    Don't OC in Denver. Otherwise you should be good. Cities can ban you from OC'ing in specific areas, but it must be posted.

    Pretty much what Yooper said.

    DO NOT OC in Denver...being as you will be visiting, I'd suggest avoiding OC in their metro area since the city boundaries are odd.

    In the Springs though, it's the opposite

    We're pretty gun friendly around here...you likely won't receive much attention on your visit...unless you talk with an accent. :P

    As yooper pointed out, definitely do not OC in Denver. As for the other areas you indicated, you are good to go.

    There is some question about Golden, Telluride and Vail, as these cities have ordinances on the book that on their face appear to prohibit OC in general, but there is also indication that they do not enforce them in that manner, opting to follow the state's original posting requirement (i.e. only areas that are specifically posted against it). The problem is,there is some question as to whether the Meyer decision (the state supreme court ruling thatsupported Denver's right to ban OC) also allows other citiesto enforce city wide bans on OC. While it may be true that none of these citiesactually enforce these ordinances in that manner at this time, the potential appears tobe there, so, use your own discretion in these areas.

    litlchiz, do you have a concealed handgun license that is honored in Colorado?

    If not, just make sure you keep 1,000 ft away from schools while open carrying.

    Again cs, learn to read.

    I stated that these cities have laws on the book that prohibit OC, but appear to have OPTED NOT to enforce them as city widebans, rather to enforce them only where posted. I said nothing about the state law, whether they can or can't ban OC or anything about opting out of state law.

    But, FYI, anyone can opt to do whatever they wish. Then it is up to the courts to decide who is right. After the state passed SB25 in an attempt to preempt all local gun laws (including bans on OC), the City of Denver opted to defy the state by continuing to enforce their city wide OC ban, and when challenged,fought it in court and won despite the fact that everyone said they would not win because the LAW WAS CLEAR. Not so clear now.

    Now that Denver has won, everyone is claiming..."OH, O.K,Denver can, but no one else". Until that is proven by a city losing that challenge in court, it is just you opinion that they can't. Again, many legalexperts disagree with your opinion.

    Bwahahaha now you are belittling Me, when you were just complaining about the very same issue in a passed thread. By telling me to "learn to read" you are immaturely implying that I cannot read. I must have made it here, this far- with BRAILLE! bawhaahahahaha!:celebrate

    Keep burning yourself up, Doc. It's fun to watch.

    It doesn't matter if he has a concealed permit that's honored in Colorado or not, the 1,000ft rule (Federal) still applies unless your permit is issued by the state in which you reside. Though, the risk of being charged with violating that same law are probably next to zero, unless you've got some sort of record (felon in posession, drug dealer etc)

    That's funny because our Colorado State ID (driver's license or ID) is the license requirement to carry a firearm in our state.

    You are free to carry however you want inside your vehicle, throughout the state, including Denver....CO doesn't care about concealment inside a vehicle.
