Default Moving from Texas to Denver/Lakewood area : gun questions

Hello All,

I am planning on moving to Denver area (currently lakewood is best bet), and I am worried about what I need to do with my guns when I move there.


I currently have :

2 - 10/22's with a few of the 2x25 Ruger mags

1- Anderson parts based AR-15 with a few 30 rd pmags and some 50 60 and 100 round sure fire mags

1- customized Yugo m77 pap .308 AK which accepts 20 round Galil .308 mags


1- I was planning on building a SVI-based .38 super with an STI DOUBLE STACK FRAME. This will accept 18,24, and 28-30 round mags



What laws will affect me?

Sorry, I have tried reading and I don't get the new laws. Seems like some law enforcement officers enforce and some don't. What about shooting ranges??

I would contact a reputable gun shop. I doubt you will have any issues bringing anything into the state. The main shop I use is Westminster Arms in Arvada.

As long as you don't move to the city of Denver, the only law that should have any impact is the high capacity magazine law.

http://votesmart.org/static/billtext/43115.pdf

The way I read the text, as long as you have been in continuous possession of all your 15+ round magazines since before July 1, 2013 they are legal.

The shooting ranges I've been to don't seem to care how you feed your firearms. The only catch is that when you need a new magazine, the only thing your local gun stores will be selling are magazines that hold a reduced number of rounds.

Yup. You'll be fine as long as you don't live in Denver... Though I recently lived in Denver with a couple guns like that and just tried real hard not to worry about it or shoot anyone.

I'd advise buying as many high cap magazines as you think you might ever want before moving up here. I guess that's technically illegal, but it'd be awful hard to prove you bought them after the ban date unless you keep the receipt or something.

yah, the mag law is stupid. No way to enforce it.
I don't recall having proof of purchase date being included into the law. A feel good law passed in a time of high emotion that really does very little if anything for its intended purpose.

Ah yes, love the cartoon Corbet...Colorado's new state motto: " Where the mountains are high and the people even higher!"

You're fine with the guns and mags. But best advice ... don't go advertising your situation. Most of the county sheriffs in CO have made no bones about the fact that they will NOT enforce HC mag laws but the state DNR may be a different story. When in doubt ... you've owned them forever!

Great to hear this!!!

I was worried and I actually flew up to Denver to check out apartments and the housing market a few weeks ago.

I happened to go to a gun show and met many friendly people there. I asked a few dealers and they basically all said the same thing. Bring what I got and plenty more with me. They said "just don't sell them here....wink....wink"

I was sort of surprised and they all said the law is a big joke and a bunch of bull....
