Idaho Concealed Carry Reciprocity Changes

The Enhanced Idaho Concealed Carry license is bearing some fruit.  This list on the Idaho State Police web page shows which states recognized both the standard Idaho concealed carry license, and the new enhanced license:

Note that Nevada, New Mexico, South Carolina, Virginia, and Washington State recognize only the enhanced license.  If you only have the standard license, and especially if your current license is coming up for renewal in the next few months, you might want to seriously consider taking the class required for the enhanced license.  Nevada and Washington are just a hop skip and a jump from Idaho, so even if you do not think you would ever visit those states, think real hard about it.  My friend T. Allen Hoover teaches the required class every month or two.

I wish we had this in Arizona. Our concealed carry laws are good, but we need an enhanced permit for those of us who travel.

And, I really, really wish Oregon would at least allow me to get an Oregon permit if they won't recognize AZ. I have family in Portland and cannot in any way carry there.

Interesting. I have a Washington State CPL, which Idaho recognizes, but Washington does not recognize the Idaho CCW. All Washington required to get the license was a background check - no classes or anything. Well, and pay the fee, of course.

Georgia isn't in the list. If ID recognizes GA then there's reciprocity.

Probably caused by Georgia not responding to a letter. I'll go talk to the guy in the A-G's office in charge of getting those letters tomorrow and find out what is holding that up.
