    Another new guy just saying hello!

    Hello everyone! It is very encouraging to see so many people that support our rights and exercise them regularly.

    I am new to this forum have been feverishly researching all of the CC and OC laws for Colorado. I am looking forward until the time that I can afford to get my CCW permit...but until then I am quite happy to be able to OC. And if anyone knows of any OC get togethers or events in the Denver Metro area let me know!

    Good to meet you all and I look forward to contributing here!

    Welcome to the forum! OC is nice and comfortable compared to CC and there are sooooo many different options.

    Welcome to the forum! You will find a wealth of information on here. Keep checking back on the CO thread for Meet and Greets and we should be having some soon with spring and summer just around the corner!

    Welcome to OCDO! I think you'll like it here.

    I've been trying to simplify them by way of parameter. My best attempt isn't 100%, but it'll keep you out of trouble:

    1. CC with your license everywhere except:
    a. City buildings which screen with metal detectors at all entrances.
    b. On K-12 school property
    c. In private businesses where it's posted "No Firearms."

    2. OC everywhere except the above and:
    a. Within 1,000' of the edge of K-12 school property
    b. In private business where it's posted "No Openly Carried Firearms," "No Public Display of Firearms," or similar.
    c. On public transportation, including bus and rail.
    d. Anywhere within the boundaries of Denver / Denver County.

    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    A very good, concise list since9! But may I suggest a tweak to 2a and 2b:

    ...
    2. OC everywhere except the above and:
    a. Within 1,000' of the edge of K-12 school property (unless you have a CC license)
    b. Where it's posted "No Openly Carried Firearms," "No Public Display of Firearms," or similar.
    ...

    a: Because the CC license makes you "legal" withing 1000'.
    b: drop "In private business" because of the "No open carry" signs on many public buildings in Colorado Springs.

    When seconds count, the police are mere minutes away...
    They'll never take your "hunting rifle", they'll call it a "sniper rifle" first.
    Zero failures comes at infinite cost.
