Colorado Gun Laws

Colorado gun laws operate on a “Shall Issue” policy at the county level. Permits are not usually issued to non-residents however they may obtain a permit if they can demonstrate good cause such as owning a property in Colorado, frequent travel etc. All resident permits are issued by the local county sheriff while the Department of Public Safety handles applications for non-residents. Applicants are required to demonstrate that they are competent with handling a firearm.

How Reciprocity Works in Colorado

Under Colorado law another state must honor Colorado’s CCW permit before Colorado will honor the other states permit. Section CRS 18.12.213 of the law prevents Colorado from honoring any out-of-state Non-Resident permits, even if there is a reciprocity agreement between the states.

So in summary, if you have a resident permit from another state, and that state honors a Colorado permit and you are at least 21 years old, then Colorado will honor your out of state permit.
