Reciprocity for Nevada
The following states will honor any CCW permit issued by the state of Nevada:
Alaska, Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Iowa, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, North Carolina, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Vermont.

Michigan will honor Nevada resident CCW permits only. It does not recognize non-resident permits issued by any state.

Alaska, Arizona, and Vermont allow permitless concealed carry, or "constitutional carry" - any law-abiding citizen may carry a firearm without having to apply for a permit.

Reciprocity by Nevada
Nevada recognizes any CCW permit issued by the following states:
Alaska, Arkansas, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia.

Additionally, Nevada also recognizes Idaho's "Enhanced" permit and North Dakota's "Class 1" permit. Only the Enhanced and Class 1 permits are valid in Nevada, due to the more stringent training required to obtain these permits as opposed to the standard Idaho and North Dakota CCW permits.

Important: As of February 28, 2013, Nevada no longer recognizes Arizona CCW permits.

Although Alaska does not require a CCW permit, an Alaska resident would have to have a valid permit from a state recognized by Nevada in order to legally carry a concealed firearm in the state of Nevada.
