    Forum not displaying properly w/Firefox

    OCDO isn't displaying right for me with my work's Firefox browswer. It's like all the formatting is stripped out, and looks "cellphone-like." Works fine on the same machine with IE and also works fine on my home FF browser. All other vBulletin forums have no issues at all. Everything HAD...

    General Aviation and Guns?

    My Christmas gift from my girlfriend was a 90-minute flying lesson that I'll be taking this Saturday in Colorado Springs. I used to work at a company which backed up to the airport's boundaries so I know how far from the passenger terminal the GA section is. Supposedly, it is also illegal(?)...

    Yesterday I had to take the LONG way to Woodland Park in order to gather my parents important belongings since they are still on vacation and large portions of WP went on evacuation notice from the Waldo Canyon Fire. While I was getting gas in Canon City I noticed a gentlemen OCing a pistol...

    OCer spotted in Woodland Park 9-10-11

    I saw a gentleman openly carrying a nice 1911 today at the car show in Woodland Park. I did not have the chance to talk with him, and I was not OCing myself....but if anyone else in the large crowd even noticed his gun, they CLEARLY didn't care....of course it was in Teller County.

    One Teller County Resident finally sees the light...

    I was checking out the online version of my hometown newspaper and the headline "Conceal Carry -- stepping up to duty" sure caught my eye. The article is an opinion piece about what sounds like someone who finally realized that the only person responsible for his safety is himself. It doesn't...

    Voice Recorders Really Necessary in Colorado Springs?

    Just as the title says....are voice recorders really a necessity in COS? I did used to have one, which wasn't a very good one. And I still have my phone's recording capabilities and I could use my Sansa MP3 player's recorder...but both are only "barely acceptable" at best. Being that our area...

    Best small gun for large hands?

    I'm in need of a new BUG (actually, just a BUG, period). I have large hands and long fingers but I'm looking for a small(ish) gun. I'm just looking for ideas on which guns to check out, not necessarily in-depth reviews. I know all about caliber vs capacity, try before you buy, etc etc etc...

    Vehicle carry on school grounds

    imported post So CO law says we can have our firearms in our vehicles on school grounds but it must be in a compartment and the vehicle must be locked if we are not in the vehicle. The same CO laws classify a motorcycle as a vehicle. There will be a situation coming up in August where I may...

    Will be stopping in Cheyenne in a couple weeks

    imported post My g/f and I will be stopping in Cheyenne with the motorcycle for a little bit in a few weeks. We won't likely be there for more than a few hours so we're unlikely to go anywhere but maybe restaurants or gas stations. As I understand it (from handgunlaw.us), we're okay as long...

    OC Tri-Fold Pamphlet

    imported post Okay, since I'm currently unemployed and with little else to do during the day I decided to see what kind of OC tri-fold pamphlet I could create. I took my inspiration from similar ones that other states have, namely VA and ID. I could use everyone's input, advice, criticism...

    Police Scanner Website

    imported post I thought I would make everyone aware of this website scanamerica.us, they have live police scanners online for a lot of the cities of most of the states (and also fire/ems). It's obviously fun to listen to the radio calls but a lot of the audio is also archived so perhaps in...

    Ski Train

    imported post My g/f and I are taking the Ski Train to Winter Park this Saturday, the 10th. I've researched as much as I can and I'm pretty sure that I should be okay to CC (I know that OC is out). Does anyone know if Union Station in Denver has metal detectors? I don't think they do but I...
