    My goose gun is a 2003 Beretta Xtrema gen 1 and my duck gun is a 1987 Rem 11/87 special purpose. Really enjoy the Beretta but would have bought a kick off stock if they had been available at that time. 11-87 is as ugly as a mud fence but she keeps on running.

    Idaho laws are a bit different than what Our Prissydent says





    / Gun & Weapon Law
    Purchasing Firearms
    There is no state permit required for the purchase of any rifle, shotgun, or handgun.
    It is unlawful to directly or indirectly sell to any minor under the age of eighteen years any weapon without the written consent of the parent or guardian of the minor.

    No state permit is required to possess a rifle, shotgun or handgun.

    A minor under 18 must have permission of or be accompanied by a parent or guardian; a minor under 12 must have both permission and be accompanied by an adult.

    Statute Title 18, Chapter 33. Firearms, Explosives and Other Deadly Weapons
    Concealed Weapons
    Idaho statute allows residents 18 years of age, not disqualified from having a permit, to carry a concealed firearm statewide without a permit except in certain designated places including a courthouse, juvenile detention or jail facility, or public or private school unless specifically authorized.
    A person does not have to have a concealed weapons license to carry or be in possession of a deadly weapon or firearm in the following circumstances:

    • Any deadly weapon located in plain view;
    • Any lawfully possessed shotgun or rifle;
    • Any deadly weapon concealed in a motor vehicle;
    • A firearm that is not loaded and is secured in a case;
    • A firearm that is disassembled or permanently altered such that it is not readily operable; and
    • Any deadly weapon concealed by a person who is:
      • Over eighteen (18)) years of age;
      • A citizen of the United States or a current member of the armed forces of the 1United States; and
      • Is not disqualified from being issued a license under Idaho Code § 18-3302(11)(b) – (n).
    A person who does have a concealed weapons license may carry a deadly weapon or firearm concealed and loaded in a vehicle.

    It is unlawful for any person to carry a concealed weapon on or about his person when intoxicated or under the influence of an intoxicating drink or drug.

    Concealed weapon licenses are still available from your County Sheriff. Residents must secure one to gain reciprocity in other states. The license is valid for five years.

    Statute 18-3302. Issuance of Licenses to Carry Concealed Weapons
    Under 18
    It is unlawful for any person under the age of eighteen (18) years to possess or have in possession any weapon, as defined in Idaho Code, unless he or she:
    • Has the written permission of his or her parent or guardian to possess the weapon; or
    • Is accompanied by his or her parent or guardian while he or she has the weapon in his possession.
    Idaho Code § 18-3302E.
    It is unlawful for a minor to possess or to provide a minor with a handgun, fully automatic weapon or sawed-off shotgun regardless of parental consent except as specifically provided.

    Exceptions to these general prohibitions are listed in Idaho Code § 18-3302F, including participating in a class or competition, on private property, or lawfully engaged in hunting.

    Converted both 1187 SPs to dedicated turkey guns. Use SP10 for dedicated goose hunts but sees the occasional duck blind. Cynergy gets most of the duck work now but I have two Xtrema2s in the safe backups.

    My favorite is my Remington SP-10 which I bought in 1991 for $799. I had no money and put it on layaway which lasted about two weeks. I then went in and put it on the credit card and have enjoyed it since even though I don't use it near as much as in the past. Now it is only for goose and turkey and is probably the only gun besides my Remington 700 that I will never sell.

    My other waterfowl guns I bought just this year.
