FWIW I recommend spending a little extra by training and testing with Earl @ Archangel ArchAngelLasVegas.com

He's very professional and knowledgable...even though well trained as I was he helped remind me of a few things and showed me other things that I didn't know.

I think a responsibility like carrying a firearm deserves a bit more than just running through a license mill.

The question was if anyone knew about the CCW course at the Gun Store. Personally I have no desire to carry, but I sometimes do a couple transfers a year and I'd simply be using it to save the $25 background check every time. I already have a blue car so I'm not concerned with the waiting period.

Mainly for too good to pass up opportunities on gunbroker, etc.

If you seek a NV resident permit, you must qualify in your county of residence.
Non-resident permits can be issued by any county in the state.
Those visiting Las Vegas wishing to obtain a non-resident NV permit may want
to consider one of several licensed NV permit classes in Nye county (Pahrump),
the drive is shorter than the waiting in line in Las Vegas). While there are no
"free" classes, the $50.00 - $75.00 courses are reasonable and the instructors
flexible with scheduling. All courses require the same classroom/range time,
thus no shortcuts. Obtaining fingerprinting services from Nye County Sheriffs'
Dept. is considerably faster than Clark County (Las Vegas) and much less
hassle.

Check with the local (Pahrump) gun stores for details.

The major advantages of this option are, faster County services, smaller, more
personalized classes/range qualification, no ammo limitations (Non-Frag ammo
not required), and most importantly, few or no "thrill" seeking mobs of tourist!
( No offence to Mr. Irwin, it's just business).

As (currently) a tourist, the only gun store/range I see that ever has mobs of us would be the Gun Store on Trop. They'be completely transformed themselves into a tourist mill. Last trip, I avoided them, and went to American Shooters. The place was very nice, and mid-day/week, pretty empty. I can't speak for their courses, but I doubt there would be any hassle dealing with them. I also can't speak for dealing with Clark County licensing bureau.

Discount Firearms on the weekends has plenty of tourists playing with machine guns. BTW they offer CCW classes too.

I have a silver car and I don't have to wait either!

I think you only have to wait if you have a red car!

Could you tell me what that costs? I'd like my wife to get some good training. I can teach her, but I think most family members would pay more attention to a non family member. Besides, I haven't had any training myself since the 1960s in the Marine Corps; so I could use a refresher too.

I agree on American Shooters.
