It would seem to me leaving the battery at home would make you legal. It's what I do, and back in for states or seasons it is legal.

    FYI Last fall Idaho changed there regs to read: no electronic devise EXCEPT for lit reticles. So it is a non issue either way. you are fine even with a fully functioning reticle.

    Probably not, but it may be possible to get a non inletted stock & have it set up for a LH configuration. I did that with my last McMillan A5, Worked fine. If you are completely set on the GreyBull (great stock) call Chad Dixon @ LongRifles, Inc. He can make even a RH inletted stock go southpaw, very cool process & the only smith I use right now.

    BTW- Welcome to the frusterating world of being a Shouth paw!

    Thanks D.ID, I gave up on Idaho getting with the program on the reticles, and the year I stop checking they change it. Im very happy with that because I really like the PST.

    Just and FYI. Idaho does allow illuminated reticles. See the section I copied from the F&G Site. I also attached a copy of the regs.

    Weapon Restrictions
    Rifle and Shotgun
    In any hunt, including any-weapon seasons, it is unlawful to
    pursue or kill big game animals:
    By any means other than approved firearms,
    muzzleloaders and archery methods.
    With any electronic device attached to, or incorporated
    on, the firearm or scope; Except scopes containing
    battery powered or tritium lighted reticles are allowed.

    With any firearm that, in combination with a scope, sling
    and/or any attachments, weighs more than 16 pounds.
    With any fully automatic firearm.
    With any shotgun using shot smaller than #00 buck.
    With any rimfire rifle, rimfire handgun, or muzzleloading
    handgun, except for mountain lions.
