Well, it was approved by the commission, and the hearing took about 10 minutes from start to finish.
I received the documentation about 4 weeks later.
I sent a copy to the State Police (they run the background checks out here), and let them know I was going to apply for a carry license.
They called a couple of times to update me, and after about 3 1/2 weeks told me that I was good to go.
I applied for a carry license and picked it up this morning.
It looks like I'm good now.
I think this being a gun forum, most if not all know about states having different definitions of weapons. And, if you had paid close attention the black powder comment was in regards to Pennsylvania not Idaho.Sorry to respond to an old post .... but note that you best check your state regs on black powder. For example, some states state that 'historic firearms' (non-modernized replica or an original produced before 1898, including black powder guns) are not deemed 'firearms' by the state regulations and therefore are not subject to state firearm statutes. Idaho does NOT have any such verbiage ... old guns and black powder guns in Idaho are considered to be firearms and are subject to all firearm statutes (as of the date this is being posted).

I'm THRILLED for you, but at the same time disgusted by what I view as legal chicanery by various parties (especially the AG) in Idaho.Well, it was approved by the commission, and the hearing took about 10 minutes from start to finish. ...
