    Time to get a CWP Thread and some how to.

    I saw that in another state thread this was made for people that are getting their permit. So I thought about making one for IDAHO.
    In Idaho there is a 90day that it can take up to. My friend in the marines just got his after 32days. So lets see how long a normal person will take.

    I'm a Navy Vet and needed to bring my Mil. ID, DD214 for honorable discharge. and my Drivers License.
    A passport is accepted. Drivers License or ID Card provided by Idaho Department of Transportation is needed.
    I had to go to Baraster Offices not where go get your drivers license.
    Took about 30min filed out 2 pieces of paper work and did my finger printing.
    208-577-3112 is their number
    Hours of operation was like 8AM till 4PM

    Me (DC13)
    Date of request 17NOV11
    Date getting the permit (At day 90 as of 15FEB12 and still nothing) Received 16FED12

    Date of Request: 14DEC11
    Date getting the permit: 10FEB12

    I live in Ada county. Both myself, Mom, Dad, and my brother go to the Canyon County Sheriffs in Caldwell to obtain/renew our CWPs. The firearm safety course requirement (so far as it was the last 2 times I was there for CWP renewel) is as simple as writing down, on the application, what firearms training you have had. That's it. You don't have to provide any kind of actual proof that you did in fact attend and passed said firearms safety/training course.

    Of course you will need to provide a valid Idaho drivers license, submit to finger printing, wait for the background check, and pay the fee.

    However - I would say that if you in fact do not have any kind of training under your belt, it is always a good idea to get some training and then practice what you learned as much as you can.

    While I agree everyone that has a handgun should have training...I don't agree it should be government mandated training.

    We do not have a problem here in WA (your neighbors you know, and we can carry in ID all we want with our WA CPL) and there is no government mandated training to obtain a CPL here in WA.

    I was trained by my dad over 50 years ago, I trained all my own children, and am now training my grandchildren. That is the way it should be. For those that do not have a father/grandfather to teach them safe firearms handling and shooting, there are classes available...but they should not be mandated by the government....yes, I know, I went through hunters training class, including handling and firing weapons, back in 1962, (I don't think it was manditory back then though) but I still don't think it should be government mandated.

    I've been hearing from more and more people that Ada County is taking longer than 90 days, I really am not understanding what is taking this county so long when the others are handling it in a matter of days. So many states (even ones that are much more populous than Idaho) have a 30 day window. Idaho has a 90 day window and Ada county is using every bit of it and sometimes going over. Are they purposely delaying the process for other reasons?

    I open carry because if a bad guy attacks me anyway, I am best prepared to respond appropriately, with minimal fuss, and my bearing of a firearm is not infringed by having to lift my shirt, pull back my jacket, or unzip some pouch. Forcing people to carry concealed is an infringement on the right to keep and bear arms.

    Elmore County was pretty swift. Both my Wife and my CCW took less than 45 days, I know we don't have the volume of applications but it shouldn't take over 90 days.

    If ADA county is breaking the law by taking more than 90 days than someone needs to be held accountable. They should be looking for a new job at the very least.

    If it takes more than a day or two, they are just sitting on it, or doing them when they have absolutely nothing else to do.
    Mine was in Washington...went to the Okanogan County Sheriff's office...took maybe 15 minutes, electronic figerprints and all, on a Thursday or was it Friday?, anyway, had it in the mail on Monday. (don't remeber exactly, was a while ago. Renewals are same day.)

    Should take just as long as it does to purchase a new pistol after you have a CPL. Same process except for teh finger prints.
