Most states, with very few exceptions, will honor the

Enhanced Idaho Carry Concealed License

, Some states, such as California will not, but then again, it’s
California. Other states will not because the license covers all carry and concealed weapons from knives and dirks to throwing stars and firearms. While other states will
not honor the license because it does not specifically state it’s a handgun license. Finally, some states, such as Oregon, do not have reciprocity agreements with other
states, but they allow non-residents to acquire a license.

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.

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.
