 30 seconds aiming each shot.

Whatever it was when I read it I was like, well that's ridiculously easy

Id like to get my CCW at some point as well. Ive always thought it would be funny to take the coarse with my P22, just because I could probably do it blindfolded. Now with the new law, you dont have to add all your semi autos hg's to your CCW anymore. Qual with one, and its good for any semi you own. Same with revolvers; qual with one, and its good for all your revolvers

There is a CCW course at Nellis which is pretty good. You do have to pay for it though, where as the one at the Gun Store is free ATM, but then again it is the GunStore and if you are a shooter here in Vegas you know their rep and will generally not shop there even with a gun to your head.

Glad I came across this thread. I had no idea Nevada changed their ccw requirements. I have been holding off on getting my ccw until I bought the gun I wanted to carry. Now I don't have to wait. Thanks
