    No problem in CO. Just don't do it in Denver.

    I see your from St Louis. If you have a Missouri Permit your good to go. You may carry a loaded weapon on your person or in the car as long as you have a permit that Kansas Recognizes. If you do not have a permit, you may carry an UNLOADED weapon enclosed in a CONTAINER, in your car. The Container can be anything that encloses the weapon inside it. ie. A Zip Lock bag would qualify. If you have a permit you are NOT Required to notify LEO if stopped, however, it is advisable

    Why can't you open carry in your car in Denver?

    Can I carry concealed in my vehicle without a permit (even in Denver)? YES

    See C.R.S. 18-12-204

    (3) (a) A person who may lawfully possess a handgun may carry a handgun under the following circumstances without obtaining a permit and the handgun shall not be considered concealed:

    (I) The handgun is in the possession of a person who is in a private automobile or in some other private means of conveyance and who carries the handgun for a legal use, including self-defense; or

    (II) The handgun is in the possession of a person who is legally engaged in hunting activities within the state.

    (b) The provisions of this subsection (3) shall not be construed to authorize the carrying of a handgun in violation of the provisions of section 18-12-105 or 18-12-105.5.

    Thats what I thought. I've heard the Denver LEO's aren't as accepting as the rest of the state and that a city can not override the state law.

    Unfortunately Denver is preempted from the rest of the state. It is however legal to peacefully carry a firearm in a vehicle while traveling through the city.

    >>
    Denver filed and won a suit challenging the states excellent preemption law. Consequently, both open carry and unlicensed open car carry in Denver are prohibited. There are reports that other localities are planning to follow suit. Currently, outside of Denver, car carry is unrestricted and localities are almost completely preempted in enforcing firearms restrictions, and must post specific facilities which are off limits to open carry.
