Idaho does recognize CCW permits from all other states so, if you are not a resident of Idaho and have a CCW permit from your home state, or any other state, there really isn't any need to apply for an Idaho permit. Just remember that, if you carry in our state you must follow Idaho's laws. I hope this helps.
    It wasn't specifically stated, but I got the impression from the state website that it was like Pennsylvania and North Dakota, where you have to apply in person.

    Go to sheriffs office apply show proof of firearms training, ( hunters saftey, NRA class, or orher similar class.) Pay the fee and wait . Just got my Idaho resident permit in september.

  4. Hi everybody. This is my first post here. I'm in Madison county, I just applied for my CCW... I called ahead and the Sheriff's office told me that I don't need any training, etc. Well, when they had me fill out the form there was a space for listing any firearms training.... I just left it blank. Does anyone know if this will be
    a problem? Also, how long do permits usually take in Madison county?

  5. DON'T FORGET....

    Out of state permits will NOT exempt you from the Federal 1000' Gun Free School Zone prohibition.
    Anyone who says, "I support the 2nd amendment, BUT"... doesn't. Element of Surprise: a mythical element that many believe has the same affect upon criminals that Kryptonite has upon Superman.

    You must apply in person, as you have to be fingerprinted by the Sheriff's office. You also must have proof of firearms training. It's all shown on USA Carry's Idaho webpage: Idaho Concealed Carry Permit Information

    Im in grangeVille Idaho, when I got my CCW permit I did not have to show proof of firearms training. I just went to the sheriff`s dept and filled out the paper work and was finger printed. Thirty days later I got a notice in the mail to go down to DMV and pick up my ccw permit.

    That's what they told me it would be like out here in Madison County... they told me they would call me. I've been waiting about three and a half weeks. Hopefully I'll hear back soon.

    I moved here from Nevada and walk into Kootenai Co.Sheriffs with a hunters safety certificate and applied for a permit.Thought that was a little easy.I'm going to take a class and find out the legal side of it though.The when can I and when can't I part of it.I also here you have to get a permit in your own state before you try and get one in another.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    Idaho requires that you provide proof of firearms safety training to get a CCW. They do not require any live fire qualification as in Nevada. They do accept hunter safety training as proof of firearms safety training.

    Some states, like Utah, require that you have your resident state's CCW before you apply for their non-resident CCW. If you're interested, we have our next Utah CCW class on February 18th. In that class I do compare Utah's laws with Idaho's and that may answer your legal-side questions. If you have any questions, please go ahead and give me a call.

    Idaho accepts permits from all other states, and they don't require you have a resident Idaho permit before getting one in another state. I live in Post Falls and have only a Washington permit (so I can carry across the border) and was told at the sheriffs office I didn't need to get my Idaho permit to carry there if I didn't want to. It's a good idea as although Washington, Montana and Idaho take the non-resident Washington permit, Wyoming does not so if you travel there you need the Idaho resident one.
