    Mexico is a third world country run by drug cartels. DON'T GO!
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    If you want to see the inside of a mexican prison try taking a gun into the country, as the others have said, don't go.

    First of all... Traveling to Mexico. Why?

    Secondly, Absolutely No Firearms Allowed In Mexico from tourists. There are Huge Signs at every Border Crossing. Don't even try to take a firearm into Mexico. Guaranteed Prison Time if caught. And you don't want to be in a Mexican Prison. You won't receive a hand slap and fine and sent back to the States. They will throw your butt in a Mexican Prison and no U.S. Consulate will be able to help you.

    There may be some stipulation for people going to Mexico for Hunting trips. But I'm sure you're only allowed long guns and would have to have an itinerary which includes the planned hunting trip along with Mexican contacts to verify it.

    I think I'd pass.

    15 headless bodies found in Acapulco from CNN.com
    The headless bodies of 15 people were found dumped near a shopping center in the tourist city of Acapulco, Mexico, the Guerrero State Public Security office said in a statement Saturday.

    BIG NO NO! They will toss your tail in jail instantly, and you’re likely to never get out. Oh yeah, they don’t allow guns either.

    Even a cartridge will land you in the pokey.

    If you want to see what a good share of Mexico looks like, yet still carry a weapon, come to South or West Phoenix. Most of them have moved there.

    I would advise against going. I for one have no desire to prematurely reach room temperature.

    That is so wrong, yet I am chuckling. Guess it's funny cause I'm over 800 miles away.

    You could not pay me to go to Mexico. The cops there will stop you and blantantly ask for money to avoid going to jail. Pure extortion.

    Heck, I won't even go to Wisconsin or Chicago. Why be so limited on carrying your gun. Crazy.

    One round of ammo could cost you the rest of your life in prison and your family every penny they will ever get their hand on keeping you alive. In mexico you have to rent your cell and pay for your food when incarcirated. If you don't have money to pay for your cell you will be put in a court yard with all the other have nots. If you have the means you to rent a cell you better be pretty bad (don't give me another infraction) or your family will be extorded. I use to take meals to some Marines that were going shooting and missed the turn around at the San Diego border.

    My wife and I used to ride our motorcycle days into mexico. We had quite a few friends that had condos and homes in mexico and we would ride down and hang out and have a good time on the cheap. Everything is cheap in mexico, even the value of you and your family.
    Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around laws. Plato
