    need to take a Colorado CCW course?

    So do I...AZ didn't give me a certificate of completion, so I've been told by JeffCo that I need to take the CO CCW course.

    At any rate, is there anyone that needs to take one still? I was thinking it'd be cool to meet some of my Coloradoans here. Let me know and maybe we can match our schedules and wallets to take the course together.

    If you are going to take the CCW course, I'd recommend the combined Utah/CO class by ProFire at Gander Mountian. I'll see if I can get you a link.

    But, you may be able to get away with just a hunter safety course. I normally wouldn't recommend that to most folks. But being as you've been thru a CCW class in AZ and are an active participant at DC.com, I think you'd be fine meeting the minimum requirement.

    Thus, the hunter safety course would allow you to purchase hunting licenses if you like whereas a CCW course wouldn't.

    PROFIREUSA.com - Firearms Academy - Firearms Training for Beginners through Instructor plus Concealed Carry Pre-Licensing Courses

    A good long class with multiple instructors, limited class size, and limited ideology. Not the cheapest course but they're probably one of the best.

    The Thornton class is probably still being held at the Gander Mountian off of I-25 and 104th(ish) Ave.

    They are certified for Utah and can do the photo and fingerprint for a complete mail off package to Utah.

    Going that route will add a few additional charges.

    Good Luck

    since you have already taken a course, the hunters safety is a good option. Check the Jefferson County Sheriff website to be sure, but that should be all you need.

    I know of an excellent 3 day, $100, Basic Pistol course in Colorado Springs, but that probably doesn't help you much.

    I thought I read on the website that a hunter's safety course wouldn't satisfy the requirements?

    I read up on Jefferson County. it specifically states:
    "Note: A hunter safety or comparable course is not acceptable. " so you are correct.

    CCW - Frequently Asked Questions - Sheriff's Office - Jefferson County, CO

    Oh well. As a side note, I double checked the El Paso County web site, which is what I was basing my information on. They do accept a hunters safety card.

    Yeah! Since you are taking the class a second time, you have a difficult choice to make. Do you take a class that runs just the minimum 4 hours required, or do you take a 3 day class and hope to improve your skills and learn from a lawyer?

    If you are looking for the 4 hour course, there is a guy up near you somewhere who puts fliers up in all the Sportsmans Warehouses. It is around $40 for the course, and I am told you are in and out in a strait 4 hours.

    If I had to do a class again I am not sure which route I would take. I learned a lot in the extended course I took, but I never seem to have enough time for anything currently, so it would be a real toss-up for me which route to go.

    Here is a good one!

    This is who I recommend. All of us seem to have a favorite. Anthony will teach you much more than basic CCW info. He wants yo to know what you are doing.
