Becoming a responsible firearm owner is rooted in a clear understanding of the gun rights and state laws that apply to you as a Colorado resident. The population of Colorado is 5.8 million, and the state had distributed around 555,000 concealed carry (CC) licenses as of August 2021. This means 9.42% of the population has permission to CC.
The minimum age to CC in Colorado is 21, and the license is valid for five years. Understanding how your gun rights translate across state lines (also known as reciprocity) is an important aspect of Colorado concealed carry. A concealed weapons license from Colorado is honored in 35 states, with Colorado recognizing permits or licenses from 33 others.
