Idaho does not license firearms dealers. However, firearms dealers are subject to state laws governing gun sales generally. See the Idaho Private Sales section for further information.

Pursuant to the Brady Act, federally licensed firearms dealers must conduct background checks on prospective purchasers each time the dealer transfers a firearm. See the Idaho Background Checks section.
