Urgent: Nevada Point of Contact Firearm Program

NSSF Needs Your Help

For years, NSSF® members have engaged in the lawful commerce of firearms and ammunition in the Battle Born State by conducting background checks directly through the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). As of January 2, 2020, Nevada became a Point of Contact (POC) state for background checks on firearm transfers.
The Nevada Department of Public Safety (NDPS), through its Brady Point of Sale program, is the entity responsible for processing background checks. Unfortunately, since this transition, NSSF has received numerous reports that the program is woefully understaffed and unable to process background checks in a timely fashion. Specifically, we’ve heard horror stories about FFLs having to hire dedicated staff whose sole responsibility is to call NDPS, often waiting on hold for hours. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE


NSSF needs your help to fix this issue!

We need real-world examples of your experiences with the new system and working with the Nevada Department of Public Safety. If you’ve experienced difficulties, please reach out to Michael Findlay, NSSF’s Western Director of Government Relations – State Affairs, at Mfindlay@nssf.org and tell us the specifics.
