    New Mexico

    I am planning a trip to Red River New Mexico. I am wondering if anyone has had experience with open carry there. I am planning on 4-wheeling up in the mountains and carrying my .41 Redhawk in case of bears or other two legged critters. I have a Texas CHL so concealed is an option but I would like to know all my options.
    Thank You.

    I can't help you with the carry issue but I can tell you it's nice there in Red River and bears are a concern.

    Have a great trip

    Open carry is legal in NM with a few exceptions. Primarily, don't bring a gun into any establishment, including grocery stores, that sell beer, wine or liquor.

    In New Mexico as long as you are in/on a personal conveyance (i.e. Horse, Car, Truck, Motorcycle, or ATV), concealed carry is legal even without a CCW. NM is a logical state and sees personal vehicles etc as an extension of your personal property.

    People will give you the hairy eyeball in town, though, even where it's legal.
