I do it once a month. Do you have a Texas CHL? If so it is honored in New Mexico and Colorado. In Colorado and New Mexico you can carry in vehicle like in Texas without CHL. You can carry open in New Mexico and Colorado. You can go into just about any place in Colorado (except government buildings and such) including bars. In New Mexico(with CHL) you can go into a place that sells alcohol for off premisses consumption but not anyplace that sells alcohol for on premiss consumption. Othe minor laws regarding facilities and state wildlife refuges.

Go here for a look.

You can also check out for additional information. As Wayne said, you are good concealing it in your car the entire trip. As he said, New Mexico and Colorado are both open carry states, no license needed but there are some limitations and not all law enforcement is up on the law, so if you plan to open carry do some reading first.

Thats good to know. I just got back from there. I was seen a couple of times with mine, and no one seem to care.

All men should know Honor first, above all else!

Honor is not holding your hand out for something you did not earn.
Honor is not forcing your ideas, or belief on others.
Honor is not something given to you by way of job, or title.

Honor is learned, earned, practiced and respected by all decent men and women.
