    Going to Pigeon Forge TN, need carry info for TN

    Hello!

    I and my lovely wife will be vacationing in Pigeon forge/ Gatlinburg TN for a few days this summer.

    I have a few questions regarding CCW in TN. I looked up the law, but couldn't translate a few of the finer points from legalese, to english.

    #1 Is a posted business off limits, by law?

    #2 Is the resturant off limits if it serves wine? (I don't drink, btw,)

    #3 State parks?

    #4 Any especially nice firing ranges/gun shops down that way?

    #5 this is a bit off topic, but if you have been to Pigeon Forge, or Gatlinburg, is there anything there that is a must see/do?


    Thanks!

    Bryan

    Well, isn't Piegon Forge where "Dolly World" is? Does she really use those for CC? That's WHAT I've heard! &^%$##$%(*&^ Wow.....

    You might try this too: http://www.handgunlaw.us/ It was "down" when I just tried it, but it has some nice summaries.

    Have fun!

    #5, Ripley's Museum is fun. Also check out Smokey Mountain Knife Works. Tons of new knives and what not for sale, but the real attractions for me are the collections and displays of old knives and cutlery. Do a google search for SMKW to get hours, directions, etc.

    Have fun, John

    Um, yes, I don't know, and I am NOT about to ask.
    Handgunlaw was down when I tried looking this up, which is another reason I posted here. LOL!

    Actually it is back up now, but I am not much clearer on a couple of points.

    #1 Can I carry and eat in a resturant that serves wine or beer?

    #2 If a building has a "no guns" sign is it off limits legally?

    Actually Ripleys was already high on my list, but SMKW... OOooooh! Now there is some place I am going to have to spend some quality time. :)

    Ripleys Aquarium....
    Can't carry in an establishment that sells alchohol for on premises consumption... (Applebee's, etc.)
    If a business has "no carry" postings, then you may not carry....(rare)
    State parks are "no carry"....

    A posted business is off-limits for CCW.

    A restaurant that serves alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises is off-limits for CCW.

    State parks are off-limits for CCW, as are national parks and forests (by state law) for CCW.

    With questions four and five, others must help you.

    On a more cheerful note, enjoy your stay!!

    Thanks, everyone!

    I am kinda bummed out over not being able to carry in some of the resturants, and state parks.

    Looks like I need to garb a can of OC spray. LOL!

    Indoor Range

    I have visited Pigeon Forge several times, really love it there the people are what makes it.

    There is a great indoor range just a few miles away, again it is run by great folk.
    Here it is.

    PS as others have said Do not miss Smoky Mountain Knife Works. It alone is worth the trip

    #1 Is a posted business off limits, by law?
    If it's posted with the proper 30.06 signage. The "gun picture in ban sign" isn't "formal" but I think all they can do is boot you off the premises and maybe cause some inconvenience with the cops.

    #2 Is the resturant off limits if it serves wine? (I don't drink, btw,)
    Yes. Any establishment that serves alcohol for on-site consumption is off-limits.

    #3 State parks?
    Yes, state parks are off limits. Don't forget about the bear that killed the 6 year-old girl here in TN recently.

    #4 Any especially nice firing ranges/gun shops down that way?
    I don't remember any, but I'll bet there are.

    #5 this is a bit off topic, but if you have been to Pigeon Forge, or Gatlinburg, is there anything there that is a must see/do?

    I've been several times. Traffic is extremely slow going through the area, so plan to make time if you've got a dinner reservation, etc! Visit the Veteran's War Memorial Museum. I did not see Dollywood; my husband says it's smaller than you think it should be. And as others have said, go to Smoky Mountain Knife Works, Ripley's museum & aquarium. Go to town early and find a parking spot, and there's shops everywhere. Wear your walking shoes!

    I used to vist the Pigeon forge/ Gatlinburg area many decades ago. I couldn't believe the development when I went back about 3 years ago. EVERYTHING has changed. Far too commercial for me now. But I know that is not what you asked. Have a great trip and be safe.
