    CO question

    I am hoping to get an assignment to CO next year. Since they don't recognize my Tejas permit, I was looking at the regs. http://cbi.state.co.us/ccw/Statutes/18-12-203.asp

    It looks like I'm good to go to get a resident CO permit. However, read 1a. Is it just me, or is a single guy with no family in the state ineligible? If so, that's an interesting nuance.

    Cheers,
    Herk

    The way I read that is that if you are stationed in CO, you are a legal resident for purposes of the part, and so is a member of your immediate family who is also living in CO.

    Because you're referring to the family part of the law, I'm making the assumption that your assignment here is a military one. That part of the law just says that the immediate family of military personnel stationed here are considered residents as well for the purpose of CCW. This would be true even if the home you own, voting and DL are from another state. Keep those orders handy with your new CO CWL.

    BTW, if you keep your TX DL, Your TX CWL will remain valid in CO. Your non-CO CWL must match your non-CO DL and be on the reciprocity list.

    Welcome to Colorado, and thank you for serving our country in the military.

    Thanks, guys! I knew it didn't make sense, but I couldn't wrap my brain around it that early in the AM.

    There's the rub. My TX permit is a non-resident one. That's why I'm looking at the CO route.

    Thanks for your kind words, MP. It's a long shot, but I am hoping to try to get back to C-Springs.

    Shoot well,
    Herk

    I'm in Douglas County (Castle Rock) and I received my CCW in three weeks. The city of Denver will hold it 90 days even if they finish it early just to be Passive Aggressive. El Paso County is pretty good also (Colorado Springs). Just be careful and don't scare the sheep in Co Springs.

    The laws are really good in CO. We can carry in bars (no intoxication please, you have to be the designated driver/security person LoL), banks, churches, Univerities (Only school policy may prohibit). Only Utah is better. Very few gun buster signs. No specific printing laws.

    My brother lives in Larimer county, and he says that the sheriff there is pro-carry and very helpful.

    Opinions expressed here are based upon Michigan state law ONLY. Other state laws may differ. Know and observe your local laws.

    I have moved from Missouri to Weld, County Colorado, less than 2 years ago, CO has made a few CCW changes, now you must me a resident in order to carry legally. The sheriff here is very helpful and is pro-carry, I just received my CO. CCW 6-8 weeks ago, I have not seen many anti-slogans in establishments unless you travel into Boulder, then keep your eye peeled.

    Welcome to Colorado.

    One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    YOU MIGHT WANT TO PASS THIS ON, AS MANY SEEM TO FORGET BOTH OF THEM.
    AMEN!

    Being assigned by the military makes you eligible. I got mine while at Ft Carson, though I also owned a house.

    Thanks, guys. The reason the family thing caught me off guard is the Soldier's and Sailor's Civil Relief Act (which allows you to keep a different state of residence) doesn't apply to spouses, so many states force the wife to become a citizen of their state.

    Thanks again for the replies.
