Nevada CCW | First Time


American's enjoy the right that people of many other countries do not, and that is the right to own firearms legally. With this right comes great responsibility. 


By obtaining a CCW Nevada permit, you can carry a concealed firearm in 31 states. This class is thorough with valuable information and exceeds the minimum standards mandated by law for the permit application process. It is an 8-hour 'minimum' required course through the State of Nevada. Concealed Firearm Permits are valid for a period of 5 years and can be renewed every 5 years thereafter. 


Course Includes: personal instruction in Nevada law, firearm use-safety-storage-ownership, state proficiency exam (Pass/Fail of 70%), state permit application, state approved B27 target for qualification and course completion certificate. You will walk away from this course empowered as a safer and more responsible firearm carrying citizen. 


  • Must own and lawfully possess a firearm. (We will not compromise safety and the seriousness by having gun-rentals).

  • Must have the heart and mindset to understand and to demonstrate the responsibility of firearm ownership.

  • Must have the heart and mindset to understand what it takes to have the confidence to carry concealed in public.

What You Will Need To Take With You:

  • Your CCW permit application (signed by the instructor);

  • Debit/credit cards, cash, money order or cashier’s check for the appropriate fee;

  • Proof of residency (valid driver’s license). If not born in the United States (whether or not a U.S. citizen at the time), proof of citizenship in the form of:

  • You must submit your permit application within 1-year of class completion, or the application will become invalid;

  • Your Course Completion Certificate is not necessary to bring to METRO. It is for your records only and to show tangible evidence that you are a serious firearm owner who has successfully met the requirements of a CCW class. We recommend keeping all your certificates to show you are dedicated to consistent education and training should you end up a court of law;

  • Once you pay your fees, you will sit and wait to be called upon to take your colored photo and to be fingerprinted;

  • When being fingerprinted, this is a good opportunity to ask for additional finger print cards if needed. Additional fingerprint cards are an additional small fee;

  • The background check will take up to 120-days. Do not call METRO before this time. When it is 121-days you may call to see what the hold up is;

  • Should your permit application be denied, you will receive a denial letter through the mail stating the reasons for the denial. You may challenge the denial.
