    Crimson Trace or LaserMax?

    Hey guys, Looking for some opinions: I wanted to get a laser for a Glock 17 and can't decide which would be best: Crimson Trace or LaserMax. I like the lasermax because it replaces the guide rod and doesn't change the feel of the weapon. However, the crimson trace has an adjustable laser BUT...

My state (New Mexico) says that is unlawful to conceal any weapon unless on your own property, in your vehicle, or in possession of a CHL/CCW (for a handgun).
