    OR CWP Carry in ID

    Hey all,
    I'm going to be traveling to Idaho in a couple days, and I'm wrestling with whether to carry on my trip or not. I'll be traveling through WA which does not honor OR's CWP, so it'll be unloaded and locked in the toolbox for that portion of the trip, but ID does honor OR's. I've finally gotten to the point of carrying most everywhere I go, and would really feel much better bringing one with me, but am only hestitant because I haven't really studied ID's laws on the matter like I have OR's. Don't want to do something that's legal here without even realizing it's illegal there. Does anyone have a good simple source for ID's carry laws I could review before I go, or ideally does anyone know of any major difference between OR and ID law that I should be aware of, or should I just bring my OC spray and my lucky hat and cross my fingers until I'm able to study the laws better? Thanks everybody..!
    .40 is fine.

    Are you sure Idaho honors Oregon's permit? Last time I checked on Oregon's website it said they did not honor anyones permit and theirs was not honored by anyone.

    That is true for reciprocity, however according to ID law, the following applies:

    (g) 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.


    See section G below.

    Further more, while Oregon does not recognize any other states permit (as seen HERE), they have no bearing on what other states recognize, it is out of their jurisdiction to say what ID can and can not recognize.

    (11) The sheriff of a county may issue a license to carry a concealed
    weapon to those individuals between the ages of eighteen (18) and twenty-one
    (21) years who in the judgment of the sheriff warrant the issuance of the
    license to carry a concealed weapon. Such issuance shall be subject to
    limitations which the issuing authority deems appropriate. Licenses issued to
    individuals between the ages of eighteen (18) and twenty-one (21) years shall
    be easily distinguishable from regular licenses.
    (12) The requirement to secure a license to carry a concealed weapon under
    this section shall not apply to the following persons:
    (a) Officials of a county, city, state of Idaho, the United States, peace
    officers, guards of any jail, court appointed attendants or any officer of
    any express company on duty;
    (b) Employees of the adjutant general and military division of the state
    where military membership is a condition of employment when on duty;
    (c) Criminal investigators of the attorney general's office, criminal
    investigators of a prosecuting attorney's office, prosecutors and their
    deputies;
    (d) Any person outside the limits of or confines of any city while
    engaged in lawful hunting, fishing, trapping or other lawful outdoor
    activity;
    (e) Any publicly elected Idaho official;
    (f) Retired peace officers or detention deputies with at least ten (10)
    years of service with the state or a political subdivision as a peace
    officer or detention deputy and who have been certified by the peace
    officer standards and training council;
    (g) 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.

    (13) When issuing a license pursuant to this section, the sheriff may
    require the applicant to demonstrate familiarity with a firearm and shall
    accept any of the following, provided the applicant may select which one:
    (a) Completion of any hunter education or hunter safety course approved
    by the department of fish and game or a similar agency of another state;
    or
    (b) Completion of any national rifle association firearms safety or
    training course, or any national rifle association hunter education
    course; or
    (c) Completion of any firearms safety or training course or class
    available to the general public offered by a law enforcement agency,
    community college, college, university, or private or public institution
    or organization or firearms training school, utilizing instructors
    certified by the national rifle association or the Idaho state police; or
    (d) Completion of any law enforcement firearms safety or training course
    or class offered for security guards, investigators, special deputies, or
    any division or subdivision of a law enforcement agency or security
    enforcement agency; or
    (e) Presents evidence or equivalent experience with a firearm through
    participation in organized shooting competition or military service; or
    (f) Is licensed or has been licensed to carry a firearm in this state or
    a county or municipality, unless the license has been revoked for cause;
    or
    (g) Completion of any firearms training or training or safety course or
    class conducted by a state certified or national rifle association
    certified firearms instructor.
    (14) A person carrying a concealed weapon in violation of the provisions
    of this section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.
    (15) The sheriff of the county where the license was issued or the sheriff
    of the county where the person resides shall have the power to revoke a
    license subsequent to a hearing in accordance with the provisions of chapter
    52, title 67, Idaho Code, for any of the following reasons:
    (a) Fraud or intentional misrepresentation in the obtaining of a license;
    or
    (b) Misuse of a license, including lending or giving a license to another
    person, or duplicating a license, or using a license with the intent to
    unlawfully cause harm to a person or property; or
    (c) The doing of an act or existence of a condition which would have been
    grounds for the denial of the license by the sheriff; or
    (d) The violation of any of the terms of this section; or
    (e) The applicant is adjudicated guilty of or receives a withheld
    judgment for a crime which would have disqualified him from initially
    receiving a license.
    (16) A person twenty-one (21) years of age or older issued a license to
    carry a concealed weapon is exempt from any requirement to undergo a records
    check at the time of purchase or transfer of a firearm from a federally
    licensed firearms dealer. However, a temporary emergency license issued under
    subsection (5) of this section shall not exempt the holder of the license from
    any records check requirement. Temporary emergency licenses shall be easily
    distinguishable from regular licenses.
    (17) The attorney general is authorized to negotiate reciprocal agreements
    with other states related to the recognition of licenses to carry concealed
    weapons. The Idaho state police shall keep a copy and maintain a record of all
    such agreements, which shall be made available to the public.
    (18) The provisions of this section are hereby declared to be severable
    and if any provision of this section or the application of such provision to
    any person or circumstance is declared invalid for any reason, such
    declaration shall not affect the validity of remaining portions of this
    section.

    Your good to go in Idaho as already stated. On your way Through Washington, stop and apply for a nonresident license. Very simple, and mine came on the 30th day from Spokane.

    Well, that just stinks about WA. You could always open carry loaded... or carry it with you in the cab of your rig, just not loaded (have a mag in your pocket).

    I hear it's because the states WA doesn't recognize is due to the lack of mental health background checks. WA checks your mental health background when other states do not. WA has a short list of reciprocity guests. I wish it was like the LEO bill, where you can carry in all 50 states. It sure is convenient when traveling.

    Have a safe trip!

    Oregon also has a very odd, restrictive, almost May Issue policy for non-resident permits, but only for WA, ID, CA, or NV residents. http://egov.oregon.gov/OSP/ID/chl.shtml

    Q: I am a Washington resident who has recently obtained a concealed weapons permit issued by the State of Washington. Is my permit valid to carry a concealed weapon while in the State of Oregon? If not, can a non-Oregon resident apply for a permit?
    A: Oregon does not recognize concealed weapons permits from any other state. If you wish to review the law you can go to: http://www.leg.state.or.us/ors/166.html and read 166.291. As you can see from ORS 166.291(8) which says "The county sheriff may waive the residency requirement in subsection (1)(c) of this section for a resident of a contiguous state who has a compelling business interest or other legitimate demonstrated need," the sheriff of each county has some discretion for a resident of a contiguous state. You would need to check with the sheriffs to see what their requirements are.

    I thought about that, as I travel into or through WA several times a year, but am thinking I might just apply for my Utah permit instead, which is cheap and easy and covers me for like 13 states, including WA, IIRC. Thanks again all for the info and suggestions.

    That may be true, but Oregon and Washington have had a history of ******* matches over recognizing licenses and certifications from each other in other fields as well. That has been one of the other probable reasons as to why they don't recongnize each others ccw permits. In this case, I put the blame on Oregon because it has refused to recognize any other states permits. I think Washington has a "turnabout is fair play stance."
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.
