    OC'ing near Denver, how do you know when you've entered Denver?

    In a few months I might make a trip to Colorado, and I think I'd be mainly outside of Denver but in the neighboring municipalities, like Golden and Lakewood. Sadly, Colorado does not recognize my Nevada permit. Nor does my Utah permit work because I am not a resident of Utah. So while in...

    Uncased Long Guns in Vehicles.

    I was discussing the law with an NRA certified shotgun instructor, and he said that long guns have to be locked and encased in a vehicle in California. My understanding is, that in a vehicle in California, short of some local ordinance or passing through a state park, a long gun only needs to...

    Loaded Open Carry in Unincorporated Areas, Dirt Road

    So, where I live, in Nevada, I have discovered that if I follow a short short dirt path up a hill right into unincorporated Sierra County, California, it would be a shorter trip than the nearest trip to a place within NV where I could shoot. In Sierra County California, their local ordinance...

    Citation Needed: Carry in hotel rooms / Temporary Residences

    It has long been discussed that inside of one's hotel room or campsite one can have their firearm loaded, (and concealed too?,) but I was wondering if someone could point me to the law or case law that establishes this as legal. I did some searching, but couldn't seem to find it, and I figure...

    Kel-Tec Sub 2000 made CA legal w/ Solar Tactical grip?

    Since carrying/transporting a rifle is a pain, and handgun carry will be much tougher come January, I was thinking a folding rifle like the Sub-2000 would be nice for visits to CA. It could easily fit in bags when folded. Some suggest that a Sub-2000 would be legal in California if you added...

    AB 809 effect on out of state visitors?

    Question: AB 809 effect on out of state visitors? Under current CA law, one can bring in an unregistered handgun if they are visiting. Unfortunately, unless if AB809 is vetoed, AB 809 will expand the registration scheme. I know it adds the registration of long guns. But it doesn't require that...

    Reno DMV still expediting OC'ers.

    Wednesday I had to go to the DMV again. Unusually for me, I was dressed in black slacks, a white shirt, and a tie, because that is the way I needed to dress for school and work later in the day. (The last few times I went to the DMV I was dressed casually, but the reaction was similar.) I...

    AB 231, another Constitutional Carry Bill

    AB231 is another constitutional carry bill we need to support. http://www.leg.state.nv.us/Session/76th2011/Reports/history.cfm?ID=515 You can also add comments here: http://www.leg.state.nv.us/AppCF/Opinion/76th2011/Poll/ It primarily differs from SB176 in that SB176 is also a bill to end...

    Are dash cams fair game for records requests if you are facing charges?

    Since there are public records experts here, I just wanted to see if anyone could tell me what part of the law would prohibit a record from being accessible if they are being used as evidence. For instance, say you were given a traffic citation and you believe that the dash cam might exonerate...

    Lead Ammo

    In an area where the Condor are present, the lead ammunition ban only applies to hunters, right? In other words, if you are in such an area, where carrying guns is also legal, and you are not hunting, it is okay to carry lead ammo in your self-defense gun? And this is to be the case whether...

    Open Carry Experience at Sheriff's Office

    I originally wasn't going to share until later, but I feel that it is pertinent given the DMV thread that I posted on November 23. On November 24, the day after I visited the DMV, I went to the Sheriff's office to submit an application for a concealed firearm permit. Long story short I was...
