Idaho’s firearm laws are fairly relaxed, when compared to most states.
Residents of Idaho may purchase firearms in any adjoining state (Montana, Washington, Oregon, Wyoming, Nevada, and Utah) and transport them into Idaho. Any Adjoining stare may purchase rifles or shotguns in Idaho and transport them back to their state. It is illegal to handle a firearm in a “careless, reckless, or negligent manner or without due caution and circumspection” when it results in the firing of the firearm and injury to a person.
