Is the Tennessee Handgun Pemit a concealed or open carry permit?

Most states that have enacted a permit or license law,
have also mandated in the law that the handgun must be "concealed" when carried.

In the state of Tennessee, if a person carries a "loaded" handgun concealed or in the open,
they must have a valid TN Handgun Permit, or a valid permit or license from another state.

It is not mandated in the Tennessee Handgun Permit Law the mode of carry [I.e. open or concealed].

The majority of legally armed citizens in Tennessee carry their handgun in a concealed manner.
