2021: Nevada Will No Longer Honor South Dakota Concealed Handgun License

UPDATE July 1, 2021: Nevada has reversed its original decision to end reciprocity with South Dakota. Valid Concealed Carry Licenses from South Dakota are still accepted in Nevada.


Concealed carriers with permits issued in Florida, Mississippi, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Virginia will no longer be allowed to carry their handgun in the state of Nevada. The change will go into effect as of July First, 2021.

In particular, Nevada, Reno, and Las Vegas are popular vacation destinations, so this is sure to affect many concealed carriers in South Dakota.
