    Colorado non-resident permit

    I may be going to Colorado later this year, and they do not have reciprocity with Virginia yet. They also no longer accept non-resident permits from other states, such as Utah, Florida, etc, that are common. Does Colorado issue a non-resident permit? I've looked around and can't find anything saying they do, but I couldn't find anything saying they don't, either. Any information will be greatly appreciated.

    18-12-203. Criteria for obtaining a permit.
    (1) Beginning May 17, 2003, except as otherwise provided in this section, a sheriff shall issue a permit to carry a concealed handgun to an applicant who:

    (a) Is a legal resident of the state of Colorado. For purposes of this part 2, a person who is a member of the armed forces and is stationed pursuant to permanent duty station orders at a military installation in this state, and a member of the person's immediate family living in Colorado, shall be deemed to be a legal resident of the state of Colorado.


    I can't find anything about non-resident permits...as far as I know, they don't issue them.

    I can tell you it's about $162.50 for a permit. $100 for the sherriff and $62.50 for the FBI background. Every county has their own looking permit and not a state standard permit which is another reason why my CCW instructors recommended getting a Utah permit for "backup" as it's easier recognized and verified when in other states. Here is my county website if you want to contact them with questions:

    Also: You must apply in person and it takes every bit of 8 weeks to receive.

    I just had a thought for a business venture...could I rent out my spare bedroom to someone living out of state and they could use that as an addy for getting a permit.
    would this be legal or would I be opening up a can of worms.

    They have to change their legal residence, not temporary residence from what I can tell. Even if it would work, somehow it still sounds like a recipe for trouble eventually. The person got into a personal defense situation that went to court.... how long before lawyers find out there was funny business and you were involved? You energy might be best spent petitioning for reciprocity.

    Red,

    I regret to say that I think you may be SOL on CC in Colo.

    The reason may be b/c VA doesn't recognize Colo b/c Colo doesn't have every Colo CHL on an LE accessible 24/7 database. I think that's why NV doesn't recognize Colo.

    I believe Ken nailed it - my Dad works for a rural SO in CO and I could not get one (the Sheriff did offer me a job though...)

    CO. doesn't issue to a non resident.

    Where have you heard or read that CO. doesn't honor a non resident permit from a recipatory state? (Example: Florida)

    Thanks for the input everyone. I'm unhappy that I can't CC while in the state, but keeping it in my car/hotel room is better than nothing. I have no problem with OC, but I'm going there for training and I'm not about to OC on company time and dime. I'm going to be in the Lakewood area near (but not on) the Federal Center. If there are any good places I shouldn't miss for food or fun, friendly locals are encouraged to PM me.

    Thanks again for everyone's input. Be safe out there.

    Only if you are a Senator or Congressman, can you seem to live one place and call another your residence.

    Colorado does not issue permits to non-residents and recognizes permits from a reciprocal state only for residents of that reciprocal state.

    Open carry is generally legal everywhere in the state except the City and County of Denver, but local governments can prohibit open carry (not concealed carry) in a specific place by posting all public entrances to the place.

    You can carry a loaded handgun in your vehicle without a permit anywhere within Colorado, and it "shall not be considered concealed" according to the relevant statute.

    If you want to do your own research, go to Legal Resources . Click on "Colorado Revised Statutes", and use the search function for "firearm", "shall not be considered concealed", etc.
