Shipping of Firearms

If you need to ship your firearms and/or tools to the school, they should be addressed to yourself in care of the school.  The firearm will be received in our mail room and given to the Gunsmithing Department to place in the gun vault.  If you ship through UPS or FedEx, and get a pre-paid shipping label, you will be able to ship the gun back through our mailroom.  If you do not get a pre-paid label, you may take the firearm to the local UPS center – UPS’s only receives packages for shipping between 4:30 and 6:00 p.m. 

Please address your package to the school as follows:
Trinidad State College
Attn: John Doe, NRA Student
600 Prospect Street
Trinidad, CO 81082

Handguns must be shipped by overnight air.

If you have any questions about shipping firearms, please call the tool room at 719-846-5469. The College mailroom is located on the first floor of the Berg Building.
Firearms on Campus
If you are licensed to carry a concealed firearm, they are allowed on campus per Colorado State law; however, for safety reasons no loaded firearms are allowed in the Gunsmithing classrooms.  Please do not bring concealed firearms or ammunition to your class.  If you are staying in campus housing, a gun safe is available to store firearms in O’Conner Hall.  Firearms you are using as class projects may be stored in the gun safe in the tool room.

When transporting firearms on campus, please carry them in a gun case.
