I refuse to go to a public range because the people in those places make me fear for my life. I just love being swept over and over again by the ones who rent guns and are only there to shoot for the novelty of it. When some girl points a gun at her boyfriend and makes "pew pew" noises it's far from adorable. If you live near Wheat Ridge and know of a place please let me know. Back in Maryland and PA I could just shoot all day in the middle of no where and those states are smaller than this one. Not being familiar with Colorado as I have not lived here long I do not know many places.
P.S I am very good at cleaning up after myself including collecting as many of my brass casings as I can.
Not just anywhere is good to shoot. There are places on the front range that are closed to shooting because of idiots and their trash.....the closest to denver, that it is still legal to shoot is about 45 to a hour away... i dont blame you for wanting to not go to public ranges, there are a lot of idiots around. Your not going to find a lot of info on actual locations to shoot because people have their secret places and they dont want them over run by idiots that leave their trash everywhere they go.
Sounds like the new guy in town needs a shooting buddy. Somebody set up a meet & greet to check him out?

Since9 and I talked today about a cookout on my property out in Rush, I do have a 1 lane range out back i'd be willing to share with those I've met..
We're discussing it (a cookout) now.. May be a few weeks/ a month out though..
I'd love to visit Rush and take part in a cookum-up party.
And I've got a whole box of .45acp I'd love to push through my new 1911.
Meanwhile, I anticipate hosting a couple of meets in the next month or so.
Hope to see you at one of those.
Hey.... that's what happens when you schedule a meet-up when I've got work scheduled. You know I'd be there otherwise.
Especially with a new pistol to show off!!!
Meanwhile, how about one at a day and time I can make. I'd be there in an Irish minute... or as long as it takes to get there from Aurora!
Hey all, been a few but work has been a bear lately with training, but when I do have time on the weekend I head up to Woodland Park. There is an area about 20 mins north on Hwy 67 that is out in the middle of NO WHERE and alot of people use the area to shoot. Last weekend I was up with some friends shooting my new Rock Island M5 Marine Tactical shotgun and numerous other firearms present. But the area is an excellent area to shoot off some rounds and relax. Not to far from the area we were in, someone had an automatic burning ALOT of ammo. A friend at work says every once in awhile a guy in the area brings out his Barrett 50cal to cut lose on. Everyone I have met up there is very nice and pleasant to chat with and also to see what everyone else is shooting these days. I have attached a link from google to give everyone an idea where I am taking about. If anyone wishes to meet up this weekend up there just PM me and we can head. I will be up in Woodland Park this weekend looking at a house I'm looking at buying so I will be in that area about 8am that day. If you decide to go out alone, there are many areas to shoot at in that area, you can tell as soon as you pull off the road where everyone shoots at. But hopefully that gives everyone another area to go shoot some rounds off at. I know of some more areas up in the mountains off of Old Gold Camp also to go shooting at, but lately it seems alot more people are using the area's for things other than shooting.
If you don't mind a little drive or want to make it a day thing and see the state some, I like going down to the Chaffee County Range between Buena Vista and Salida on US285.
Here is a video talking about the range.

All the shooting I have done in Colorado has been in the Roosevelt national forest out past Nederland. As far as I know it is LEGAL to shoot in any national forest here as long as you are 150 YARDS from any building, parking lot, or trail.
