    My GF surprised me with a weekend in Santa Fe the weekend after Valentine's, so I need to review differences in Texas and NM law to avoid any mistakes. What's a good site to brush up on such things?

    Thanks!

    No bug carry, no carry in a restaurant that serves alcohol. Open carry is legal.

    Cowgirls has good food.

    Out of curiosity, does that mean he can't be armed in pretty much every restaurant ? Excluding fast food ones of course....... Or do you guys have 51% like here in TX?

    Good read, thanks.

    On the knife laws part, any able to clarify "spring knives" being illegal? Does that mean both assisted and auto, or just auto?

    Didn't see where it says no back up guns?

    You're only allowed to carry 1 gun CONCEALED. I do believe you can carry one OC and another CC.

    And I would assume assisted opening would be ok because it is not a "spring" but I am not a lawyer.

    Going back through, I see it. Thanks. Really odd law, and seeing as I'll be wearing a jacket or sweater most of the time, I guess I'll be sticking with just one gun. Oh no :whistling:

    Any knife that has a spring assisted opening is a switchblade in NM and is illegal.

    Be aware that the majority of "illegal carry" offenses are petty misdemeanors (including switchblade or multiple gun carry).
    The exception is carrying where they serve alcohol by the drink, that's a felony.

    Most of NM is very gun friendly.
    Santa Fe and Albuquerque are the two exceptions.

    Stick to the touristy places (Plaza and Roundhouse area) of Santa Fe and you won't get into much trouble, it's a pretty safe place. Do not wander off into the neighborhoods surrounding the touristy places after dark.
    Avoid Espanola (area around Camel Rock casino) at all costs.

    I figured I'd leave my Zero Tolerance at home just to avoid any knife law problems, ghetto waved Benchmade will be just fine.

    As for areas to avoid, I do like wandering off the beaten path, but don't go places that are too stupid.

    Espanola is the only place I've ever seen an armed security guard in a convenience store.
    It's also the meth capital of NM.

    Yes.
    NM is actually on a pretty fast track as far as relaxing our CCW laws goes.
    As long as we don't have a public display of stupidity (I'm talking to you open carry activists) or a negative high profile shooting by a CCW holder we will continue to make some good progress.

    We were on our way back home this past September and our first night was in Albuquerque. I took our group to the Rt 66 Diner.
    A real "blast from the past" that takes you back to the '50's & '60's.

    Great shakes, malts, and other hand made treats at the diner style counter by some very beautiful, friendly little girls.:wow:

    The gang said it was one of (the many) highlights of our trip.

    Actually heroin capital of the U.S. , according to my incarcerated sources and LEO contacts.

    But if you only spoke Spanish, you would have no problems what so ever, and in some places it is the only language accepted.

    No "warewolves," but we do have the bubonic plague, the hantavirus, and, worst of all, the infamous and painful Jumping Cholla.
