    I have read alot through the idaho laws and have found nothing about the "must notify". Have i overlooked something?

    Also another question.....I am waiting on my Idaho and Utah CWP's. I have been OC'ing for a while now, when i get into my vehicle i remove the mag and unload the chamber and reholster my gun on my hip, and put the clip on the dash.....Is it legal to have it unloaded in my holster on my hip?

    Must notify in terms of what, the question is kind of vague. Also, keep in mind people from other states come through here and look, just may not post.

    If you are referring to notification of law enforcement then no, you don't have to tell them about any gun if you are pulled over. Personally, I do and it has been met favorably each time. I do it because if I was in there shoes I would like to know as well.

    You can also carry in your car with the gun loaded in Idaho.

    There is no notification requirement in Idaho. Plus, most LEO's will know when they run your plate or drivers license number - it's common practice to flag that information when a driver also has a CCW permit - and dispatch informs the officer.

    Why would you unload to carry in a vehicle in Idaho? Idaho law does not require a license to OC anywhere, loaded or unloaded.

    jimd_21 - Thanks for joining the forum! Sorry you didn't get any answers for a while.

    As stated above, Idaho law does not require you to notify if carrying, but I always do (the few times I have been pulled over).

    Coincidentally, both times I have been pulled over (once for speeding and once for running a red light) I was given a warning, no ticket. Not sure if it's related to telling them I am carrying, being very polite, or just luck, but that's my experience. Both were with Boise city cops, and both times I was carrying concealed.

    One thing I would stress, even though it's obvious, is that to meet the requirements of open carry in a vehicle, the gun must be plainly visible through casual observation from outside the vehicle.

    Other sections of note:

    It shall be unlawful for any person to carry a concealed weapon on or about his person when intoxicated or under the influence of an intoxicating drink or drug.

    http://legislature.idaho.gov/idstat/...CT18-3302B.htm

    Idaho law also allows a person to carry concealed without a permit "in the person’s place of abode or fixed place of business, or on property in which the person has any ownership or leasehold interest"

    http://legislature.idaho.gov/idstat/...ECT18-3302.htm

    Of course, you should review the statutes yourself as well.

    And concealed without a permit in non-incorporated areas, outside city limits.

    don't know about the whole "notifying" thing, but I do know that your concealed weapon permit number is the same as your driver's license number, so when they run your name/DL through the system, the CWP is going to show up.

    Besides, it's Idaho. Dang near everyone is packing, except up here in Berkeley North.
