Welcome from the last best place.
I've never even set foot in NM, but I'll be living 18 miles from the border when I move to AZ. NM was also on my short list and I plan on spending a lot of time exploring your beautiful state. I love New England, but I think my soul belongs to the Southwest!
Welcome from the last best place.

There was an old dry goods/grocery/gas station on the edge of a dusty southwestern town. Every now and again a car full of household goods, towing a trailer full of same, family bundled into the car, would pull in for gas. The proprietor would ask where they were heading, and they'd tell him. Then they'd ask what the folks were like out where they were going. He'd respond with "what were they like where you came from?"
Seems whether they loved the folks they were leaving and sad to leave them behind, or if they hated those scumbags and couldn't wait to get out of that town, his answer was the same. "Yep, you're gonna find folks are just like that in your new town, too".
Texas has so many different areas - something like 7 distinct regions, so you can take your pick. AZ has its charms too, from desert to near-alpine regions. Of the 2, AZ is the absolute poster-boy state for "gun-friendly". Texas is a tad down the list, but well higher than I think any NE state besides Vermont. As I recall, VT was the only NE state to recognize the TX CHL permit. As far as forum members, it's gonna be impossible to pick the friendliest of the very many very friendly guys here - but there appears to be a concentration of 'em in AZ. I'm sure you'll fit right in.

Welcome to the forum
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States, where men 'were' free." ~ Ronald Regan
A warm welcome to the forum.

The Southwest is a very special place.
Right now, Mao-tse-chusetts is still bad. Vermont has been friendly for a long time. Maine and NH both allow carrying without a license. I'm not sure about reciprocity, but I believe it's pretty good.
Welcome from the road!! Been just about everywhere, AZ and Texas are hard to beat!!

The SW in general has always called me - and this time I'm answering! I want to get settled in out there while my legs can still hike/hunt.
Thanks for the welcome "cowboy"!
