    I believe it is C.R.S. 18-12-105 section 2 B.

    The CRS is 18-12-204.

    You can find a whole detailed analysis of that particular statute here;

    Basically, in a car, don't sweat the small stuff.
    BTW, it's all small stuff!

    Is there a reason why? The law is a tad convoluted, primarily due to the idiotic but enforceable federal 1,000' rule around schools. If you provide more info, perhaps we could point you in a better direction.
    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.

    I don't worry about it! Your car is an extension of your home. Only thing about CO law that restricts firearms is rifles, they can't have a round chambered, or if it is a muzzleloading rifle, it cannot be primed or have a percussion cap on it. Handguns: carry it as you want! Loaded, OC, CC, in glovebox, don't matter!

    Reason I asked is because I had a LEO tell me you could not have a concealed handgun in the car. I know better than that and was just looking for the correct C.R.S. # so as to educate the young lad. By the way, he is a new LEO and was confused about alot of laws concerning guns.

    Ya, cops love it when you tell them what the law is. I can no longer count the times I've gone through that one.

    P.S. If there wasn't enough sarcasm there, let me add some more.

    Cops love sarcasm too.

    I know several that also have a sense of humor on duty. Now pointed sarcasm can be unwelcome by anyone.

    The better ones are willing to learn, no matter the source, as long as it can be verified.

    BTDT.
    I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do those things to other people and I require the same of them.
