    Illegal in Denver County; legal everywhere else unless posted by municipality--for example at a city owned building. CCW legal everywhere in state, including Denver County. El Paso County--COS, very gun friendly. Rural counties, as well. Boulder less so, but state preemption applies.

    You can always transport in your vehicle anywhere in Colorado, even in Denver (CRS 18-12-105.6). A handgun can be loaded and ready, a long gun has to have an empty chamber (CRS 33-6-125).

    Outside of your vehicle within Denver County, you're out of luck unless you have a CCW permit from another state that Colorado honors. If you need to move a gun from your vehicle to say a hotel room, you'd have to transport so it is not concealed "on or about your person" (CRS 18-12-105(a). Usually something like locked luggage to carry the gun is ok.

    That's very helpful. Thank you. I really dislike the patchwork of laws just to cross the country on a legal activity.

    I appreciate your help.

    As noted, vehicle transport loaded and concealed is legal everywhere in CO. To take it from you car in Denver County into a hotel, just unload it and stick it in your bag. Doesn't need to be locked, just unloaded. Better yet, don't stay in Denver. Why support them with you dollars? The rest of the state is gun friendly, spend your money there.

    Good point, we don't plan to stop in Denver at all, just pass by.

    I appreciate all of the information.

    Unless Nancy Pelosi is staying in your hotel. Then you're going to jail no matter what you do.

    Is there citation for that? I don't know how "on or about your person" gets interpreted, and the law doesn't seem to distinguish between unloaded or loaded.

    Well, that seems backwards... shouldn't SHE be the one going to jail?

    Statutes for peaceful carry, Federal Law, apply to one passing thru any state. CO also has no prohibition whatsoever against having an unloaded weapon in 'baggage,' which includes cased. Outside of Denver County, OC is legal loaded or not. Full preemption, including DC, on every other gun law.
