    What's next is professional training centered around the justifiable use of lethal force. Look up the Massad Ayoob Group courses for starters.

    Congratulations on your enthusiasm!

    We spent 11 HOURS today getting our NV permit, since on Monday, with no warning, NV stopped accepting AZ permits.

    What a waste of time the class was, and it was about 1/2 as good as my AZ class was a few years ago, for twice the money.

    It's one thing to have to get your ticket punched, but to just have to waste a day when it could be productive and informative was just sad.

    The way Colorado is turning in Californika, you'd better get your Florida and Utah permits too if you want to travel much.

    Agreed....training is a key component in carrying these days. As a cop we trained constantly on use of force and Ayoob is one of the best for civilian training. Just make sure that whatever training you take is from a reputable trainer. If you can ever go to Ayoob's course or one from Gunsite or Dave Grossman by all means GO! I was priviledged to go to some of these because of my past profession. The decision of "shoot - don't shoot" is one that only you can ultimately make, but training will help you make the best decision possible if the time comes.

    If you haven't already, be sure to read Ayoob's book, In the Gravest Extreme: The Role of the Firearm in Personal Protection: Massad F. Ayoob: 9780936279008: Amazon.com: Books

    IMO, this should be required reading for any new CC'r. You'll also want to do some research on the statutes and case law that are specific to your state.

    Hope this helps.

    I could quickly answer that if you were asking about Mississippi resources... but since you need resources for CO, I'm afraid I can't help. Hopefully some of our CO members will chime in with some links for you.

    The book I referenced does a great job of thoroughly covering the fundamental legal considerations, and how courts usually evaluate whether a shooting is justified self defense. If I were you, that's where I'd start. Beyond that, you should be aware of state-specific considerations like whether your state has a Castle Doctrine law, how has that law been applied, etc.

    Be careful about the nationwide websites purporting to give legal information for each state. I found one of the most popular ones contained some errors about my state. I found much better information on state-specific forums, and on the websites of 2A attorneys who practice in my state.

    Then select Colorado and you will get a link to the specific Colorado statutes.

    Here is another resource with links to the Colorado statues (which are all on line on the state's web site).
