Arizona CCW Permit Holders No Longer Welcome in Nevada

Tuesday, March 5, 2013

On February 28, the Nevada Sheriffs’ and Chiefs’ Association (NvSCA) voted unanimously to cease recognition of Arizona’s concealed weapon permits (CCW), effective immediately.

In the press release issued, NvSCA cited a Nevada Department of Public Safety (DPS) audit, finding that Arizona had recently made changes to their training requirements for CCW permits.  According to the NvSCA press release, “these changes created a substantially dissimilar training requirement in comparison to Nevada.”

The Nevada Department of Public Safety (DPS) annually reviews the CCW issuance policies of each state to determine whether or not their statutes are similar or more stringent than Nevada's and whether or not the state has an electronic database which is accessible 24 hours a day that identifies each permit holder.

For a complete list of states with permits recognized by Nevada, please visit the DPS website.
