Is it legal to carry on the Pikes Peak Cog Railway and at the visitors center at the top of the mountain?
The visitors center at the top isn't run by the National Park Service, is it?
If they don't have metal dectors you are good to go.
I was there a year ago, no metal detectors then. Nice ride, kinda fun. Wish we coulda spent more time at the top, only let us stay for about 20 min.
Packin' on Pikes Peak and Mt Evans is OK. (No TSA for the Cog.)
If you want to spend more time at the top, try driving up. (White knuckles for many.) I think it cost $10.00 per car. Use low gear going back down. They stop every car about half way down and check brake temps. If your brakes are too hot, you have to pull over and let them cool. There is a concession stand to take your $$ while you wait.
It’s so much easier now days, to "Love and honor" my wife, when she is armed, and shoots a better group than I do. (Till death do us part, eh?)
“The way you get shot by a concealed weapons permit holder is, you point a gun at him,” the Sheriff said.
I remember going to the top of Pikes Peak when I was like 12 or 13 with my folks. I thought it was a good adventure. I must say my dad handled the drive pretty well as I recall. That was about 36 years ago.
"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."
wife and I did the cog railway 3 weekends ago. Carried the whole way. Not too many places in CO that are carry forbidden.
"Run for your life from the man who tells you that money is evil. That sentence is the leper's bell of an approaching looter. So long as men live together on earth and need means to deal with one another-their only substitute, if they abandon money, is the muzzle of a gun."
