Default Open Carry and out of state visitors.

Do I have to be a resident of Nevada to open carry?

No you don't have to be a resident.

You must be 18 years old, legally able to own a gun, and not carry in any place that is illegal to carry into. The firearm must be discernible to ordinary observation if it is carried upon your person.

Some laws summarized here:

No one touched on it yet, except the summarization, but there is no "open carry law" in Nevada. Open carry is not prohibited, therefore is perfectly legal.

Kind of how there's no law saying you can't wear a t-shirt on Wednesdays, so you are defacto allowed to do so.

I read that North Las Vegas and Boulder city have laws against open carry? what is the actual law if anyone knows?

Also for open carry, are there any type of holster that would not be recommended for open carry, basically something that hides majority of the gun.

State law overides municipal codes in NLV and Boulder City. Look for a good retention holster. I use a Serpa Blackhawk CQB level 2 retention.

Look at the holster and ask yourself if a gun in it is discernible as a firearm to ordinary observation... consider also what degree of success a corrupt prosecution might be able to argue in a court of law that it is not discernible to ordinary observation.

My best recommendation is to carry it very obviously.
