Is that a question or a statement?  Where is this pine located?

I am asking.

It is in Reno NV.

Based on 2 needles per branch and 5 inches long, I now think it is Pinus contorta.

5 inches long is unusual for contorta. 1.5" to 2.5 inches is more typical in BC, Alberta, Saskatcewan, Manitoba.

https://www.na.fs.fed.us/spfo/pubs/silvics_manual/Volume_1/pinus/co...

makes no mention of any subspecies with needles this long.

I'm not familiar with the pines of the American southwest in detail. I'm familiar with lodgepole, as it's a staple native tree here. Pinyon is certainly possible. The mountains in the southwest tend to form fairly isolated regions -- speciation has run rampant, and there are some 12 pines that appear to be closely related. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pinyon_pine
