I just moved to Vegas it Is so much hotter here than I'm used to working in. What is the best way to seal my minis after painting? I have a can of spray but I'm worried the heat will mess up the drying process.

I'm from UK but find when it's really hot here (28C) it's the best time to undercoat as it dries much faster ; I would imagine its the same process where you are? Which sealant do you use? Does it go patchy if it dries too quick?

I've been using krylon clear acrylic but am now switching to army painters anti shine spray. It doesnt get cooler than 28c and has been staying in the upper 30's to low 40's, and that is the problem. I need something i can do all year. I'm thinking I'll quickly spray outside but leave the mini in my climate controlled laundry room to dry.

Just be careful that you don't have the spray can too far away from the miniatures - you can end up with it partially drying in mid air and leaving a grainy texture on your models. It's best to do a test on some scrap plastic or a test miniature before spraying something you've been slaving over, if you are concerned.
