Wondering if any CHL holders in NM or AZ could tell me any funky laws regarding carry in those states. I'm going to try to look up the info tonight but thought I'd ask here as well. I'll be traveling to California from Tx. and "packing" up to go this Wed. In Tx. we can carry concealed in the car and unless there's specific signage, we can carry into almost any public place of business. Anything squirrely about carrying in those states? Thanks in advance....I'm going to try to search for some info now......

It appears (disclaimer from RnG blah blah blah) both NM and AZ are reciprocal with Texas. CA - Whoa Nelly!

I am assuming you carry a Texas CHL since you live in Plano (my old stomping grounds).

Be careful, and good luck.

I am not from NM but understand that carry where alcohol is sold is a definate no-no in the Land of Enchantment. That includes convenience stores and every where beer is sold. You should check on this.

Yeah, I hold a Tx. CHL and live in Plano. I've read up a bit and while AZ is open carry, NM isn't all that bad. In NM, your car is considered an extension of your dwelling. Basically, anything you can do in your home you can do in your car. (not sure about THOSE details:rolleyes:) Anyway, I kinda figured I'd just watch for posted signs and since I'll be traveling with the wife and kids I'll steer clear of the places that serve alcohol.

Alas, California......I had to buy a 10 rounder for my pistol. (imagine that)....it's depressing but at least I can come home to the 17 and 20 rounders. I'll be unloading prior to entering California and locking up the pistol and storing mag/ammo seperately. Not sure if I should unload the mags and write my name, phone, SSN and DIB on each casing.......I'm bringing in about 500 rounds since they're $4.63 a box here for 9mm. No doubt they're $9-$12 there for WWB.:mad:
