    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.

    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.

    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.

    I MUST respectfully dissagree with this statement. I can carry in an Applebees, a city park and a state park. If I carry where it is posted it's not a crime....
    I'd give up being able to carry in a few states over these differences any day.
    Touche Tenneseee.

    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.

    My only knowledge of knife law in Tennessee (extremely limited) deals with blade length, which cannot be over four inches or the knife is considered to be a weapon and one is guilty of "intent to go armed," and the TN permit does nothing to affect that one way or the other. Otherwise, I am unaware (which doesn't mean it isn't so) of any permit needed to carry a knife. One does need a separate permit to carry a collapsible baton.

    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
