Thread: What are you Carrying?

  1. Well I'm in florida and I could carry them all . The Keltec really has a hard time falling in the gun classifacation. Most would call it a mouse. New York reload is the fasted way to reload.

    carry

    The reason I was told for the one weapon restriction, was that the state police want it for when they ask for a weapon at a vehicle stop, that there won't be a "hold back" with a backup weapon. Yeah, I know, makes no sense at all, for a number of reasons; why even license, if that's how they feel? This may be BS, and not the real reason for the rule, so don't go railing at your local state policeman! We also need to gear up for 2009 to try to change the NO CARRY in alcohol serving establishments. The "51%" rule, as in Texas (I think), or the "no carry where under 21 not allowed" as in Washington state, maybe would be palatible to the legislature. At least we could carry in alcohol serving restaurants then. This is "where to carry stuff", not what do you carry - don't mean to hijack the thread. I guess we need to get a "legal/law" thread going for NM. There is work ahead for all of us.

    Putting up the good fight...

    I carry, when I'm allowed to carry, a Polish P-64 in 9x18 Makarov. Good reliable gun, but will upgrade when funds allow.

    Everyone is right on about the shortcomings of CCW laws in New Mexico. It's a shame that the July ruling, allowing guns to be carried into liquor stores, does not carry over to serving establishments.

    Wal-Marts on the eastern side of the state are also notorious for not allowing concealed carry, which is a shame considering the Albuquerque San Mateo Wal-Mart holds one of the great triumphs in concealed carry stories.

    2 year fees for CCW is ridiculous. Let's have at them politicians!

    concealed carry

    Commander_Cob; your reference to East side WalMarts being posted must be a local manager problem. Farmington has two super WalMarts, both are not posted, also one in Durango, Colorado is not posted. Strange though, the one Sam's Club (same company) that is next door to one of the WalMarts IS posted. I'm in a process to untangle what the problem may or may not be, between corporate headquarters, Liquor Control Board, and maybe DPS. We shall see. Many posts on this and other sites indicate that the WalMart corporate position on CCW is that it is no problem, but I haven't verified that myself.

    I carry a Glock 17, or 27. Sometimes one on my hip and the other in the seat holster.

    Also in the Farmington area. Got into a debate with a fellow employee that said I can't carry in WalMart. I told him that the law changed last year regarding the alcohol thing, and the west side store didn't have a sign posted that I saw. I rarely go to WallyWorld though.

    It depends on the weather. I like my Colt 1911 series 80 the best, but when the weather gets hot ( t-shirt and shorts ) i carry a Tarus ultralite 38.

    I have never seen posted Wal-Mart. It's not corporate policy and I suggest contacting corporate. They might get it taken down.

    For CopteDr in particular: The east side Farmington Walmart is not posted at the entrance, but is posted in the far back end of the store for the liquor department only - not needed, but they posted it anyway????? I haven't checked the west side store yet, but will. Not a problem, just a nuisance. :icon_wink:

    Post CCW Duration

    Um....I believe some of you may have already missed something...


    The law has already been changed in one regard. The licenses now last for
    4 (four) years. I renewed my license in '06. It is valid to 2010.

    However, you must re-qualify after two years. My requalilfication is due this
    summer.
    The Second Amendment is NOT about hunting!

    OM44 - One of the Legislative changes that might be proposed in 2009, is to eliminate the two-year requalification. I'm not sure, but I think that NM is the only "shall issue" state with this requirement. What is the point of a 4 year license, if you have to re-license in two years - that is exactly what re- qualification is about. My Washington license is for five years (as are some other states), with no requalification during that time - you are licensed, or not. Something to think about. :192:
