Interesting Thought… Anytime you strap a gun on, it carries with it legal, moral and ethical responsibilities. Think about that statement for a moment. Are you really ready for that? This is something you should consider every time you put on your weapon.
If you are going out to eat… You may carry your concealed handgun in a restaurant in New Mexico that is licensed to sell beer and wine only. This is known as a Restaurant License. Go to http://rldverification.rld.state.nm.us/Verification/Search.aspx?facility=Y and do a search. You can enter the name of the restaurant and see what kind of license they have, or you can get a list of all the restaurants with a restaurant license in that particular county. And remember… you cannot consume alcohol while you are carrying your concealed handgun.
August Concealed Carry Class… The next concealed carry class will be August 10 & 11. Completion of this class meets the training requirement for a New Mexico Concealed Handgun License and enables you to apply for that license. If you have any questions, or would like to sign up for the class, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 575.430.3040.
Night Class… Riclin Firearms Training, LLC is teaming up with SAFE, LLC in Las Cruces to offer a night class on August 2 at the Butterfield Park Shooting Range from 7 pm – 10 pm. Cost of the class is $65. For more information contact Coralie Carrier at email@example.com.

Tip of the Month… Clean the magazines that you carry periodically! They will collect dirt and dust and who knows what else in your pocket or in your handgun if you carry it next to your body (or in your purse) everyday. The last thing you need during a self defense scenario is for your magazine to jam! Periodically clean those magazines.
In closing… I am debating whether or not to continue with this newsletter. There are approximately 1300 people on the mailing list, yet I rarely hear from very many of you. Is this newsletter of value to you, or do you delete it when it shows up in your inbox? If most of you find it valuable I’d be happy to continue with it. But if many of you feel it isn’t helping you I will likely discontinue sending it. Also, would Facebook be a better venue if I start actively using it? I’d really appreciate your input as I consider this question.
