    Note to Tennessee CCW Holders : State Is Receiving 600 NEW CCW Applications Per Day

    Just a quick note for my fellow Tennesseans on Renewals and New Issues of Concealed Carry Licenses. I called the State today regarding my renewal, because I had gotten a renewal notice via mail on Friday. (It appears that even if you have a renewal pending you will likely get the notice from the State anyway.) Once I had verified my renewal was still in process I inquired about wait times. They are trying to meet or beat the 90 day window for getting these out, but as you guessed they are back logged. I was told that the State has been receiving 600 NEW applications for CCW Licenses per day on the average. This of course slows things down, but I guess it is a good sign for us as a state in regards to citizens exercising their right.

    Thought this might help those waiting for renewals and new issues.

    Just so you're aware, Tennessee does not issue concealed carry permits. They are Handgun carry permits, the gun may be carried openly or concealed.

    This is good news though, glad to see more folks joining the ranks.

    Yeah, I know. Force of habit when referencing them. In speaking with others on the forum I have gotten use to the generic term of CC.

    I'd be more glad if all these new folks were taking courses on how to safely handle and operate said firearms. I've been seeing too many people in gun stores who don't even know how to rack a slide or open a cylinder wanting to buy right then and there because they "have" to have a gun.

    I was in a gun store in tampa a few weeks ago and had to show the sales person how to rack the slide. True this was a Baretta Neos 22 so it's a bit different, but still.

    I don't remember how much money I had to send the state when I got my HCP. I don't even remember how much the last renewal was and that was less than a year ago. But it seems to me if the good folks around here are sending in 600 new applications per day the state could afford to hire a few extra people to process all these applications even if its on a temporary basis.

    A new permit is $115. Part of that money (don't know how much) goes to the outfit doing the fingerprints. The rest goes to the State. Mine took EXACTLY 90 days from submittal to being mailed. A few extra days for USPS, so 93 days total.

    I think it must be about the same here in Nebraska. There are dozens of schools in my area and they are continually full (last time I checked, around January), week and weeks in advance. I finally found a spot. The class had 30 or 40 people, I forget, but it was full. Mine took a couple of months to arrive.

    IMO, it is a beautiful thing to have so many people carrying. Something I think is even more wonderful, with the millions of handgun carriers, look at how many accidental or poor shooting incidents we have? You know the gun grabbers are drooling for such stories to try and beat back the carry laws. I hope people keep it up.

    Are the store clerks "too busy" to show somebody how to safely rack a slide?

    Awesome for the folks in Tennessee! glad to hear it. And I am going to assume that everyone that has gotten a new permit either has been or will be trained in gun safety! Because.. Well because we all know that everyone is responsible.

    You totally missed my point. People aren't educating themselves on firearms before heading to a gun store. Do you just decide to go buy a car or any other merchandise before at least researching it? It's NOT the sales person's responsibility to teach you how to operate a firearm.

    There are beginners classes for exactly that reason.

    When you got your drivers license you took drivers ED right? You certainly didn't just roll into a car dealer and expect the salesman to teach you how to drive.
