Idaho is a shall-issue state

, provided the applicant meets minimal state and federal qualifications, they will be issued an Idaho concealed carry weapons permit. The Sheriff must issue a Idao Concealed Carry license to any individual who has met the minimum state requirements for safety and a firearms training class. The

Enhanced Idaho Carry and Concealed Weapons Permit

requires a minimum of 98 rounds of ammunition discharged during class and additional legal class from an attorney.

Idaho is an open carry state

, which means in most instances, you can carry a firearm in public, in a holster, and in plain view. You must meet the same legal requirements as anyone in terms of state and federal laws-you cannot be a criminal or meet any of the reasons you would normally be denied a firearm. If you choose to “open carry” be prepared for a visit from law enforcement-

it is their duty to check you

out and ensure you are not a danger to society. Be prepared to be asked to leave premises that do not allow open carry or even Idaho concealed carry-local business owners have the right to ask you to leave; if you remain, you can be arrested for trespassing.

No Guns Allowed Signs in Idaho

have no legal weight. However, just as with open
carry, if the store, theatre, or mall authorities notice you are carrying concealed , they may ask you to
leave. If this occurs, you must leave or face being arrested for trespassing.

Do not ignore these signs on premises where firearms are prohibitate by state or federal law!
