State Laws to be aware of:
It is the responsibility of attendees to know and comply with all and Federal Firearms Laws.
However, if passing thru Denver: Denver has an Assault Weapons Ban for rifles with mags over 20 rounds, also mags over 20 rounds are banned. Although there are provisions for a non-resident passing through, it is best to keep firearms cased and simply avoid stopping in Denver altogether. They will arrest you and make you hire a lawyer to get your rifle back. There is no state Assault Weapons Ban. Open carry is legal in Colorado except in some cities (don't press your luck in cities, they'll find something else to charge you with). Concealed carry requires a permit. No loaded long arms in vehicles – chamber must be empty (hunting law), handguns OK.
Boulder Rifle Club Appleseed Scholarships
**** Before requesting a BRC Appleseed Scholarship you MUST register at the Appleseed site. ****
For the Appleseed Sessions that are held at Boulder Rifle Club,
2 complete scholarships are available for each event. The Boulder
Rifle Club (BRC) would like to see people who don't have rifles available
or who would like exposure to the fine old traditions and skills of the expert
rifleman get this instruction, so the BRC will pay the Appleseed fees,
plus furnish rifles and ammunition. The BRC's priorities are parent-child pairs,
children, all others who would like instruction in riflery and American history.
Please contact the BRC Appleseed Coordinator (BRC-Aseed@boulderrifleclub.com )
to request the scholarships. Have a list of the events you've registered to
attend and we can work with you on scheduling the equipment.
NOTE: If you are having a problem finding .22 ammunition please contact us using the contact information below.
Centerfire welcome - bring your .22 if you want to save on ammo costs.
Please leave your rifles in the car until asked to bring them to the firing line. Please, no handguns (concealed or open) on the firing line. Bring layered clothing, a windbreaker, and lightweight gloves, eye protection and hearing protection. Bring rain gear, jacket, a lunch, snacks, and plenty of water. A shooting jacket will be extremely helpful for the high power shooting, and a shooting mat, e.g., a 4’ x 7’ carpet scrap, will be desired for prone and sitting. If rain or snow is expected, bring a tarp to put your mat on. For more on what to bring see: http://www.appleseedinfo.org/as_prepare.html
We will shoot from 25 meters but may get a chance to move out to 100 yards on Sunday.
