On the website of the NRA/ILA you can find a link to all the information you need about gun laws in every state. Do a GOOGLE using "NRA/ILA" as the search terms. I can't recall whether it is NRA/ILA.com or NRA/ILA.org . That is why I suggest using Google. Besides that I own a few shares of Google.

Colorado is a "Will Issue" state. Therefore once you pass a test, pay your money and pass a background they HAVE to issue you a CCW permit. Call your local Sheriff's office.

I am 100% sure I posted on this before...you have to get the permit from El Paso County and not from the city of C Springs Police department.

They've changed their website but you can find out more by calling them or through their site: http://shr.elpasoco.com/

It varies from city to county to state laws...a concealed weapons permit may not be legal in Denver even if you can carry in the Springs.

In reflection, I could be wrong.

It doesn't hurt to just call the Colorado Springs Police Department and El Paso county Sheriff to find out what you need to do to get a concealed weapons permit.

CSPD 444-7000

EPCS 685-9400 (don't rely upon that one....Dexonline.com is kinda sucky and google didn't net me their number. How lame.)

I know that Denver tried to out and out ban CCW's, but I know to at least some degree that law was over turned in the courts.

It's best to either talk to the Denver PD, or a CCW instructor as to what you can and can't do in Denver. By going to a CCW training class they will go over all this stuff.

I think it's VERY important to point out, that any advice you find in a forum (given by me or anyone else) on subjects like this should be taken with a grain of salt. When in doubt, contact your local Law Enforcement or a licensed trainer. Because if you get this stuff wrong, you can find yourself on the wrong side of the bars quickly!

Concealed carry permits are good in Denver and with a few exceptions, you can carry almost anywhere. The permit is also legal in many other states.

18-12-214. Authority granted by permit - carrying restrictions.
(1) (a) A permit to carry a concealed handgun authorizes the permittee to carry a concealed handgun in all areas of the state, except as specifically limited in this section. A permit does not authorize the permittee to use a handgun in a manner that would violate a provision of state law. A local government does not have authority to adopt or enforce an ordinance or resolution that would conflict with any provision of this part 2.

(b) A peace officer may temporarily disarm a permittee, incident to a lawful stop of the permittee. The peace officer shall return the handgun to the permittee prior to discharging the permittee from the scene.

(2) A permit issued pursuant to this part 2 does not authorize a person to carry a concealed handgun into a place where the carrying of firearms is prohibited by federal law.

(3) A permit issued pursuant to this part 2 does not authorize a person to carry a concealed handgun onto the real property, or into any improvements erected thereon, of a public elementary, middle, junior high, or high school; except that:

(a) A permittee may have a handgun on the real property of the public school so long as the handgun remains in his or her vehicle and, if the permittee is not in the vehicle, the handgun is in a compartment within the vehicle and the vehicle is locked.

(b) A permittee who is employed or retained by contract by a school district as a school security officer may carry a concealed handgun onto the real property, or into any improvement erected thereon, of a public elementary, middle, junior high, or high school while the permittee is on duty.

(c) A permittee may carry a concealed handgun on undeveloped real property owned by a school district that is used for hunting or other shooting sports.

(4) A permit issued pursuant to this part 2 does not authorize a person to carry a concealed handgun into a public building at which:

(a) Security personnel and electronic weapons screening devices are permanently in place at each entrance to the building;

(b) Security personnel electronically screen each person who enters the building to determine whether the person is carrying a weapon of any kind; and

(c) Security personnel require each person who is carrying a weapon of any kind to leave the weapon in possession of security personnel while the person is in the building.

(5) Nothing in this part 2 shall be construed to limit, restrict, or prohibit in any manner the existing rights of a private property owner, private tenant, private employer, or private business entity.

(6) The provisions of this section apply to temporary emergency permits issued pursuant to section 18-12-209.

Source: L. 2003: Entire part added, p. 647, § 1, effective May 17.
