Concealed Weapons Permit

Concealed Weapons Permits

Boise County Sheriff


Application Process

The sheriff of a county must issue a permit to carry a weapon concealed to any person who is not disqualified see Idaho Code 18-3302 (a)-(n). An original permit application consists of the completion of the State of Idaho Concealed Weapons License Application form and a complete set of the applicant’s fingerprints. The Bureau of Criminal Identification (BCI) conducts a state record check and forwards the fingerprints to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The FBI conducts a national fingerprint-based record check and returns the result to the sheriff. The required background check takes approximately 90 days to process.


To renew your permit you must come in 30 days prior to the expiration date. There is a $10.00 late fee to renew up to 90 days after the expiration date. If it is over 90 days, you must go through the initial process over again.


Initial permit $62.45

Renewal $37.70
