Re: my small growing collection
Funny you asked about conceal/open carry in Colorado, John. Just finished looking that up. Colorado is an 'open carry' state, but there are places here, like the People's Republik of Denver and Yuppieville...errrr... Boulder - that have extemely limited or restricted open carry.
Colorado is a shall-issue state for conceal carry. Some of the Sheriffs in the larger Denver Area Counties are anti gun, and make the applicant wait the full 120 days before they issue the permitt. I live in Arapaho County (south of Denver) and the Sheriff's Department called me and my wife just the day before their official time limit expired.
You should have seen what our former Apapaho County Sheriff did when the Pope came to our County some years ago for Youth Day. He mobilized EVERY law enforcement agency within 200 miles to keep an eye on all those CHRISTIAN TEENAGERS. I guess he expected them to run amok and rape, pillage and sack and burn Denver to the ground. But that's another story.......
That is a nice collection there! You are right, that's some handsome wood on that Type 44. Those laminated stocks are great. A Ruger 10-22 would go nice with that collection....
