New Mexico Concealed Carry Law
Welcome to OnlineCarryTraining.com, New Mexico’s premier Concealed Carry training website.
While New Mexico does issue carry permit/licenses to residents, non-residents cannot receive a New Mexico carry permit/license.
Our online training course will allow you to apply for your Virginia Non Resident Carry Permit/License which is honored in New Mexico for residents and non-residents, as well as honored in many other states.
New Mexico allows the open carry of both handguns and long guns as long as they are clearly visible. Concealed carry is allowed with a permit for handguns only. New Mexico has state preemption regarding the possession and use of firearms. Local governments may not impose any laws that restrict the possession or use of firearms. One note is that state laws do not pre-empt tribal laws on Native American reservations, restrictions vary from tribe to tribe and vary in severity of restrictions and whether or not concealed weapons permits are required.
We offer a fast and intuitive carry class entirely over the Internet. Our expert instructors will guide you through all the basics, and then just pass a 20-question exam, and we’ll send you a certificate of completion. You’ll be able to apply for the Virginia Non Resident Carry Permit/License, which is honored in New Mexico and many other states.
