Colorado Gun Owners

Full Version: Hello Guys & Gals! I'm Glad I found this site/group
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
So as my user name suggests,  I moved to C.O. from N.Y.  I'm 32 years young and am very grateful for the 2nd amendment freedoms that Colorado has to offer.  Back in N.Y. the only people who could legally own a handgun were law enforcement and the rare home owner, who got 10 signatures for references, a year background check and the blood of their first born, in order to obtain one.

I've ownes many rifles and shotguns becuase that's all you can get a normal law abiding citizen there.  But when I became a legal resident here I purchased my first handgun.  I am law abiding and keep my firearms propped stored and locked.

What brought me to this site is that someone had mentioned to me that in C.O. you needed a permit to CC but not for OP.  I did some reading on these forums and found this to be true for the most part except for City and County Denver which I'm fine with.  I just want to stay out of trouble and learn the laws on OC and thats why I'm here.

I live in Sheridan/Englewood but my job requires me to travel state-wide from Ft. Colins and as far South as C.O. Springs.  Sometimes I'm in remote and desolate areas and would like to OC in those places.  I understand that you can have a hand gun in your car concealed but correct me if I'm wrong.  So any help or details about OC would be much appreciated as well as how to deal with law enforcement when confronted.

Thank you guys and I look forward to talking to yall

First of all, Welcome to Colorado.
The State is interesting in that we have a split personality where the majority of the counties follow the Second Amendment and the Denver area does not actually believe in it.
As far as Open Carry is concerned, you can check with you local Sheriff's Office as he is the one who will issue the CCP.  Here is one site that might help you in your search - https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/csp/colorado-gun-laws.
Once again, welcome to Colorado.  It's a great place to live and play.

Welcome to slightly better freedom. Don't worry though. They're working hard to take it away here too.
