Very interesting Gary, thanks!
Gary Slider - FYI. / New Mexico/Louisiana No Longer Honor Each Other
« Last post by Gary Slider on March 21, 2019, 04:31:03 AM »
New Mexico and Louisiana no longer honor each other’s permit/license to carry. Ending years of back and forth with getting answers from either state being almost as hard as finding hens teeth. You can see both states listings below.   If you look at New Mexico’s listing you will see that they state a lot of states don’t honor them when they actually do. Leave it to New Mexico to remove in their listing that Alabama, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky,  Minnesota, Montana, South Dakota, Utah and Wisconsin honored the New Mexico Permit.   Those states all still honor the NM Permit. New Mexico just won’t list them for their residents to know that.

 Kentucky -  There must be something in the water! Three states so far this year have passed permitless carry!!!  Kentucky joined the club with the passage of  SB 150 and other states are debating it and there could be more but I don’t think they are as likely to pass a bill.  I didn’t think there would be three states this year to pass it either!    Kentucky bills that pass without an effective date take effect 90 days after the legislature adjourns. Their scheduled date to adjourn is March 31 which would make on or about July 1 the effective date. If they adjourn sooner or later than the 31st the effective date would  move.

Mississippi – The Governor has signed HB 1581 which added a definition of Court House and Court Room to their laws. There was confusion with those possessing a Mississippi Enhanced Permit and where they were allowed to carry when it came to Court Houses and Courtrooms. This put to rest some Judges and their definition of such. You can read the Bill at the link below.

South Dakota – The  Governor has signed SB115 (Effective 7/1/19) which will allow those with an Enhanced Carry Permit to carry in the State Capitol Building with a few places inside the Capitol being off limits.  The Bill states the person must have an enhanced permit issued in accordance with § 23-7-53. You have to inform the State Police if you are going to carry in the building. . You need to read the law if you plan on carrying in the SD Capitol. believes this will only apply to  South Dakota Residents with the Enhanced Permit to legally carry in the Capitol Building. Those with regular/gold permits or carrying under Permitless Carry or non-residents with their states permit would not be able to legally carry in the Capitol.

South Dakota – The Governor has signed  HB1056.  (Effective 7/1/19) This bill put teeth into South Dakota’s Preemption law.  They have added phrases like, “A court shall grant any person charged with a violation of an ordinance prohibited under this section reasonable costs, expenses, and attorney's fees” plus other phrases protecting us against rogue local governments like is happening in Pennsylvania with Pittsburgh at this time.

South Dakota – In SB47, the South Dakota Permitless Carry bill has one sentence that has  hearing different takes on. At the end of the Bill it states:
 Section 15. That chapter 23-7 be amended by adding a NEW SECTION to read:  A person who is under the age of eighteen years of age may not carry a concealed pistol except in the presence of a parent or legal guardian. 

The wording states that those under 18 can’t carry except in the presence of a parent or legal guardian.  It doesn’t state on their property or have any restrictions but only  “In the Presence.” We have also heard that this was added as those in the legislature wanted to make sure those under 18 could not carry. believes this wording means on private property with the OK of  a Parent or Legal Guardian present or  having it in a holster while at a shooting range or even out target shooting and working from a holster. I had shooters under 18 at IDPA Shoots I use to SO and they had a holster exposed firearm on their hip.  More than likely South Dakota will put out more info on this issue before the law takes effect but would appreciate any info anyone has on this. ) You can see SB47 here:

Delaware - Before Delaware will honor another state they have to honor  DE along with other requirements. You can read them all at the link below. It is when they drop a state from their listing  that they do it different than all other states.  Their law requires that they give a 1 year notice before they  remove a state from their listing.  They keep the state listed for a year and put a date out from it when that states permit will no longer be honored if applicable. They usually update their listing in January but the last couple years it has been Feb and as of early this evening  they have not updated the listing so it remains the same and that listing is the states Permit/Licenses they honor.  If you wish to see their requirements and list of states they honor click on the link below and then click on  “Concealed Carry Weapons Reciprocity.”  The Listing opens on the same page. There is not a direct link to their listing.

Below is a link to a document listing all the states that have Permitless Carry for all who can legally possess a firearm and some states who restrict it to their residents only.  With so many states going  Permitless Carry there needs to be a list of them and a little info about each one.  I  am putting it together with the hope of  adding it to   You can see a Draft of the document  Here:

I have no issues with High-Point Carbines. Both of mine (9mm and .45 ACP) work quite well and they have been modified to fit my needs. They are not (obviously) of the quality of the Windham (or others), but they do go bang when you need them. I have fitted low power scopes on each of mine and they are as accurate as one can expect. If you are on a tight budget, the High-Point Carbines are an excellent choice.

The MSRP on the Windham is between the high-priced models and the low priced models, and can be found for a bit less expensive price; somewhere around the price of the Beretta CX-4 Storm.

The Ruger PC Carbine would also be an excellent choice, due to its take-down feature, and for the money it would be a good choice. I like the Windham because it is built on a familiar concept and I was instantly familiar with the manual of arms. And, like a MSR, it has its own take-down feature.  CMMG makes a PC carbine that is also built on the same concept, and is a lot cheaper. And, I wouldn't mind evaluating it. But, I was able to get a T&E from Windham; whereas, CMMG did not even give me the courtesy of an e-mail telling me to go to h...

After seeing the price on the Windham, I can see why the Hi-Point is a popular seller.

As always, excellent reviews.

We get a nice 3 to 6 inch snow and then the blankety-blank wind come up and blows it all away or most generally piles it up in drifts.
