    Default conceal permit instruction



    Here is the info that was asked of me for who i am taking the class from. I know him from work he is 2 floors down from me at my work. Good guy, and he owns his own business. He is licensed to instruct conceal classes and is also a gunsmith/dealer.

    here is his info.

    John Melton

    He runs the class out of his house and then the range is about 25 minutes away.

    I will let him inform you of the fees and what to bring, he only get you the certification to apply for a permit but as with all classes you still need to submit it to the local sheriff office near you to get the permit. If he isnt in your price range or what you looking for shop around, i dont know what the going rate for conceal class is.

    From what I've observed, about $100-125.

    Just FYI
    While I think it is very necessary for EVERYONE to be familiar with a gun and know proper safety and the laws of where they are... There is a loophole in CO and you don't have to GO to a safety class to get your CCW.
    If you are already familiar with guns, know how to shoot one and actually DO, you can actually take a "home class". HighlandsRanchFirearms.com offers one for $50. I heard about this a while ago, when the gun training classes were booked 3-6 months out.

    Also if I may add... if you were in the Armed Forces and have Pistol experience/qualification AND have been Discharged within 10yrs, you may use your DD214 as proof of firearms training when turning in your CCW Application at your local County Sheriffs Office. My brother recently got his CCW using his DD214. I myself was able to use a transcript of firearms training at a Federal Law Enforcement Academy I attended 4yrs ago. I was also prior Military but have been out just a little over 10yrs so was unable to use my DD214.

    Just don't go into Denver like that.... it's illegal. :tsk:

    Everywhere else is OK. Though, you don't see it in urban areas very much - I've only seen open carry in the mountains.

    Good to know! I live in the mountains so I don't know too much about Denver.

    I think people get a little freaked out if they see someone open carrying and they obviously aren't law enforcement. They figure you're a little wacko in the head or something. :lol:

    The only time I saw a guy carrying openly, he was on an atv, with a bunch of other atvs, in Utah or Colorado, can't remember which. In that kind of circumstance, I prefer the open carry as it lets you know a bit about who you are chatting with.

    I saw a guy with 2 six shooters, one on each hip in Walmart in Cheyenne, WY. I first looked around for the cameraman...none there! Judging by the wear on the holsters, this was an everyday thing for that guy.

    Whoa that would of been kinda crazy to see in a Walmart. Was he an older guy?

    I'll also "open carry" when camping/hiking using a tactical thigh holster.

    When I was visiting my brother and his wife in Madison WI, I mentioned that I had sold my pistol and would be looking for a replacement at some point and I got the 'why do you need one?'. My brother's wife is from Argentina and he told her "it's the West out there, it's different". I didn't say much else about it but it is different than University Town, Midwest USA
