    There is no duty to inform. If asked, you must show your permit.

    There is no prohibition against carrying around alcohol -- you can't carry while intoxicated, though.

    Colorado is much better than NM. We have very few restrictions. You can carry in a hard-core bar, just can't be under the influence.

    Exclamation Colorado: Gun Friendly but Watch Drinking!

    There is a lot of "Gray" area with respect to concealed carry and intake of alcohol. The statutes do not define any said limitations.

    From NRA-ILA:

    It is unlawful to possess a firearm while under the influence of alcohol or controlled substances.
    Here is the state statute:

    18-12-106. Prohibited use of weapons. (1) A person commits a
    class 2 misdemeanor if:
    (d) He THE PERSON has in his OR HER possession a firearm while he
    THE PERSON is under the influence of intoxicating liquor or of a controlled
    substance, as defined in section 12-22-303 (7), C.R.S. Possession of a
    permit issued under section 18-12-105.1, AS IT EXISTED PRIOR TO ITS
    REPEAL, OR POSSESSION OF A PERMIT OR A TEMPORARY EMERGENCY PERMIT
    ISSUED PURSUANT TO PART 2 OF THIS ARTICLE is no defense to a violation of
    this subsection (1).
    Unfortunately, the term "under the influence" is not defined!

    Therefore, carry and imbibe at your own risk, recognizing that there is not a controlling authority.

    I have personally discussed this matter with RMGO and they agree.

    NRA-ILA ::

    Welcome to a great state! Enjoy!
