Handgun Restrictions

When a Tennessee Handgun Permit is issued, a permit holder may carry
any type of handgun they own or possess, and as many as they desire.
 

Is a Tennessee Handgun Permit a concealed permit ?

Although the majority of Tennessee Permit Holders carry their weapon concealed, it is not mandated in the
Tennessee codes that a handgun must be concealed. To learn more on this subject, click on holster below

belt   



Make sure your pistol is in good working condition prior to taking your shooting qualification.
Here is what happened on one range.

If you possess a Tennessee Handgun Permit or are in the process of getting one, this publication is a must when you travel.
It gives you all the information you need to know about Tennessee and any state you visit. 

Don't get in trouble because you did not know the rules and regulations about carrying
[did you hear about the Shelby County Handgun Permit Holder who was caught in Illinois on top of the Sears Towers with her handgun].
She will be lucky to get out of Illinois without a felony charge because of this incident.  This is what can happen. 

Please remember that it is YOUR obligation to know the rules and restrictions when you carry your handgun,
no matter what state you are in.  This publication helps you meet this task.  Only $5.  Click on cover to order.

This publication is is a MUST for anyone who has a valid TN Handgun Permit.
