What was the drill to get it? I understand you have to show up in person, get fingerprinted and show proof of training. Its the last part thats inexact as the training req varies from county to county. What county did you go to and what did they want to see in the way of training?

You do know that ID honors a WA CPL right?

Re: Clarification of Idaho Code § 18-3302

Dear Mr. Slider:

This letter is in response to your recent inquiry regarding your West Virginia license to carry a concealed weapon and whether it is valid in the state of Idaho. Idaho recognizes all states concealed weapons permits, therefore you are permitted to use your West Virginia permit to carry a concealed weapon in the state of Idaho. However, Idaho Code § 3302(12)(g) states that your permit must be carried on your person at all times.

Any person who has a valid permit from a state or local law enforcement agency or court authorizing him to carry a concealed weapon. A permit issued in another state will only be considered valid if the permit is in the licensee's physical possession.

If you should have any further questions, please feel free to contact me.

I didnt...I was at packing.org and the map doesnt show it that way. I failed to see the recognized list though. Its sort of odd as it looks like three classes of 'recognition': reciprocity, honored and recognized. Im not sure what to make of that. Anyway, thanx for the infos.

Hell I live in ID now and still carry on my WA CPL as its still valid. I have an in-law in Moscow that went to get his ID CPL and was told by the PD he could either jump all the hoops, or cross the line to Pullman and get a CPL there. He went to Pullman and obtained a WA CPL with his ID address on it. ID seems to be pretty easy going as to CPLs, but my personal experience with non-local cops who've moved to ID, are extremely uptight about concealed carry. But thats just about anywhere anymore, although I have yet to read of a case where the cops shoot first and ask questions later in ID, unlike NY.
