    Anybody from Idaho?? Permit question

    I am wondering how long it takes to process the paperwork for an Idaho CCW permit. My paper work has been in over a month and the law say's "shall" within 90 days just hoping it doesn't take that long. Anybody with a recent experience?

    Well if your in Ada County, I'd give them a call and ask the person over the processing of them. I doubt it will take 90 days, unless Ada takes longer than most others that I've heard about. It didn't take mine even a month, but they got a copy of one of my federal background checks that are far more exhaustive than the one they'll run and it went quick after that.

    Mine was back in 17 days... but then again I have had background checks through the same SO. one of the guys I know had his come back at about the 60 day mark.

    they might just have a lot to go through in the larger cites...

    I got mine quite a few years ago so probably not relevant to now. However, my wife got hers less than a year ago and received it in about 3 weeks. It may vary by county though.

    As I recall it has averaged 4-6 weeks over the years. As previously stated, it probably depends on the county and their personnel/workload.

    Idaho is a good permit as it covers considerably more than the average permit. That's why I have one in addition to a 218.

    A couple of years ago in Kootenai county it took about 40-45 days to get mine. It may have been a little less though. It's too bad the Idaho permit isn't honored in Washington. I don't have a need to go there often but if you follow the news it's be wise to carry when you do go there.

    I sure am. And Spokane Valley has it's moments too. The sad part is is that Spokane is so close a lot of the troublemakers end up over here causing problems. They can't be content with one city.

    To the OP it might take a bit longer than it did for me since Ada County has more people in it than Kootenai. I'm not sure how the SD in Ada is set up but at our SD the Records Dept handles the apps and fingerprinting in addition to their other duties. We don't have a dedicated person for the permits.

    Ada County has a dedicated desk and staff for the permit process. Leaving for vacation soon and sure wanted the permit before I venture out into the world.

    Nora Cole, I think that was her name, was very helpful. She's stationed at the concealed weapons permit desk just inside the Ada County sheriff's office door.

    I got my Idaho permit in early April and it did take about 90 days to process the application. My location of residence may have been a factor, perhaps US citizens are processed more quickly.

    In Bonneville county mine was just short of the 90 days about 1.5 years ago.
