How Do I Get a Permit?
Nevada is a ‘Shall Issue’ state, meaning if you take a state approved concealed carry class, pass the written exam, pass a live fire range qualification, AND pass the background checks, you GET the permit!
Please note: You will not receive your permit in class! They are mailed to you by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
Step One – Take my state certified 8-hour class on Gun Safety, Handgun Familiarization, Concealed Carry, and Nevada Laws.
Step Two – Complete the application (online) then take the official paperwork you get from me to Metro’s CCW Bureau and complete the process (photos & fingerprints taken there).
Finally – WAIT for your permit to be sent to you by U.S. Mail. Permits typically take 120 days (4 months) until you receive them in the mail.
The best place to get all the requirements for the permit is on Metro’s website at https://www.lvmpd.com Go to Police Services / Permits / Concealed Firearms
Class costs are separate from Metro’s fees.
You pay for the class, then you also have to pay Metro’s fees. This is the same for every class out there.
Since the pandemic, I’ve only had one group class in two years and most people are doing classes one-on-one or with a buddy. Group classes get a discount and even with a buddy, I shave an additional $25 dollars off the tuition. The more people in class, the less the fees. Check with me if you have multiple people taking a class. Click here for my fees document.
You will see both CCW and CFP used interchangeably. Nevada’s concealed carry permit is officially known as a CFP permit, Concealed Firearms Permit as seen on the front page of the application. CCW and CFP have been used interchangeably for some time in Nevada. Most people will know of the permit as a CCW permit.
Be Safe CCW
