thank you so much! in fact i do agree with everything you said. i've done tons of research on shotguns and have a very clear idea of how they work, and have been taking trips to the shooting range of course to practice. if i do manage to find a shotgun up in CO, I will absolutely do my research ahead of time and all.

the problem is i have no friends in FL who are into guns like me so it's not as fun having to do all of this alone (hence the trip to CO to see these more knowledgable friends), but hey, it's my damn choice what hobbies i wanna pick up and i don't need anybody else (save for everyone on this forum, lol).

thank you again!
What part of Florida are you in? There are shotgun clubs all over the state; and I'll bet you can make some new friends

When you get to CO the gun shop you deal with should know the law and won't sell it to you if they can't and will if they can. Easiest way to find out.
Why would you expect a CO FFL to know the laws in FL?

i'm located in Miami (unfortunately), a majority of the people I come across here aren't big fans of guns in general lol. i'd love to meet like minded people that live near me; the only IRL conversations I've had about guns with people have been in gun shops/ranges with strangers.

I'll look for shotgun clubs!

thank you so much!

Sol Pais has been found dead, according to CBS Denver.
The South Florida woman was reportedly found dead at the base of Mount Evans in Clear Creek County, Colorado, according to media reports.
Details were still emerging as word of the discovery – initially reported by media as a capture but then updated to say she had been found dead – broke close to 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.
The South Florida woman, who according to authorities had been considered armed and dangerous and had made threats to commit violence in the Denver area, had been the subject of a massive manhunt in Colorado, where several schools had been closed as a precaution against the potential threat.
According to reports, Pais, 18 and from Surfside in Miami-Dade County, was reportedly seen naked and armed with a gun near the Echo Lake Lodge at the base of Mount Evans in the Rocky Mountains. Law enforcement rushed to the scene and Pais’ body was found.
CBS Denver reported that Pais took an Uber to the Mount Evans area and that it appeared that Pais had died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.


FBI agents who were hunting Pais, who had been accused of threatening violence in the Denver area ahead of the 20th anniversary of Columbine, said Wednesday she is "no longer a threat to the community." There was no immediate explanation from the FBI.
The announcement, made via Twitter, came after an all-out manhunt for Pais, whose alleged threat led to the closing of Denver-area public schools Wednesday as a precaution.
Agents had focused the search around the base of Mount Evans, a popular recreational area about 60 miles southwest of Denver.
During the manhunt, the FBI said Pais was "infatuated" with Columbine and threatened violence ahead of Saturday's anniversary of the attack that killed 13 people at Columbine High School in 1999. The FBI described her "extremely dangerous."


The Miami Beach high school student flew to Colorado on Monday night and bought a pump-action shotgun and ammunition, authorities said.
All classes and extracurricular activities for about a half-million students were canceled as a precaution, though sheriff's spokesman Mike Taplin said the young woman's threats were general and not specific to any school.
"This has become a massive manhunt ... and every law enforcement agency is participating and helping in this effort," said Dean Phillips, agent in charge of the FBI in Denver.
Authorities said Pais was last seen not far from Columbine – in the Jefferson County foothills outside Denver – in a black T-shirt, camouflage pants and black boots.
The alert also said police who come into contact with her should detain her and evaluate her mental health.
On Tuesday, some schools released their students after additional security was called in and canceled evening activities or moved them inside.
"We always have heightened awareness close to high-profile anniversaries like this," Billinger said.
Authorities said Pais was last seen near Columbine -- in the Jefferson County foothills outside Denver -- wearing a black T-shirt, camouflage pants and black boots. They appealed for anyone seeing her to call an FBI tip line at 303 630-6227, and said she is too dangerous to be approached by civilians. The alert also said police who come into contact with her should detain her and evaluate her mental health.
Colorado Gov. Jared Polis said federal, state and local law enforcement were "dedicating all of their resources to locate this dangerous individual."
"We know that there is a lot of anxiety right now in Colorado," Polis said in a statement.
Because of the threat, Columbine and more than 20 other schools outside Denver locked their doors for nearly three hours Tuesday afternoon, and some canceled evening activities or moved them inside.
Pais' parents last saw her on Sunday and reported her missing to Florida authorities on Monday night, police in Surfside, Florida, said.
Messages left by The Associated Press at two numbers listed for Pais' relatives in Florida were not immediately returned, while another number was disconnected.
Adam Charni, a Miami Beach High School senior, said Pais dressed in black and kept mostly to herself. He said he was "baffled" to learn she was the person authorities in Colorado were searching for.
Another classmate, 17-year-old junior Drew Burnstine, said Pais was a quiet, smart student who sat alone in class and "never caused problems or indicated that she wanted to harm anyone."
Two teenage gunmen attacked Columbine on April 20, 1999, killing 12 classmates and a teacher before taking their own lives.
State Rep. Patrick Neville, the Republican House minority leader, was a 15-year-old sophomore at Columbine High at the time of the shooting and now has three school-age daughters.
"It wasn't easy for me to explain to my kids what was going on last night," Neville said on the House floor Wednesday.

Or perhaps made her dead? I hope neutral parties not in the FBI's pocket can be involved in oversighting this autopsy. Call in Canada! Maybe she was just out hunting ducks with her shotgun and they over-reacted?

Why is this thread suddenly inundated with first time posters? This thread should be closed and preserved. Maybe it is helpful, maybe not but brand new internet speculators contribute nothing of value.
