I cut and paste the 3 bills above, long reads, sorry. But, if you read HB 13-1229 it does specifically cover anyone "transferring" a firearm while hunting, target shooting, at a gun show or between family members.

I keep getting asked about these bills from family members/friends as they all think I should be freaking out because of them. Personally, I'm not. None of them will affect me in anyway except it's going to cost me $10 for a background check every time I buy another gun in this state. I don't believe these bills keep anyone safe, or solve any problems, but they are not a reason to lose any sleep either.

Will take a while to fully digest, but does appear on the surface at least, to indicate it is not as bad as reported. thanks!

the thing i see with carring a side arm with 15 or more rounds is that these handguns are not hunting calibers. 9mm, 40, 41, 45 ACP are not used for hunting. these are not backup calibers. a handgun needs to have enough power to kill an animal. those calibers above would tend to wound deer or bear. in a bears case it would tend to tick them off. revolvers that shoot heavy calibers such as 41, 44, 454, would be a better choice.

No problem, I have been trying to find them since they were passed anyway so I could see what they actually say.

Please join me and send a message to CO by taking our business elsewhere
In reading the bill that was passed, you can still bring your handgun that you already own with 16 or more shells in a magazine and be perfectly legal in Colorado.

You can still feel free to take your business to another western state, but you are going to miss the fun of smoking some legal pot while watching gay couples getting married.
