Michael R. GrimlerNM CCW DPS Instructor #21
If you are RENEWING your NM CCW permit - and, you want your renewed permit to have the same firearms listed, you MUST qualify with the category and caliber listed on your current license.
NM DPS recognizes two "categories" of firearms; Semi-Automatics, and Non-Semi Automatics. The Non-Semi Automatics category covers firearms such as revolvers and derringers.
If you want a semi-automatic and a revolver on your license, you must shoot the qualification course with a firearm of each category
It is advisable to shoot the largest caliber of each category with which you wish to qualify. You will then be able to carry concealed any firearm that matches the caliber qualified with, and any smaller caliber within that category.
CAUTION: If you have a revolver that shoots a .45 caliber bullet, as well as the .410 shotgun shell (e.g., the Taurus "Judge"), you should know that NM DPS does not allow the .410 shell carried in the firearm while concealed.
NOTE: If you have a magnum firearm, such as a .44 magnum, or a .357 magnum...you can shoot the "specials" within that category for qualification - you do not have to shoot the magnum rounds.
I understand that these NM CCW classes are designed for shooters of at least an INTERMEDIATE skill level. As such, I affirm that I am familiar with drawing my firearm safely from a holster, safely re-holstering, the fundamentals of marksmanship to include sight picture, sight alignment, stance, grip, trigger pull, and I am familiar with the proper and safe loading and reloading of my firearm.
I further understand that I may be asked to leave the class, if directed by the instructor, for any firearm safety violations observed or reported. If I am asked to leave the class for such safety violations, I may forfeit all or part of my paid class fee. I acknowledge that Michael R. Grimler, Firearm Instructor reserves the right to refuse instruction to anyone before the class starts. If I am refused instruction, I am entitled to a full refund of any class fee paid to date before the class.
