I have just learned, with confirmation from the Virginia State Police, that New Mexico is NO LONGER RECOGNIZING Virginia CHPs because we don't require range time. We never have, odd that they are just now figuring that out. Perhaps they had a change in their law somewhere down the line.
New Mexico does NOT honor Florida or Utah non-resident permits, either.
Here are your options:
1. Open carry
2. In your vehicle you can have a concealed handgun. New Mexico views your vehicle as an extension of your home.
Virginia continues on the highroad, honoring New Mexico permits.
