Caught you Kurt. :wink: You can only have semi-automatic firearms on your Nevada CFP, remember NRS 202.3653
? Our permits by statutory definition only authorize you to carry the following; specific (by make, model and caliber) semi-automatic
pistols or revolvers and one or two round derringers.
Florida is the same way. You cannot carry a machine gun on Florida license or one that is honored in Florida per Link Removed
Caught me, did ya?
Go back and reread that statue. 202.3653 is titled "definitions" and although it clearly defines what constitutes a semi auto, it has nothing to do with what can go on your permit.
NRS 202.3653 Definitions. As used in NRS 202.3653 to 202.369, inclusive, unless the context otherwise requires:
1. “Concealed firearm” means a loaded or unloaded pistol, revolver or other firearm which is carried upon a person in such a manner as not to be discernible by ordinary observation.
2. “Department” means the Department of Public Safety.
3. “Permit” means a permit to carry a concealed firearm issued pursuant to the provisions of NRS 202.3653 to 202.369, inclusive.
4. “Revolver” means a firearm that has a revolving cylinder with several chambers, which, by pulling the trigger or setting the hammer, are aligned with the barrel, placing the bullet in a position to be fired. The term includes, without limitation, a single or double derringer.
5. “Semiautomatic firearm” means a firearm which:
(a) Uses the energy of the explosive in a fixed cartridge to extract a fixed cartridge and chamber a fresh cartridge with each single pull of the trigger; and
(b) Requires the release of the trigger and another pull of the trigger for each successive shot.

I think this is what you're looking for:

(Nothing prohibiting a concealed machine gun as long as I'm authorized by the Feds.)
8. As used in this section:
(a) “Concealed weapon” means a weapon described in this section that is carried upon a person in such a manner as not to be discernible by ordinary observation.
(b) “Honorably retired” means retired in Nevada after completion of 10 years of creditable service as a member of the Public Employees’ Retirement System. A former peace officer is not “honorably retired” if he was discharged for cause or resigned before the final disposition of allegations of serious misconduct.

[B(]This is the only sticky wicket in the way the statute is worded)[/B]
(d) “Nunchaku” means an instrument consisting of two or more sticks, clubs, bars or rods connected by a rope, cord, wire or chain used as a weapon in forms of Oriental combat.
(e) “Qualified law enforcement officer” has the meaning ascribed to it in 18 U.S.C. § 926B(c).
(f) “Qualified retired law enforcement officer” has the meaning ascribed to it in 18 U.S.C. § 926C(c).
(g) “Silencer” means any device for silencing, muffling or diminishing the report of a firearm, including any combination of parts, designed or redesigned, and intended for use in assembling or fabricating a silencer or muffler, and any part intended only for use in such assembly or fabrication.
So here's the deal; my gun falls into both categories as defined by the State. I qualified with the gun in semi auto and that is what was circled on my qualification sheet. I did have to get a blue card for it because if I'm going in as semi auto and concealable then I have to play by the Clark County registration ordinance.
This situation can be treated just like 'open carry'. Nevada is not an open carry state. It's a free carry state.
Open carry is de facto legal because there is no statute specifically prohibiting open carry.
There is no specific statute or verbage that prohibits me from carrying my SMG concealed as long as I'm in compliance with Federal Laws. Therefore, like open carry, it is de facto legal.
