    Arkansas is reporting that they have signed an agreement with New Mexico.
    http://www.asp.state.ar.us/divisions/rs/rs_chl_law.html
    New Mexico is not reporting this and it is not one of the eighteen states they have listed on the New Mexico site as having informal recognition of.
    http://www.dps.nm.org/lawEnforcement/ccw/index.php

    New Mexico has a bad reputation when it comes to talking to other states. They have been stating on their website for the last 14+ months that they are "reevaluating" the states they honor and nothing has been added or subtracted. I have had 4 or 5 states tell me that New Mexico has not answered inquiries about reciprocity or honoring their permit/license and they can't even get a reply.

    Now Arkansas is stating they have an agreement. I am hoping this is New Mexico coming of age and that they may finally be getting their act together. But until they post that they honor Arkansas I will not add that to Handgunlaw.us. Lets hope this is a sign of more good things to come out of NM and settle a lot of confusion about who they honor and don't.

    Maybe they'll add Louisiana now too, closest state going West that doesn't honor my permit. Highly unlikely I'd ever go to that part of the country but ya never know.

    I think Arkansas and Louisiana linked up just around the time I got my permit in 2008.

    As a holder of an Arkansas CCW permit, this is great news for any travels to the west.

    I got the e-mail from the Lt who runs AR CHCL section last week. It is official. I don't know why it took so long.

    Is it just me - or does it look like Arkansas signed this thing with Wingdings?

    gommer, I received the file in .rtf format. I would say that it was converted from another format to rtf and that is what put the wingdings in there. I converted it to .pdf to post it here and the .pdf looks exactly like the .rtf file I received. But have seen those things pop up when a file format is changed.
