A regional shooting competition that would have brought hundreds of people to Montrose has become the latest casualty of new Colorado gun laws set to kick in just a few days before the competition.

Members of the International Defensive Pistol Association, which has more than 17,000 members in at least 50 countries, had planned a regional championship beginning July 4 at the San Juan Shooting Range in Montrose.

Event coordinator Walt Proulx tells the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel impending limitations on magazine capacity would be the biggest problem. The law bans ownership of any magazine with more than 15 rounds manufactured or purchased after July 1.
