I just open carry as I refuse to jump thru hoops for 16 hours, as well as several hundred $$s. New Mexico gun laws are a joke. Welcome to the Wolf Wild Repressed!Here in New Mexico we have open carry but a license is required for CC. You must qualify with a weapon in the class. Whatever that weapon is is the max you can carry. So if you qualify with a 9mm auto, you can’t carry anything larger than 9mm. Also cannot carry a revolver.
My instructor had his personal 45 autos and 45 revolvers available if you wanted to qualify with them. It is listed on the license what your max is. Mine shows 45 auto and revolver.
The SC should issue a ruling for forced reciprocity. Full Faith and Credit clause. States have honored DLs for years. And recently the SC forced all states to recognize gay marriages as well. Libs in states like CA, NY, etc were happy as clams that all states were now forced to accept the new ruling. It’s time for such happiness to be felt in 2A states as well. Same should be done with carry permits.THAT is why I am concerned when they start talking about a national CCP. Unless they want to say that the permit from any state is reciprocal in all states.
OR (it will never happen), all states adopt Constitutional carry.
If that was ever true, it changed long time ago. I've had a permit in Texas for 9 years nowIt may have changed recently, but in TX when I qualified it, if you used a revolver you were limited to carrying a revolver but if you used a semi-auto you could carry a semi or a revolver. You didn’t have to own it- you could borrow and then get whatever down the road.
This good advice for your wife and for us all!The funny thing here is that a very large percentage of people take their 22 caliber Target pistols to qualify so they get a good range score! There are so many people in this state carrying weapons that they don't train with, probably couldn't qualify with! And probably just looking for a reason to use it! I've always told my wife, if you're ever in a situation, take cover first, assess the situation, and don't attempt to do anything unless you have the total advantage!
In AZ, we can carry anything concealed without a CCW. HOWEVER, I strongly encourage everyone to take the 8 hour CCW course and to learn as much as possible about the laws and responsibilities of carrying a weapon. It's common sense. You learned how to drive and had to pass a test.In Nevada, your CCW covers any firearm that is legal whether you even own it or not!
This has changed. Any legal firearm can be carried no matter what you qualified with.It may have changed recently, but in TX when I qualified it, if you used a revolver you were limited to carrying a revolver but if you used a semi-auto you could carry a semi or a revolver. You didn’t have to own it- you could borrow and then get whatever down the road.
In FL if not military, the applicant just needs to have a couple of hours of training and fire one round to qualify.In Florida as long as you have a permit you can carry any legal weapon with you. As far as required firearms training class not sure. Veterans are automatically qualified.
