I'm new to carrying a firearm and I am confused about the laws concerning how one carries their weapon. In New Mexico it is legal to open carry but you have to be licensed to conceal carry. Maybe I'm just thick but that doesn't make much sense to me. I have carried open in a holster twice and won't do it again. I had cops called on me once and was asked to leave Walmart the other time. It makes people very uncomfortable. I tried a few different holsters for concealed but they are all very uncomfortable. I live close to all this stuff going on in Juarez Mexico and need to carry a gun. I don't want to get a license for concealed carry. I don't see how anyone has the right to require me to do that and I don't want my name on their forms. So for now my best solution is just to carry my pistol in my left front pocket of my bluejeans. It's a 9mm and fits just fine. I can get it out fast enough and I've asked several people if they can tell what it is and they can't. It's not uncomfortable so that's my imperfect solution.
