    Getting read to take a trip through NM and was wondering if a 21 year old with no CCW could legally vehicle carry through NM?

    Completely legal in NM. You can have any kind of guns loaded/unloaded open/concealed anywhere in your car.

    Enjoy your trip!

    Have a good trip...

    castiel is correct. Your car or RV is considered your home in New Mexico. You may carry open or concealed. Using your gun in the car is frowned upon. :-)

    ...and you can legally OPEN carry on your person outside of your vehicle while in NM, too...just stay out of the few certain places you can't.

    I wouldn't call almost every grocery store and gas station "a few certain places" ....

    Just stay away from anywhere that sells alcohol!

    Places that sell alcohol are still OK in the parking lots, so pay at the pump is OK open carrying.
