I know when you buy a handgun in Clark County it has to be registered and you recieve your blue card as proof. But what about moving here and the handguns you already possess. When I moved here I looked up the code for firearms and the only thing I could find was this:

2.04.110 Registration of pistols within twenty-four hours.
Any person receiving title to a pistol, whether by purchase, gift, or any other transfer, and whether from a dealer or from any other person, shall, within twenty-four hours of such receipt, personally appear at the county sheriff’s office, together with the pistol, for the purpose of registering the same with the sheriff. It shall be the duty of the sheriff to register the pistol, and he may, and is hereby authorized to cooperate in any manner he sees fit with other law enforcement agencies, and with licensed dealers, relative to registration of pistols, so that efficient registration shall be secured at minimum cost and duplication. (Ord. 242 § 11, 1965)

and this:

12.04.180 Concealed weapons prohibited without permit.
It is unlawful, within the unincorporated area of Clark County, for any person to carry upon his person a concealed weapon of any description, including a knife with a blade of three inches or more, a gun, pistol, revolver or other firearm, capable of being concealed, without first having received written permission therefor from the sheriff. (Ord. 242 § 18, 1965)

Does anyone have a map that can show me the unincorporated areas of Clark County? Am I ok if I don't take it out to the desert, and just take it to an indoor range like American shooters?

All handguns MUST be registered if you live in Clark County, if you have not done it go do it at any Police station do not go anywhere else with the handguns without first registering you are asking for trouble if stopped by a LEO.

This must be done wether you bought it here or brought it here, Just to save you time and argument dont even bother to try to argue it on here it has been covered so many times all with the same outcome, sorry to be so blunt but just trying to save you time and trouble

Read Clark County Code 12.04.200 below

LVMPD

Look here for places to shoot

ALL handguns must be registered with the Sheriff in Clark County. It doesn't matter whether you are in an unincorporated part of Clark County or not.

As far as having a handgun concealed in your vehicle you are Ok as long as it is not concealed upon your person and you are not in the unincorprorated cities of North las Vegas or Boulder City (they both have separate, but mirrored ordinances).

If you want to carry a concealed handgun upon your person anywhere in the state (and that includes a purse, fanny pack, briefcase, backpack etc), you must first obtain a Nevada CCW permit.

Open carry is Ok in Nevada, although not always recommended (Nevada law is silent on open carry) unless you are in North Las Vegas or Boulder City (be very cautious with open carry in those cities).

Hope this helps.

I've not found a registration requirement in the municipal codes of Boulder City or Mesquite.

Thanks again guys I'll do it this week. I never did it because all of the codes I found never mentioned moving here with a gun you already owned. This is the first one that doesn't give a timeline of possession.

They won't even ask you. Just go in there and say you need to register a handgun.

BTW, the handgun registration stuff is pure BULLSHIT!!!

For what little this adds, I am here several months a year. I walk into the sub station in Las Vegas on Harmon Ave I think it is and give them the guns and the ID, 10 minutes later after filling out the forms I walk out with the blue cards. What I find interesting is that it is done with a smile, not the learing I get back in good olde NY. I do understand my New York Carry permit is not valid here, and that sucks...
