CWL Reciprocity with Other States

CAUTION! Gun Concealed carry laws vary greatly from state to state and even within counties and municipalities within those states. Therefore, if you have an Idaho Concealed Weapons License and are planning to visit a state that has concealed weapons license reciprocity with Idaho, remember that you are subject to the laws of that state, including any county or city ordinances, that apply to concealed weapons licenses and concealed weapons carry. It is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with those laws, ordinances and codes and comply with them. Concealed weapons license reciprocity in any form is simply that, reciprocity, and it does not immunize a person from criminal or civil consequences for breaking the law. Also, please note that some state grant reciprocity to Idaho Concealed Carry Licenses for concealed firearms only, and do not extend reciprocity for other weapons that Idaho includes under its Concealed Weapons Licenses, such as dirks, dirk knives, bowie knives, daggers or any other deadly or dangerous weapon.
