    DIA Denver posted?

    I had to pick up my wife today at DIA. Going into the building I say sign saying no loaded weapons. I thought we could carry out side of the sterile area. I have done so in the past. Has there been any changes lately? I looked on handgunlaw but could not find any new info.
    Anyone in CO have an answer?

    I've seen this discussed a few times before. I stopped and carefully read the sign on the door not long ago. As I recall, it uses the word "authorized". So the question comes down to whether a CHL-holder is sufficiently "authorized" to carry in the non-secure areas of the airport.

    My guess is that your opinion and mine will probably differ from the cop who is told "That guy over there has a gun!!" If you're going to carry there, be careful.

    Edit to add: Previous Denver airport discussion.

    Thanks Desk Jocky. The sign looked new and official. Just to be on the safe side till I could check it out I put it in the truck. Guess I didn't pick up on the "authorized" part.

    It is not off-limits. However, when I spoke with airport police about this several years ago, they said they would detain you while checking the verasity of your permit with the intention of causing you a multi-hour delay.

    So concealed means concealed. I wouldn't wonder around lurking and scaring the sheep. It is definitely not off limits, but the DPD have there ways.

    Thatís kind of what I figured when I saw those signs at our area airports. So if youíre just picking up someone, as they say concealed is concealed. Do a good job at it and you wonít have any problem. But to be on the safe side, ya might want to leave it in the truck.

    In Florida it's a no no to carry anywhere inside an airport not just the sterile area.

    Since most people are picked up at the luggage area, I still don’t’ see a problem.

    The law says terminal and sterile area. I don’t see where the luggage area is listed.

    But, I leave mine in the truck.. Don’t want to get charged with "Ping off the Police".

    I was at the Colorado Springs airport last night and noticed there signs at the entrance. It says "No Open Carry of guns, knives, or other weapons". So anyone going to the Springs airport, your good as long as your concealed and don't try going past the security check point.

    I've carried many times at the Colorado Springs airport when picking other people up ... just stay clear of the secure area and you're fine.
