2021: Nevada Will No Longer Honor Florida Concealed Handgun License

Concealed carriers with permits issued in Florida, Mississippi, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Virginia will no longer be allowed to carry their handgun in the state of Nevada. The change will go into effect as of July First, 2021.

In particular, Nevada, Reno, and Las Vegas are popular vacation destinations, so this is sure to affect many concealed carriers in Florida.

Reciprocity and gun laws change more than we may think. It is always essential to know the laws of the states you plan on visiting. The best one-stop shop for reciprocity and state-specific gun and self-defense law is undoubtedly our book Legal Boundaries By State.

It is available as a hard copy and digital copy. The digital copy is regularly updated when laws change, and you get free access to the digital copy if you purchase the physical book. You won’t find a more comprehensive and up-to-date resource.

    Oh snap! I visited Vegas from July 31-Aug 4 this year and carried. I even claimed the firearm in my checked baggage! I checked for reciprocity before I left and all was good. Thankfully I wasn’t stopped while there.

    Checking both the Florida and Nevada websites. It looks like this is changed to having reciprocity again.

      Scott Kappas (Travelers guide to the firearm laws of the fifty states) and Las Vegas law say no. NRA-ILA, Nevada Dept of Public safety (rccd.nv.gov) say yes. If the government website has it wrong what do you do?! Cant get anything but run around voice mail out there.

    Nevada IS still recognizing Florida’s conceal handgun permit to carry a gun in Nevada. They’re just not recognizing it to legally carry a swirchblade..
