Wow is the OP being misled. I am going to take a wild stab and say the the OP took his training at The Gun Store on Tropicana Ave.

First there is absolutely no law about using hollowpoint only in Nevada.

Boulder City prohibits ANY firearm be transfered loaded within 1,000ft of a building. It's a city law, and also applies to anyone with a state recognized CCW.
Boulder City is out to lunch. The State of Nevada passed a pre-emption law which voided all of the nonsense bills such as this from Boulder City. The instructor is clearly not up to date on his laws.

In Las Vegas, you can carry a loaded handgun in the glove box in your car or truck without a CCW except through the North Las Vegas area and Boulder City.
Once again the pre-emption law has fixed this. Nevada is an open carry State. You can have a loaded handgun in your vehicle unless it is concealed on your person. Then the carry permit is needed.

He has also told us that blue cards aren't required to have on your person when you have your piece on you as well. This was verified by an individual in class who told us he was pulled over 3 weeks ago and had his firearm removed and confiscated for not having his reg. card on him as well. He talked to a lawyer about the charge and now he has a mile of red tape to cross to get his gun back, but the chrges are going to be dropped.
The blue card thing is a Clark County only thing. It was specifically grand-fathered in on the pre-emption law. There is is no County ordinance that states that the "blue card' must be with you but always carrying it along with your handgun will prevent the above situation from happening. Remember all cops don't know every single ordinance on the books. They have a hard enough time as it is. Having an instructor tell you not to carry the simple little piece of paper that would prevent this kind of a hassle is just stupid.

A quick suggestion here. Please avoid wherever you took your class from now on. The instructor is clearly an idiot. If you need any further training or have any questions contact Kurt Gepke at TeamDigit. He is a very highly respected trainer here in the Vegas Valley.

Also check out this site for local shooting information.

Thanks for all the help everyone. Forgive me for posting these things, but I felt it be better addressed than laid to rest and lived that way. It is more than likely that the instructor needed to catch up on some laws, I can't imagine it being easy to know exactly when laws are ratified. And thanks for the links WoofersInc. I take it you live in Vegas as well. I'm not sure of the gun store on Tropicana you're talking about, but the one I went to for my CCW course was on Highland (I'm sure you know which one I'm talking about). Great selection of firearms, fantastic prices, and awesome employees. But it sounds like they might need to be updated on certain things.
