    NM law is that you can't carry more than one gun concealed.

    While OC is legal, and you can now carry concealed into a store that sells alcohol to go, you can't carry OPENLY inside.

    Go to the resources and reciprocity maps then click on New Mexico. It should have the state laws spelled out for you.

    It looks like Arizona and New Mexico are about the same,
    Except..1) NM isn't a Castle Doctrine state, (cannot protect myself if I get bike jacked)
    2) You can only carry one weapon on your person.. Does anyone know, are they counting a knife if it is longer then a 4" blade?

    STop obsessing over it.

    People get shot in self defense in NM all the time.
    "Castle doctrine" won't save you or crush you.

    Do cops in "castle doctrine" states just give you a slap on the back and send you on your way when they find you with a bullet-riddled corpse at your feet? NO!

    Questions will be asked! Often in a small room, with your hands and feet locked down. The "castle doctrine" will be the least of your issues.

    why are you worrying about knives?

    NM law has no "illegal length" for knives.
    But "dangerous" knives are bad.
    Clear? Of course it's not, it's not supposed to be.

    If you are not a thug, a 5" knife may not be a problem.
    If you look like a gangster, a cop may jack you up for a 1" utility knife.

    How many times a year are you stopped, frisked and interrogated by a cop?

    If you are more worried about "laws" than in protecting yourself, your priorities are scrambled.

    Sorry to sound harsh.

    NM is fine. Don't worry too much.

    If you are legal in AZ you are probably legal in NM.

    I mentioned the major quirks. No BUG, and don't OC in a 7-11.

    Stay concealed, and on the main road through the Rez.

    Castle Doctrine can also offer CIVIL protection, stopping civil suits from either the person who was shot or his estate. CA does have Castle Doctrine insofar as being able to defend yourself in your home, but not your vehicle, nor will it protect me from civil suits if I engage in a legally-justified shooting. Frickin' lawyers' lobbyists have our legislators in their pocket!

    You might check the extent of CD protection for AZ and NM.
