In Florida, if an establishment is allowed to serve alcohol then a concealed firearm is not allowed.
This means no one can carry in any Florida casinos.

Does the same hold true for the Vegas casinos?
Anyone have any links to the guidelines for carrying in Vegas?

I'm not a lawyer so don't take the following as gospel/legal advice but here's my understanding:

There's no alcohol law like you're talking about here in NV i.e. in regard to being at an establishment that serves. You cannot be intoxicated, but you may be in a place that serves alcohol no problem, including casinos (the way it should be!). Also, some private businesses here will post "no firearms" signage however, the max the law covers in that case is trespassing. Remember CONCEALED MEANS CONCEALED.

METRO CCW

Make sure you have a CCW permit that works here. The last thing you want is to get busted for concealed carry when you don't have a permit.

Thanks for all the information so far and in reference to the above, you did check the following Reciprocity Maps to ensure that Nevada does recognize Florida's Permits.

You can carry into a bar here and you can be intoxicated up to .10 and be legal. There's no law stating you can't carry in casinos but if they see it, they will ask you to leave. If you don't, you'll get charged with trespassing.

subsection (a) states 0.10 bac, but pay attention to subsection (b) as well. Not everyone can handle their liquor the same.
- NRS 202.257 Possession of firearm when under influence of alcohol, controlled substance or other intoxicating substance; administration of evidentiary test; penalty; forfeiture of firearm.

1. It is unlawful for a person who:

(a) Has a concentration of alcohol of 0.10 or more in his blood or breath; or

(b) Is under the influence of any controlled substance, or is under the combined influence of intoxicating liquor and a controlled substance, or any person who inhales, ingests, applies or otherwise uses any chemical, poison or organic solvent, or any compound or combination of any of these, to a degree which renders him incapable of safely exercising actual physical control of a firearm,
to have in his actual physical possession any firearm. This prohibition does not apply to the actual physical possession of a firearm by a person who was within his personal residence and had the firearm in his possession solely for self-defense.

"a degree which renders him incapable of safely exercising actual physical control of a firearm"...Baseline rule, just don't risk it. CCW can be pulled for alot of reasons. A quick Officers Report from a Police Officer to CCW detail describing your unsafe manner and it's over. Wouldn't be surprised if the bac is lowered to .08 or even lower to mirror the DUI laws.

While we're on topic,

have any of you guys tried some controlled target practice after drinking a few to judge your skill impairment?

I've always wanted to try but don't have anyone I trust to be the safety officer.

I think Joe would be the perfect person to be an SO for something like that.

Thanks for the vote of confidence, sd.

I wouldn't take part in conducting that type "controlled target practice" with a real firearm. I might consider a CO2 air pistol, or an Airsoft gun. On the other hand, BRPC (that's where I do all of my training courses) wouldn't allow that type of experiment anyway, because there are no alcoholic beverages allowed on the range.

I wouldn't risk it. There is too much liability involved, not only for the shooter, but anyone else who might be present.

Thanks again, though.

LOL. Didn't mean to throw you in the fire. I figured since you're more experienced than most of us, you'd be the perfect candidate. However, I agree with it being a liability.
