TN is better?.....lol
This is a discussion on Kentucky Vs Tennessee within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Anyone know why a TN CCW allows you to carry in Nevada and S. Carolina whereas a KY CCW will not? Thanks....

Bottom line is probably that TN has agreements with those states, and KY doesn't. Most of these agreements are individually made state to state.
EOD - Initial success or total failure
For the same reason N.C. can carry in S.C.. N.C. can carry in Florida.
Florida can carry in N.C. Florida can't carry in S.C.
States don't have to be rational.
Gun control is hitting what you aim at
Most likely it has something to do with laws in Nevada and South Carolina...Tennessee's system probably "meets" some technical requirement that Kentucky's currently does not. IIRC, Kentucky recognizes all facially valid permits like Tennessee does, so that wouldn't be it. I suspect it will take members from those states to answer.
Thanks for the replies. I figured it was some small requirement.
Does a TN permit allow one to carry "weapons"--knives, etc. in addition to firearms? I've wondered whether that is ever an issue in reciprocity...
Each state decides reciprocity depending on the other states' licensing requirements. If the other state has lax laws or training requirements, they won't make the "accepted" list. That's the reason some state's licenses are almost universally accepted...Florida and Utah comes to mind. They have a higher standard to meet to qualify. The other states recognize this. That's why I'm in favor of a national standard to meet, and end this reciprocity bull.
The Tennessee permit is actually termed a "Handgun Carry Permit," which according to a state AG's opinion (not tested in court) also confers the opportunity to carry openly. I do not intend to test that theory, however.
Could it possibly be that Nevada just hasnt gotten around to it yet? Unless I am mistaken(it happens regularly) Tenn. has just recently been added to the Nevada list.
Regarding KY; the KY license is for concealed weapons, not just handguns. In KY, you can legally carry a sap, or a microtech automatic knife on the CCW license.
Additionally, they recognize other states licenses that allow the same. e.g. Florida
