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 Idaho Concealed Carry license to any individual who has met the minimum state requirements for safety and a firearms training class. The

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 prohibitated by state or federal law!
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.
Idaho is also a "Permitless Carry" state
which means if you are a resident of Idaho and would be able to apply for and receive a concealed carry license, there is no need for you to apply for a license, you can carry concealed and be perfectly legal. The difference is where you can carry concealed if you leave the state. Most states will require that you have an Idaho concealed carry license if you are visiting their state; without one, you'll likely be cited or arrested.
If you currently have a concealed weapons permit, or are contemplating getting a concealed weapons permit, or you keep a gun for home protection, we highly recommend that you spend time practicing life and death decision making.
