How Do I Get a Permit?

Nevada is a ‘shall issue’ state meaning if you take the state mandated gun safety & concealed carry class and pass all the requirements, you GET the permit!

First– Take a state certified 8-hour (min.) class on Gun Safety, Handgun Familiarization, Concealed Carry, and Nevada Laws. Two – After my class, take the official paperwork you get from me to Metro’s CCW Bureau and apply for the concealed carry permit.
Finally – WAIT for your permit to be mailed to you by Metro –  in about 90 days!

You MAY apply for a Nevada CCW Permit if you –

  • Can legally possess a firearm.
  • Are 21 years of age or older at the time of your application.
  • Successfully complete an approved firearms course in Clark County, paid for by the applicant.
  • Submit all paperwork and pay the appropriate fees to the Metropolitan Police Department.
  • Non-resident’s may also apply.
