  1. I recently had occassion to drive from NM to FL. As the above list shows, ther are states to the east of us that do not honor NM CCW permits, the way around that, was that I applied for, and also carry a Florida CCW permit. While it’s not necessarily for everyone, it really helps a lot to have your butt covered IF you are stopped and carrying concealed.
