    Until recently CC was illegal wherever any form of alcohol was sold, even in a convenience store. Now it is legal to CC in a liquor store or convenience store selling alcohol, but not anywhere alcohol is sold for on-site consumption.

    Maybe the following will help:

    "30-7-3.
    Unlawful carrying of a firearm in licensed liquor establishments.
    A. Unlawful carrying of a firearm in an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages consists of carrying a loaded or unloaded firearm on any premises licensed by the regulation and licensing department for the dispensing of alcoholic beverages except:

    (1) by a law enforcement officer in the lawful discharge of the officer's duties;
    (2) by a law enforcement officer who is certified pursuant to the Law Enforcement Training Act acting in accordance with the policies of the officer’s law enforcement agency;
    (3) by the owner, lessee, tenant or operator of the licensed premises or the owner's, lessee's, tenant's or operator's agents, including privately employed security personnel during the performance of their duties;
    (4) by a person carrying a concealed handgun who is in possession of a valid concealed handgun license for that gun pursuant to the Concealed Handgun Carry Act; provided that the licensed establishment does not sell alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises;
    (5) by a person in that area of the licensed premises usually and primarily rented on a daily or shortterm basis for sleeping or residential occupancy, including hotel or motel rooms;
    (6) by a person on that area of a licensed premises primarily used for vehicular traffic or parking; or
    (7) for the purpose of temporary display, provided that the firearm is:
    (a) made completely inoperative before it is carried onto the licensed premises and remains inoperative while it is on the licensed premises; and
    (b) under the control of the licensee or an agent of the licensee while the firearm is on the licensed premises.
    B. Whoever commits unlawful carrying of a firearm in an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages is guilty of a fourth degree felony."

    You should also be careful on indian reservations. Most do not recognize the NM CCW.

    Yep. It's a pain since we're right near the border, and all of the restaurants the wife wants to visit sell alcohol.

    For completness, I should add that NM is an Open Carry State. HOWEVER you CAN NOT OC in any establishment that sells alcoholic beverages for off-premises consumption, even thought licensed CC is permitted there.

    You didn't ask about this, but a unique CCW law in NM limits concealed firearms on your body to one, at least as of July 2008. I don't know if that's still valid or not. I read it myself, but it was buried deep in the CCW law. It was not easy to find. (Thanks to cvhoss for pointing that out to me.)

    I really wish states would write their laws in such a way that consumption of alcohol is limited/prohibited while carrying - instead of not letting you in the building. I mean there are very, very few restaurants that don't serve alcohol at all these days (other than fast food and Chuck E Cheese), it's a real pain to go out with friends if you can't go in any restaurant without trying to discreetly disarm while they're in the car. I mean, I imagine it would be... here in TX we only have to disarm if walking into a bar...

    As far as alcohol establishments in Tx it's 51% of business from alcohol sales ,there are a few other places we cannot carry also

    Yeah, 51% of sales from alcohol to be consumed on premises = a bar without food 99% of the time... I'm aware of other places we can't carry, they just didn't seem pertinent in this conversation.

    There is a bill in in the legislature now to allow CC in restaurants that serve alcohol so long a 60% of their revenue is derived from food sales. Not sure how they'll convey that info to you when you enter though.

    Hope that bill passes! It's such a pain to go down there from the border of Colorado, only to realize that the little Thai place we go to happens to have a beer option on the menu.
