    Booked a fly fishing trip to Montana in sept & wondering what the Idaho reciprocity is for wa ccp. It says that it's honored,but then says something about an enhanced Idaho license. Montana is a no go from what I've read. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks y'all.

    <- Why there aren't any school shootings in Israel!

    Last time I was in Montana was 2004, couldn't carry then even with both WA and OR licenses. I was in our motorhome so I had the .45 on the floor beside me and my IWB holster on and the 12 GA inthe bedroom. Luckily for me as two Spanish speaking "gentlemen" thought I would be easy pickings. They were wrong. Didn't have to do anything but show I was armed and they left!

    MT recognizes both WA and OR licenses according to Handgunlaw.us. Check it out here http://www.handgunlaw.us/states/montana.pdf as there are add'l provisos for carry when outside cities and engaged in activities.

    Since when???? Did you go to the source?? The Montana website and see what it had to say, and not from billy bob upriver.

    Looked at five sites that said Montana didn't recognize wa permits and then stumbled on the montana doj site.

    Can you tell us which five sites you checked so we can avoid them?

    I checked both www.handgunlaw.us and www.usacarry.com and both correctly show that Montana recognizes Washington.

    It is a felony to carry a non-checked firearm on Amtrak in Montana. Also, I believe that all bars are a no go in Montana, which is similar to Washington, with the exception of being slightly stricter.
