    New Mexico OC

    Hi everyone,

    I got one basic question. Is carrying your firearm in a holster on your hip considered open carry or concealed in NM? I'm looking at carrying very soon. I've never carried before but i want to protect my family if needed. Not sure if some of you know the NM OC laws but I'm just curious if holster on your hip is considered open or concealed. Thank you for the input anyone.

    Scroll-down in the Forum Index area where the States are located ("Stories from the States")...find New Mexico and post your question there.

    State-specific questions are best posted in the appropriate state's "own" Forum.

    P.S. If you're in the ABQ/Rio Rancho area, you might want to plan attending one of their OC get-together outings. There's even a standing weekly event. And, of course, our yearly December OC Get-Together Extravaganza!

    Or start one in your area...

    You're welcome...

    You also may want to edit your user profile and include what part of NM you live in so it appears at the left under your Forum Member name, where it says "Location."

    It seems most of the members here are in the North (ABQ area) but there are members in Las Cruces and Alamogordo (and Clovis, too, IIRC). And a while back, there was one in Taos.

    Great!


    One more thing: Check out this other NM thread: http://forum.opencarry.org/forums/sh...re-from-Cruces

    ...maybe you can get a hold of some of these "Las Cruceans" (pronounced "Las Crustaceans" -- just kidding) for a get-together.

    Also, someone in L-C should take the lead in organizing something, at least once a month would seem doable. For example, a Saturday or Sunday afternoon at the Village Inn Lohman & Telshor) or, do it Wednesdays (like the ABQ Ocers do) because Wednesdays are their Free Pie day (IIRC). ;-)

    And there's a Starbucks almost next door if you want to go there and OC (on the other side of Applebee's, across from Albertson's supermarket) .

    Good luck...
